"Hi, my name is Jeremy. I'm part of the Health Education team here at Palo Alto Medical Foundation, and I'm a 5210 Healthy Hero. Today I'm getting ready to go for a bike ride. There are a few things that I always take with me: my helmet, the best sports drink, water, and tasty fruits like this. I carry fruits instead of energy bars for the long lasting energy they give us, along with the vitamins that help to keep us healthy. How do you fuel for success?"
"Hi, I'm Dr. Paul Protter. I'm a PAMF pediatrician and a 5210 Healthy Hero. I like to bike to work and go dancing. What do you like to do?"
"Hi, I'm Dr. Garona. I'm a pediatrician at PAMF, and I am a 5210 Healthy Hero. To get my 1 hour of daily physical activity, I like to play soccer. You can do it, too. It's fun, please join me!"
"Hi, I'm Judy Farnsworth. I'm a dietitian at Palo Alto Medical Foundation, and I'm a 5210 Healthy Hero. Instead of drinking a sugary beverage, I like to add mint to my water. What do you like to do?"
