Description:

Chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes are the leading contributors to death, disability, and health care costs in the United States. Our active duty military service, potential recruits and veterans are not immune to the health problems that affect the rest of the US population, and the impact is substantial. In this webinar, we will highlight how Lifestyle Medicine is being implemented to address the root cause of chronic disease and improve the health and lives of our active duty military service members and veterans within the VA, DoD and armed forces throughout the country.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Increase awareness of the VA’s Whole Health Program and Lifestyle Medicine efforts being undertaken by the DoD and Armed Forces.
  2. Review how certain VA locations have established shared medical appointment clinics in collaboration with Whole Health and other specialties.
  3. Discuss Lifestyle Medicine education and certification opportunities at an individual and organizational level.
