Health Coach Day 2020
Our Global Day of Wellness Recognition!

IIN dedicated June 16th to all Health Coaches and wellness advocates around the world. This day of recognition highlighted the important role that Health Coaches and wellness advocates play in reversing the global health crisis. The three key pillars of this Health Coach Day — community, education, and service — were echoed throughout the day’s events.

  • Community brings IIN and non-IIN Health Coaches together for a shared purpose: to make the world a healthier and happier place.

  • Education about what Health Coaches do and the value of their work is highlighted in the incredible work of our advocates in Washington, D.C., moving the health coaching profession ever forward.

  • Service is reflected in our collaborative partnership with WhyHunger, and we’re honored to work alongside them to further demonstrate the need for Health Coaches around the world.

Healthcoach day 2020: petition

The last year has been challenging in many ways, and as we navigate our way through a changed world, the need for Health Coaches is even more apparent. With COVID-19 impacting those with chronic conditions at much higher rates, creating healthier diet and lifestyle habits is critical to protect our health in the short and long term. Health Coaches trained through credible institutions are well-equipped to enter the health and wellness workforce, guiding clients through preventive health practices to lower healthcare costs, reduce the burden of chronic disease, and live a healthier and happier life. IIN is dedicated to spreading the message of the value of Health Coaches, and we hope you’ll join us in spreading this message by signing our petition to the World Health Organization: Sign the U.S. Petition to the United States Congress click here. & Global Petition to the World Health Organization click here.
