Workshop presenter Henry Duran said “I am passionate about nutrition and health education, as I grew up very overweight. Through educating myself in nutrition and other healthy lifestyle changes, I lost about 50 lbs. I have been physically fit and at a lean weight for many years. I was raised in San Bernardino, graduated from UCR in 2011 and relocated to Oakland, CA. I am a former Health Education Specialist with SBCUSD. My experience includes service with Community HealthCorps in the San Francisco East Bay. It was in this community clinic that I gained practice in a variety of quality health education programs, including one-on-one counseling with patients regarding nutrition, weight-loss, and diabetes. I am pursuing medical school so I can improve the health and well-being of my community as a physician. Currently, I am completing my pre-medical coursework, substitute teach (SBCUSD) and volunteer in community health in SB.”
