Health and Wellness Conference 2012


Welcome to the website of the 2012 International Conference on Health, Wellness and Society. The 2012 conference will be held at the University Center, Chicago, USA from 10-11 March 2012.

The 2012 Health, Wellness and Society Conference will address a range of critically important issues and themes relating to Health, Wellness and Society. Plenary speakers include some of the leading thinkers in these areas, as well as numerous paper, colloquium and workshop presentations.

Participants are invited to submit a proposal for an in-person paper presentation, workshop/interactive session, or a jointly presented colloquium. We also encourage innovative presentation formats, such as roundtables, staged dialogues, screenings and performances. Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream forms a talking circle, an informal forum for focused discussion of issues and conference themes.

Participants may choose to submit written papers before or after the conference for possible publication in the peer reviewed The International Journal of Health, Wellness and Society. Virtual participants also have the option to submit papers for consideration by the journal. All registered conference participants receive a complimentary online subscription to the journal when registration is finalized. This subscription is valid until one year after the conference end-date.
