Center for Aging and Policy Studies“Addressing Obesity and Hypertension in Refugees through Culturally Relevant Meal Interventions”
This project looks at obesity and hypertension in diaspora populations and works with African immigrants on post-immigration diets to introduce healthy adaptations while preserving culinary heritage. The goal is to assess whether healthier eating can reduce health issues and boost labor force participation, generating improved socioeconomic status.
