Conference Makes Case for Wellness at Work
"More than 140 health care professionals attended the third annual HASC Health Care Provider Wellness Conference to explore wellness and benefits programs that work to alleviate the costs of health care and combat the effects of poor health on productivity, job satisfaction and care quality. A unique aspect of the conference is the incorporation of physical activities that engage attendees and demonstrate the value of exercise. Mission Valley YMCA led the Zumba Fitness activity that opened the event and the run/walk around the city on the final morning of the conference." — from Hospital Association of Southern California, June 2013
