Palm Beach Daily News - - BUSINESS - By MATT MOR­GAN

Health in­dus­try lead­ers from around the world are flock­ing to Palm Beach for a Global Well­ness Sum­mit that starts Sun­day at The Break­ers.

The Sum­mit, which be­gan in 2007, is an an­nual, in­vite-only con­fer­ence for the ma­jor play­ers in the health care field to talk about what’s com­ing next. The con­fer­ence was held in Aus­tria last year and has been in lo­ca­tions such as Bali, In­done­sia; Is­tan­bul, Turkey and New York.

The theme of this year’s Sum­mit is the busi­ness of “Liv­ing a Well Life,” and the three-day event will fea­ture an un­prece­dented lineup of over 50 speak­ers and pre­sen­ters, each shar­ing his or her in­sights on how — and why — well­ness is chang­ing the way busi­ness is done and what the fu­ture of well­ness holds.

It has grown ev­ery year, and a record 600 at­ten­dees are reg­is­tered this year for the sold-out sum­mit, ac­cord­ing to its web­site. There are more than 50 speak­ers and pre­sen­ters. In ad­di­tion to round-ta­ble dis­cus­sions and work­shops Mon­day through Wed­nes­day, there will be short talks from speak­ers such as TV per­son­al­ity Dr. Mehmet Oz, who bought a house on the North End in 2015, and for­mer Sur­geon Gen­eral Richard Car­mona.

Top­ics for the 20-minute speeches in­clude “The Im­per­a­tive for a Well Life: 75 Per­cent of the Cost of Chronic Ill­ness is Pre­ventable,” “We Don’t Need More Time ... We Need More En­ergy” and “The Trans­for­ma­tive Power of Life­style Medicine.”

Break­ers Pres­i­dent Paul Leone will give a speech ti­tled “Health & Well-Be­ing: The Break­ers’ Story.”
