Meeting people who work in a variety of organizations and industries is quite
enlightening. Interestingly, no matter their field or nature of their
organization, I hear fairly consistent themes regarding technology adoption.
This is particulary true as it pertains to wellness. I lectured at the
Symposium for the Army's MWR leadership in Louisville, KY on January 26,
