I encourage you to visit my website www.billfrist.com/obesity and submit your ideas and share your thoughts on how we can fight obesity together. I also encourage you to come back and visit the site often, as we will share some of the best ideas on this page and my blog, hopefully creating a dialogue that will produce meaningful and long-lasting solutions. Working together, we can and will fight this growing problem and eliminate it within a generation.
The Global Health work I do falls under the umbrella of my global health organization, Hope Through Healing Hands. With this group, we focus on building human capital for better health care around the world, developing sustainability, and promoting health as a currency for peace.
We encourage philanthropy, and we have raised monies in the past to give to various beneficiaries, including Save the Children, Africare, Samaritan’s Purse, and Haiti Relief efforts, for HIV/AIDS, global disease, and emergency relief, to name a few.
SCORE is working to help improve Tennessee’s schools to be first tin the Southeast in five years. You can join by engaging in local efforts in your school district and by talking with and working with your local elected officials and school boards to help implement SCORE’s recommendations in its Final Report, released in the Fall of 2009. By demanding excellence in your community, together we are helping improve schools across the state. For more information, please visit the TN SCORE website at www.tnscore.org.
