ANNAPOLIS, Md. (September 7, 2010) – Tomorrow afternoon, Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown will discuss the ‘Healthiest Maryland’ initiative with Montgomery County business leaders in Rockville and hold a press conference to announce expanded participation in the program. Lt. Governor Brown will be joined by leaders from Marriott International, Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic and the City of Rockville – who have already agreed to join the initiative – as well as other business leaders from across the county.
Healthiest Maryland was launched in May and promotes healthy lifestyle practices in the workplace. With over 85 employers who have joined ‘Healthiest Maryland,’ the State has surpassed its initial goal to engage 75 businesses by December 2010 and is well on its way to include 50,000 Marylanders in the initiative.
Immediately following the 1:00 lunch meeting at the Chamber of Commerce, Brown will lead business owners on a short ‘health walk’ to Rockville Town Square where he will hold a press conference announcing new members of the initiative.
