The DeKalb Health Foundation will host a new event on Friday, February 9, 2018 at the Kruse Expo Center from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bloom will be a day to cultivate health while supporting the DeKalb Health Foundation.
Because of the generous support of The James Foundation, we are excited to announce that bloom keynote speaker will be award winning ABC News Anchor and #1 New York Times Best-Selling Author, Dan Harris. In an interactive presentation, Harris will explore the power—and practicality—of meditation, which he believes will be “the next public health revolution.” Harris will share his thoughts on the philosophy that mental fitness will, in the not too distant future, be as socially acceptable and sought after as physical fitness.
“DeKalb Health values supporting our communities’ health and we know bloom will be a great opportunity to engage in this effort,” shared Sarah Payne, Executive Director of the DeKalb Health Foundation. “A healthy community is important to businesses and individuals and we want to be a leader in this initiative.”
Harris draws from his own experience—he discovered meditation after failing to find happiness through workaholism and substance abuse. In his bloom presentation, Harris will explore how and why some of today’s most successful organizations (like the Super Bowl-winning Seattle Seahawks, Google and even the U.S. Army) have incorporated meditation as a way to both improve corporate culture and boost employee performance and well-being. Harris’ presentation is just one of the special activities planned for bloom. The day will begin with a light breakfast and inspirational welcome at 9:30 a.m., followed by customizable breakout sessions that allow attendees to explore the health-related topics most central to their needs.
The day events will also include a vendor health and wellness fair.
Events like bloom allow the DeKalb Health Foundation to continue to support the technology, infrastructure and programming needs
of DeKalb Health.
