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!
