  • One of the most respected names in American broadcast journalism.
  • Breast cancer survivor.
  • Health and cancer awareness advocate.
  • Author of many bestselling books on health and well-being.

Award-winning journalist, television presenter, author, breast cancer survivor—Joan Lunden has achieved and overcome much over the course of her now 40 year career. The former Good Morning America anchor has used her influence to raise awareness of breast cancer and build supportive networks for cancer patients as well as working women balancing career and family. Through various means including public speaking, online media, and advocacy, she consistently shares her knowledge with the general public so that they may create healthy lifestyles for a better tomorrow.

Linden began her career in broadcast journalism in 1975, when she joined New York's WABC-TV Eyewitness News. Within a year she was working for Good Morning America as a feature reporter, and was quickly promoted to co-anchor due to her popularity. For nearly 2 decades, millions of Americans began their day with Lunden delivering them top stories as well as her own insight. As the longest running host ever on early morning television, Lunden reported from 26 countries and covered 4 presidential administrations, in addition to keeping Americans up-to-date on how to care for their health, their families, and their homes.

In 2014 Lunden publicly announced that she was battling triple-negative breast cancer; she proceeded to document her treatment through a video blog on her website, JoanLunden.com. Declared cancer free in 2015, she has since made it her mission to share everything she learned from the experience, publishing the memoir Had I Known and regularly updating her online channel ALIVE with Joan, a resource and platform for women with breast cancer.

Lunden’s demographic is far-reaching. Like many Baby Boomers, she is a working mother and has cared for an aging parent, giving her an understanding of the stresses working women face today. She has been the spokesperson for various health advocacy organizations, including The American Heart Association, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and The American Lung Association, and currently, the senior referral service A Place for Mom.

PROGRAMS

Joan Lunden’s style can be best described as down-to-earth. There is no artificiality in her speech, no glibness. In other words, she tells it like it is. She has a message she wants to convey, and she knows how to do it in the most effective way possible.

Lunden has always been deeply concerned with the physical well-being of her fellow humans. With years of experience in broadcast journalism, she has access to knowledge many do not, and she is desperate to share that knowledge with a world that could really use it. This, as well as her firsthand experience with a terrible disease, tells you all you need to know about how much she values life and how much she wants you to fight for yours.

Despite the breadth of facts and figures Lunden provides in her programs, her approach is in no way clinical. She understands that warmth and comfort in times of hardship are just as important as practical advice. She will tell you what you need to know in your fight against cancer, but she will also tell you that one of the most important paths to better health and well-being is to care for one another.

A Bend in the Road is not the End of the Road

Joan speaks frequently on the topics of motivation, inspiration and change. Leaving her seat on Good Morning America after two decades, making her the longest-running morning show host ever, Joan had to deal with reinventing herself in front of millions of Americans. She has toured with Tony Robbins sharing her "10 Positive Principles for Dealing with Change." The Ten Best Secrets to Success

Joan shares her personal story of making it to the top of the tough television news business as well as how she reinvented herself launching her own Smart&Simple Solution brand on QVC. Joan also discusses what she’s learned from highly successful business tycoons to U.S. Presidents that she’s interviewed over her three decades as a journalist. As one of the most well-known working moms in the country, Joan also talks about balancing home and family: how to keep your family values, still have dinner together and have “non-texting” family time all the while being a successful working woman.

The Secrets To Living Younger Longer

With three best-selling books on health; Healthy Cooking, Healthy Living and Growing up Healthy, Joan is constantly asked how she remains so young and vibrant. In this personal and motivational talk, Joan shares what she’s learned from the experts she’s interviewed and how she stays at the top of her game.

Now That We Have It All, How Do We Do it All?

On the topic of women′s changing roles and balancing work and family, Joan shares her personal story as one of the first women in America to bring her baby to work when she became the host of Good Morning America, setting a trend for corporations across the country. Joan takes a historical look at how life has changed dramatically for women in America over the past few decades, from her interviews with women’s activist Gloria Steinem to Betty Freidan on her social-changing book The Feminine Mystique to Gail Sheehy on the passages of women’s lives. Joan explores some of the new challenges women face holding down jobs outside the home while caring for their families, in this national debate about women′s roles that is still going strong today.

America’s Next Health Crisis; Caring for Our Aging Parents as People Live Longer Than Ever Before

66 million Americans are caregivers for someone they love, and that is 30% of the U.S. population. Some experts are predicting that figure will triple over the next decade. A longer life expectancy has led to an increased demand for family members to serve as caregivers. Caregiving can be a demanding, stressful and seemingly thankless job and often devastates families economically. It is without doubt this is the next health crisis facing our country.

Joan shares her personal experience of caring for her 93 year old mother while still working and raising young children. We all know that the day will come when we have to deal with the demise of parent, a spouse or another family member. There is no escaping this aspect of life; however many find it difficult to discuss end-of-life issues. However Joan does just that as host of RLTV’s Taking Care with Joan Lunden, a program about family caregiving, and also as co-author of the soon-to-be-released Chicken Soup for the Soul; Family Caregivers. Joan discusses her seven secrets to success for caregivers.

I Was Not Born Blonde or Jewish

A personal account of moving East to the Big Apple, making it in the media and converting to Judaism, all choices that played a part in shaping Joan’s life. This is a humorous yet inspirational discussion about how one’s life choices can bring them happiness.

Had I Known
Former host of Good Morning America, health advocate, international speaker, mother of seven, grandmother of one and New York Times bestselling author, Joan Lunden, speaks candidly about her battle against breast cancer and her quest to learn about it and teach others, and the transformative effect it has had on her life.

With a large extended family counting on her, giving up was not an option. After announcing her diagnosis of Stage 2 Triple Negative Breast Cancer on Good Morning America,, people all over the country rallied around Joan as she went into warrior mode. Joan appeared on the cover of People Magazine bald, showing the world her brave resolve and that breast cancer does not need to define you.

Joan’s illness has changed her in profoundly unexpected ways and has redefined her values and most of all, her health. Following a new clean and healthy way of eating, Joan became her best advocate by taking control of her nutrition, which helped combat the adverse side effects of chemotherapy like a warrior.

Uncharacteristically vulnerable, irreverent and straight from the heart, this presentation is a deeply personal and powerful story of pain, persistence, and perseverance in which Joan openly evaluates her decision to go public with her battle, shaving her head, wig shopping, re-connecting with her viewers, rediscovering her purpose, and ultimately realizing that sometimes you have to look back to move forward.

Joan also speaks on:

  • My Breast Cancer Journey.
  • From Career to Caregiving and Everything in Between
  • Embracing Change: The New Reality for Your Family's Future
  • Fostering Leadership and Achieving Dreams
  • My Journey From Small Town Sacramento to The Big Apple

Growing Up Healthy
Whether you′re expecting a child, are the parent of a newborn, a toddler, a school-aged child, or an adolescent...if they′re under your guidance you still have a chance to offer them the gift of a healthy, disease-free life.

We as parents have it within our power to help protect our children from disease and very possibly lengthen their lives. By paying careful attention to the foods our children are eating, by teaching them about nutrition and making some important alterations in their diets, we can become take-action parents on the front lines against future illness.

Growing Up Healthy contains the lifesaving knowledge we all need to shield our children from disease and help them grow into strong, fit adults. Based on groundbreaking research that shows the link between childhood nutrition and chronic illness in later years, this landmark book shows how feeding our children right during the years when their young bodies are growing can lessen and even prevent their risk of developing many debilitating and deadly chronic adult diseases -- obesity, heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, Type II diabetes, osteoporosis, and cancer.

In Growing Up Healthy, Joan Lunden, one of America′s most trusted journalists and most visible working moms, teams up with Dr. Myron Winick, a leading expert in childhood nutrition, to produce a guide that shows how to feed our children from birth through adolescence; how to teach our children good health and eating habits; how to protect them from the ravages of so-called "adult diseases"; and how to add quality years to our children′s life span.
