Evaluation Criteria

The Research Review Committee will review all abstracts based on scientific merit, through the lens of the criteria provided in the submission guidelines, taking into consideration the overall conference structure/space.  

Authors are encouraged to submit abstracts for a poster presentation in all major areas of lifestyle medicine. We define lifestyle medicine as, “the use of lifestyle therapeutic intervention for prevention, treatment and even reversal of lifestyle-related chronic disease.” Common interventions include:

  • Diet and Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Stress Management
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Other Non-Drug Modalities

If your abstract is selected, you will be sent an official notification outlining the specific guidelines for the poster presentation.
