Naples Lifestyle Medicine Physician Speaks at Harvard Medical School Conference on Healthy Aging
Kriston Kent M.D. MPH, a Naples lifestyle medicine physician, recently spoke to over 400 attendees at the Harvard Institute of Lifestyle Medicine conference entitled: “Practicing Lifestyle Medicine: Tools for Promoting Healthy Change“. This course took place in Boston on June 26-27.
Dr. Kent’s presentation highlighted his model of using a team approach to creating a lifestyle change. The “Dream Team“, as it was called at the conference, included a lifestyle medicine physician (Dr. Kent), a nutritionist, an exercise specialist, a behavior specialist, and a health coach. Dr. Kent is the owner/medical director of the Kent Center for LIFE which often uses this team approach to help patients avoid chronic diseases and treats patients with chronic diseases using lifestyle modification instead of medications and medical procedures. This approach actually treats the cause of most chronic illnesses, instead of just the symptoms.
