Have a more satisfying practice AND finally learn how to PREVENT and REVERSE many chronic diseases with Lifestyle Medicine

Did you go into medicine to thrive, and to help your patient’s thrive? And you are not quite making either happen and you can’t figure out why? Do you see chronic disease burdening you, your family, your staff and your patients? Or are you fully burned out and sick of talking to a wall and doing other people’s work and want something new to do?
 
I’m an emergency medicine doc, and a lifestyle medicine physician certified through the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, a specialty in evidence behind prevention and reversal of disease using food, weight management, sleep, exercise, mindfulness and stress management. I run coaching programs and do Telehealth consultations. Are you wondering if this is for you too? Not sure you want to certify? Just want to incorporate some REAL lifestyle change into your current practice, whatever it is?  
 
Well, I’ve curated an 8 week online course for you, whether you want to learn to implement into your current practice, or to augment your certification with the ACLM to switch career paths.
