Program topics have covered a wide range of subject matter discussed by respected experts in the health field. Popular themes have included the correlation between heart health and a healthy lifestyle, blue zones, the benefits of a plant-based diet and other similar issues.

Anyone who has an idea for a health-oriented educational speech should submit the concept to Paula Kreissler at paula@healthysavannah.org. The deadline is Tuesday, January 15.

Applications should include the presenter’s name, title, company and contact information, along with the proposed topic, a description of the speech, sample articles or videos of previous presentations and any supporting materials to demonstrate expertise.
