This event, the first in the Innovators Exchange series, will demonstrate how local companies are using advanced marketing techniques to motivate people to live healthier lives.

WHO? Don't let the title mislead you - this event is not reserved for health professionals and fitness nuts. It's for you - marketers, technologists, and HR professionals. (And, of course, health professionals and fitness nuts!)
