Have your practice recognized as a Pritikin Center of Excellence

Your patients always want the best in health care. With the Pritikin Longevity Center, you are providing them with the best in healthy lifestyle education.

Pritikin is the first comprehensive lifestyle program in America. For 43 years, it has been on the cutting edge of lifestyle science. More than 100 peer-reviewed studies published in prestigious medical journals like the New England Journal of Medicine have demonstrated its success. Pritikin is the longest-running, most successful program for preventing and controlling leading health concerns like coronary heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and obesity.

Your designation as a Pritikin Center of Excellence makes you part of an iconic brand recognized around the world as the leader in comprehensive lifestyle programming. Your patients will now have preferred access to scientifically proven techniques and training for a longer, healthier and happier life.

You will personally save countless hours of time.

Teaching healthy lifestyle skills takes time, as you know. To do it properly, means far more than handing out a diet pamphlet. It requires hours of instruction in skills like grocery shopping, cooking, dining out, exercising safely, and staying motivated. At Pritikin, all these skills are embedded in the curriculum and are taught by experts – registered dietitians, exercise physiologists, physicians, and lifestyle-change psychologists. All have years of experience helping people turn their intentions to live better into a reality they enjoy.

You will also save time because, as your Pritikin-educated patients become healthier, many will likely require fewer appointments with you. 


During their stay, your patients will attend an eye-opening, life-changing lecture series.
