33rd National Wellness Conference - Stevens Point Wisconsin


The National Wellness Institute is hosting its annual Wellness Conference although the theme this year may be a bit arcane for most of us. A Visionary Turning: Well Earth, Well People is the title and I think the translation is that for us to be healthy our environment has to be healthy and vice versa. I'm all about wellness and a healthy environment but I'm getting a little cranky with the lack of outreach to communities who would benefit most from the message.

Ethnic minorities and the poor are the folks who have limited access to tools for wellness. I guess that's why I am such a fan of Canyon Ranch Institute. CRI does active outreach to underserved communities to improve disparities in access to care and prevention, improve health literacy and promote healthy lifestyles. It's time for the rest of the wellness community to stop preaching to the converted and get out into communities to reach people who need them.
