Michelle Obama came to campus on Friday (sort of)! See video of her touring the Fresh Grocer supermarket, adjacent to Temple’s campus (start at 1:30.)

The First Lady also visited Fairhills Elementary, to talk about the childhood obesity epidemic to about 200 invited guests.  Fairhills has been part of a Temple-led study to see how incorporating healthy foods into the schools can help curb childhood obesity.  Obama called the study “extrordinary and revolutionary.”

Read more about her visit, including an interview with Gary Foster, Temple University’s nationally recognized obesity researcher, at our newsroom.
