44 - Jim Whitehead, Exec. VP & CEO ACSM and the United Nations

Join us today for a historic podcast with Mr. Jim Whitehead, Executive Vice President and CEO of the American College Sports Medicine, the world's largest professional organization devoted to Exercise and Sports Medicine.  Jim chats with us about the recent historic United Nations Health Summitt (only the second health summitt ever held at the U.N.) that focused on diseases caused by lifestyle issues.  A large topic at the UN Summitt was the recognition of the huge role that physical inactivity plays as an underlying cause of disease and death.  Even if you are not interested in health policy, you should tune in this podcast to find out how you can influence health in your local area and in the world!

And you have a chance for input!  Mr. Whitehead has requested that if any of our listeners have suggestions or comments, to please email him directly!  So, here's your chance to directly impact the debate on how to increase physical activity!

Also remember that you can win a free Huffines t-shirt by listening to the podcast and being the first to send us an email with the answer to the question.  And don't think you're too late to win...email us anyway!
