Latest Newsletters

SEPTEMBER 2018
DR PETER TING

Lifestyle Medicine

This issue of the newsletter is focused on preventive and lifestyle medicine. While no one will argue the importance of preventive medicine which encompasses risk factor modification through public health measures, population screening and use of preventive pharmacotherapies -- Lifestyle medicine is still a relatively new term to most health care providers. In October 2017, the American and International Board of Lifestyle Medicine conducted their first inaugural lifestyle medicine certification exam in the United States, recognizing it as a legitimate medical specialty. So what is Lifestyle medicine? Is it grounded on good scientific evidence or just snake oil?
