Thank You, Summit Attendees
Thank you for attending the 2007 National Prevention and Health Promotion Summit from November 27-29, 2007. More than 1,100 attendees from all levels of the public and private sectors arrived in Washington, D.C.
With presentations from First Lady Laura Bush, futurist Dr. Leland Kaiser and many others, the summit’s presenters demonstrated a high level of commitment to fostering a culture of wellness that will help reduce the disease burden and economic impact of some of the nation’s leading causes of death and disability. The summit closed with a special presentation produced by Fred Friendly Seminars that featured a riveting debate about the real-world experiences of two girls affected by obesity and diabetes.
We hope you had an enjoyable time at the summit. We recognize that there is always room for improvement, and we welcome your feedback and evaluations on how we can make next year’s conference even better. Please e-mail suggestions to Summit Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
