Thinking About The Amazing People I Met In D.C.

Posted May 7th, 2010

As I mentioned in my blog on April 13, I was honored to be one of only 10 people invited to Washington D.C. to provide input in developing the First Lady’s Let’s Move initiative to end childhood obesity in a generation. I was the only person at the table representing the parents’ voice.

I now have a few photos of this meeting and some of the amazing people that I met.

This is Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary, Health & Human Services as she announced community grants.

Now I’m back from D.C. and taking this opportunity to launch my own urgent Call to Action for parents! Have you Signed Up yet? This just can’t be the first generation where the life span of our children is shorter than their parents! Let’s make things better for our children today and for the next generation.
