Lifestyle Medicine Interest Groups

According to the AAMC, Lifestyle Medicine is one of the newest medical specialties. Our mission is to share the message of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine on every university, medical school, and health professions campus across the country with the establishment of Lifestyle Medicine Interest Groups (LMIGs). LMIGs are the perfect way to connect, share ideas, collaborate on projects and learn how to practice Lifestyle Medicine.
