Marc Braman wants to increase health and happiness for many by helping to revolutionize healthcare. He spent the major portion of his career from 2007-2013 building the national professional association for Lifestyle Medicine — the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. He was its second President and first Executive Director. Under his leadership, the association put lifestyle medicine on the professional map with national conferences, collaborations with other professional organizations, and education and professional development for physicians and other practitioners. Initial efforts toward establishing professional standards led to collaboration with the American College of Preventive Medicine, eventually culminating in the first-ever publication in JAMA on lifestyle medicine as the product of a blue-ribbon panel of representatives from multiple specialty societies recommending competencies for all physicians in prescribing Lifestyle Medicine (Lianov, Johnson, JAMA, July 14, 2010). Dr. Braman continues to be involved in teaching these competencies as the foundation for Board Certification in Lifestyle Medicine. Dr. Braman is all about finding the levers for positive change. As such, he is President of the Lifestyle Medicine Foundation where one of the main projects is creating the practical patient-centric resources for lifestyle medicine in the next generation of health care. He saw a large need and has established a company, Lifestyle Medicine Pro, for supporting healthcare professionals and systems in implementing Lifestyle Medicine successfully operationally as well as clinically. He has been creating and developing the fundamental systems for clinical Lifestyle Medicine practice that he will be teaching how to use in the post-conference workshop. Has also continued to practice clinical lifestyle medicine in his own fitness-center based practice, that he uses as a laboratory for developing the resources for Lifestyle Medicine practice. Lifestyle medicine has been one of the large missing pieces for building healthcare as it could and should be. The other big missing piece, per Dr. Braman, is patients. Society, and how healthcare works and is delivered, is radically changing. Understanding and building a truly patient-centric healthcare system requires patients to be represented and have a voice, so Dr. Braman has established a non-profit organization to become an organization that represents and speaks for patients. Patients directing healthcare, combined with “treat the cause” systems will be a powerful combination of transformation and helping many “find the joy of living well.”
