Wally the Water Dude
I'm a seven foot tall inflatable water drop mascot and I want to help you get healthy. On my website you will find lots of healthy information, products, and a list of Wally's activities.
Although I believe one person (or water drop!) can make a difference I have a good friend who is a health professional with a difference. Her name is Jane O'Brien and she is an advocate of "nude food" ie food from the ground! She believes when it comes to the food we eat it's good to think outside the box without eating out of a box!!!!! You can read her health tips and take a look at her media activities/speaking engagements section.
