US Mayors Take Action to Promote Health and Wellness

At its 80th Annual Meeting last week in Orlando, FL, the U.S. Conference of Mayors endorsed SEIU-UHW's Let's Get Healthy California campaign, adopting a resolution to replicate the Let's Get Healthy Task Force in other cities throughout the U.S.

The task force was conceived and promoted by SEIU-UHW and The California Endowment.

Specifically, the Mayors' resolution called for "Endorsing efforts to replicate in other cities initiatives modeled after the Let's Get Healthy California Task Force, which will develop a 10-year plan for improving the health of Californians through a sustained effort to promote prevention and wellness strategies and reduce the burden of chronic disease that is crippling local and state healthcare systems."
