We are excited to announce our new partnership with Fitness Event Strategy Team (FEST) to launch the Medical Fitness Tour under the Medical Fitness Education Foundation “MFEF”. They are behind the annual FitnessFest “FEST” Conference & Expo event for the past 20 years, as well as events like the Functional Aging Summit, AquaCon, Desert Moon Endeavors Retreats, Gila River Wellness Camps, Salt River Pima-Maricopa Diabetes Awareness Days, and smaller local fitness programs.

The “Tour” offers fitness & allied health professionals a minimum of two, 1-day full workshops and 10 non-competing workshops.

Topics include, not be limited to: Active Aging, Alzheimer’s, Arthritis, Autism, Cancer, Diabetes, working with those with Disabilities, Fall Prevention, Fibromyalgia, Heart Disease, Joint Replacement, Mental Health Challenges, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s,  Osteoporosis, Respiratory Disease, Stroke and women’s health issues including pre & postpartum care.

We are offering presenters a free opportunity to promote themselves, their course/workshops via a 90-minute workshop and a free vendor table at these events. FitnessFest will have CEC’s set up for the Tour.  Attendees will be granted a one-year professional membership to the MFN (MFN members will be given a discount as another benefit of being part of this registry)

Lisa Dougherty the founder of MFN and the new MFEF is passionate about connecting people in need across the country with fitness professionals that have a background in the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of chronic diseases, medical conditions, and disabilities. She is eager to facilitate opportunities for disease/condition-specific education to benefit the aging population, and she has brought FEST on board to help with that mission.

Lisa’s vision is to spread this type of education around the country and continue to build the MFN registry of qualified professionals in the area of prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of chronic disease/medical conditions.
