Based on “Welcome to Fabulous Health” theme, the non-profit National Association for Health and Fitness announces its 2012 Forum on March 25, 26 and 27, 2012 at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. This Forum is being conducted in partnership with the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health and Fitness Summit and Exposition on March 27-30, 2012. “This is a tremendous value-packed opportunity for health and fitness professionals to attend outstanding back-to-back professional meetings at the same location,” stated Diane H. Hart, President of NAHF and co-chair of the Forum.
“ACSM is honored to have NAHF as a strategic partner. ACSM and NAHF have a powerful common cause in improving the public’s health by working with organizations around the United States at the national, state and community levels. If the answer is NAHF, the question is: What is an essential part of the solution to promoting health and preventing disease in the U.S.? ACSM looks forward to vital collaborations with NAHF on Employee Health and Fitness Month, Exercise is Medicine and more,” stated Jim Whitehead, Executive Vice President/CEO of the American College of Sports Medicine.

Those attending the two-day meeting will also enjoy the NAHF Gold Star Awards Reception honoring states, individual and organizations for their contributions to the improvement and promotion of physical activity and wellness. The prestigious Glenn V. Swengros Award will also be presented at the luncheon to Tom McMillen.
