National Wellness Conference Call for Proposals
Share |

The window to submit breakout session proposals for NWC 2017 is closed. The deadline was October 3, 2016. 

Breakout session proposal applicants will be notified via e-mail of proposal acceptance status beginning December 16, 2016.


The National Wellness Institute (NWI) invites professionals from all walks of wellness to submit breakout session proposals for its 42nd Annual National Wellness Conference (NWC). Wellness professionals are encouraged to share their best and promising practices, evidence-based methods, and leading-edge innovations for cultivating cultures that flourish in our communities, workplaces, homes, and the world. Proposals highlighting the 2017 Conference theme, “Cultivating Cultures that Flourish: Foundations and Innovations in Wellness Promotion,” are especially encouraged, as are highly interactive and experiential sessions.


Breakout session proposals must have been submitted online by October 3, 2016. Sessions are selected through a blind peer-review process.


The NWC is a one-of-a-kind event where wellness professionals from a myriad of settings (e.g., worksites, community and public health organizations, healthcare facilities, educational programs, faith communities) can participate in research-based and best-practices learning opportunities and intensive skill-building programs, develop networking communities, engage in wellness activities for personal growth and renewal, and experience a wellness immersion unlike any other.
