Q & A

Your involvement is key to ensuring a healthy future for our children and everyone has a role to play in reducing childhood obesity — including elected officials from all levels of government, schools, health care professionals, faith-based and community-based organizations, and private sector companies. The goal of Let’s Move! Meetups is to inspire people to take action in cities and towns across the country to address the problem.
