THE PARTNERSHIP FOR A HEALTHIER AMERICA
America is in the midst of a public health crisis: one in three children is overweight. Rising rates of obesity in children and young adults are fueling increases in diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic conditions. This health crisis undermines academic performance, workplace productivity, military readiness, and diminished quality of life. PHA's goal is to ensure all children -- especially those disproportionately affected -- will live healthier lives, growing up to be adults free from obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other chronic conditions through leveraging the power of the private sector to bring lasting, systemic changes that improve the food supply and increase physical activity.

Founded in 2010 in conjunction with – but independent from – Let’s Move!, PHA is a nonpartisan, nonprofit that is led by some of the nation’s most respected health and childhood obesity advocates. Supporting our effort is our honorary chair Former First Lady Michelle Obama, alongside our honorary vice-chairmen The Honorable William H. Frist, MD, and US Senator Cory A. Booker.
