Preparing for ANC 2013: Wellness Village

May 15, 2013 – If you think the Annual National Conference (ANC) is all “go, go, go!” with no time to relax, you’d be mistaken. With all that’s on the schedule for ANC in Kansas City, Mo., you won’t have a minute to be bored – but that doesn’t mean you need to feel stressed or overwhelmed!

If you need to take a break from the excitement of the Exhibit Hall or rest your mind after an education session, pick up information on how to live a healthier life at the Wellness Village. This is the place to slow down and think about your mental and physical health. The Massage Corporation will be on hand to soothe your sore muscles, while the Tanita Corporation (Just added to the roster of companies!) will showcase a bevy of tools to analyze body composition.

Once you’re armed with that information, check in with the American Heart Association. Their representatives can not only speak about the importance of blood pressure, cholesterol and weight issues in your personal life, but also about what’s available for school programs. When you’re finished there, move on to the American Red Cross to learn more about CPR and First Aid classes and certifications. Finish up your visit to the village by speaking with representatives from Forrest T. Jones & Company, this year’s Wellness Village sponsor. If you’re in the market for a new insurance plan – whether it’s health, disability, auto or homeowner – the representatives can help you find a plan that suits your needs.

The Wellness Village opens on Monday, July 15, as part of the Exhibit Hall at ANC. For more information about the conference or to register, visit
