    The “Jumpstarting Health” course fills in all the blanks as to how societal dietary patterns came to be and how they have contributed to the “sick care” we often see today, while simultaneously preparing medical professionals with the information needed to help their patients restore their health. I firmly believe knowledge is power and you will feel empowered after taking this course – plant-based empowered!

    Course completers will gain a firm understanding of the research that’s been done to date regarding plant-based nutrition’s impact on health, how to help patients (and oneself) dive into a plant-based journey, as well as the coaching techniques needed to support behavior change.

    I highly recommend this course and hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did!

    This was the most life affirming medical education course I have taken. As already stated by Dr Scheuer, the course is incredibly educational and eminently practical. By participating in the Jumpstart program, the provider sees the results of this program in their own life. Once they see its power in their own life, it is much easier to promote such life changing behavior to their own patient. This course will help many providers, many patients and perhaps our health care system itself. I highly, highly recommend this course.

    I highly recommend this course for physicians interested in practical ways to incorporate lifestyle medicine.
    This CME course is informative,comprehensive, evidence-based, entertaining, and easy to complete. The included access to the JUMPSTART PROGRAM allows us a window into how our patients are engaged via ZOOM to improve their health in a fun, easy to understand, incredibly supportive environment for 2 weeks. Rarely do physicians get a window into exactly the message given to our patients when they’re referred for care.

    Thanks to Dr. Barnett and his team for sharing your time and expertise with those who want to embark on a different way of life, discussing their pitfalls during this major dietary change while helping patients manage expectations, sharing great starter tools/recipes with access to a Facebook page for questions and daily email support. This is a masterful way to engage and introduce patients to the pillars of Lifestyle Medicine and more importantly, better health. I thoroughly enjoyed this window into a program that allowed me to change my own food habits while inching toward some of my own personal goals. I appreciated the experience with group classes as well.

    It will be great to now lead my own patients by example.The mix of didactics with lifetime access to the lectures post completion, entertaining but informative video lectures, lifetime separate access to lifestyle medicine/ nutrition reference materials, and the Jumpstart make this CME unlike any other I’ve experienced.

    Highly recommend this CME course to all clinicians!

    Dr. Barnett and his team do such a wonderful job weaving the current evidence-based nutritional research into a fun and interactive CME program. The course is designed as a wonderful and thorough initiation to the whole food plant based lifestyle, but is also a wonderful review course for those who are seasoned WFBP “veterans”.

    Additionally, the participation in the 15-Day Jumpstart itself is an invaluable part of the learning experience. To be able to participate alongside others in real time as they are making huge life changes is awe -inspiring.

    Between the online CME course and the Jumpstart, I feel fully equipped to recommend a whole food plant based diet with my patients going forward.

    Thanks to Dr. Barnett & team for this invaluable experience!

    After just finishing the “Jumpstarting Health: Comprehensive Course” put on by the Rochester Lifestyle Medicine Institute, I feel compelled to spread the news of how exceptional this CME course is.
    The program is comprehensive, well researched, pleasantly presented, incredibly educational, and enjoyable. It perfectly fulfills one of the Lifestyle Medicine core competencies of leadership in “promoting healthy behaviors as fundamental to medical care, disease prevention, and health promotion.” In presenting such a valuable course (well worth the time and money even without the benefit of the CME credits), the RLMI is working towards and succeeding in its goal of improving the world. There is no question that in taking this course, which includes the excellent 15-day Jumpstart experience, providers will make personal changes, and like me, send their patients to the Jumpstart program, which will change their lives and health for the better. Indeed I will be highly recommending this program to other practitioners in my attempt to improve their own and their patients’ health and wellbeing.
    This course should be a mandatory course for any medical provider and is an invaluable source for review and preparation for the Lifestyle Medicine Boards. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
    Now, it is time for me to eat some fruits and vegetables and go outside and run around!
