Justin Charles, MD


I am currently a PGY-1 in the Yale Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency Program. 

My clinical interests are in Lifestyle Medicine, the use of evidence-based lifestyle interventions, such as Plant-Based Nutrition, physical activity, stress management, positive psychology, sleep hygiene, and substance cessation to not only prevent, but treat and reverse chronic disease from a root cause perspective. I have received training in Plant-Based Nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and eCornell, as well as Dr. John McDougall's Starch Solution Certification Course. I currently serve as a Vice President of Education for the American College of Lifestyle Medicine Trainees Executive Board and a Vice-Chair of the Yale Resident Housestaff Wellness Council. 

I aim to use my training to offer Lifestyle Medicine to patients, create educational content on Lifestyle Medicine and Clinical Nutrition for Undergraduate/Graduate Medical Education as well as for patients in clinic and the greater New Haven community
