Impact of the 2013 Health Matters Conference
In January the Clinton Foundation hosted its second annual health and wellness conference, Health Matters: Activating Wellness In Every Generation, where conference participants announced pledges to action totaling more than $100 million. These pledges will work to increase access for education, disease prevention, community building, and access to healthier lifestyles. More than 25 million people all across the United States will benefit directly from these pledges.
This year, the convening of Health Matters was truly a “conference without walls.” While we had 380 attendees at the conference in La Quinta, California, more than 17 thousand people tuned-in to the livestream of the event. A combined 7.8 million people used Facebook and Twitter to extend the conversation about health and wellness across the United States – from the Coachella Valley to New England and everywhere in between.
The more people we are able to reach, the more positive change we can make. We hope that you will help us continue the Clinton Health Matters Initiative’s mission to improve health and wellness across the country by joining the conversations on Facebook and Twitter, and help further our discussion, whether it’s by sharing our Clinton Health Matters Initiatives updates with friends and family, or taking action in your own community to help others live better by making a pledge to action.
