For all of his work and commitment, Dr. Izard has been recognized by his peers and some of the most respected organizations in Milwaukee:

2008 Milwaukee Magazine names him “One of the Next Generation who will lead the city into the future.”
2012 Greater Milwaukee Foundation Doug Jansen Emerging Leadership Award

His recommendation for our readers is to eat healthy and increase physical activity.

Dr. Izard says, "Food choices are important. You can still enjoy some of your snacks but remember that whatever goes in must come off. If you eat more, then you need to increase your steps.

Wear a pedometer and count your daily steps. The goal is to increase your number of steps. Increase 1,000 steps from your average every week until you get to 10,000 steps."

It helps to have a workout buddy to have accountability. Find one.

Your health insurance may cover the cost of a pedometer. If not, we will be offering some. Check back soon.
