Welcome to the first day of Lifestyle Medicine Week! Rochester Lifestyle Medicine Institute is proud to support the critical work of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM)!

ACLM recognizes six pillars of Lifestyle Medicine: the use of a whole food, plant-predominant dietary lifestyle; regular physical activity; restorative sleep; stress management; avoidance of risky substances; and positive social connection.

Over the course of the next week, we will acknowledge each pillar separately. We will then explore the three additional pillars that have been added by RLMI: spending time outdoors, seeking purpose, and finding joy.

See you tomorrow!

Stay well,
