Living your best life with Chronic Disease

Hope + Engagement + Action + Resources = Thriving

About the HEART Initiative

Welcome to the H.E.A.R.T. Initiative, a social impact organization dedicated to substantially improving quality of life.

Through online support, education, and evidence based strategies, the HEART Initiative focuses on developing Hope, Engagement, Action and Resources designed to inspire Thriving while living with ongoing health challenges.

What to expect from the HEART Initiative:


Training in Resilience Building 

 The HEART Initiative offers a 10-week training in resilience building, designed to create both immunity against the unique challenges that living with chronic disease in the larger scope of life can create, and provides strategies and interventions proven to increase well-being.


Active Participation in Studies

As we get closer to the start date, you will be invited to take part in our study. Should you choose to participate, you will be directed to our survey page where the information you provide will help advance our efforts to inform the healthcare community on best practices for creativing positive quality of life outomes. 


Access to Community Support and Resources

All who register with the HEART Initiative will have access to our extensive resources free of charge. Bonus materials, discounts on trainings, and early registration for special events will be made available to sustaining and supporting members. Our goal is to make the services of the HEART Initiative accessible to all individuals living with chronic disease. Your donation will help make that dream a reality.

Sustainable well-being is not the absence of disease, but the presence of positive human capacity and the ability to thrive in the face of health challenges. This is the right of all human beings. This is the mission of the HEART Initiative.
