First Lady to visit South Florida, other states on anniversary of Let’s Move campaign to fight childhood obesityby Ana Valdes | February 3rd, 2012
First Lady Michelle Obama will return to Florida next week, as she tours Homestead and the Orlando area to celebrate the anniversary of her campaign to fight childhood obesity, Let’s Move.
Obama will participate in a town hall meeting Friday afternoon in Homestead, where she will answer questions from local parents about better eating habits. The town-hall meeting is sponsored by WebMD.
Later that day, Obama will travel to Central Florida, where she plans to have dinner with a family who has made changes to become healthier.
The First Lady is scheduled to visit the Walt Disney World Resort’s ESPN Wide World of Sports on Saturday to promote exercise for children. Her tour also includes stops in Iowa, Arkansas and Texas.
Last month, Obama visited Palm Beach County as she wrapped up a day-long tour of the state asking voters to support her husband in his re-election campaign.
President Obama was also at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in January, where he announced that his administration is working to increase international tourism, including processing more visas from China and Brazil.
