Pro-Change Behavior Systems, Inc announced today that Dr. Sara Johnson will present two sessions and participate in a lively debate at the 27th Annual Art & Science of Health Promotion Conference, March 27-31, 2017 in Colorado Springs, CO.

Johnson, Pro-Change’s co-President & CEO, will present “The Recipe for Finding the Optimal Blend of Awareness, Motivation, Skills, & Opportunities: Applying Lessons from Baking” on Wednesday, March 29 at 1:45 pm. The presentation will focus on creating a recipe for blending key ingredients of well-being initiatives (e.g., policy, leadership development, individualized well-being programs, and culture of health initiatives) to optimize individual and organizational well-being.

Later that day, Dr. Johnson will participate in an Oxford style debate moderated by Paul Terry, President & CEO of HERO. The session, entitled “Awareness, Motivation, Skills and Opportunity… What is the Right Mix?” will involve Johnson and Stewart Sill of IBM/Watson facing-off against Margaret Moore of Wellcoaches and Dr. Matthew Clark of Mayo. Each team will argue for or against the proposition that there is evidence to support a “right mix” for health promotion.

Johnson will also co-present with Laura Putnam, one of the industry’s leading experts on enhancing managers’ influence on workplace well-being. Putnam is the CEO of Motion Infusion and author of Workplace Wellness That Works. Johnson and Putnam are co-developers of the “Manager on the Move” initiative, which includes the first tool for measuring managerial impact on well-being at work. They will be joined by esteemed colleague Crockett Dale, CEO of Healthstat. Healthstat has been an innovator by being among the first organizations to systematically implement Manager on the Move with their managerial team. The presentation will take place on Friday, March 31 at 11:00 a.m.

Pro-Change will attend, and highly recommends, Laura Putnam’s two day-pre-conference Intensive Training Seminar (March 27 and 28, 9 am – 5 pm). This highly interactive session, entitled Workplace Wellness that Works: A Smarter Framework for Designing More Effective Workplace Wellness Programs, will provide a fresh perspective on how to promote employee well-being. Putnam’s work is based on cutting-edge research and backed by real-world examples and case studies.
