Registration is now open for the Health and Wellness Coalition of Wichita’s 10th annual Working Well Conference, according to a news release.

The conference will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Aug. 26 at the Hyatt Regency, 400 W. Waterman.

The event is for senior management staff, human resources professionals, health promotion staff and employee benefits managers who want to learn more about worksite wellness programs.

This year’s keynote speakers are David Maxfield and Bob Chapman, according to the coalition’s website. Maxfield is an academic and social science researcher who studies what drives employee behavior. Chapman is chairman and CEO of Barry-Wehmiller Companies, a capital equipment and engineering consulting firm.

A pre-conference workshop will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. on Aug. 25 for an additional charge.
