Meeting acting U.S. Surgeon General, Boris Lushniak

2014-06-18 12.21.01-1Last Wednesday, I had the pleasure of attending a forum at the Washington Post called, Health Beyond Health Care. This was right in the Chunky and Friends’ wheelhouse because our goal is preventative health care by promoting healthy habits in children.  I had the opportunity to introduce Chunky and Friends to many in attendance including acting US Surgeon General Rear Adm. Boris Lushniak.  Dr. Lushniak was very excited about Chunky and Friends and saw it as a great idea, I believe he saw the impact that it could have on children.  I am grateful he took the time to speak to me and hear my vision for Chunky and Friends.

All of the speakers were extremely insightful and it’s always wonderful to hear the success people are having in instilling healthy habits in their communities.

Here is a link with clips from the forum:
