Kool Herc and Queen Pep join Get Healthy Hip Hop

I like this

The Positive Community joined with True School University to initiate an awareness campaign focused on educating the aging Hip Hop generation to get healthy.  Organizer Jah Jah Shakur also spoke about the necessity of preventive care provided by the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and healthcare insurance in general. The program was just the start to a state-wide campaign called Get Healthy New Jersey aimed at increasing the health education of NJ citizens.
