The National Wellness Institute is accepting breakout session proposals for its 40th Annual National Wellness Conference (NWC), which will take place June 15-18, 2015, on the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (West Bank) campus in Minneapolis, Minnesota. All proposals are peer-reviewed and must be submitted through the online submission form at http://www.nationalwellness.org/NWCProposals by October 1, 2014.
The Conference 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.
NWI seeks diversity in programming with sessions focusing on all Six Dimensions of Wellness: Emotional, Occupational, Physical, Social (includes Environmental), Intellectual, and Spiritual. Session content should focus on current research, theory, and/or best and promising practices. Additionally, NWI has a strong commitment to diversity and supports its inclusion in all of its educational programming and presentations and encourages the submission of proposals that address best practices in diversity training and multicultural competencies for wellness professionals in working with all populations. Conference tracks include Coaching; Community Wellness; Higher Education; Integrative Health/Mind-Body-Spirit; Legal, Business, and Marketing; Personal Renewal; Physical Wellness; Public Health/Clinical; Wellness for Special Populations; and Worksite Wellness.
