About The Partnership for a Healthier America
The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) is devoted to working with
the private sector to ensure the health of our nation's youth by solving
the childhood obesity crisis. In 2010, PHA was created in conjunction
with - but independent from - First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move!
effort. PHA is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that is led by some
of the nation's most respected health and childhood obesity experts. PHA
brings together public, private and nonprofit leaders to broker

Most important, PHA ensures that commitments made are commitments kept
by working with unbiased third parties to monitor and publicly report on
the progress our partners are making. For more information about PHA,
