- Medical Students as a Key Partner in the Co-creation of Evidence-Based Lifestyle Medicine Medical School Education
Presenter: Edward M. Phillips, MD
Tuesday, June 21, 2016 at 2pm EDT
Synopsis: The second webinar in our series showcased the critical involvement of medical students in Lifestyle Medicine Education. Each year, students have pointed to a lack of lifestyle medicine knowledge due to a gap in the traditional curriculum. Particularly there is a lack of content surrounding topics such as physical activity, nutrition and behavior-change strategies, despite a call by students indicating that the inclusion of this knowledge skills are an important component of medical education. Specifically, this webinar focused on incorporating students at all levels of curriculum integration – from student interest groups to fully incorporated classroom based education. We discussed the need for four essential components necessary to implement a Lifestyle Medicine from a student perspective including: A Champion Mentor, Interested Students, Recognition from the Medical School, and Creating a Lifestyle Medicine Syllabus. We are grateful to the Ardmore Foundation, Physician’s Committee on Responsible Medicine, American Council on Exercise, American College of Lifestyle Medicine, and many others for their support and expertise.

Presenter: Dennis Muscato, MS
Tuesday, August 16, 2016 at 2pm ED
Synopsis: Our third webinar showcased how we assist medical schools in the step-by-step process of adding Lifestyle Medicine Education to the student education and experience. More than 70 schools have joined LMEd, and they are at varying levels of integration of Lifestyle Medicine across the country and the globe. We offer phone and virtual coaching sessions, a Dropbox of key resources, and network of medical professionals in lifestyle medicine that support each other collaboratively. We also have many others already in residency and in medical practice as well from a variety of medical professionals and undergraduate universities.

- The Lifestyle Medicine Education Collaborative Partners with AAMC’s MedEdPORTAL to Provide Evidence-Based Lifestyle Medicine Curricular Resources
Presenter: Jennifer L.Trilk, PhD
Tuesday, September 20, 2016 at 2pm EDT
Synposis: In our final webinar, we highlighted LMEd’s partnership with the AAMC’s publishing suite, MedEdPORTAL Publications (www.mededportal.org). MedEdPORTAL maintains a rigorous peer review process based on standards used in the scholarly publishing community. Each submission is scrutinized by editorial staff and independent reviewers using a standardized review instrument grounded in the tenets of scholarship. Published authors receive a formal citation for their accepted publication. MedEdPORTAL publications are considered by many to be scholarly works that may support faculty advancement decisions. The AAMC manages a database of trained, content expert reviewers, puts forth a call for submissions to all medical schools, tracks submissions through the publication process and supports an Associate Editor for the collection. As such, the Lifestyle Medicine Collection curated and housed at MedEdPORTAL will include material vetted by Lifestyle Medicine content-expert reviewers and an Associate Editor that will guarantee the collection to be of the utmost quality of material for educators to use in teaching. Finally, as MedEdPORTAL is an international publication of peer-reviewed curricula and resources, authors who develop evidence-based, Lifestyle Medicine material are encouraged to submit to the collection. In summary, by distributing high-quality curriculum and incentivizing faculty, this collaboration will “raise the bar” of making available, evidence-based LM medical education for medical schools to utilize. We are grateful to the Ardmore Foundation, Physician’s Committee on Responsible Medicine, American Council on Exercise, American College of Lifestyle Medicine, and many others for their support and expertise.
