Leading Children to a Healthier Future
Let's Move Pittsburgh — modeled after First Lady Michelle Obama's national Let's Move! campaign to raise awareness about the benefits of healthy foods, increased exercise and decreased screen time — is a program of Phipps and a collaborative effort to improve the health of children in southwestern Pennsylvania. Engaging communities with an interest in and a capacity for making a difference, Let's Move Pittsburgh ultimately seeks to better understand childhood health issues, and then tackle them with a unified approach that anyone can follow to meet a common goal.
