BSLM 2021 Annual Conference
The British Society of Lifestyle Medicine's fifth annual conference takes place between September 2nd-4th
Five Years of BSLM
Our Society has come a long way since our first conference in Bristol in 2017 when less than a hundred people attended our inaugural event.
Since then our membership has grown to more than 1,400 clinicians, allied healthcare professionals and medical students.
Following on from our successful online conference in 2020, which drew over 700 delegates, we’re hoping to attract well over 1,000 delegates in person and online to this year’s conference in Edinburgh.
So what’s on offer?
Over a packed three-day programme we will be bringing you expert speakers covering all the key elements of the lifestyle medicine approach including:
- Covid-19 and lifestyle medicine – how we can address the “third wave” of chronic conditions neglected during the pandemic
- Diet and nutrition
- Physical activity
- Stress, mental health, social connectedness and wellbeing
- Group consultations and virtual group consultations – and their potential to meet pent up healthcare needs in the UK
- Population health improvement, public health and behaviour change
- The social determinants of health and health inequalities
- Health, the environment and “planetary health”
All interspersed with some fun activities to keep us moving
Conference Dinner and Entertainment
BSLM is hosting dinner and entertainment on the Friday (September 3rd), at the National Museum of Scotland. Tickets will cost £60.
Call for Abstracts
We are looking for examples of original, important or relevant work in the areas of science, research, clinical application (including service improvement or audit projects) or public health.
Successful applicants will be offered the opportunity to present a poster – both at the ICC and online.
We will be publishing details shortly of how to submit a poster presentation abstract for consideration by the BSLM Science & Research Committee.
