Abstract

Improving Health of Diverse Populations

The issue for July 2018 mainly focuses on health of underserved populations in the United States (US), except three articles - one from Vietnam, one from the United Kingdom (UK), and the other from Poland. Three of the articles from the US - “Physical Activity Education for Adults with Refugee Background in the United States” “Targeting Diet and Physical Activity: Reaching Homeless Adults through Customized Interventions,” and “Prevalence of Sarcopenia and Sarcopenic Obesity Vary with Race/Ethnicity and Advancing Age” studied lifestyle-related issues among diverse populations. Physical activity is very important to control weight and reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. One of the negative health consequences from physical inactivity is obesity.
