Healthy Living to Me Means…
By Ailene Ignacio
On Saturday, October 19, 2013, APIOPA participated in Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez’s Northeast Los Angeles Health Fair, held at Burbank Middle School in Highland Park. The fair was geared to promote the use of health services and introduce Covered California to the residents of the surrounding neighborhoods.
Though APIOPA is not yet directly servicing the Northeast Los Angeles area, our goal for this event was simple: to increase awareness of preventative methods to obesity and obesity-related diseases. So we asked folks, “What does healthy living mean to you?” The responses were overwhelming, from referencing the importance of eating well and living actively to drawing motivation from personal or familial experiences.
