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.

Lifestyle Medicine focuses on four areas:

  • Physical activity
  • Nutrition
  • Substance use
  • Stress management

Our lifestyle medicine team works with you to identify areas that you would like to improve.
