Dr. Deepak Chopra speaks at the launch of Stay Well Meetings at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas

Life goes on as usual at the MGM Grand Hotel & Resort in Las Vegas—with its vast array of gambling, entertainment and dining options—but a progressive health-and-wellness program is continuing to become a more vital part of the scene.

In 2012, MGM Grand partnered with Delos, a company that focuses on nurturing and promoting health and well-being in indoor environments, to transform 42 hotel rooms on the 14th floor into Stay Well Rooms, which contain a multitude of health-and-wellness features.

The rooms have been popular among meeting groups and other guests, so early this year Delos and MGM converted the additional 129 rooms on the 14th floor into Stay Well Rooms. And on Aug. 18, the collaborators took another major step by unveiling Stay Well Meetings, consisting of dozens of healthy features including an advanced air purification system, circadian lighting, hypoallergenic cleaning products, ergonomic elements, a hydration station, aromatherapy and healthy menu options.
