As a federal advisory committee, the Council aims to promote healthy, accessible eating and physical activity for all Americans, regardless of background or ability.

I’m excited to collaborate with such a dynamic and accomplished group to promote the importance of nutrition, food, and exercise on health.”
“The Good Measures team is inspired by Stefany’s appointment to the President’s Council,” said Donna K. Lencki, Chief Executive Officer of Good Measures. “She brings valuable experience, energy, and a passion for dismantling barriers and bridging gaps to help all people realize the benefits of nutrition and exercise.”
