Dr. Columna on L.A. PBS show

Dr. Luis Columna was recently on the Spanish language Los Angeles PBS show called Los NiƱos en Su Casa to discuss the importance of providing quality physical activities in the home. The topic of the day was El movimiento (Movement) and the host of the show was Alina Rosario. One of Dr. Columna's research areas includes physical activity for migrant workers and their families, so it was a great opportunity for him to share his expertise with the public. In the link to the article, you will find some written advice on how to make fun activities for kids of all ages. The filming occured in February 2009 but the show did not air until June 2009. ¡Felicidades Dr. Columna!
