US Surgeon General to Present at IHRSA30  

U.S. Surgeon General, Vice Admiral Regina M. Benjamin, MD, MBA, will address attendees of IHRSA’s 30th Anniversary International Convention & Trade Show in San Francisco.

On Saturday morning, March 19, Dr. Benjamin will present her “Vision for a Healthy & Fit Nation,” which emphasizes the importance of fighting the obesity epidemic by communicating and celebrating the full benefits of healthy living. “Americans will be more likely to change their behavior if they have a meaningful reward--something more than just reaching a certain weight or dress size,” suggests Dr. Benjamin. “The real reward is invigorating, energizing, joyous health. It is a level of health that allows people to embrace each day and live their lives to the fullest without disease or disability.” 

Dr. Benjamin’s presence at IHRSA30 will underscore the vital link between the medical and fitness communities. “On behalf of IHRSA and the entire fitness industry, I am extremely pleased to welcome such an admired and distinguished leader to our convention,” said Joe Moore, IHRSA’s President and CEO. “IHRSA members understand that health clubs must play a critical role in promoting healthy living, and we are eager to support Dr. Benjamin’s efforts to combat obesity and fulfill the promise of the Healthy People 2020 goals for improving the health of all Americans."
