The Lifestyle Medicine Research Summit will define research priorities in the core areas of lifestyle medicine: nutrition, physical activity, mindfulness/stress/resilience, social relationships, addictions, and sleep.
Participation in this Summit is by invitation. Attendees will review existing knowledge and gaps relating lifestyle behaviors to common chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, many cancers, inflammatory- and immune-related disorders, and other conditions. By convening subject matter experts from an array of disciplines, this 2-day process will outline major research questions related to lifestyle medicine. See Overview below.
