Attendees receive state-of-the-art information that can be used by professionals who work independently or in fitness centers, health clubs, schools, the health care industry, business corporations and other community settings. To address its mission the International Health and Fitness Summit offers programming tracks that span the fitness and health care industries.
As part of its educational programming, ACSM’s International Health & Fitness Summit includes a selection of Industry-presented sessions relevant to health and fitness practice. These industry-presented session submissions are reviewed by the Summit Program Committee using the same rigorous criteria as non-sponsored sessions. If accepted, these sessions are clearly marked as “industry presented” in all promotional material. This designation provides Summit attendees with the context needed to evaluate the material that is presented. Summit participants are never unduly influenced to attend sponsored vs. non-sponsored sessions.
Consistent with ACSM’s long-standing policy, inclusion in Summit programming does not imply ACSM’s endorsement of the presenting sponsor or any industry-presented content. The financial support of these and other sponsors helps keep the International Health & Fitness Summit affordable for attendees and creates an overall positive Summit experience.
