Saruna Ghimire, Lawrence Sagadraca, Lung-Chang Chien, and Francisco Sy (all Environmental and Occupational Health), along with alumnus Prescott Cheong, '18 Master of Public Health, co-authored a scientific article published in the Health Equity journal last week. They conducted a cross-sectional study among Filipino American adults residing in the greater Las Vegas area. The results showed a high self-reported prevalence of hypertension, high cholesterol, and diabetes among this minority population in Las Vegas. The findings of this study will be used to develop future interventions for the Filipino American community in Las Vegas. Ghimire and Sagadraca are graduate students.
