Dr. Judy Palfrey Named as Head of Let's Move Campaign Initiated by Michelle Obama


Dr. Judy Palfrey has been named to head First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign! See the link at: http://www.letsmove.gov/blog/2011/09/02/dr-judith-palfrey-will-lead-lets-move.  

 

This is very exciting for all children and families but especially because Dr. Palfrey will work to make sure that CYSHCN will be well included in this initiative.

 

In Dr. Palfrey’s roles at Children’s Hospital, Boston she headed many research projects to benefit children with special needs, including multidisciplinary approaches to providing care and Project School Care for children who are technology-assisted. She also worked on many aspects of Bright Futures, heading Bright Futures in Practice, to move concepts to families, communities, and other practitioners.

 

She is the mother of three and immediate past president of the American Academy of Pediatrics where she played a key role on issues relating to children’s health and overall well-being.
