Filipinos Take it to Heart: A How-to Guide for Bringing Heart Health to Your Community
Julie Tu (ed); Barbara Alving (fr)
Filipinos are the third largest Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) subgroup in the U.S., & the least studied. Many engage in unhealthy behaviors, such as eating foods high in salt & sodium, saturated fat & cholesterol, not exercising, & smoking. This puts them at higher risk for developing heart disease, which may go undetected or untreated. One out of three Filipinos die from heart disease, & Filipinos have the highest rates of hypertension of all AAPI subgroups. This “How-To” guide outlines the steps that can be taken to ensure the implementation of successful awareness-raising & health-promoting activities to prevent & control cardiovascular risk factors & stimulate adoption of positive health behaviors.
