Kass to Kick Off Childhood Obesity Conference



Assistant White House chef Sam Kass, who has played a key role in First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign, is scheduled to speak on the opening day of the 6th Biennial Childhood Obesity Conference on June 28.
Organizers tell The Inside Track that it isn’t clear what Kass will discuss, but it’s safe to say he’ll bring up some of his work with the Let’s Move! campaign. Along with his chef duties, Kass also serves as a senior adviser for Healthy Policy Initiatives at the White House, and frequently appears at meetings and conferences to discuss the Obama Administration’s efforts to combat childhood obesity and improve the nation’s food system.
While Kass brings a bit of celebrity to the conference, we’d be remiss not to put in a plug for Marty, who also will be a keynote speaker, advising conference goers on the world of social media.
