The demands and challenges you face every day within your practice are constantly changing, so we’re changing with them.

We’ve taken the feedback of last year’s attendees along with that of clinicians in your region and across the country to develop this year’s Annual Conference.

The Power of Lifestyle Changes, Social Networks, & Trust
We tend to think of advances in medicine as a new drug, laser, or surgical procedure, something high-tech and expensive. This presentation will discuss the power of comprehensive lifestyle changes, reviewing more than 30 years of research using high-tech, state-of-the-art measures to prove the power of low-tech, low-cost, and often ancient interventions. Also, the lecture will describe proven strategies for motivating people to make and maintain comprehensive lifestyle changes as well as how to personalize a way of eating and living based on an individual’s needs, genes, and preferences. Finally, the presentation will describe many of the health policy implications of comprehensive lifestyle changes as both medically effective and cost effective.
Learning Objectives:
  1. Participants will be able to understand successful strategies for motivating people to make and maintain comprehensive lifestyle changes
  2. Participants will be able to describe the evidence from randomized controlled trials showing that chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease and prostate cancer may be stopped or even reversed by making comprehensive lifestyle changes.
  3. Participants will be able to describe evidence showing that comprehensive lifestyle changes may affect gene expression.
