It’s time!

To borrow a well-known campaign slogan in Australian politics, ‘it’s time’. It’s time to change the dominant medical paradigm which is widely regarded as unsustainable and seems focused on disease management, rather than prevention and modification.



The Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine (ASLM), with our partnering organisations, are proud to invite you to attend the second international scientific conference on Lifestyle Medicine in clinical practice and health policy to be held in Australasia.

The conference will feature a ‘how to’ clinical focus designed for doctors and allied health practitioners practising as a multidisciplinary team, blended with a deep exploration of determinants and systemic issues for health policy professionals. Topped off with a scientific stream with a focus on translational research.

An impressive line-up of leaders in science, health policy and clinical application of Lifestyle Medicine will be invited from Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Europe and the Americas to provide an in-depth exploration of the conference themes and their inter-relationship, along with key public health, political and industry figures.

Our Master of Ceremonies, Dr Caroline West, known to many Australians for her appearances on Guide to the Good Life, Beyond Tomorrow, Good Medicine, Beyond 2000, 60 minutes and George Negus Tonight, will guide you through the feast of options and will keep you moving, singing and dancing.

Lifestyle Medicine promotes prevention, early intervention, self‑management, modification, and dare we say it, even regression of many chronic conditions. Let us re-inspire your practice at this extraordinary event.

We looking forward to meeting you in Sydney in September 2017.

Dr Hamish Meldrum
President, ASLM
