Video: Discussing health matters at the Humana Challenge

The inaugural Humana Challenge was a success well beyond the golf course. Under the direction of former President Bill Clinton, the PGA Tour event formerly known as the Bob Hope Desert Classic was also the backdrop for a first-ever "Health Matters" Summit on the Tuesday prior to the first round, with a number of distinguished speakers addressing a range of health and wellness topics.

The golf world was well represented, including Golf Digest's own Editorial Director Jerry Tarde, who moderated a lively discussion on health in the workplace on a panel that also included, among others, former NBA star Bob Lanier and Humana CEO Mike McCallister. A video of that discussion can be seen below.

Another discussion included PGA Tour player Notah Begay III, who discussed health issues facing Native Americans; and Annika Sorenstam, who spoke about the the need for physical education in schools.
