3rd Annual Healthcare Transformation Summit

This year's ACLM Healthcare Transformation Summit will showcase Lifestyle Medicine in the Workplace: Lower costs. Improved outcomes. Enhanced wellbeing.  For self-insured employers there is immense profit in health, and this is what lifestyle medicine delivers!

The summit brings together healthcare stakeholders to learn about and discuss innovative approaches that integrate lifestyle medicine strategies. Eighty-five cents of every healthcare dollar spent in the U.S. pays for the treatment of conditions rooted in poor lifestyle choices. In light of the rising drug and benefit costs related to lifestyle-related chronic conditions, self-insured employers are awakening to the 'good news' of lifestyle medicine as the future of worksite health promotion.

The 2017 ACLM Healthcare Transformation Summit will take place on June 16th at the Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach, Carlsbad, California. This ticketed gathering, including continental breakfast and lunch, will feature presentations by executives representing large self-insured employers and health systems who have successfully implemented lifestyle medicine programs, sharing their approach, their challenges and the outcomes. The summit agenda is as follows:

   Tickets are $90 and include continental breakfast and a health-promoting lunch! 

"From an employer perspective, a comprehensive lifestyle medicine wellness initiative is the only avenue to sustainable behavior change that will result in improved outcomes and lower costs,"  says ACLM President-elect Dexter Shurney, MD, Cummins Inc. chief medical officer and executive director of global health and benefits.
