As a part of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative Newark’s Mayor Cory Booker launched Let’s Move! Newark: Our Power (LM!NOP). The program had an event created by Behavioral Health & Fitness Expert Jeff Halevy where the newly slimmed down Fat Joe came to speak to students about health and fitness.
