Healthy America: Wellness Where We Live, Work and Learn

In September, 2005, Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee launched Healthy America, a year-long initiative that marks his tenure as Chair of the National Governor’s Association.

Through Healthy America, Governor Huckabee brings together public and private sector organizations to help Americans live happier, healthier lives. Specifically, the initiative focuses on what can be done at home, at work, and in schools to make healthier choices easier choices.

Governor Huckabee is a remarkable role model. He lived the sedentary, overweight life that he is trying to combat. He was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and was told by his doctor that he needed to lose weight or suffer the consequences of life with the disease. Fortunately, Governor Huckabee chose to change his lifestyle and almost two years after his diabetes diagnoses, he was 110 pounds lighter. He is now a two-time marathon runner, proving that individuals are capable of making lifestyle alterations to improve health and their quality of life.
