Mission: All About Women (AAW) connects women with engaging, free resources to balance and renew their lives and improve their health.  AAW provides programs that are inclusive, interactive, accessible and fun through our website and events.
Programs: All About Women's two programs (website and events) serve the same goal - matching women and theirneeds with health and lifestyle improvement opportunities.  In 2011, AAW is introducing a "Year of Transformation" with bi-monthly events and year-round programing on our website. The Website is designed to provide education,  reliable local resources, a forum for women to connect with other women with similar concerns, and access to experts on all areas of health and wellness.  Health is defined broadly to include career, finances, legal, home, parenting, and other areas.  Women take personal responsibility for their unlimited potential and connect with the opportunities offered by AAW.  Whether they want to be more active, stop smoking or be more efficient with their time, AAW gives them easy-to-implement changes to achieve success. As always, all programs are free, accessible, inclusive, interactive, fun and involve numerous community partners.

I am proud to be a board member of All About Women, an organization that has helped thousands of women through innovative one day events. Now, the organization is offering the same programming online and becoming even more accessible for women everywhere at any time.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my interactions with women who have benefited from its resources and being a part of its continued development.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

connecting with intelligent, driven women to bring needed resources to all women.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Professionals, women who benefited from programs, subject matter experts, health workers

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make every woman aware of the importance of their own health, especially in relationg to taking care of others, and change behaviors to keep women healthy.

I waited in line with a 60 year old woman that had never had a vision test before, and couldn't even see the top letter of the board because her vision was so impaired and had never been tested.
 
What a great blessing AAW is to this area! I wish all communities could experience what East Tennessee did.

I went to the All About Women event last year, thinking that I was a very healthy 54-year-old woman. I decided to take advantage of all the free tests that Vanderbilt Medical Center was offering since my cousin had been diagnosed with osteoporosis. The good news was that all of the tests were good, except that my blood sugar was through the roof at 490! I couldn't believe it - and neither could they since I felt fine. They said I could have easily gone into a diabetic coma and immediately got me signed up at the Vanderbilt Eskind Diabetes Center where I was officially diagnosed with type 1 diabetes! I don't think I would have gone in for blood sugar testing, as I felt good and no one in my family has had diabetes. So the All About Women event saved my life! It's a wonderful event that I will forever be grateful of!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the account above about going to an All About Women event and getting the medical testing and diagnosis that saved my life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help them get these events in all cities in the U.S.!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The wonderful experts and volunteers, including medical professionals, that they get to be a part of the All About Women events.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all very professional and helped me with great information, advice and counseling.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Put these free events on in every U.S. city.

Ways to make it better...

I hadn't had a medical situation that was diagnosed during the event - but without that diagnosis I might be dead.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting events organized for new cities and the sponsorship and corporate support that's needed for them. The ones that they've done have all been very needed and very successful.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I will offer my time and marketing expertise to help them put on the next event in Nashville, and any contacts that I have in other cities. I will pass the word on about how great these events are.

This is a great organization designed to improve the health and well being of all women in Tennessee. Creating awareness of the resources available to women is an important goal. Women need to take care of themselves, as to health, finances, emotional support, etc. This group does an excellent job in helping all economic levels of women in the community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping them market their services.
