After successful 1st and 2nd annual conferences on lifestyle medicine focused on disease remission, this 3rd conference takes an empowerment approach to lifestyle support. This implies that all contributions demonstrate a person-centered, collaborative approach to lifestyle medicine, that helps people with a chronic disease to determine and develop their capacity to be responsible for their own life and health.
An excellent line-up of (inter)national invited faculty will showcase innovative viewpoints, approaches and call to action for Person empowered lifestyle medicine, in which each patient feels enabled and adequately supported to take the lead in his/her own health. Speakers will be (former)patients and their spouses, health professionals, researchers and entrepreneurs.

Based on the vast belief that our present healthcare system is systematically underutilizing lifestyle based treatment for specific chronic diseases, TNO and the LUMC, together with many partners, have started the Netherlands Innovation Center for Lifestyle Medicine (Lifestyle4Health).
Lifestyle4Health wants to drive a system change towards the application of lifestyle medicine as part of standard treatment of noncommunicable diseases. The mission of Lifestyle4Health is to apply lifestyle medicine to massively decrease the burden of common chronic conditions, like Type 2 Diabetes, Pulmonary and Cardiovascular diseases.
