Lifestyle Medicine Summer Institute


The Centre for Health Behaviour Change at UBC Okanagan is pleased to announce the 2024 Lifestyle Medicine Summer Institute, a two-day workshop for healthcare professionals in British Columbia co-hosted with the Southern Medical Program.

This approved CME credited learning program meets the certification criteria of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and has been certified by UBC CPD for up to 9 Mainpro+® credits. This year’s institute will be held on June 13 & 14, 2024 on campus at the University of British Columbia Okanagan at the Reichwald Health Sciences Centre.

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 approved CME credited course is designed to teach healthcare providers and health behaviour-change interventionists how to confidently and successfully prescribe diet, physical activity and alcohol.

Drawing on cutting-edge science in lifestyle medicine and health behaviour change, our award-winning speakers will engage participants to speak confidently about 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.
