About

The next AICE Wellbeing and Lifestyle Management webinar, titled Precision Lifestyle Medicine – Treating the Individual not the Diseasewill be held Wednesday 17 March 2021and will be presented by Dr Cameron McDonald.

Lifestyle medicine is a must when attempting to improve long term outcomes in clients. Understanding the holistic nature of their health allows faster improvement.  However, many lifestyle strategies come with a non-response rate, in fact, 30-50% of the individuals in nutrition, exercise, psychological interventions are considered non-responders. In order to ensure that each individual is able to get the best result, we need to understand what makes them different, and what is the resulting change in strategy for their uniqueness. Health tech and science are now at a stage where precise personalisation is available.

This one hour webinar will cover how these differences in individuals develop, the elements of the environment that influence health, and how precision lifestyle medicine is being used in practice right now.

Registration closes 4:00pm AEDT 17 March 2021.
