--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Many Americans are living unhealthy lifestyles and are not aware of wellness or prevention, which will only result in worse health conditions and higher healthcare costs in the future. Healthcare Costs and serious health conditions are spiraling out of control with no end in sight. Employers have reached an impasse where they need to do something drastic in order to continue offering affordable and meaningful healthcare benefits to their employees. Health, Wellness and Prevention seem to be the only answer. People need to learn how to engage in healthy behavior and live a healthy life with a focus on wellness and prevention.

Employers and insurers want to implement corporate wellness programs for their employees or insured but don’t know where to turn. They don’t know what companies offer the best wellness solutions, which wellness programs would be the best fit for their employees and have the best return on investment (ROI) and what wellness programs simply don’t work.

The Corporate Wellness Conference brings together employers, health plans, consultants and health insurance agents for advanced educational sessions by the leaders in corporate wellness and value based benefit design to teach you how to redesign benefit plans to focus on engaging the consumer and implementing the right tools, disease management, knowledge and health and wellness programs to really change employees actions and decisions with the end result being more affordable healthcare premiums and healthier employees. Learn what is working and what isn’t and find out where the future is headed for the corporate wellness industry. Find out what practical solutions you can implement that really work and what concepts simply have failed.

The leading employers and benefit managers will be sharing what health plans and corporate wellness programs they have implemented with success and amazing results. The educational panel sessions will focus on employers and health plans that have significantly reduced healthcare costs and created change in their employees and the way the employee lives their lives and purchases and utilizes healthcare benefits.

The 2nd Annual National Corporate Wellness Conference will feature up to 800 attendees, over 50 expert speakers and over 50 exhibitors and sponsors.

This high level corporate wellness conference will bring together the best healthcare leaders in the country for 2 days of intense advanced educational sessions and networking dedicated to corporate wellness, value based benefit design and reducing healthcare costs through health and wellness promotion.

This is the one conference per year you can’t afford to miss!
