GWD founder Belgin Aksoy appointed president of the executive board of Turkish Heart Foundation
By Jane Kitchen 28 Feb 2019
Aksoy has been active with the Turkish Heart Foundation for ten years
Global Wellness Day founder Belgin Aksoy has been appointed as the new president of the executive board of Turkish Heart Foundation.

After graduating from Institut Hotelier Cesar Ritz in Switzerland, Aksoy began her career with a mission to create a physically, mentally and spiritually better world for years to come. To that end, Aksoy became a member of the Turkish Heart Foundation to join their efforts in raising awareness on cardiovascular diseases, and has been active with the organisation for ten years.

“Due to the difficult living conditions in Turkey and around the world, one of the most important problems affecting the quality of life and increases in death within communities is cardiovascular diseases, and it is devastating to see that the age range affected by these diseases has decreased,” said Aksoy.

“Therefore, since the establishment of the Turkish Heart Foundation in 1975, we proudly work towards educating and touching the hearts of many communities through various organisations and awareness activities,” she continued.

Aksoy founded Global Wellness Day in 2012, bringing her vision to the world that wellness is not a luxury but the inherent right of every individual. Global Wellness Day is celebrated on the second Saturday of June every year with free wellness activities across the globe and the idea that “one day you can change your whole life”.

The mission and vision of the Turkish Heart Foundation and Global Wellness Day focuses not only on physical health but also on emotional wellness with “goodness” and “good-heartedness”, an important and meaningful treatment method for mental health.

Established in 1975, the Turkish Heart Foundation has been a member of the European Heart Association since 1995 and an official member of the World Heart Federation since 2001.
