International Call for Presenters - 2018 Health & Wellness SymposiumPage Menu
Applications accepted until June 30, 2017
2018 Health and Wellness Symposium
Acupuncture/Chinese Medicine or Massage Therapy Track
Thank you for your interest in submitting a presentation proposal for our 2018 Health and Wellness Symposium.
We are looking for a diverse group of engaging speakers for our annual event held on campus in Bloomington, MN. We attract between 350-425 practitioners from all over the United States. The event includes meals, exhibitors and a celebration on Saturday night. We offer two learning tracks (acupuncture/Chinese medicine or massage therapy) and include a few sessions that cater to both audiences.
Here are some tips for creating a dynamic proposal that will impress our planning team and attract attendees to the program.
Above all, know your audience. Our attendees are licensed acupuncturists, Chinese medicine practitioners or massage therapists out working in the field.
Include takeaways. Our attendees want to learn useful skills and concepts they can bring back to their practice right away. Please do not use your presentation as a “teaser” to a longer program or course you teach.
Use a clear, explanatory title. Many attendees decide to attend the event based on the title of presentations alone. 10 to 15 words maximum – the shorter, the better. Avoid being cutesy.
In your course description, be clear, concise and accurate about what you will cover in your presentation. Provide the level of detail that you would like to see in a course description if you were going to attend the event. Avoid sweeping generalities about the state of healthcare or any other broadly known concepts.
Make sure to mention the target audience – who specifically would benefit from attending your course in terms of level of expertise or type of practice.
