TEDxSanAntonio - Roberto Trevino - Preventing Diabetes Targeting High Risk Children

Speaker: Robert Trevi?o, M.D. Title of talk: Preventing Diabetes: Targeting High-Risk Children Living in Poverty About this talk: Did you know that infant taste buds can be influenced during gestation by the diet of the mother? As a result, children can be programmed to like healthy foods, like broccoli, before they're even born. Dr. Trevi?o cites this fact and others to prove that conquering diabetes doesn't have to be about expensive drugs, but about simple, teachable everyday habits. About Robert Trevi?o: A primary care physician, Trevi?o works in the poor and underserved areas of San Antonio. He is the director of the Social and Health Research Center and the founder of Bienestar — a program which combats early-age obesity and type 2 diabetes using school-based, preventative health programs.
