The event is expected to draw more than 200 decision makers in health care, business, education, public policy and individual wellness and sports. The conference kicks off the The Humana Challenge PGA TOUR golf tournament, known as the Bob Hope Classic from 1965 until this year. The tournament is in partnership with the Clinton Foundation, and the weeklong tournament (it lasts until January 22) focuses on the theme of lifelong wellness, challenging players, spectators and the general public to improve their health by making positive changes in diet, exercise and lifestyle. Attendees will learn about fitness through biometric measurements, participate in interactive games, use a pedometer in the Humana Walkit Challenge, and enjoy an array of healthy food options at concession stands. The Louisville, Kentucky-based Humana Inc. is a leading health care insurance company.
As a featured speaker, Begay joins President Bill Clinton; Chelsea Clinton; Dr. Deepak Chopra; the actress Goldie Hawn, representing the Hawn Foundation; tennis legend and founder of the Women’s Sport Foundation Billie Jean King; moderator Karolee Sowle, chief executive officer of the Desert Regional Medical Center; founder Susan Dell of the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation; mom Lakeysha Sowunmi; golf legend Annika Sorenstam, founder of the Annika Foundation among many others.
