Lifestyle Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine –Qatar
The Institute for Population Health (IPH) at Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) has been at the forefront of raising awareness among health practitioners in the Middle East about the value of treating and preventing chronic diseases with lifestyle medicine. Recently, the Institute developed a 50-hour Certificate in Clinical Nutrition course, which was sold out on both the occasions it was offered. An upcoming development is the delivery of an innovative Certificate in Lifestyle/ Integrative Medicine course. Additionally, WCM-Q plans to hold discussions with local health and academic institutions about establishing a Consortium of Health Institutions in Lifestyle Medicine in the Middle East.
