Description
Community Healthcare Centers are an integral part of the US healthcare network. This workshop will contribute to the future practice of lifestyle medicine for attendees by illustrating barriers, mitigation strategies and best practices in grant writing for implementing lifestyle medicine within a community healthcare setting. This workshop will provide attendees with practical tools to facilitate the implementation of lifestyle medicine in their own healthcare setting.
Time
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
2:00 PM
The workshop will provide more behavioral lifestyle medicine tools and resources for the clinical encounter. Attendees will learn advanced techniques that they will be able to immediately implement in their practices and feel more empowered to engage with patients to initiate and maintain behavior change.
Time
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Strategies for Successfully Making the Case & Securing the Investment.  One of the most common questions and concerns raised from LM colleagues is how to effectively state the case for LM to system executives, payors and other stakeholders.  Our experience at a large integrated health system has highlighted that a refined skill set in positioning messages, garnering enthusiasm of stakeholders and communicating successes is critical step in the growth of the field of lifestyle medicine. Personal enthusiasm for lifestyle medicine is not enough, nor is sharing evidence of the effectiveness of lifestyle medicine interventions.  This information must be channeled into an effective platform to propel the adoption of lifestyle medicine.
Time

Description
Standard preprofessional, medical and residency training programs all too often lack adequate lifestyle medicine curricula. With more than 80% of medical costs in the US attributed to treating lifestyle-related chronic disease, incorporation of lifestyle medicine education and training to treat the underlying root cause of chronic disease is critical to effectively address both patient health and the financial burden of health care. In this workshop, we will feature a myriad of prominent LM academic leaders from institutions such as Harvard University, Loma Linda University, Metropolitan State University of Denver, Stanford University and University of South Carolina- Greenville that are leading the charge and effectively integrating Lifestyle Medicine into education. This workshop will provide support and next steps to academic faculty seeking to effectively incorporate lifestyle medicine into a variety of academic settings from undergraduate, bachelor, master, doctoral, medical school, and residency.
Time
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
9:00 AM
This workshop teaches a model for using A Lifestyle Medicine Approach to Pediatric Obesity in the Medical Home. This unique approach is evidence based and will strengthen participant's knowledge and use of Lifestyle Medicine by reinforcing all 6 pillars as they relate to healthy weight, and reviewing behavioral change psychology. This approach was created to improve consistency among providers and is grounded in the Transtheoretical Model of stage of change. Motivational interviewing and positive psychology are utilized to move patients through the early stages of change. For those patients and families who are ready for change, SMART goals, bite-size office education, and at-home learning tools will be shared with participants. We emphasize using culturally sensitive and trauma informed nutrition education and attention to the social determinants of health. Our approach, developed in 2019, is currently being utilized and continually evaluated at our medical home, Center for Pediatric Medicine, which is the largest medicaid clinic in South Carolina and affiliated with The University of South Carolina School of Medicine, Upstate Campus. Ten other practices in SC have been taught this model and have implemented portions of it that best fit in their busy practice, with overwhelmingly positive feedback. This workshop will provide the opportunity for pediatric providers to strengthen the use of Lifestyle Medicine in their practice by integrating portions of our model that would benefit their individual practices.
Time
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
9:00 AM
In order for lifestyle medicine to continue to grow as a practice, we need to understand all influences on healthy lifestyle choices.  This means that clinicians must understand the limits of individual choice and the influence of the cultures in which our patients work. The wellness industry is a 4.6 trillion-dollar enterprise of mostly unproven tactics that are more commercial in aspirations than healthy lifestyle promoting objectives.  Roughly a third of that is spent on workplace related efforts. = Employers are interested because they know the cost of poor health, not only in pharmacy and medical claims, but also in employee satisfaction, productivity and other health and wellbeing related attributes.  We don't want Lifestyle Medicine to fail like Workplace Wellness.  In order for employers to see successful lifestyle medicine outcomes, they need to understand and be lead on how to create a wellbeing culture that supports healthy lifestyles.  Otherwise, our efforts will be met with the challenge of our patients swimming upstream, against the current of an unsupportive workplace. This workshop will position the participant to inform and lead efforts with employers on how to position the workplace culture to support healthy lifestyle choices. The longitudinal lifestyle medicine programs, like D.P.P. and C.H.I.P., that are being delivered in the workplace are helpful, but when you look at the data, there is room for improvement.  The impact is great for some and non-existent for others.  Furthermore, the data from these participants as collected further out past the end of the program shows a decline in the advances made. One reason is that these changes are being made in a vacuum.  We must change the workplace culture to support healthy lifestyles in order to achieve sustained and more broad adoption of healthy habits.  Furthermore, the Lifestyle Medicine pillar of relationships is grossly under-represented in our ACLM strategy tool kit.  Workplace relationships are critical to not only the lifestyle choices we make but also our stress levels and the impact on our sleep. Just think about your own workplace experience.  How often have your efforts to adopt or maintain a healthy habit been thwarted by a well-intentioned colleague who brings in left over treats?  How often have you lost sleep because of a work relationship or an interaction that was unfavorable?  The culture of wellbeing strategy addresses this important pillar.
Time
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
9:00 AM
Through this workshop, presenters aim for attendees to be able to develop self-efficacy & competency in both personal practice as well as professional application of teaching evidence-based nutrition to patients/ clients in a simplified, easy-to-adopt format; practice what we preach or role model healthy lifestyle behaviors for those around us; understand fundamentals of how lifestyle behaviors affect women’s hormonal health, longevity, and reproductive biology;  educate & advocate for women’s health in our spheres of influence be it health systems, clinical practices, or other professional and community/social set-ups; know how to access American College of Lifestyle Medicine’s well-curated library of downloadable member resources, patient care tools, etc.; and finally envision/create S.M.A.R.T. goals for their individual Lifestyle Medicine career/action plan.
Time
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
9:00 AM
Nuts and Bolts for Implementation Into Real-World Practice.  Shared Medical Appointments are an essential part of Lifestyle Medicine Practice. Counseling and education in group settings represents an evidence based and practical way to deliver lifestyle interventions. However, SMAs often do not succeed due to provider burnout or discomfort with the format. (Graham et al., 2021) To solve this issue, education on SMAs is essential. At the Last ACLM Conference, ACLM hosted an SMA discussion group. During the group discussion, many attendees stated they did not know they could even bill for shared medical appointments. Dr. Sannidhi, Dr. Thompson and Dr. Mirsky are experienced in running Shared Medical Appointments and Dr. Sannidhi and Dr. Mirsky have published on shared medical appointments. They will be able to help attendees navigate the challenges associated with running shared medical appointments.
Time

Research has consistently shown that the health and fitness industry has been quite ineffective in getting people to adopt and maintain active lifestyles. Health and exercise professionals need to develop a better understanding of the psychology of health and fitness in order to help their clients create positive, sustainable change in their lives. In addition to designing evidence-based exercise programs (“the science”), exercise professionals must acquire the knowledge and skills to help their clients craft strategies for successful lifestyle change (“the art”). This session will explore ways in which health and exercise professionals can use a client-centered approach to effectively apply evidence-based programming information to help their clients achieve their unique goals. Attendees should walk away with a better understanding and ability to provide their clients with truly personalized training programs that empower them to take ownership of their health, wellness and fitness journeys.

American diets display two major problems: too many calories, and from the wrong kinds of foods. As a result, nearly three-fourths of American adults are overweight, putting many of them at increased risk for chronic disease and poor outcome of Covid-19. Current food system policies, from agricultural production to consumption, are designed to encourage overconsumption of inexpensive and unhealthy—but highly profitable—food products. The present challenge is to change that system to one that promotes diets that are healthier for people and the planet. Hence, food politics.
