2008 'Champions of Health' Award Winners Announced
Date:9/3/2008

Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett wins top honor

TULSA, Okla., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mick Cornett, mayor of Oklahoma City, has been named Public Service Health Champion and recipient of the 2008 Rodney L. Huey, M.D., Memorial Champion of Oklahoma Health award, the highest honor of the Champions of Health awards. This fifth-annual awards program recognizes outstanding organizations and individuals dedicated to improving the health of Oklahomans.

On Dec. 31, 2007, Cornett announced the launch of the "This City is Going on a Diet" campaign, with the goal of losing one million pounds as a community in an effort to create a healthier city. Cornett has led by example, losing 42 pounds since April 2007.

An interactive Web site, http://www.thiscityisgoingonadiet.com, including helpful resources and links, tools, recipes and health-related events was launched, allowing participants to confidentially track their weight loss progress and calculate their body mass index (BMI). More than 20,000 residents have gone online and signed up to participate, collectively losing more than 141,000 pounds.

Cornett has brought national attention to this effort. He appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show in January and spoke to the national mayor's conference in June. Other major cities have been inspired to look at launching similar initiatives.

The Rodney L. Huey, M.D., Memorial Champion of Oklahoma Health award will be accepted at the 2008 Champions of Health Awards, 6 p.m., Sept. 29 at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. The event features former U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich as keynote speaker and 2005 Champion of Oklahoma Health Dr. J. Mark Osborn as emcee.

Reservations to the Champions of Health awards banquet are available for $30 each and may be purchased through Friday, Sept. 19 by calling 1-866-876-4376. MasterCard and
