The Family I have chosen is of Hispanic origin what they call a nuclear family type, married couple with 2 children. Father JG age of 35 and mother age MG of 32. Older son LG is 7 years old and younger one JG is 5 years old. Husband younger brother MG also resides at home and is also a Mexican born resident. Religion preference is Catholic. Spanish is primary language in the household. Father is a self-employed gardener since his been in the states for about 10 years and mother is a stay at home mom and has never worked. Husband expresses interest in soccer and baseball but does not participate in sports or other forms of hobbies, enjoys spending time with friends and family. Both children express interest in soccer and video games.

Their goal is simple to be free of any disease and chronic condition as long as possible.
