The Australian Society of Lifestyle Medicine has published a nice article about the global impact of Lifestyle Medicine in the World.
While the Americal College of Lifestyle Medicine was formed in 2004 the second oldest LM Organization worldwide is the Australian Society of Lifestyle Medicine formed in 2008. The article illustrates and describes the huge growth and effort taken to make Lifestyle medicine popular. It is talking about that most of the organizations which are promoting the Lifestyle medicine approach are usually non-for-profit and/or volunteer-run organizations legally. The Asian Society of Lifestyle Medicine ASLMASIA i.e. is legally a company registered in Hong Kong but powered by many people who work as a volunteer to promote LM all over ASIA.
It also talks about how the Australian Society of Lifestyle Medicine contributes to the global effort and it shows nice images from people visiting the ACLM Conference 2018 in the USA.
It describes also the huge effort to make the first congress of ELMO happen in Geneva. ELMO is the European Lifestyle Medicine Organization. More and more countries in Europe are starting up to promote Lifestyle Medicine. In the Middle East, the efforts in Israel are a good example of what now starts blooming also in other countries of this region. LMGA Executive Director had been invited to address the General Meeting of the WHO World Health Organization. It is great to see so much effort all around the world.
Let’s continue increasing the popularity of Lifestyle Medicine in Asia. Right now the First ever Lifestyle Medicine Conference in India takes place in Bangalore and the initiatives in Thailand, especially Phuket can show first results too. Andy Ng (Executive Director of the Asian Society of Lifestyle Medicine) was like many others from ASLMASIA present at the ACLM Conference 2018 in Indianapolis, USA.
