Don’t believe the wellness trend is here to stay? Here are some numbers to consider from Global Wellness Institute: The industry grew 12.8% from 2015-2017, to $4.2 trillion. And while personal care, beauty and anti-aging came in as the top sector ($1.1 billion), preventative and personalized medicine and public health ($575 million) doesn’t fall far behind.
Health care and hospitals in the Pocono Mountains region are tangible proof, sprinting with wellness initiatives and getting their patients up to speed with everything from mobile mammography to complimentary skin cancer screenings. Health systems in the region are taking a leading role in getting residents to take advantage of the great access they enjoy to the great outdoors on a regular basis.
