Weighing in on

According to the American Dietetic Association and Dietitians of Canada,
extremes in body weight are approaching epidemic proportions among
North American women. Approximately one-third of Americans are clinical-
ly obese, and more alarming to health care professionals, this number is still
climbing. A smaller, but also significant, portion of the population falls at
the opposite extreme - dangerously low body weight. At both ends of the
spectrum, health risks rise dramatically. In fact, nutritional factors have
been implicated in 7 of the 10 leading causes of death identified by the
Surgeon General for the year 2000, including heart disease, cancer, stroke,
diabetes, chronic lower respiratory disease, chronic liver disease, and cirrho-
sis. According to data from the Nutrition and Health Examination Surveys
conducted by the National Institutes of Health, the prevalence of obesity
increases with age. Obesity is also more common among women and certain
ethnic groups, including African and Mexican-Americans. Present research
has identified both genetic and cultural influences. Relatively few cases of
obesity are attributed to organic abnormalities such as hypothyroidism.

Foundation Donor Profile

Barbara Daugs Hunt, Phi Delta

(Barbara is a member of the Second Century Society with her gift of a life insurance policy to the AOII foundation.)

Barbara, why was it important to support the Foundation in this way?
I believe in the endowment concept Endowment income will always provide support lor programs I believe in.

I do make annual gifts as well, but this is an "insurance" policy for the future well being of AOII.

Why did you make this particular choicefor your future gift to the Foundation?
At that time in our lives, my husband and I weren't ready to think about our larger estate planning needs, and

so a life insurance policy seemed the easiest and most convenient It seemed like the bestfitfor us, because the payment of the premiums had
a fixed timeline, and of course, they were deductible annually.

How difficult was it to set up this gift?
Not a problem at all! Our agent came to the house, we told him what 1 wanted to do, and he outlined several options for amounts vs.

premiums, then set up all the paperwork One visit took care of eveiything. The Foundation received the premium notices, and then I sent a
gift in the same amount that was used to pay the premium. It was very convenient

What would you tellAOIIs considering this type of future gift?
It is very easy, there's no red tape, it's flexible because you can obtain the size of policy that meets your financial needsforaffordable

giving, youll like the feeling of supporting AOU's future, and it's a clear deduction on your taxes. And, once the policy is paid up, the cash
value continues to increase meaning your future gift is increasing without any further effort on your part! I'mreallyglad I could do it!
