Lifestyle Medicine Summer Institute


The Centre for Health Behaviour Change at UBC Okanagan is pleased to announce the 2023 Lifestyle Medicine Summer Institute, a two-day workshop for healthcare professionals in British Columbia. This year’s institute will be held on June 5 & 6, 2023.

Diet, physical activity and low-risk alcohol behaviours are cornerstones of good health. However, most Canadians struggle to achieve optimal dietary, physical activity and alcohol consumption patterns. This practical course is designed to teach healthcare providers and health behaviour-change interventionists how to confidently prescribe diet, physical activity and alcohol.

Drawing on cutting-edge science in lifestyle medicine and health behaviour change, will bolster their confidence engaging in sensitive health behaviour topics, and learn how to use behaviour change techniques to foster meaningful change with patients.

Workshop learning objectives:

  1. Attendees will be able to apply current knowledge on health behaviour change in a manner that patients are receptive to.
  2. Attendees will be able to confidently engage in conversations with patients specific to diet, exercise, and alcohol consumption behaviours.
