Fitness & Wellness

Rise and shine each morning with Pharma/Biotech GTN Summit by participating in a wellness activity before the start of the day's sessions. Enjoy some stretching with yoga instructors, or mindfulness meditation to start the day off right.

During the event, take regular breaks from your screen with time set aside for important wellness activities, such as: 

  • Hydration Breaks -- Did you know that a glass of water can increase focus by as much as 30%?
  • Healthy Snack Breaks -- Food is fuel! Keep your mind energized with a healthy snack.
  • Stretch & Movement Breaks -- Give your seat a break! Take a few mins to stand, stretch, and move around.
