Member Interest Groups

ACLM welcomes members to participate in the growth and development of our organization and in the broader purpose of promoting and advancing the field of lifestyle medicine. Member Interest Groups provide opportunities to build relationships, collaborate and learn from other passionate lifestyle medicine practitioners.

ACLM’s Member Interest Groups are a valuable member benefit included with membership. These member-generated groups were established by passionate professionals who sought to connect with like-minded practitioners working in similar fields or who shared similar goals. With elected leadership roles of Chair, Co-chair and Secretary, these groups offer valuable opportunities to lead. All ACLM members are invited to participate in ACLM Member Interest Groups.
