    3rd International Lifestyle Medicine Conference in Lithuania

    LIFESTYLE MEDICINE: more than treating the symptoms of chronic diseases
    March 17, 2017, Kaunas, Lithuania

    It is a pleasure to invite you to the 3rd International Lifestyle Medicine Conference – in Kaunas, Lithuania

    It is a pleasure to invite you to the 3rd International Lifestyle Medicine Conference – in Europe. The conference is hosted by the Faculty of Public Health (FPH) at the University of Health Sciences (LUHS), and is arranged in collaboration with the European Society of Lifestyle Medicine Professionals.

    This exclusive event unites lifestyle medicine professionals, researchers and officials all over the world to discuss and provide an evidence-based approach targeting the prevention, treatment and reversal of the lifestyle-related chronic diseases. The evidence-based knowledge is the core factor for lifestyle medicine development. Therefore, it is important to disseminate the knowledge and exchange accumulated scientific evidence and research in regard to lifestyle medicine.

    One of the objectives will be to support Lifestyle Medicine education and to extend the refinement of the current academic Lifestyle Medicine curriculum. Under interactive opening and discussion on “Lifestyle Medicine in Lithuanian Healthcare System“, the conference will focus on the challenges of the integration of lifestyle medicine professionals in the healthcare system in Lithuania and Europe.

    We find it evident that the future model of healthcare has to go beyond the mere relief of symptoms caused by lifestyle related diseases and has to be centered on the evidence based lifestyle medicine approach.
