Eight years ago, using a garden shovel as her lightening rod, First Lady Michelle Obama urged the nation to get serious about eating, exercising and educating its way to better health.

Kojo explores the successes and setbacks in this citywide movement, and finds out how momentum will continue in a post-Obama era.
