The Clinton Foundation hosted its first national health and well-being conference, “Health Matters: Activating Wellness in Every Generation,” Monday and Tuesday at the Humana Challenge. Attendees had the opportunity to hear from some of today’s leading health and well-being advocates, who worked together to identify strategies to improve the health and lives of others, especially children.
President Bill Clinton delivered the keynote address on the importance of incorporating health into all facets of our daily lives. Other speakers included health and wellness expert Jillian Michaels, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem, Annika Sorenstam, and Humana Chairman and CEO Mike McCallister.
“We hope that the work that we’re doing with Humana and the PGA tour to carry on Bob Hope’s legacy of service and giving back will give us a tournament that has the goal of encouraging every single person to make a personal commitment to lifelong wellness and to be involved with family and community to encourage healthy living in others,” said President Clinton.
McCallister served as a panelist in a session titled, “Health, Wellness and the Bottom Line: A Dialogue among Business Leaders,” where he talked about empowering health consumers.
