Healthy Living: Healthy Business

Published on

There is plenty of confusion, and fear, about preventative health and business.

On 6.27.13 Gerry Farris, MD and Doug Gray were asked to provide a closed session to members of the Lake Norman Chamber called "Competitive Edge Series." The video and handouts are available at http://www.lakenormanchamber.org/events/competitive-edge-series.html

Here is the description to that event:

In response to increasing medical costs (some projections are +18%/ year with no end in sight), all business owners need to assess the costs of prevention vs. the costs of cure. There are some initiatives in wellness, prevention, diagnosis, workplace productivity and incentives that are redefining the work world. Come join these experts for a discussion about your business and your future.

Gerry is a 3x all-American Ironman athlete, ER physician, and new owner of www.reflections-spa.com

Doug is a 3x Primal Quest endurance athlete, executive coach since 1997 who can diagnose your business needs and guarantee results.

For details contact Doug at 704.995.6647 or http://www.action-learning.com
