Education in the forefront

ELMO Certificate

In a world where everyone thinks to know everything about the healthy lifestyle, ELMO together with the Belgian Lifestyle Medicine Organisation (BELMO) offer an evidence based online program with the support of the European lifestyle medicine representatives. The ELMO certificate is addressed this year to sport/fitness/healthy lifestyle instructors who would like to develop and monitor a healthy lifestyle trajectory for their patients and sport practitioners. The exam, which will take place in Rome, on November 8th , 2019 during the ELMO Congress, will certify that graduated students master the lifestyle medicine principles and apply them in their practice.
ELMO is pleased with the response rate in the application process and we look forward to proudly announcing the first certified professionals in Rome next November!
