JOAG OHWPS Announces Let's Move! Program
The First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama, has challenged Americans to promote physical fitness and good nutrition habits in our youth. As officers in the U.S. Public Health Service, it is important that we serve as leaders in our communities to respond to this challenge. The OHWPS would like to announce a very exciting opportunity for JOAG officers across the country to participate in the national Let’s Move! campaign. On behalf of JOAG, the OHWPS has created a Let’s Move! volunteer program, which offers JOAG members the chance to lead projects that promote the ideals of Let’s Move! in their very own hometowns.
