A global epidemic of non-communicable diseases(NCDs) is raging across the world. Coronary artery disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer and hypertension are now the leading causes of morbidity and mortality. This epidemic has devastating consequences for individuals, families and communities and the healthcare expenditure attributed to these diseases is no longer sustainable.
Mounting studies indicate that poor lifestyle choices are key factors in the pathogenesis of chronic diseases. Evidence suggests that 80% of these chronic diseases can be prevented by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, our professional training does not equip us to help our patients initiate health promoting behaviours.Hence there has been a great demand for evidence based lifestyle medicine practices.

It is an evidence based lifestyle therapeutic intervention that aims to prevent,treat and reverse lifestyle diseases by addressing the underlying causes and by replacing unhealthy behavior patterns with positive behavior.
The two day conference brings to you evidence based state of the art strategies to prevent,treat and reverse non-communicable diseases which aims to educate and empower healthcare professionals.Our esteemed speakers from around the world will provide insight into how you can help stem the NCD tsunami!
