Heather Aguirre, DO
According to the 2015 - 2020 Dietary Guidelines report, 50% of American adults have one or more preventable chronic diseases, many that are related to poor quality eating patterns and physical inactivity. Approximately two-thirds of adults and nearly one-third of children and youths are overweight and obese. Obesity is one of the biggest threats to health and longevity.
