What is Behavioral Medicine?

In contrast to the illnesses that were highly prevalent at the turn of the last century, most of the health problems of today are caused by the way we live our lives and the choices we make.  Behavioral Medicine focuses on the interaction between behavior and health. Our program teaches people ways of making changes to health-relevant behaviors, and improving ways of thinking that can positively impact both physical and mental health.
