Cory Booker, Bill Frist To Lead FLOTUS Obesity Initiative

“First Lady Michelle Obama announced today that former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, MD, Republican, and Newark wunderkind mayor Cory Booker, a Democrat (who, by the way, is celebrating his city's first murder-free month in ages), will be vice chairs of the government's new Partnership for a Healthy America, her anti-child obesity program. Both are inspired choices; Frist is a heart surgeon and knows the medical issues cold. Booker is a mayor who likes to experiment and has a sophisticated understanding of the linkages between the environment, public health and childhood obesity.”
