Born in New York and raised on the west coast of California. Like so many of us, Dr. Honrubia moved to the Valley in search of greater opportunity and, in doing so, brought hope and growth to an underserved region. Dr. Honrubia came at a time when there was limited availability of otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) specialists in the area, bringing a certain level of prestige to the Valley’s medical system by earning his degrees through the University of California system and doing his internships at Northwestern University and at Columbus Hospital, both in Chicago, Illinois. He was also the first otolaryngologist to offer advanced endoscopic sinus surgery in the Valley.

Childhood weight plays a major role in future obesity, according to a study of more than 7,700 kindergartners. Researchers measured the height and weight of a cohort of children seven times during the course of nine years and found that those who were overweight in kindergarten were four times as likely as normal-weight peers to become obese by age 14. In fact, nearly half of all cases of obesity observed between kindergarten and eighth grade occurred in children who were overweight at age five. This major study suggests that efforts to curb childhood obesity need to start before children enter school.
