Submission Details

Presentations for Lifestyle Medicine 2017 “Transforming Health. Redefining Healthcare” are now being accepted. This is your chance to broadcast your knowledge and experience about all of the interesting ways that you are applying lifestyle medicine in your practice, research community or environment!

We want to continue working to transform health care by helping providers integrate LM in their practices. This year is all about implementation – evidence based LM practice models, innovative LM models, reimbursement models for LM, etc. Share your journey from inception to finish. Please be sure to provide practical, “how-to” knowledge and skills for the audience, so that they can integrate learned principles into their own lifestyle medicine practice or environment.

As you develop your topic and education style, we would like you to consider different presentation formats. Would your topic do well as a TED talk with a 15 to 20 minute pearls session, rapid fire and then open for discussion or a fish bowl technique? (www.kstoolkit.org/Fish+Bowl) Would you do well presenting case studies with small group breakouts?

Potential Topics

Here are a few examples of potential topics:

  • Implementation and Design of LM Programs into Practice
  • Physical Activity and Exercise as Medicine
  • Coaching and Interviewing Techniques
  • Mental Health (Mind-Body connection)
  • Financial sustainability of the LM practice
  • Affecting Change on Agriculture / Food Policy (Politically Active Individual)
  • Health care reimbursement from a policy perspective and how to affect change on the system
  • Healthy Eating, Whole Foods, and Dietary Influences
  • Behavior Change and Maintenance; Health Psychology
  • Stress and Stress Management
  • Sleep Health
  • Other

If you have another relevant topic in mind, please do not hesitate to submit.

For now, please assume that most sessions will be 45-65 minutes including time for Q&A.
