The American Board of Lifestyle Medicine has now approved every P-POD Conference since 2018 for satisfying its 10-hour "In-person CME" prerequisite for candidates for its annual Lifestyle Medicine certifying examination (credentialing for Diplomate of the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine or Diplomate of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, as applicable to physicians, nurses, dietitians and other practitioners/professionals).  That exam for 2022 is scheduled for dates beginning Nov. 26, and ABLM's rigid deadline to register for it is Sept. 30.  ABLM specifically recognizes for its credentialing purposes the 13 (for May or June) or 15 (for October) AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits™ approved for the three IN-PERSON (not virtual-option) P-POD conferences in 2022.

P-POD is producing three of the seven U.S. conferences qualified for the ABLM/ACLM examination's In-person CME prerequisite, as described above.  For the first two COVID-19 years 2020 and 2021, ABLM made an emergency exception, and allowed virtual conferences to meet its In-person CME requirement, but for 2022 it has very clearly and specifically returned to the normal policies of honoring fully-qualified in-person conferences only.

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 the CME credits approved for ALL P-POD Conferences (in-person OR virtual) will count toward your 30 hour requirement.  You may view detailed info about the three P-POD Lifestyle Medicine conferences HERE (also reachable always at lifestylemed.p-pod.org).
