Los Cerritos Community News Cares: Time to “ACTIVATE” a new generation of “healthy” eaters
(Note: This is part of an ongoing series by Los Cerritos Community News that addresses the epidemic of childhood obesity here in our community.)
Alexander Khananashvili is a man on a mission.
The Tri-Cities Regional Medical Center Wellness Program Coordinator is embarking on a new initiative that takes direct aim at childhood obesity that has spiraled out of control in Hawaiian Gardens.
The Russian born Khananashvili is creating a new community wide effort on behalf of Tri-Cities Medical whose sole mission is to “save our kids from dying” from living “unhealthy lifestyles.”
He points to data published by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health in September of 2011 that lists the childhood obesity rate at 23 percent, a figure that experts call “an emergency medical epidemic” in America’s largest county.
