NASABA Supports White House Childhood Obesity Initiative with Michele Obama

August 2, 2012

SABA Philadelphia members Neil Maskeri, Aneesh Mehta, and Nadeem Bezar attended the LET’s MOVE! event at the Lenfest Police Athletic Club in Philadelphia on July 18, 2012. The event featured 12 mayors from across the country, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, and keynote speaker Michelle Obama.

LET’s MOVE! was part of the First Lady’s ongoing initiative geared towards fighting childhood obesity. The First Lady noted that the goal of this initiative is “not to teach people what to eat, but how to teach people to lead healthier lives.”

Obama announced a new nationwide effort that will provide local mayors with tools and technical assistance to improve nutrition and promote physical activity among our nation’s youth. The mayors in attendance included Michael Nutter of Philadelphia, PA, Cory Booker of Newark, NJ, and Mick Cornett of Oklahoma City, OK.

After the event, Maskeri, Mehta, and Bezar had the privilege of meeting with Mayor Nutter.
