Alexander Li, New Routes Leader from Chinese Seniors Project
As a child of immigrant parents from China, I am reminded by the hardship and fortune of their transition from China to United States and where my brothers and I are the beneficiaries of their perseverance. Their life lessons have influenced my personal and professional pursuits. As a physician, I have leveraged my skills and worked with low-income and limited English populations and in particular focused on improving health and quality of care for immigrant populations.
Obesity is a major problem in United States. Part of the problem is that we have poor control with the amount of food that we eat. I believe that if people use rice bowls more to measure the amount of carbohydrates they eat, there will be a better portion control of food and less obesity.
