There is substantial evidence on the role that diet and nutrition, physical activity and exercise, and resiliency plays in preventing and treating chronic diseases and improving quality of life. Traditional CME courses use a classroom-based format to educate healthcare professionals in these areas. However, it is challenging for people to make beneficial lifestyle behavior changes, and education by itself doesn’t necessarily promote behavior change. This course is experiential as well as educational. It is based on the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program, a program designed to help people make beneficial lifestyle behavior changes. In this course, attendees learn about lifestyle medicine, and actively participate in classes designed to help create an individualized wellness plan. Learning in this personal manner helps participants counsel patients on making these same healthy behavior changes.

Registration Fees
MD, DO, PhD$3,000
Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant, Nurse, Resident, Fellow, Allied Health Professional, Retiree$2,750

Target Audience

Targeted audience includes healthcare professionals practicing in internal medicine, primary care, preventive medicine, concierge medicine, cardiovascular medicine, and endocrinology. In addition, healthcare professionals in all specialties may find the information and experience beneficial.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to: 

  1. Recognize the relationship between health behaviors, chronic disease, and the quality of life.
  2. Assess patient wellness in their own clinical practice.
  3. Employ wellness concepts in their own life.
  4. Demonstrate how to track health behaviors.

Attendance at any Mayo Clinic course does not indicate or guarantee competence or proficiency in the skills, knowledge or performance of any care or procedure(s) which may be discussed or taught in this course.
