Ann Albright, PhD, RD
(From the Foreword)

Type 2 diabetes and its principal risk factor, obesity, have emerged as twin epidemics in communities of color. This book investigates the epidemiology of diabetes in these minority communities, arguing that the determinants of diabetes include not only personal choices, but also broader social and contextual factors, such as community racism, residential segregation, and cultural patterns.

This book includes in-depth analyses of many community-based interventions which serve African-American, Hispanic/Latino American, Asian American, and Native American populations. The author also provides suggestions for community-based initiatives to reduce the "obesogenic" environment many minorities live in.

Key features:

    Includes effective intervention approaches for prevention and control of diabetes in racial and ethnic populations

    Explores the influence of institutionalized racism and residential segregation on the emergence of diabetes and obesity

    Presents extensive case studies detailing the experiences, challenges, and breakthroughs of various community health initiatives and programs

This book will serve as an important resource for professors, students, community leaders, policymakers, health practitioners, and anyone interested in joining the movement to eliminate health disparities and achieve health equity.

Descrizione libro Springer Publishing Co Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Diabetes is the only major disease with a death rate that is still rising. Minority populations are particularly at risk. This book combines a social, cultural, and historical analysis of the disproportionate burden of type 2 diabetes in communities of color across the U.S. with a comprehensive epidemiological overview. This innovative book reframes the traditional biomedical view of diabetes and its principle risk factor - obesity - from a focus on the body, personal choices, and the clinical manifestations of diabetes to an examination of the social environment. It emphasizes the importance of community-based approaches to healthy eating, exercise, and reducing the obesogenic environment in which many minorities live. This book offers the first comprehensive overview of social determinants of the disparity in diabetes prevalence in communities of color across the U.S. It provides an extensive, systematic review of the diabetes literature. It catalogues evidence-based and promising community models, interventions and policies that are scalable. It presents lessons learned from successful diabetes prevention and control programs.
