NEHM visiting the White House this week!
In August 2010, we told you about St. Michael's Episcopal Church in Orlando, FL helping children get free sports physicals through the Be a Player program. In January 2011, NEHM highlighted the First Lady's launch of the Let's Move! toolkit for faith communities. The toolkit continues to be linked in our Resources section as well.
NEHM is a member of the National Council of Churches Health Task Force and has partnered with many groups to help spotlight the Let's Move! campaign led by Michelle Obama. We're thrilled that NEHM CEO Matthew Ellis has been invited as a part of this group to participate in a meeting with other faith leaders and Mrs. Obama's staff to discuss new strategies for the Let's Move Campaign. The meeting will take place Thursday, May 31 at the White House or Executive Office Building.
There will be much more to say about the meeting in coming weeks but this is such exciting news we wanted to share it with you now. In the meantime, check out success stories and a bulletin insert from Communities on the Move! Stay tuned for more updates!
