Dr. Robert Karch has been announced as the guest speaker at the Summit for a Healthier America.

The founder and director of both the Masters of Science program in Health Promotion Management and National Center for Health Fitness at American University, Dr. Karch will offer thoughts on how the health club industry could lead the wellness revolution by adopting the lessons from employee wellness research.  

The Summit, sponsored by American Public University, American Council on Exercise, and the National Academy of Sports Medicine, takes place May 14-15 at the Top of the Hill Banquet and Conference Center in Washington, D.C. It is free to IHRSA members.

It is an opportunity to brainstorm with peers on subjects that are important to the industry, while also a chance to meet with local representatives on Capitol Hill.
