About American College of Lifestyle Medicine

American College of Lifestyle Medicine is a galvanizing force for change. Through development and promotion of educational events, tools, resources and campaigns designed to further the cause of Lifestyle Medicine, ACLM supports its members in their individual practices and in their collective desire to domestically and globally promote Lifestyle Medicine as the first treatment option, as opposed to a first option of treating symptoms and consequences with expensive, ever increasing quantities of pills and procedures. ACLM members are united in their desire to identify and eradicate the cause of disease.
