Mind Over Matter
Mental Wellness Takes Focus at This Year's PSIA Annual Meeting

Self-insured companies are uniquely affected by the issue of mental wellness. While less tangible and often less supported, mental wellness should still be a core component of your wellness strategy. Join us at the Annual Meeting where we will discuss achieving balance in mental wellness within the workplace, the benefits of wearable technology, and how self-insureds can maximize their medical set asides. By coming together to discuss this critical topic, we will all become stronger and more effective.

This year we will feature keynote speaker Hector Picard, an internationally-known motivational speaker and triathlete who lost both arms in an electrical accident 25 years ago.

Sponsorship opportunities are available, ranging from $1,500-$5,000. Exhibitorships are also available for $600, but you must be a PSIA member to exhibit.
