Reduced subscription rate for ELMO members!

In view of its mission to offer exclusive benefits to its members, the Board of ELMO signed an important cooperation with SAGE Publishing, becoming a sponsor of the “American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine”. Through this collaboration ELMO members will have access to on-line subscription to the Journal at reduced rates. For 2020 the yearly subscription rate will be $35 instead of $91 which is the standard rate for non-ELMO members. The American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine is a peer-reviewed bi-monthly resource for practitioners seeking to incorporate lifestyle practices into clinical medicine.
If you are a member of ELMO with duly paid fees, you will receive in early January an email with instructions on how to subscribe to the Journal with the reduced rate. We will also send you guidelines on how to sign up for automatic eTOC and OnlineFirst alerts to receive email notifications when a new issue or new content publishes.

The first recipients of the European certificate in lifestyle medicine are here!

Congratulations to the first 10 ELMO Certificate recipients who successfully completed the program, after undergoing 14 hours of online sessions, followed by 4 hours of personal online meetings and successfully passing the final exam in Rome, during the ELMO 2019 Congress.
In a vivid and emotional ceremony the graduating students shared their personal experiences and received the ELMO Certificate validating that they now master the lifestyle medicine principles and are able to apply them in their own practices.

ELMO, in cooperation with BELMO, will continue to offer this evidence based online Certification program in 2020. Further details will be announced soon in the ELMO website.
