First Lady to visit Atlanta for health campaign

ATLANTA (AP) - First lady Michelle Obama is coming to Atlanta to celebrate the first anniversary of her campaign to reduce childhood obesity.

Obama will visit Burgess-Peterson Academy, a public elementary school, Wednesday afternoon to tout the school's work on promoting healthy eating. She also will give a speech at North Point Community Church in Alpharetta just north of the city about the work of her "Let's Move!" campaign.

In the past year, Obama has addressed governors, mayors, school groups, food makers and other constituencies, urging them to build more bike paths and playgrounds, to serve healthier school lunches and to make and sell healthier food. She's even held an exercise clinic with kids on the White House South Lawn.
