Program Information

Clinician and Patient Wellness Program Series

How much does our lifestyle contribute to illness and disability? And what is precisely a healthy lifestyle? We all know that eating properly, exercising daily, and other important aspects of our daily life play a very important role in our health and well-being. But the specifics are more difficult to understand. We are confused about which diet or exercise is best for us, the proper level of stress or sex, and we are at a loss sometimes on how to motivate ourselves and patients to making changes in lifestyle. This confusion and lack of a clear vision, has encouraged MCE Conferences to inform healthcare professionals, who will then help inform their patients about the importance of a proper lifestyle in the prevention and management of diseases. This CME Conference will assist healthcare professionals in improving their knowledge of nutritional choices and lifestyle modification. Become a healthy and happy healthcare professional, and be a role model to your patients. Teach them by example how to make healthy choices about their lifestyle. Successful completion of this interactive program should increase confidence in diagnostic skills, prescribing the most accurate and effective course of treatment and follow-up care, for improved patient outcomes.
