Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) is proud to be the Official Hospital of The PGA of America. As the exclusive supporting sponsor of PGA's 'Let's Move on Course!' program, HSS is encouraging golfers and golf fans to walk the course and keep track of their steps as a way to enhance a healthy lifestyle. 'Let's Move on Course!' reflects The PGA of America's ongoing support of First Lady Michelle Obama's 'Let's Move!' campaign, which strives to combat obesity through healthy decisions and physical activity. In 2012, HSS will hand out 60,000 branded pedometers to fans at the Senior PGA Championship, the PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup.
