Society of Lifestyle Medicine of Nigeria (SOLONg)
This is the medical professional association in Nigeria for healthcare professionals who are committed to the development and practice of Lifestyle Medicine in Nigeria. The founding members of the society established the Africa Lifestyle Medicine Association (ALMA) to encourage the spread of Lifestyle Medicine across other countries in Africa.
