Dr. Wallace “J” Nichols announced as opening general session speaker at AWWA’s annual conference

Dr. Wallace “J” Nichols will address water professionals at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, June 8 during the opening general session of the American Water Works Association’s Annual Conference & Exposition at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif. Dr. Nichols is a leading biologist and New York Times bestselling author of Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do.

Sponsored by HomeServe, a leading provider of home emergency repair service plans, Dr. Nichols will delve into the emotional, behavioral, psychological and physical connections that draw humans to water. His bestselling book, Blue Mind, examines that crucial relationship that humans have with water. He will also discuss recent findings in neuroscience that indicate proximity to water can improve mood, performance, health and success.

“AWWA members naturally have a strong connection to water because of their tireless work in ensuring it’s available, safe and clean,” said AWWA Chief Executive Officer David LaFrance. “Dr. Nichols will explain why what water professionals accomplish every day makes the world a better place to live, work and play—he truly speaks to why we all love water.”

ACE15, which will bring an estimated 12,000 water experts to the area June 7-10, is the longest running water conference in the world, having first convened in 1881. The event features several hundred expert presentations and an exposition of more than 500 companies showcasing the latest innovations in water technology.

Media Note: Accredited members of the media may attend ACE15 at no charge. However, they are required to register with AWWA Public Affairs. For media registration, please visit the press room or contact Deirdre Mueller at 303-347-6140.
