Date:1/9/2008

ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The HealthCentral Network, Inc. (http://www.HealthCentral.com) today announced that Jane Martin, an accomplished Respiratory Therapist, is joining the StopSmokingConnection.com community as an expert. Martin, author of Breathe Better, Live in Wellness: Winning Your Battle Over Shortness of Breath and web site director for Breathing Better, LivingWell.com, will write primarily about Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Focusing on COPD treatment and management, Martin will write about coping with COPD in daily life and therapies that enhance lung functioning.

"I'm excited to be part of The HealthCentral Network's new COPD site," said Martin. "I've worked closely for many years with smokers living in the grip of nicotine addiction and the fear -- and the reality -- of life with Emphysema and COPD. There is life after quitting. And there is life with Emphysema and COPD! Through my blog I hope to help you discover your best way to find it."

"Jane has the knowledge and experience to not only help smokers quit, but also help those who are dealing with conditions related to a long-term smoking habit," said Chris Schroeder, CEO and President of The HealthCentral Network. "We're excited to offer the StopSmokingConnection.com community the chance to connect with such an accomplished medical professional."

Martin works as a Respiratory Therapist in Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Holland, Mich. She is a member of the Michigan Society for Respiratory Care, the American Association for Respiratory Care, the Asthma Network of West Michigan, and serves on the editorial boards of The COPD Digest and Alpha-1-to-One.

StopSmokingConnection.com, one of The HealthCentral Network's newest sites, is dedicated to helping smokers and former smokers on their quest to overcome addiction. The site also provides targeted information on COPD, one of the top health risks associated with smoking.
