National Restaurant Association President and CEO Dawn Sweeney has been recognized by the Campaign to End Obesity for her work in helping guide the foodservice industry's nutrition initiatives.

Sweeney, in recognition for her efforts, received the award at a Dec. 6 awards gala at Discovery Channel Worldwide headquarters in Silver Spring, Md.

"Dawn has been an enthusiastic and engaged leader in the fight to reverse America's obesity epidemic," said Stephanie Silverman, a founding director and senior advisor to the Campaign to End Obesity. "We applaud Dawn's work encouraging and supporting restaurants' innovative efforts to provide nutritious options for their customers."

After joining the NRA in 2007, Sweeney established a healthy-living platform that allows restaurant operators to contribute to a more healthful America. In 2011, the NRA, under Sweeney's leadership, launched the Kids LiveWell initiative, a voluntary, industry-wide program that helps parents and children select healthful menu options when dining out. The program, established in collaboration with Healthy Dining's team of registered dietitians, has since grown to include national, regional and local restaurant brands representing more than 30,000 locations nationwide.

Sweeney is a charter member of Child Obesity 180; a multi-sector initiative of private, public, non-profit and academic leaders who work toward preventing childhood obesity through evidence-based initiatives. She also serves on the board of Save the Children.
