MILWAUKEE, Jan. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Joan Lunden, the nation's longest-running morning news anchor hosted ABC's Good Morning America for nearly two decades. During her tenure she reported from 26 countries, covered four presidents, five Olympics, and two Royal weddings. One of the most visible women in the country, Lunden has devoted much of her career to educating Americans about health and wellness through her books, speeches, and national media campaigns. Lunden's years in broadcast television have endeared her to audiences nationwide, and she continues to reach millions of Americans with her work as a vocal parenting and women's health advocate.

Health Corner, a weekly series sponsored by Walgreens, focuses on health issues important to women. Recent interviewees include Sally Field about osteoporosis and bone health, Jamie Lee Curtis on digestive health, "You Doc" Dr. Michael Roizen on weight loss, and ABC anchor Bob Woodruff and wife Lee on overcoming traumatic brain injury.

Health Corner also includes real people's touching stories, medical breakthroughs from coast to coast, "Kids' Corner", about your child's mind, body and spirit, and "That Certain Something", focusing on health, style and beauty.

A total of 26 episodes per season are being produced by Marx Creative in Milwaukee.

"It's a great honor to be part of a Health Corner, a show that has been focusing on health issues that are important to me, as well as women at any stage of their lives," says Lunden. "My goal is to bring even more focus and attention to health concerns women share, whether they're in college, young Moms, sandwich generation or aging adults."

Lunden is a best-selling author, her books include: Joan Lunden's Healthy Cooking, Joan Lunden's Healthy Living, Growing Up Healthy: Protecting your child now through Adulthood, A Bend in the Road Is Not the End of the Road, Wake Up Calls: Making the Most Out of Every Day (Regardless of What Life Throws You), and Your Newborn Baby: Everything You Need to Know.

"Joan is one of the most respected women in America, and we are thrilled she will be hosting Health Corner," says Craig Sinclair, Walgreen vice president of advertising. "Her experience as a journalist, mom and healthcare advocate will elevate Health Corner, and provide viewers with resources, information and inspiration they won't find anywhere else."
