Our Story

The Art & Science of Health Promotion Conference was established in 1990 by Dr. Michael O’Donnell, founder of the  American Journal of Health Promotion. His vision for the event was to bring together health promotion and wellness professionals from across disciplines and settings to learn and share best practices - including wellness program managers, HR professionals, physical therapists, nutritionists and dieticians, health educators, nurses, entrepreneurs, CEOs and others – representing workplace, hospitals and clinics, schools and universities, government, insurance and other sectors. 

More than 30 years later it remains true to that goal, attracting participants from across the country and around the globe who share a passion for well-being.

In 2020 the conference joined the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans, a member organization dedicated to providing the diverse employee benefits community with objective, solution-oriented education, research and information. As our members have asked for more strategic health and wellness education, this conference presents a unique opportunity to bring together plan sponsors and practitioners, narrowing the gap between research and practice, supporting successful workplace wellness programs.
