First Lady Michelle Obama has led the way in public service as an advocate for children's health and - hula hooping? This past week at the Healthy Kids Fair the First Lady was caught on the lawn of the White House doing 142 rotations. Impressive to say the least! Obama is dedicated to health and to encouraging people to serve their communities and their neighbors. GENaustin's Girls Now! Conference follows her lead.

On Saturday, November 14, 2009, at the Ann Richards School, hundreds of Central Texas girls will be hula hooping like the First Lady. Joining them will be hundreds of volunteers, speakers and agencies, all coming together to discuss how these young women can grow into healthy, successful, and happy young adults. Over 100 workshops around the issues of Bullying, Body Image and Being a Girl will be offered. Interactive workshop providers like Hoopcircle and Sun Dragon will discuss hard-hitting topics with hands on sessions that tie yoga techniques and hooping to raising one's health and wellness.
