Partnership for a Healthier America

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: January 9, 2012, 3:55 PM

Description

The Partnership for a Healthier America is an independent, nonpartisan organization focusing on reducing the nation's childhood obesity prevalence by facilitating meaningful action from the private sector, foundations, thought leaders, media, and communities to improve children's health. The partnership aims to support the Let's Move! goals that have been set by First Lady Michelle Obama, who serves as Honorary Chairperson of the Partnership. Specifically, the Partnership will:

  • Broker meaningful commitments among recognized, national leaders in the private, public, and non-profit sectors;
  • Measure commitments against clear and transparent targets;
  • Convene members annually; and
  • Affirm, align, and announce efforts and outcomes resulting from negotiated commitments aimed at raising a healthier generation of American children.

The Partnership concentrates on mobilizing leadership from across sectors and at every level to make a commitment that can have a significant impact on reducing childhood obesity. Organizations that make commitments can become members of the Partnership receiving benefits and guidance, including assistance with tracking and evaluation processes.

To underscore the organization's nonpartisan nature, former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and Newark Mayor Cory Booker are the Partnership's honorary vice chairs. Their role is to advise the board on strategic matters and raise awareness to build momentum for Partnership efforts.
