CBC Focuses on Health Disparities for African-Americans

Disproportional rates of obesity, heart disease and hypertension for African-Americans were among the topics addressed during last week's Congressional Black Caucus annual meeting. Academy representatives participated in discussions with top leaders that included creating healthier lifestyles through food and nutrition in the African-American community.

Despite the role of diet in treating hypertension, a recent study found that African-Americans may be less likely to adopt dietary changes compared to other groups. RDs and health providers should look for creative strategies to address disparities for diverse populations.

The Academy's National Organization of Blacks in Dietetics and Nutrition member interest group has more information about health disparities.
