Last October, the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) and the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU) forged a partnership to help equip hundreds of thousands of medical professionals with education and training to further their practice and better treat chronic diseases among historically medically underserved patients. Our new “The Power of Partnership” webinar series is the first collaborative effort hosted by both ACLM and ACU to create shared learning around health equity through the lens of the clinical application of lifestyle medicine, which, according to studies, is proven to address clinician burnout.

In addition, the webinar will cover two unique scholarship opportunities that were designed to diversify the medical workforce and train and certify health center physicians in lifestyle medicine.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Discuss the clinical application of lifestyle medicine and its role in advancing health equity.
  • Discuss contributors to clinician burnout and identify mechanisms to achieving clinician resilience.
  • Address dearth of underrepresented in medicine (UIM) clinicians.
  • Review scholarship opportunities that help diversify the workforce and equip clinicians serving historically medically underserved patients disproportionately impacted by lifestyle related chronic disease.

Speakers:

  • Amanda Pears Kelly, Executive Director, ACU
  • Tyler Hemmingson, Senior Director of Practice Advancement, ACLM
  • Dr. Qadira Ali, Co-chair, ACLM HEAL Initiative
  • Suzanne K. Speer, Vice President of Workforce Development, ACU
  • Stacia Johnston, Director of Health Equity Advancement, ACLM
