Mt. Vernon, N.Y. resident Olivia found new motivation to take care of her own health by learning about health disparities in her community. “We know that many of us are overweight and have too much fat in our bodies,” she says. “It was interesting to learn about the reasons why Blacks and Hispanics have increasing rates of knee replacement. Now I have a better knowledge of why I’m having knee pain.” Ovidia participated in the Operation Change program at Grace Baptist Church, Mt. Vernon, N.Y. With host Dr. Rose Gonzalez.
