Dr. Suzy Rizi Mokhtari spoke last month at Choices Expo press conference. Speaking as an Urban Health Expert on the topic of obesity, Dr. Mokhtari spoke passionately on the issue of childhood obesity and how it affects communities like the ones Harbor-UCLA Pediatrics advocates for.
Choices Expo is a schools and health exposition that had its first event in the weekend of October 11. Choices Expo seeks to help members of the community find resources and partners to overcome childhood obesity.
Dr. Mokhtari credits her time in Child Advocacy rotation with Dr. Noble in her intern year. "I got to step outside of the clinical setting and see that members of the community were interested in healthy lifestyles and interventions that were taking place outside of Harbor-UCLA."
