WCM-Q Lifestyle Medicine Interest Group Meeting

Monday 17 September 2018, 12.30PM – 01.30PM Weill Cornell Medicine, Education City, Al Luqta St, Ar-Rayyan, Qatar

Globally, there is an ongoing epidemic of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), examples of which include hypertension, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and diabetes to name a few. The good news is that a vast majority of these diseases can be prevented, treated, and often reversed with lifestyle measures such as healthy food, good nutrition practices, physical activity, stress management, and smoking cessation. These measures comprise the core of lifestyle medicine practice, an emerging discipline in healthcare.

In the spirit of promoting lifestyle medicine, we welcome you to join the Lifestyle Medicine Interest Group - Middle East (LMIG-ME).

The event is open to:

  • Registered/licensed healthcare professionals with an interest in lifestyle medicine.
  • Students of health education programs at recognized universities/colleges.
  • Interdisciplinary professionals and leaders with an interest in lifestyle medicine from the diverse fields of medicine, public health, population health, nursing, dentistry, allied health science, environmental science, government, business, media, and the community.
