Register here for our webinar on Tuesday, May 21, at 12pm ET (11 CT, 10 MT, 9 PT)
Live from the MIT AgeLab, Healthways and the MIT AgeLab invite you to join some of the most forward-thinking health plans in the industry for part two of our three-part webinar series on engaging health plan members for keeps. This webinar will focus on the power health plans have to control costs by getting an aging population engaged in an active life and keeping them functioning independently as long as possible.
- Joseph F. Coughlin, PhD, founder of MIT AgeLab, will introduce the importance of exercise on the well-being and quality of life for an aging population, how it may lower overall costs and what compels them to participate.
- Barbara Ainsworth, immediate past-president of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), will discuss research showing the impact sports and fitness has on an aging population’s motor skills, health and well-being.
- Mary Ferron, vice president of fitness programs at Healthways, will share how the use of Healthways WholeMind Engagement philosophy gets aging populations engaged in an active lifestyle.
- Elizabeth Rula, executive director and principal investigator of Healthways Center for Health Research, will discuss her recent study showing that the SilverSneakers program keeps Medicare Advantage members healthier, more active and independent.
