Today we are proud to announce a new addition to the BlogHer Conferences schedule: HealthMinder Day.
HealthMinder Day will join Pathfinder Day* as a pre-conference add-on opportunity for BlogHer '12 attendees.
What is HealthMinder Day? HealthMinder Day is designed to be a day of inspiration, education, and connection. Specifically, it is a full, multi-track adjunct day happening Thursday, August 2nd, before BlogHer '12. The day will focus on expert information and looking at the latest tools, services, sources, and products for taking care of yourself and your loved ones. And for sharing with your online communities.
You will sign up for HealthMinder as a separate add-on, but can do so at the same time as you purchase your BlogHer '12 ticket here.*
Why HealthMinder Day?
We know the BlogHer community is avidly interested in health and wellness. You are 39% more likely to give advice about health than the average woman online. 57% of you read health and wellness blogs for information, and you like to try new health-related products. That comes to life when we gather your feedback about our events.
We have seen an increasing interest in all of the above subjects over the last few years. We've heard the requests for fitness activities and healthy food at BlogHer. We've seen a movement grow for the parents of children with special needs. We've experienced the struggle to put ourselves first just enough to be able to deliver at home, at work, and in our community.
With all of that pent-up interest staring us in the face, we decided the time was right to dedicate a day to focus on these issues, learn from one another, and hear from experts in the field.
What will HealthMinder Day be like?
The content will fall into three tracks, and we have lined up some experts and user advocates to help us build the best possible program:
Fitness & Nutrition, with the help of:
FitBloggers Roni Noone and Renee Ross
Nutrition experts Janet Helm, registered dietician and Chief Food & Nutrition Strategist for Weber Shandwick and Terry Walters, author of Clean Food and Clean Start
Self-Care & Social Health, with the help of:
BlogHer's section editor for both Health and Sex, AV Flox
Social Health experts Shwen Gwee, Med 2.0 Founder and VP of Digital Health for Edelman and Sara Holoubek, CEO & Founder of Luminary Labs
How do I sign up for HealthMinderDay? You can buy your HealthMinder pass at the BlogHer '12 registration site.*
We hope you're as intrigued and excited by this new addition as we are. Will we see you there?
* If you already signed up for Pathfinder Day and would like to switch to HealthMinder Day, please email Amelia, and she can take care of that for you.
