USANA13 Media Coverage Featured

Thousands of our closest friends joined us for the 2013 USANA International Convention, and thousands — or maybe even hundreds of thousands — of others experienced the excitement via the media.

Our public relations team worked overtime to ensure coverage for our biggest event of the year. Television and radio stations, print publications and online media recognized the newsworthiness of #USANA13 and reported on various aspects.

But chances are, many of you missed the broadcasts because you either were having too much fun experiencing #USANA13 on your own, or you were outside of the Salt Lake area.

Not to fear.

We’ve compiled several of the various media mentions here for you to watch or read, and share with your friends who might want to know what this company called USANA Health Sciences is all about.

Thank you to Public Relations Specialist Allie Henderson for helping us compile the mentions!
