The Lifestyle Chronicles - NGA Healthy America Forum
The two days consisted of sharing best practices for improving wellness where people live, work and learn. Discussions centered on facilitating healthy choices in communities, implementing model programs and policies at public and private worksites and using the public education system to improve child nutrition and physical fitness.
The governors are in a unique position to play a positive role in helping Americans change behaviors and choose healthier lifetyles. Individually and as a group they appear to be commited to this purpose. Listed below are the governors serving as a Task Force to accomplish the objectives.
Governor of Arkansas
Governor of Arizona
NGA Vice Chair
Governor of South Carolina
Governor of California
Governor of Iowa
Governor of Tennessee
Over the next week or so, I will be reporting to you about different aspects of the forum. Please share with me any thoughts you have about this effort. Also, contact members of the task force and your governor about thoughts regarding this project, and copy me so I can follow-up (marcusnewberry(at)charter(dot)com). I think the governors have an excellent opportunity to accomplish something and I will do anything possible to assist. It can't be done without your involvement.
Also, I saw Arnold and listened to his presentation from a choice seat in the front row but did not get the chance to meet him.
