Let’s Move! Cities, Towns and Counties

Posted by on August 06, 2012

NLC’s Institute for Youth, Education and Families (YEF Institute) will host a free, hour-long webinar on Wed., Aug. 15, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time focused on a new project to help local elected officials reduce childhood obesity.  As part of this project, NLC is leading efforts to enhance the work of Let’s Move! Cities, Towns, and Counties (LMCTC), a key component of First Lady Michelle Obama’s comprehensive Let’s Move! initiative, which is dedicated to reversing the childhood obesity epidemic within a generation.  Local elected officials can sign up for and learn more about LMCTC at http://www.healthycommunitieshealthyfuture.org.

During the August 15 webinar, “Healthy Communities for a Healthy Future: Supporting Let’s Move! Cities, Towns and Counties,” speakers will discuss how NLC and its partners will assist local elected officials who sign up their communities to participate in LMCTC in achieving five goals to improve the health of local residents.
