John Rodarte, MD, chair of the department of pediatrics, Huntington Hospital, and pediatrician at Huntington Health Physicians, was featured in the July 2018 issue of L.A. Parent Magazine.
In the article, “Make Moving a Summertime Habit that Lasts all Year,” Dr. Rodarte shares tips on how to keep children active and moving during the summer months, building positive, healthy habits that can last through the year.
He shares: “Activity doesn’t have to be a sport. It can be anything that’s getting them (children) moving and getting their hearts beating and making them sweat a little bit,” Rodarte says. “Going to the beach can be a pretty active thing, especially if you’re boogie boarding or just running along the beach and throwing a ball.”
