  • Lifestyle Medicine Center

  • Lifestyle medicine is the evidence-based practice of assisting individuals and families to adopt and sustain behaviors that can improve health and quality of life.

    At the Women’s Medicine Collaborative we believe that caring for a patient is more than writing a prescription or ordering a test. We care for the whole person.

    We focus on four areas:

    • Physical activity
    • Nutrition
    • Substance use
    • Stress management

    We offer a comprehensive lifestyle medicine evaluation. After assessing past medical history, family history and lifestyle habits, our lifestyle medicine team works with the patient to identify areas that the patient would like to improve.

    Working together, we set health-enhancing goals, such as increasing physical activity, improving diet or reducing stress.

    The lifestyle medicine team designs an action plan, which includes identifying resources to support your goals.

    Resources available at the Lifestyle Medicine Center include:

    The lifestyle medicine team provides the support and encouragement patients need to attain and maintain their personal health goals. In doing so, current health concerns can be minimized and risk for future health problems reduced.
