The most common medical condition in America today is multi-morbidity, with lifestyle driven diseases accounting for over 86% of healthcare spending. According to the latest research, most graduate physical therapy programs do not teach lifestyle interventions. PTs are standing in one of the greatest gaps in modern history. The World Health Organization has mandated all providers address lifestyle principles, but most PT’s do not commonly implement the practice, despite most of our patients suffering from at least one chronic disease, this workshop will provide participants with essential screening methods to measure the vital signs of Lifestyle Medicine.
