When WomenHeart needed a unique world class program to put us on the map we turned to Ed Faruolo who conceptualized, created, and drove a breakthrough program with Cigna Corporation. He utilized his BrandBreath methodology that allowed both WomenHeart and Cigna to engage the public, congressional leaders, healthcare, and business communities in a way that garnered greater attention and results than larger organizations with greater funding. But more importantly, as I like to say, “we saved some lives together!”
