Capitol Wellness Expo 2013
Thanks to the sponsorship of DC’s Representative, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, now in her twelfth term as the Congresswoman for the District of Columbia, many organizations are collaborating to help Congress and the public learn about wellness practices and the issues they present. Learn about practices that enhance mental and physical performance, reduce stress, and help you to look and feel your best.
Questions the Capitol Wellness Expo will answer; What practices boost energy? Enhance critical thought? Reduce stress? Help children? What will the practice of medicine be like in the future? Will the health freedom movement play a role?
In the plenary room (121), we will start with personal wellness (beauty and athletic performance tips, nutrition, mindfulness, and more) and then integrating wellness practices. In the afternoon, we will examine wellness policy issues and discuss the future of health care and wellness. In room (122), we will have exhibits, demos, networking, discussion groups, and classes. The program is designed for members of Congress and staff.
The 2013 Capitol Wellness Expo has been created by and for allied organizations and individuals to advance awareness of natural and integrative wellness initiatives as an essential part of America’s healthcare solutions and to address related issues as they pertain to policy making, such as: The positive long-term effect of improved wellness on the economy; What individuals, employers and government can do to promote wellness and reduce health care expenditures? Holistic strategies for addressing obesity in the US; Effective integrative health therapies – why Medicare can and should cover them.
