Larry has had an interest in health since an early age, when he began to influence members of his family to quit smoking, lose weight, and live a more active lifestyle. It is his hope that by becoming a doctor he will have a greater range of influence to help others live a healthier lifestyle. Larry is a leader in his community, sacrificing much of his personal time for his scholastic and extracurricular pursuits. He has served at his school as an AVID tutor for two years, is founder and head of the M.U.S.I.C. club, and is an ABC Unified School District Distinguished Scholar.
