Share Obesity Risk Reduction Behaviors among Chinese Americans

Event Details

Obesity is a global epidemic affecting all populations including Chinese Americans. A survey research was conducted by Dr. Doreen Liou and Dr. Kathleen Bauer to uncover the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors related to obesity risk reduction in Chinese Americans. Obesity risk reduction behaviors and psychosocial variables derived from the Theory of Planned Behavior and Health Belief Model were measured along with acculturation factors. The researchers will highlight the role of intention, self-efficacy, and perceptions in relation to health behaviors adopted to reduce obesity risk.  Individuals working with Chinese Americans need to approach weight reduction interventions with relevant tailoring of health messages.
