Creating A Wellness Movement:
Think Differently. Plan Accordingly. Create Life-long Change
Speaker: Angela Gaffney
Most wellness programs are based on the results of a biometric test; the numbers tell the story and we set the plan. Wellness luncheons are scheduled, exercise challenges are posted, and weight loss competitions begin. The lunches close, the challenges wrap, and the winners are announced. And then something happens; people go right back to their old habits; the same habits that fed their excess weight, fatigue and disease in the first place.
In this presentation, Angela talks about the secret behind creating a wellness movement; one that honors you, your team, your budget and ends with a return on investment.
