FLOTUS Michelle Obama helped launch the CBC Foundation’s alumni series as part of the Annual Legislative Conference.  Last Wednesday, Mrs. Obama participated in the first of a three session series, “The ABC’s of Healthy Student Learning: Addressing Disparities in Academic Achievement and Health.”

In her address, the First Lady continued to promote her “Let’s Move” health initiative to end childhood obesity.  Mrs. Obama delivered alarming statistics that,  “Nearly 40% of African American kids are overweight or obese. Nearly 1 in 2; that is half of our children will develop diabetes at some point in their lives.”
