Manova’s mission is to encourage those at the frontier of health and wellness to power a global evolution in the ways we care for our selves and the world. Together, can explore a new era of global health by bringing forward stories and ideas from people who shape the future of health.

Manova is three days, October 14-16, at Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot. The event features morning and afternoon sessions each day. It features presenters including Jane Fonda, Katie Couric, and other leaders from the health and wellness community.

The Manova Global Summit on the Future of Health is produced by a partnership of Mark Addicks, the Chief Executive Officer and former Chief Marketing Officer of General Mills, Kathy Tunheim, Founder and President of Minneapolis-based communications firm Tunheim, Inc., and Arick Wierson, an entrepreneur and former senior media advisor to former New York City Mayor Michael R.

Building on the inaugural year’s success, the second Manova Summit will feature a strong speaker lineup, increased experiential exhibitions, and dynamic interactive sessions.
