Lifestyle Medicine / 'CHIP' Program


The Black Hills Lifestyle Medicine Center is pleased to announce our partnering with one of the most respected and current lifestyle outpatient educational programs globally. We now use the CHIP, (Complete Health Improvement Program), materials for the core curriculum in this unique residential lifestyle treatment program.  This partnership not only improves the lifestyle program but provides an upgrade to be more research-driven and evidence-based.


Our graduates are now not only BHLMC alumni but also CHIP alumni. This gives them access to CHIP resources when they return home, including their local CHIP chapters and online materials.


Program participants receive a CHIP Kit with additional health materials.. The attractively presented, well-vetted resources assure they are up-to-date and well balanced. Any guests who are already CHIP alumni and bring their CHIP Kit with them will receive a $100 reduction in their program fee.
