British Society of Lifestyle Medicine


About British Society of Lifestyle Medicine

The BSLM is an independent charity, set up to promote the role of lifestyle medicine in improving people’s health and wellbeing. We believe many chronic diseases can be prevented, managed and even reversed by properly applied lifestyle medicine principles.

The society was founded in 2016 by two GPs and a surgeon – Dr Rob Lawson, Laurence Stewart and Dr Michael Boyle.

We now have more than 1500 members drawn from a range of disciplines including primary and secondary care clinicians, allied and public health professionals, scientists, educators, researchers and patients.

We are part of the Lifestyle Medicine Global Alliance, a network of lifestyle medicine societies in countries across the world, and the European Lifestyle Medicine Council.
