The American Institute of Stress

The American Institute of Stress is a non-profit organization established in 1978 at the request of Hans Selye to serve as a clearinghouse for information on all stress-related subjects. Other founding members included Linus Pauling, Alvin Toffler, Bob Hope, Michael DeBakey, Herbert Benson, Ray Rosenman, and other prominent physicians, health professionals, and lay individuals interested in exploring the multitudinous and varied effects of stress on our health and quality of life. In addition, AIS was formed to function as an ombudsman in this rapidly expanding field where a plethora of extravagant claims for worthless devices, nutritional products, and approaches threatened to drown out legitimate research efforts and advances.
