A vast majority of chronic disease, directly related to poor lifestyle choices, is reversible and preventable through the proper choices in nutrition, exercise and stress management. The growing field of lifestyle medicine, an essential foundation for prevention and treatment of Cardiovascular Diseases and other chronic medical conditions, makes available the necessary evidence-based solutions for providers to counsel patients and improve patient outcomes.

The Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) of Asheville, North Carolina, in collaboration with Dr. Brian Asbill, is providing an educational symposium focused on addressing Lifestyle Medicine within Buncombe County and Western North Carolina. The purpose of this program is to connect healthcare providers, city and government officials, and community members with the knowledge and tools to practice healthy lifestyles and to engage patients in the necessary solutions for improved patient outcomes.

Lodging is available at the Hampton Inn & Suites Asheville in Biltmore Village
