As a pediatrician, I am passionate about helping to educate and empowering children and their families to embrace a healthy lifestyle. This ranges from making healthy meal/snack decisions, incorporating exercise/physical activity and making time for relaxation techniques such as meditation/breathing/yoga. I would love to do both a spoken lecture as well as interactive teaching component including teaching children how to read labels, make healthy snacks, and the importance of taking care of our bodies.
