For Providers

Empower your patients

The Anticancer Lifestyle Program (ACLP) provides free resources that empower your patients to create and maintain healthy lifestyle behaviors in the areas of diet, fitness, mindset, and personal environment.

Program resources include an online course, eBooks, webinars, blogs, recipes, a robust toolkit, and more. Our expert-led program is evidence-based and provider-recommended.

Fill a treatment gap

Many healthcare professionals lack the time and resources to explore healthy living with their patients. Our program can help fill the gap by providing tools, tips, and strategies that promote patient well-being before, during, and after treatment.

Dr. Roshani Patel is a Board-Certified surgeon and Medical Director of the Breast Program at Jersey Shore Medical Center.

  • Social Workers
  • Dietitians
  • Hospital Administrators
  • Health and Wellness coaches

Start a weekly or monthly Learning Circle group to discuss and review different modules in the online course. This group can be virtual or in-person.

Registered Dietitians, social workers, physical therapists, wellness coaches, and other health professionals can supplement their teaching with our extensive program resources.

What is a Learning Circle?

The advantage of gathering in groups is that patients can support one another and share resources and ideas. The learning process is deepened by the powerful sense of community. As a result, any lifestyle changes are likely to be more “sticky.”

It’s easy to form a Learning Circle. Our Organizer’s Manual gives specific instructions about how to organize groups on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis.

Provider Success Story

The Anticancer Lifestyle Program online course has been successfully adopted by a cancer center in North Carolina. They have run several patient cohorts through the Program.

Key elements include:

  • Insurance-reimbursed Shared Medical Visits.
  • Cohorts of 10-12 patients who have completed active treatment meet online monthly with a provider.
  • Each month, a new module is assigned and discussed at the following meeting.
  • Interactive participatory activities are incorporated into each visit.
  • Health coach calls are made in between meetings to offer support and additional resources, as well as to review SMART goals.
