The BSLM was set up to promote the role of lifestyle medicine in improving people’s health and wellbeing. We believe many lifestyle-related diseases can be prevented, managed and even reversed by properly applied lifestyle medicine principles.
The society was founded in 2016 by two GPs and a surgeon – Dr Rob Lawson, Laurence Stewart and Michael Boyle.
We now have more than 1,000 members drawn from a range of disciplines.
Our key aims are to …
- Raise awareness of the principles and practice of lifestyle medicine
- Promote greater adoption of lifestyle medicine in healthcare and society
- Provide opportunities for learning and knowledge sharing among healthcare professionals around lifestyle medicine
- Develop a solid evidence-base to support the use of lifestyle medicine in the treatment, management and reversal of chronic disease
