Lifeclinic International, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer and distributor of automated blood pressure monitors and health testing stations, is this year's Gold Sponsor of the Harvard Business School Health Conference. The Conference will be held at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center, Harvard Medical School, November 6 - 8, 2008.
Lifeclinic President Philander Claxton says, "We're once again honored to be the Conference's lead sponsor. The Conference brings together some of the world's top leaders from every sector of the healthcare industry to promote in-depth discussion and the exchange of ideas regarding today's top healthcare issues."
Lifeclinic's Chief Medical Officer, John T. Kelly, MD, PhD, will be one of the speakers at the Conference. Dr. Kelly received his M.D. from Harvard Medical School and his Ph.D. from Harvard University. Prior to joining Lifeclinic, Dr. Kelly was Chief Health and Medical Officer of Union Pacific Railroad, which has received many awards for its health and wellness programs. He has held senior executive positions with a number of organizations, including Aetna, the American Medical Association, PhRMA, and the San Francisco Department of Public Health. He will speak about the impact of technology on wellness programs at worksites.
Lifeclinic is also sponsoring the "Walk, Track and Win to Better Heath Contest." Conference registrants receive a free Sportbrain pedometer for tracking their steps. Lifeclinic will award two prizes: one to the person with the most steps prior to the Conference and one to the person with the most steps during the Conference itself. Each winner will have a $2,000 scholarship donated to Harvard Business School in his or her name. During the Conference, participants' steps will be monitored by uploading the pedometer's data to a Lifeclinic LC500 Health Station. At the end of the Conference, participants will be allowed to keep their pedometers and encouraged to continue to use them for promoting better personal health.
