The American College of Lifestyle Medicine represents a galvanized force for change. ACLM’s first and foremost commitment is to acting in the best interest of its members and conference registrants. Because of this, the ACLM’s Board decision was unanimous to pivot from in-person to virtual. This format will provide you with the opportunity to earn as many—or more—live CME/CE credits than would have been possible through an in-person setting.    

In 2020, the ACLM came through with flying colors in producing its first-ever live, virtual CME/CE-accredited conference, attended by nearly 2,000 medical professionals and trainees from across the U.S. and internationally. This will serve us well—as we strive to make our 2021 virtual event even more engaging and inspiring. Last year’s goal—which is the same for this year—is to produce the nation’s premier virtual medical education event of the year, one that we hope will exceed your expectations.
