RIPHAH Institute of Lifestyle Medicine – RILSM

On 4th October 2019 a MoU was signed between RIPHAH University and Lifestyle Medicine Training Centre in Islamabad. Dr. Shagufta Feroz is the Director of RIPHAH Institute of Lifestyle Medicine- RILSM. Lifestyle Medicine is the only preventive and therapeutic care movement adopted by WHO and active in about 48 countries. This critical healthcare movement is motivated by research indicating that modifiable behaviors — especially physical inactivity and unhealthy eating — are major drivers of death, disease, and healthcare costs. While the medical profession is generally aware of this, there has yet to be a systematic and comprehensive effort to incorporate lifestyle medicine into standard patients, conduct research to demonstrate efficacy of lifestyle interventions, and to create a model for national adoption of Lifestyle Medicine.
