About Partnership for a Healthier America
The Partnership for a Healthier America 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 meaningful
commitments and develop strategies to end . 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,
