This year's theme is Navigating Wellness:
Mapping a Positive Path

The wellness landscape is constantly shifting in countries throughout the world. As policies and environments are altered, and innovative ideas to facilitate behavior change are introduced, wellness professionals and the individuals they serve discover not only new obstacles, but also new inspiration.

Held on June 18 - 20, 2018, the 43rd Annual National Wellness Conference Wellness offers wellness promoters from across the globe the opportunity to navigate this terrain together. Through ground-breaking educational sessions, rejuvenating personal enhancement programs, and memorable social events, our sights remain set on guiding the communities we serve on a positive and affirming path toward whole-person wellness.
