ACLM is the medical professional society providing quality education and certification to those dedicated to clinical and worksite practice of Lifestyle Medicine as the foundation of a transformed and sustainable health care system.

More than a professional association, ACLM is a galvanizing force for change.

ACLM is comprised of members who are passionate about the urgent need to transform health and healthcare. Our organization addresses the need for quality education and certification of the clinical practice in lifestyle medicine.

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.
