Lifestyle Medicine Credentialing

LIFESTYLE MEDICINE DIPLOMATE CREDENTIALING:  Since December 2017, P-POD has been one of the five U.S. conference providers approved for satisfying the ABLM/ACLM credentialing prerequisite formerly known as "In-person CME", and now renamed as "Event CME".  It is a live, as opposed to on-demand, educational requirement, but as of 2024, virtual as well as in-person attendance does qualify.  Please click the 2024 Changes button above for details about satisfying this Diplomate examination prerequisite in 2024.

SEE INFORMATION ABOUT P-POD'S "P-FLEX" 2024 SYSTEM HERE.  It allows any THREE of the SIX P-POD Conference days offered between June and October to be combined into your own individual 22.5 hour registration.

THIS DIPLOMATE MAINTENANCE INFORMATION IS UNCHANGED.  For persons who are already Lifestyle Medicine Diplomates:  If you are using the Maintenance of Certification plan that requires 30 Continuing Medical Education credits in the 5 years after your credentialing, then all CME credits that get approved for ANY P-POD Conferences (in-person OR virtual) will count toward your 30 hour requirement.  ALL P-POD Conferences ALSO allow a 10% discount for existing Lifestyle Medicine Diplomates on their Physician or Other Professional registrations (using code DIPLM).

All other lifestyle medicine certifying requirements are described HERE.

P-POD's Unique Curriculum, Covered at All Full Conferences

Our longtime theme "The Future of Healthcare Begins with Nutrition" and our strong focus on Lifestyle Medicine have led to the following innovative P-POD curriculum, updated again for 2023 onward.  We seek to meet the extremely high standard of representing EACH one of the following important subject areas in one way or another at EACH future full P-POD Conference:

  • Promoting healthful behaviors at the community-program and primary-care levels

  • Cancer prevention and survivorship

  • Cardiovascular health and disease

  • Diabetes prevention or reversal

  • Exercise physiology, and movement in daily lifestyle

  • Health equity, vulnerable populations, and access disparities for care and nutritious-food

  • Kidney health and chronic kidney disease

  • Mental and brain health

  • Microbiota/gut health and dysbiosis;  gut-brain axis;  immune homeostasis and autoimmunity

  • Pediatrics

  • Plant-based nutrition as a practical resource in chronic disease prevention/reversal

  • Restorative (sleep, social connection) and degrading (chronic stress, risky substances) lifestyle factors

  • Women's health

Note that Lifestyle Medicine's Six "Pillars" are embedded throughout the above:  healthful eating of whole plant-based food;  beneficial physical activity;  strategies to manage stress;  forming and maintaining relationships;  improving sleep;  avoiding risky substances.

We have also covered, through seven speakers in recent years, planetary health and degradation, the role of animal agriculture in global warming and environmental damage, and these harms' disparate effects upon marginalized and vulnerable populations.
