Call to action to eradicate chronic, preventable disease unites health and wellness industries; Wellness Moonshot gained immediate support of health and wellness leaders, including Dr. Richard H. Carmona, 17th Surgeon General of the United States
Lifestyle related diseases and the continuously skyrocketing cost of healthcare are creating a global crisis that is affecting us both physically and mentally. The stark reality is that roughly 70% of all deaths each year are a result of preventable diseases (CDC), while the global cost of largely preventable chronic disease could reach $47 trillion by 2030, according to the World Economic Forum. On the opening day of the 2017 Global Wellness Summit, health and wellness leaders united behind the first global commitment to achieve a world free of preventable disease, a moonshot that is arguably as urgent as it is massive in scope.

Hotels, Alternative Accommodations and Wellness: Jan D. Freitag, Senior Vice President, STR, Inc., U.S.
The report card for the US hotel industry, STR compiles market data for the industry. Gyms are a commodity and prevalent in mid to high-end hotels, but less so in economy hotels, which incidentally are also more likely to have ‘smoking permitted’ rooms. Spas of course are found in luxury and upscale properties, but in a sea of brands, how can a hotel brand differentiate itself? Every brand has their own answer, create a wellness brand, such as Even hotels, Westin Workout. The alternative is to buy a brand, such as Hyatt acquiring Miraval and exhale spas. Luxury hotels with spas charge a significantly higher room rate, however the relationship is tenuous – do hotels get to charge more because they have a spa, or are spas more prevalent in hotels that charge more?
