SEVEN PILLARS OF LIFESTYLE MEDICINE

We selected our lifestyle medicine pillars according to evidence-based research. All of our pillars have an impact on long-term physical and mental health and can be broken down into a series of smaller behavioral changes. These pillars are interrelated. Positive behavioral changes in one pillar can motivate behavioral change in another pillar.

We aim to highlight the most rigorous research in each pillar. We break down the research into meaningful recommendations for patients and healthcare providers. 


Our Lifestyle Medicine Program was launched in 2019 under the co-direction of Michael Fredericson, MD FACSM and Douglas Noordsy, MD. Our Initiative focuses on: developing accessible Lifestyle Medicine content, raising awareness, establishing a team of experts, providing education platforms for healthcare providers, and performing quantitative and qualitative research to improve our impact.

IN COLLABORATION


Lifestyle behaviors encompass many elements of a fully-lived life. Healthy behaviors and lifestyle interventions can help individuals and families improve longevity and decrease chronic disease. We collaborate with the Stanford Center on Longevity to redesign an approach to a century-long life that is available to all, independent of background.

Lifestyle Medicine is a growing field.


We believe that Lifestyle Medicine will continue to grow as a field. We believe collaboration between institutions, societies, and researchers will enable more patients to access and understand evidence-based recommendations. Please let us know if you are interested in working with us.
