Why offer Degree Program Scholarships in Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle Medicine has the potential to stop and reverse the majority of chronic, non-communicable diseases. The facts are clear.

But how can we as a society provide options in health care and train health care providers to actually make a difference. We believe that every doctor, nurse, psychologist and allied health care provider needs to be trained in Lifestyle Medicine, the root-causes of symptoms and how to address them.

Supporting health care professionals to earn degrees and become leaders in Lifestyle Medicine is not only a worthy cause but absolutely needed to shift our current "disease management" model of health care towards prevention, healthy and conscious living.


Why do we support Women Leadership in Lifestyle Medicine?

Women are holding over 76% of all health care jobs. About 1 million professionally active physicians are currently practicing in the U.S., 359,409 of whom are female. This translates to a gender ratio of 1.8 male physicians to 1 female physician.

Doctoral students don’t resemble the demographics of the country at large. Black Americans, Latinos and Native Americans together make up about 30% of the U.S. population but only 15% of U.S. doctorates.

Women are greatly underrepresented in graduate STEM programs.

A 2014 study found fewer than half of Black and Latino doctoral students in the behavioral and social sciences earned a doctoral degree within seven years. More than a third left their programs without finishing.
