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.
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.
