At the GHLF, we understand that living with a chronic condition involves more than just doctor visits and medication. Our “Global Healthy Lifestyle Events” are specially crafted to promote healthier living and offer attendees a treasure trove of resources and practical tips for effectively managing everyday decisions that influence our well-being.
Each of our events features an elite team of GHLF-affiliated health professionals, including physical therapists, mindfulness educators, registered dietitian nutritionists, and pharmacists. They will provide you with small, yet powerful, steps that you can seamlessly incorporate into your daily disease management routines.
Our distinguished speakers will touch upon critical aspects of daily life, from eating nutritiously and staying active to effective stress management, ensuring timely vaccinations, and the importance of knowing your health numbers and adhering to prescribed medications. The goal is to inspire and empower you to make decisions that positively influence your health and overall well-being.
Our GHLF Lifestyle Events are live and free to attend. If you can’t join in real-time (or wishing to revisit sessions), we’ll be archiving recordings and promoting them to our patient community, ensuring no one misses out on this valuable knowledge.
