First Lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to join NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy in Louisiana next week to promote her "Let's Move!" campaign against childhood obesity.

Obama's Sept. 8 visit to Brock Elementary School in Slidell will be held on the eve of the NFL's first game of the regular season, when the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints host the Minnesota Vikings at the Superdome.

The White House says the First Lady will highlight steps schools and communities can take to combat childhood obesity.
