CNAY Attends Let’s Move! in Indian Country Event with First Lady Michelle Obama

American Indian and Alaska Native children are affected by childhood obesity at some of the highest rates in the country. Let’s Move! in Indian Country (LMIC), a subprogram of an initiative launched by First Lady Michelle Obama, seeks to end childhood obesity in a generation. LMIC uses comprehensive strategies that engage Tribal governments, Urban Indian Centers, private businesses, youth leaders, and the non-profit sector with the goal of ending childhood obesity in a generation.

First Lady Michelle Obama offered remarks in which she thanked partners for their dedication at both the community and national levels.
