Doctor of Behavioral Health Program at Arizona State University
The potential benefits of having a health care system that places an emphasis on behavior modification cannot be trivialized...The DBH program is an astounding and progressive step toward a health care system that places equal emphasis on both medical and lifestyle changes, and challenges patients to take an active role in their health.

Recognizing lifestyle as a powerful tool for prevention, he offers his short list of behaviors that influence health: feet, forks, fingers, sleep, stress, and love, referring to the first three as the 'master levers' of medical destiny. ... "We must move from our narrow vision of health care to a prevention-oriented system that is truly about the cultivation of health at its source."
Changes in Healthcare: Opportunities in Lifestyle Medicine
The best minds in the business of healthcare gathered at the first-ever Lifestyle Medicine Practice Management Workshop to guide Lifestyle Medicine providers in positioning themselves and their practices for success. We asked several of these thought leaders to share their perspective on what they see as critical changes underway in healthcare and how practitioners of Lifestyle Medicine can make the most of these opportunities.
Corey Howard, MD, FACP
“Within my practice I apply Lifestyle Medicine in the initial consultation, letting patients decide how they want to change. From there, I take them from where they are to where they want to be.” In an effort to help strengthen physician skills in Lifestyle Medicine, Dr. Howard has developed a tool for physicians to talk with patients about lifestyle change, a tool structured around the Transtheoretical Model, or TTM.
