Dr. Marc Barman MDMarc Braman, MD, MPH, has spent the better part of the last 8 years building the national professional association the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. He was it’s second President and first Executive Director. Under his leadership the association put lifestyle medicine on the professional map with national conferences, collaborations with other professional organizations, and education and professional development for physicians and other practitioners. Initial efforts toward establishing professional standards led to collaboration with the American College of Preventive Medicine, eventually culminating in the first ever publication in JAMA on lifestyle medicine as the product of a blue ribbon panel of representatives from multiple specialty societies recommending competencies for all physicians in prescribing Lifestyle Medicine (Lianov, Johnson, JAMA, July 14, 2010). Dr. Braman now innovates professionally as President of the Lifestyle Medicine Foundation, where he is creating the practical resources and systems for lifestyle medicine in the next generation of health care. He continues to practice lifestyle medicine and has directed departments for hospitals, clinics, and his own private practice, working with patients to find “the joy of living well”.
