The National Wellness Institute (NWI) invites students and professionals from all walks of wellness to showcase their innovative best-practices and/or research by submitting a poster proposal for the 43rd Annual National Wellness Conference (NWC). Posters highlighting the 2018 Conference theme, “Navigating Wellness: Mapping a Positive Path,” are especially encouraged. The poster content presented must be the original work of the author(s).
NWI seeks posters focusing on all Six Dimensions of Wellness: Emotional, Occupational, Physical, Social (includes Environmental), Intellectual, and Spiritual. Additionally, NWI has a strong commitment to diversity and supports its inclusion in all of its educational programming and presentations. We encourage the submission of proposals that address research or best practices in diversity training and multicultural competencies for wellness professionals working with all populations.
