Exercise Is Medicine™
This is an initiative of the American College of Sports Medicine.  The vision is to make physical activity and exercise a standard part of a disease prevention and treatment medical paradigm in the United States and for physical activity to be considered by all healthcare providers as a vital sign in every patient visit thus leading to overall improvement in the public's health and long-term reduction in healthcare cost.

American Lung Association Of California
I have presented the Asthma and Exercise for Children Program to Orange County schools and organizations.   I teach about how important exercise is for Asthmatic children and adults.   The Asthma Walks that are held annually around the country bring awareness to the disease and raise funds for needed research and education.   I support the Orange County walk.

This organization is a leader in the fight against heart disease and stroke.   I have lost family members to heart disease. I continue to teach about health, fitness and nutrition which help to combat heart disease.  
American Diabetes Association
This disease is epidemic.  It is present in my family which makes it personal to me. Approximately 17 million people in the United States have diabetes.   Because of the obesity epidemic, now children are getting the Adult Type II diabetes.
