Champions of ChangeOn Tuesday September, 10th 2013, I was honored to be invited to the White House for the Champions of Change in Prevention and Public Health.   The White House honors eight leaders helping communities focus on prevention and public health by tackling everything from childhood obesity, reducing health disparities, fighting healthcare acquired infections, to taking various innovative steps to move us towards a healthier America – based on wellness and prevention, rather than sickness and disease.

I feel honored to be among the reported 900 people across the US nominated for this honor and one of only about 125 who were able to participate in the event at the White House.   Congratulations to the 8 who were selected for their good work within their communities.
