Nebraska: Mayor Beutler Announces Two Efforts to Fight Obesity

Mayor Chris Beutler announced that Lincoln has officially become a “Let’s Move City” by committing to the obesity prevention initiative launched by First Lady Michelle Obama.

“I was honored to respond to the First Lady’s call to action for Mayors and other elected officials to take a leadership role in the effort to solve the problem of obesity within a generation,” said Mayor Beutler. “It’s important that government leaders recognize the tremendous health and economic burden that obesity and its related diseases have on individuals, the health care system and our City as a whole. The goal of Let’s Move is ambitious, but we owe it to our children to do all we can to meet that goal.”
