February marks Black History Month and interestingly, this year’s theme is Black Health and Wellness. Two key aspects that are being considered during the month are the historical contributions the African diaspora has made to the fields of health and wellness, and current-day health care inequities and challenges. As we celebrate Black History Month, it is also a reminder for our businesses that there is value both in learning about diverse wellness practices as well as reaching out to diverse communities as we look to expand our customer base.
Speaking of expanding, we are thrilled to report that Wellness Travel University now has nearly 1200+ registered users. In conjunction with this rapid growth, we will be launching our Wellness Travel University social media pages. Follow them to gather breaking travel news, advisor features and information on wellness trends. There will also be giveaways!
Additionally, we will soon announce the date of our first wellness travel webinar. It’s coming soon, so be on the lookout.
