Second Annual Conference Lifestyle as Medicine

Second Annual Conference Lifestyle as Medicine

On Wednesday the21st of NovemberLUMC and TNO will organize the Second Annual Conference ‘Lifestyle as Medicine’in CORPUS Congress Center, Oegstgeest.

TNO and the LUMC, together with partners, have started the Netherlands Innovation Center for Lifestyle Medicine NILG. Our present healthcare system is not equipped for the challenges of today and the future, therefore we want to drive a system change towards lifestyle interventions playing their part in the cure and care of noncommunicable diseases. After TNO-LUMC’s successful first annual conference on lifestyle medicine last year with the focus on Type 2 Diabetes we will again, this year, take a deep-dive in the latest developments in lifestyle medicine. In 2018 our main focus will be on cardiovascular disease. An excellent line-up of (inter)national invited speakers will share with the audience their innovative viewpoints and call to action for lifestyle medicine professionals, policymakers, businesses and researchers.

Target groups Medical professionals (Internists, Cardiologists, General Practitioners, specialists in geriatric medicine, social therapists, dieticians, physiotherapists and people who are in training for these professions); representatives of healthcare insurance companies; system biologists, health and behaviour scientists; healthcare innovators; healthcare and lifestyle related businesses, municipalities and national authorities.
