Governor Perdue Announces Georgia Selected as Home for New National Health Museum
Date:6/18/2008

han 150 major health and medical organizations.

The NHM board, which includes corporate, association and public service leaders from the healthcare community, is chaired by former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services and President Emeritus of Morehouse School of Medicine Louis W. Sullivan, M.D. The founding chairman is the former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, M.D., who now serves as Chairman Emeritus.

"The National Health Museum is an unprecedented global enterprise that will share health-related information and experiences with hundreds of millions of people," Dr. Sullivan said. "Visitors to the National Health Museum will acquire a profound personal appreciation for the benefits of good health and find themselves at the center of their own transformative experiences."

The Coca-Cola Company, which has long been a catalyst for the revitalization of downtown Atlanta, played an instrumental role in recruiting the National Health Museum, donating $1 million in seed funding to help support the museum's development in Atlanta. The company also supports the museum's commitment to building healthy lifestyles, which dovetails with its support of nutrition education and programs that encourage and promote active living.

The National Health Museum estimates that it will attract between 1.1 million and 1.4 million annual visitors to a location in downtown Atlanta, near Centennial Olympic Park. The National Health Museum Board of Trustees is currently considering several site opportunities in this dynamic neighborhood, which is home to a variety of highly popular visitor attractions. The museum will also help Atlanta draw health-related conferences and conventions to Georgia.

"We are very enthusiastic about helping the National Health Museum locate to Atlanta, as we believe it will be a great addition to downtown's cultural and educational resources," said Muhtar Kent, President and Chief Operating Officer, The Coca-Cola Company
