Fight Chronic Medical Conditions Through Lifestyle Change
With 6 in 10 adults in the United States suffering from a chronic disease and 4 in 10 afflicted by 2 or more chronic diseases according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, qualified professionals are needed more than ever to address the current healthcare crisis. As a health and exercise professional, one of the most effective ways you can help clients better manage and even prevent chronic medical conditions is through lifestyle change. In this course created in partnership with Healthy Learning, you will gain a better understanding of the key elements involved in lifestyle medicine. Based on the research series “ACE Health and Wellness Reports,” this innovative course not only addresses the six core pillars that are the foundation of lifestyle medicine, but also explains how people can increase the number of healthy years they have to live.
This course includes digital access to a 96-page online document (viewable only) and an online quiz.
Upon completion, you will be able to:
- Define the core pillars of lifestyle medicine
- Identify the key elements of each pillar
- Explain to your clients how positive habits can positively affect their health
