ACLM Offers Free Course

The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM), in support of the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health, committed $22 million to provide 5.5 hours of free accredited CME/CE coursework to 100,000 physicians and other clinicians as a foundational, evidence-based introduction to the growing field of lifestyle medicine.

Called “Lifestyle Medicine & Food as Medicine Essentials,” the three-module, four-presentation online course bundle includes an introduction to lifestyle medicine and baseline nutrition education on prevention and treatment of chronic disease. This opportunity is a major step forward in filling the gaping void of lifestyle medicine, including food as medicine, in medical education. The course, otherwise valued at $220, is accredited for 5.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CMEs, along with a variety of other CE/CME accreditation.
