Speaker: Luis Rodriguez, RD
Please join us at the May 8 class by Luis Rodriguez, RD, our expert clinical dietitian at UCSF specializing in childhood obesity.
According to Prof. Laura Schmidt, of factors that contribute to our longevity on average: Access to healthcare contributes 10%, genetics 20%, environmental 20%, and our own health behaviors 50%. In other words, what we eat and do, and how much we exercise contribute significantly to our health, 5 more times than what our healthcare systems can offer. We are the single most important factor responsible for our own health and longevity. In this upcoming class, Mr. Rodriguez will assist us to build healthy eating habits by bringing us the important nutritional information that we need to know to keep ourselves and our family healthy and fit.
This lecture is part of the bilingual (English/Cantonese) “X-Sugar Pandemic Alert" community lecture series. It is free of charge and brings together faculty experts from UCSF to raise our awareness on how excess sugar consumption can compromise our health and cause many chronic health issues, with diabetes and heart disease in the lead.
