Our Say No to Soda Pop campaign has officially begun. The DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital family came together on Wednesday, Oct. 31 to take the pledge and kick-start our health.
I was pleasantly surprised and very proud to see the incredible turnout at the event. It brought tears to my eyes to see all of our partners front and center. It was standing-room only and the energy was palpable. Especially the children – this is all about the kids and ensuring that they have the knowledge and the tools to live long and healthy lives. Everyone rallied, and we’re going to continue to rally for the entire month of November.
I want to thank Thomas Stallworth III, Edith Killins, Irma Clark-Coleman, André Spivey, the students at Ben Carson High School and Cornerstone Health High School, Detroit Public Schools Office of School Nutrition, Whole Foods, DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital, Elder Law of Michigan, the Rev. Horace Sheffield, The Water Station, Spike Life Communities and the Metro Detroit National Black Child Development, and everyone at DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital who helped us make this campaign a success.
I wish all of you who have taken the pledge much success this month, and I encourage you to reflect upon and share your progress. Post your comments here.
