Founded in 2004, the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) is the medical professional society for physicians and other professionals dedicated to clinical and worksite practice of Lifestyle Medicine as the foundation of a transformed and sustainable health care system. Practice involves the use of evidence-based therapeutic approaches, such as eating a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet, getting regular physical activity, adequate sleep, managing stress, avoiding use of risky substances and pursuing other non-drug modalities, to treat, reverse, and prevent chronic disease.
ACLM educates, equips, empowers and supports its members as they provide evidence-based Lifestyle Medicine as the first treatment option in clinical practice and worksite settings through live and online CME-accredited events and educational offerings, certification, clinical practice tools, patient education resources, economic research, networking opportunities and advocacy efforts.
Today, ACLM has nearly 3,000 members—and growing—across the world on every continent with 14 international Lifestyle Medicine organizations represented by ACLM’s Lifestyle Medicine Global Alliance. Lifestyle Medicine is one of the fastest growing career fields of medicine globally and holds the promise for true health reform as it addresses the root-cause of chronic illness. Board certification is now available through ACLM’s certification partner, The American Board of Lifestyle Medicine.
The Lifestyle Medicine Education Collaborative (LMEd) offers leadership, guidance, and resources to advance the adoption and implementation of lifestyle medicine curricula throughout medical education.
The organization is focused on expanding access to lifestyle medicine education in U.S. medical schools with a concentration on subjects specifically tailored for medical students. These subjects include exercise/physical activity, nutrition, self-care and behavior change.
