Healthy Initiative: Transforming Our Nation’s Health 1 City At A Time
The Healthy Initiative Foundation is a nationwide nonprofit effort that advocates disease prevention. Their mission is to defeat obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancers + other lifestyle diseases with wellness, nutrition, fitness, + mental-emotional strength.
Healthy Initiative founder Shea Vaughn is the mother of one of Hollywood’s most loved movie icons, Vince Vaughn (see him star in The Internship Google spoof this summer :)
i was so excited to interview Shea + now i'm her biggest fan :)
Shea created a revolutionary wellness lifestyle transformation practice. Launching in Chicago right now, the goal of her nationwide strategic partnership effort is to build healthy happy lives all across America :)
Shea has devoted her life to helping people break old negative habits + replace them with healthier choices. Fueled by an endless positive attitude, Shea + her team of experts inspire + deliver an exceptionally healthy Mind, Body + Heart experience.
Q Why do you describe it as a healthy "Mind, Body + Heart" experience?
A The heart is the 1st cell made at human conception, it's who you are.
Q WoW. That is so powerful. Why did you start a healthy transformations nonprofit?
A I saw The Weight of the Nation documentary on obesity + i thought what can i do to help people who are dieting + yoyoing + stuck? Obesity is a preventable tragedy.
It's not a New Year's Eve resolution or a wish. They need life skills.
Q Where did you get your ability?
A Dancing from childhood gave me discipline + responsibility to do my best so I could be part of the team + perform.
Healthy Initiative's 1st group of 40 participants are following Shea's 90-day program from her book "Breakthrough"+ given the necessary tools to embrace a healthier lifestyle + become tomorrow’s community ambassadors. (i ordered her book)

"Shea's doctor-endorsed East meets West lifestyle practice, supported by 5 Living Principles of Well-Being: Commitment, Perseverance, Self-Control, Integrity + Love, provides dynamic combination of body resistance exercises that build exceptional body/core strength + muscle/joint flexibility."
Shea's been featured on many TV programs, including Ellen.
