A Healthy and Fit Nation

First Lady Michelle Obama, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and Surgeon General Regina Benjamin joined together to help Americans lead healthier lives through better nutrition, regular physical activity, and improving communities to support healthy choices.

"Americans will be more likely to change their behavior if they have a meaningful reward--something more than just reaching a certain weight or dress size. The real reward is invigorating, energizing, joyous health. It is a level of health that allows people to embrace each day and live their lives to the fullest without disease or disability."

- Surgeon General Regina M. Benjamin, M.D., M.B.A.
