Healthfinder.gov is a new initiative devoted to wellness and prevention. Faced with a three trillion
dollar-a-year healthcare budget, our government is up against incredible odds. Corporate and business leaders,
educators, health scientists and the media need to come together to support this government initiative, define wellness and prioritize ways we can reverse
the exisiting expensive disease model with crisis intervention as the modem operand. No doubt, a battle will ensue between those in healthcare who are benefitting from America's poor health and
business, insurance, and individuals who are shouldering the burden. Part of the challenge is to "sell" the idea that everyone must accept personal responsibilty for his or her own health and participate in difficult life and
death decision-making. Are you willing and ready to examine your own health and the health care needs of your family? Lowering healthcare costs may depend on how you answer this question. WHF embraces wellness and has
defined a path with its highly successful Teen Esteem Health and Fitness program and National Women's Heart Week. Please support WHF and it nationally and internationally acclaimed programs by making a donation today. It's time to give wellness a chance. Take Care of Your Heart.
