In the United States, health care costs are some of the most expensive in the world, however our health outcomes do not reflect that cost. This discrepancy shows an urgent need to focus on healthy behaviors and their impact on health outcomes. Lifestyle Medicine is one of the fastest emerging branches of medicine world-wide as an evidence-based approach to prevent, treat, and often reverse chronic disease.

Join us for this Power Hour as we continue our conversation around Lifestyle Medicine. Our guests include board certified lifestyle medicine physicians as well as scientists who will be talking about lifestyle medicine, promoting health and the importance of nutrition and phytonutrients in preventing disease.
