World Health Day

April 6, 2017

United Nations

Move to Empower was honored to coordinate an extraordinary two-part event at the United Nations in celebration of World Health Day.  


Partnering with the UN's Department of Public Information and Non-Governmental Organizations (DPI-NGO), M2E was featured as a fitness change maker at a panel discussion that highlighted the benefits of physical fitness on mental health.  


Our founder and president, Toni-Michelle Rubio, and M2E Founding Board Member Dr. Tara Tamny-Young participated alongside World Health Organization Executive Director Werner Oberbayer and Health Corps Board Member Dr. Stephen Josephson in an insightful discussion on how exercise combats depression.

Elevating the joyfulness of the day, M2E then led more than 200 participants in a boot camp work out and Zumba® Master Class.
