Deepak Chopra, the well-known alternative medicine practitioner, is launching the 2015 Corporate Wellness Symposium, a day-long seminar for HR executives and wellness practitioners in Carlsbad on May 27 at the LaCosta Resort and Spa. In its fourth year, the event is hosted by San Diego-based Intercare Insurance Solutions and HUB International.
Chopra will address the group on "The Future of Wellbeing," a roadmap for health based on the latest findings in both mainstream and alternative medicine. He is founder of The Chopra Foundation, and co-founder and board chairman of The Chopra Center for Wellbeing.
“The symposium, now in its fourth year, is designed for HR executives, chief financial officers and finance VPs, benefit managers and wellness committee members,” said Maggie Osburn, Intercare’s general manager. “Whether your company is launching its first wellness initiative, or your program has been in place for a decade, this day is full of cutting-edge solutions matched with practical application — so everyone will leave with a few ideas they can put into place right away.”
The full-day, multisession symposium features wellness experts and local employers whose wellness programs and initiatives have met with significant success. Registration and breakfast begin at 7 a.m., with Chopra’s keynote address at 8 a.m. The day concludes with a 4:45-5:30 "Healthy Hour."
The day-long schedule features diverse topics such as financial wellness, brain fuel (nutrition and lifestyle strategies) and how to measure well-being in the workplace. In addition, experts will discuss the mechanics of wellness initiatives and programs — from legal updates and communication solutions to outcomes-based wellness programs — and wellness solutions inside a private exchange.
The group will also hear from several companies whose wellness programs are continuing to meet with resounding success, including L.L. Bean; local employers GreatCall and CUSO Financial Services on Building a Culture of Wellness – Taking a Culture-First Mentality in Workplace Wellness; plus a local employers’ panel on "The Engagement Equation."
