American Medical Association Healthier Life Steps

The AMA Healthier Life Steps® program offers physicians and their patients practical resources and tools for establishing and supporting healthy lifestyle goals. It focuses on four behaviors — healthy eating, increasing physical activity, quitting smoking, and reducing high-risk alcohol consumption — that can help prevent many chronic diseases.

Physicians play a vital role in changing their patients’ lifestyles by talking with them at every visit about how these negative behaviors impact their health.

AMA Healthier Life Steps® offers physicians and their patients these resources:

  • Patient questionnaires,
  • Action plans,
  • Progress tracking calendars, and
  • Continuing medical education opportunities.

AMA Healthier Life Steps® program materials are free for physicians and patients, courtesy of TMA and AMA. Physicians can download the material for use in your practice. For more information, email tmaoutreachcoordinator@texmed.org or call (800) 888-1300, ext. 1470, or (512) 370-1470.
