BSLM 2020 Virtual Conference

The British Society of Lifestyle Medicine's fourth annual conference takes place online between September 3-5 - and this year we're going virtual.

Our first ever online conference will be a truly global event and is an opportunity for those interested in lifestyle medicine to get the latest scientific evidence and thinking from a broad range of medical disciplines and schools of thought.

The virtual conference brings together an impressive line-up of experts in topics including exercise and physical activity, mental heath, diet and nutrition, sleep and much more.

We do hope you can join us between September 3-5 so you can provide real time feedback — and share your knowledge and experiences with each other. However, if you can’t make these dates all content will be made available after the event so you can access this at a time of your choosing.

The three-day conference’s main theme is ‘the art and science of healthy longevity’, with this year’s focus on three sub themes: environment and wellbeing, physical activity and health and eating.

If you’re not already a BSLM member why not join?
