San Francisco

Healthcare CEO Peer Group

2nd Wednesday of the month  |  8:30 – 11:30 am  |  San Francisco, CA

UPCOMING MEETING

Wednesday, February 12, 2020

Opening Discussion Topic:

Shaping Healthier, Happier Lives

It should come as no surprise that the benefits of physical activity include:

  • better health
  • lower healthcare costs
  • increased quality of life
  • longer survival, and
  • less loneliness,

particularly when “prime-agers’ are engaged in health club activities that focus on building their:

  • balance
  • flexibility
  • mobility, and
  • Fitness for Life!

The problem is that only 16% of “prime-agers” (65-75) engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate activity at least five days a week. During our Group Discussion we’ll look to hear your best practices for defeating the snooze alarm and motivating your employees, patients, parents – even yourself – to get in that half-hour of exercise! We’ll also look to hear your two top business goals for 2020.

Then, our Featured Guest Speaker, Francesca Schuler, CEO of In-Shape Health Clubs, will present their programs that redefine “health care” and help keep their “prime” members “as fit at 70 as at 40.” Contracted with five Medicare Advantage plans and providers that offer SilverSneakers programs in their clubs, In-Shape has developed a range of low-impact exercise programs to keep their “primers” fit and socially engaged in their 65 premier clubs located throughout the State (including Concord and Vallejo).

RSVP today. And alert us to any other Hot Issues we should be sure to discuss.
