The human body was not designed to stoop low to the ground for eight or more hours a day. Here's what happens to it.

About Dr. Flavio Cornejo, farmworker physician:
Flavio is an associate chief medical officer for Salud Para La Gente, a federally designated community health clinic, and participates in the National Health Service Corps. The son of Mexican farmworkers, he practices full-scope family medicine, mostly working with under-served low-income communities, including migrant farmworkers in the Pajaro Valley. He has a special interest in diabetes, as well as depression and anxiety, especially when looked at from an evolutionary perspective.

This talk is part of Session One: Meet for TEDxFruitvale, which was held on October 14, 2011 at Mills College in Oakland, CA. The conference's theme was Harvesting Change, and it focused on farmworkers, labor and other social justice movements, and fair labor practices in business. http://www.tedxfruitvale.org/

About TEDx, x = independently organized event:

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
