About the Healthways Well-Being Summit

Healthways is proud to host its third annual Well-Being Summit exclusively for leaders that share an interest in transforming the health and well-being of their people. This year we're making it available to you as a live interactive webcast.

The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index has measured and defined our nation’s well-being. One million surveys later, we have uncovered findings that have the power to transform our nation. As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to takeaway key findings and one of a kind data that you can use to improve your organization’s well-being.


  • Using unparalleled insights from the Well-Being Index experts will identify emerging trends in health and well-being and explore the deeply rooted impact social, emotional, and physical health has on our nation.

  • Discover how to drive positive change to enhance workforce well-being to transform the health, productivity, and engagement of your organization.
