Since August of 2009, the Real Medicine Foundation has partnered with Health Net to provide the Nutrition/Obesity Prevention Class once per month. The monthly 1-hour program is an interactive course for mothers concerned with obesity. Target topics include diet, nutrition, vitamins, and weight-loss. The instructor is Andy Padilla, pictured below, a dynamic instructor with a passion for education.
