CurrentHealthIssues.org was created to provide a place for people to discuss current and specific health issues and well-being. The site was developed by Samad Khan and Eddie Lee Lawrence in 2011, because they wanted to try and help people by discussing topics that their own friends and family have experienced. I would use this website just to gain someone else’s perspective on health and for extra information. 2. Fox News.com Fair & Balanced: Health. (2013). Retrieved from http://www.foxnews.com/health/index.html.

Fox News.com is the official website of Fox News which keeps us up to date on news, politics, entertainment, tech, science, health, travel, lifestyle, and sports. It also provides articles and videos on any topic mentioned. I would use this site to get up to date information on health issues not only in the U.S. but around the world. 3. Health.com: Fitness, Nutrition, Tools, News, Health Magazine. (2013). Retrieve from http://www.health.com/health/.

Health.com is produced by editors and journalists dedicated to delivering accurate, trusted, up-to-date health and medical information, for consumers. They focus on problem-solving content to help you make decisions during complicated, stressful times. For additional medical and diagnostic information they partner with medically accredited sources. I would use this source to find information on recipes and fitness tips to help me get back to my pre-baby body. Professional Associations:

NAHF accomplishes this work by fostering and supporting Governor’s and State Councils and coalitions that promote and encourages regular physical activity. I would use this website to obtain and share information with my state council and if I need to my governor as well. 2. The Corporate Health and Wellness Association: The Voice of Employee Wellness. (2009). Retrieved from http://wellnessassociation.com/.

The Corporate Health and Wellness Association (CHWA), also known as the Health and Wellness Association or the Corporate Wellness Association is the first national non-profit association founded on July 4, 2009 which focuses on health, wellness, disease prevention and management for employers, employees and their families. I would use this site when I am an employee of a company or leader and need information or help in performing my profession successfully. 3. IDEA Health and Fitness Association. (2013). Retrieved from http://www.ideafit.com/. Since 1982, IDEA has provided health and fitness professionals with unbiased research, educational resources and industry leadership.
