We would be remiss if we didn’t take the time to recap IHRSA 2022 that recently concluded in June. This is a short episode that provides a brief overview of the important takeaways, from our host’s perspective, of this high energy industry event. Among the topics discussed are:
- IHRSA’s work on mental health and inclusivity
- Advocacy & lobbying efforts
- Push towards healthcare integration
- The importance of speaking with a unified voice
- How you can get involved
Most definitely a short episode here, but an important conversation nonetheless. Understanding where the health/fitness industry is at right now, where it’s going in the future, and what you can do to ensure that future is bright and impactful is critically important for all responsible professionals in our field.
Editorial note: near the end of the podcast, Mike misspoke and said 1 in 4 healthcare dollars goes towards chronic conditions. One in 4 healthcare dollars goes towards Diabetes (a chronic condition), in point of fact, > 80% of healthcare dollars are spent on chronic conditions
