And we, in turn, are affected not only emotionally but also physically and spiritually." Greg Anderson (American best selling Author and founder of the American Wellness Project., b.1964)

The Women's Heart Foundation specializes in the design and implementation of wellness, prevention and early intervention programs.

As the front runner for women's cardiovascular disease issues, WHF is proud that the movement that it started in 1986 is now a global one, with mobilization of world health organizations, government, academic and science communities to bring about social change.


The American Lung Association created this new campaign, "Quitter in You," to help smokers find the motivation to try and quit again, and access the help they need to succeed. The way we see it, there is no need for people to feel badly about their quit attempts. In fact, it’s counterproductive. And that’s what is so refreshingly different about this campaign.

The American Lung Association wants smokers to know that they are not failures, and that with each quit attempt, they learn a little more about what works and doesn’t work for them. Each attempt is a necessary step on the road to becoming an ex-smoker forever. And when you're ready to try quitting again, the American Lung Association is here to help with a wide array of resources that prove the campaign’s rallying cry ,"We support the quitter in you."
