Currently, 50 percent of Americans live with one or more chronic illnesses in which diet, exercise and stress play a key role.

Lifestyle Medicine is the science and application of 49 healthy lifestyles as interventions for the prevention and treatment of lifestyle-related diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, obesity, some neurological conditions and some cancers.

I feel ripped off. I have been auditing the course and enjoying it, but as an audit student was only able to access up to half of Module 3 - need to pay to access any more. This is not the impression given about auditing. I do recommend the course for anyone interested in lifestyle medicine - just disappointed that the provider was not more upfront about the limitations for audit.
