Aligned Organisations are those groups that share a common goal with BSLM, namely in the promotion of healthier lifestyles through one of the six pillars of Lifestyle medicine: physical activity, nutrition and diet, sleep, stress reduction and mental health, harmful substance reduction or cessation and healthy relationships. The purpose of Aligned Organisation status is to share aspirations through position statements with organisations operating in niche areas and to encourage debate and discourse in the wider LM community. BSLM is a broad “church” and as such will align with organisations who may seem to be at odds with each other. As long as those groups we align with are entrenched in evidence based science, we are happy to be part of the debate. Where aligned groups have a commercial element, BSLM will not endorse products or specific activities and programmes, unless these have been approved separately through BSLM’s accreditation process. For more information about aligned organisation status, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Becoming a BSLM aligned organisation
Aligned organisations share BSLM’s goal of promoting better health using the six pillars of lifestyle medicine: physical activity, nutrition and diet, sleep, stress reduction and mental health, harmful substance reduction/cessation and healthy relationships.
We welcome applications from organisations wishing to align with BSLM who share our aspiration to reframe healthcare and tackle chronic disease. Aligned organisations are listed on our website and we will endeavour to work together to improve health and wellbeing by preparing joint position statements, sharing each other’s news and content and encouraging constructive debate and discourse in the wider LM community. We will tell the world about you and hope you will tell the world about us!
BSLM aligned organisations represent a range of interests and approaches – and won’t necessarily agree on everything. We do, however, expect all aligned organisations to share our commitment to a scientific, evidence-based approach to health improvement.
Where aligned groups have a commercial element, BSLM will not endorse products or specific activities and programmes, unless these have been approved separately through BSLM’s accreditation process.
If you are interested in becoming a BSLM aligned organisation please contact the BSLM office via email@example.com.
