The first lady unveiled "Be Best" at the White House in May, saying it will focus on children's well-being, social media use and opioid abuse.
She was hospitalized soon after the announcement following surgery to treat a kidney condition and spent several weeks out of the public eye recuperating before resuming a public schedule.
