The Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum is partnering with Children’s National Health System and the Washington Mystics (Monumental Sports) to offer a health and wellness program to District youth participating in the Museum Academy Program (MAP).

Children’s National will bring fun, interactive health and wellness sessions that will focus on achieving optimal health. ┬áCommunity leaders like DC council member LaRuby May (who took over former Mayor Marion Barry’s seat), sports personalities, and Children’s National physicians will encourage children in this challenge.
