I am lucky enough to have a job at a great hospital called White Memorial Medical Center where I teach obesity prevention and healthy lifestyle choices to kids ages 5-12 and their parents. It is a wonderful, interactive program filled with fun activities and great lessons. It makes me feel like I am doing something good and of value to the community.
Recently, the local news ABC7, did a story about a sweet young boy who was diagnosed with hypertension and obesity. He was a patient at White Memorial. Below is the news story. These are the kinds of kids I teach. I love the work I do. ABC7 is going to be featuring my class sometime in the near future so I will keep you posted!
