The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) announced the appointment of C. Victor Brick, CEO of Planet Fitness Growth Partners and chairman of the John W. Brick Mental Health Foundation, to its 12-person advisory board. As an advisory board member, Brick will help the GWS further extend its reach and impact within the fitness industry.
“The mission of GWS is to bring individuals and businesses together to shape a better future—it challenges us to ask: ‘What can we achieve better together?’ This question has never been more urgent,” said Brick. “Wellness, including exercise, nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices, must be integrated into the healthcare delivery system and recognized as essential businesses. I believe that the best way to make this happen is through funding, conducting and evangelizing evidence-based research that the medical industry will embrace and support. Now is our time—the window of opportunity has opened.”
Brick kicked off the first in a series of GWS Wellness Master Classes inspired by the pandemic: “Managing Cashflow During the Coronavirus Crisis,” offering real-world solutions, principles of cash management during a financial crisis, tips for applying for loans, grants and government assistance and more.
The 14th annual Summit will take place at The Breakers Palm Beach, Florida, from November 8–11, 2020.
