The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM), the nonprofit medical professional society for lifestyle medicine, is offering a free 5.5-hour online continuing education opportunity for any registered dietitian who accepts MetroPlusHealth Gold. This would consist of three courses – Introduction to Lifestyle Medicine, Food as Medicine: Prevention and Longevity, and Food as Medicine: Treatment and Risk Reduction. All are available online and can be completed via un-paced self-study and are offered at no cost.
