President Obama went out Friday for a lunch that doubled as a photo opportunity for his new health care law.

The president dined with five young people who are trying to persuade others to enroll in health care market places.

From the White House:

"The President is having lunch with five young people at The Coupe restaurant in the Columbia Heights section of Washington, DC, who are spearheading creative outreach efforts to connect with and help enroll young consumers through the Marketplaces or are interested in getting more involved with these efforts.

"The President wanted to hear directly from young people about their experiences spreading the word about the importance of signing up for quality, affordable health insurance and thank them for their efforts.

"Two of the individuals at today's lunch also participated at the Youth Summit the White House hosted in early December that was designed to help mobilize young leaders and influencers interested in doing health care outreach and enrollment efforts in their communities."
