This week, we highlight physical activity initiatives from the White House to the Sonoran Desert:
- HHS Secretary and Surgeon General Join First Lady to Announce Plans to Combat Overweight and Obesity and Support Healthy Choices (Source: HHS) Marking the release of a new Surgeon General report, the First Lady teams up with the Department of Health and Human Services on a mission to reduce obesity in the United States.
- 150 4th grade students hike for health & education in Sonoran Desert (Source: Examiner.com) Arizona schools introduce students to hiking, by extending the classroom into the desert.
What are your thoughts on how the First Lady and HHS should address obesity in the U.S? If you were leading the initiative, how would you promote physical activity?
