African American Health
Exercise & African americans
I am a fitness professional from Ca. now living in Ohio. I have found that Ohio is 5th in the nation for lack of exercise. African Americans are in the top 5% of inactivity nationwide. Can you help me more info on this topic???
I recommend a wonderful book written by Barbara M. Dixon, RD, LDN, titled `Good Health for African Americans`. It is a comprehensive book dedicated to improving the health of African Americans. The ISBN # is 0-517-88302-3. Otherwise, any health promotion literature search should provide you with current research in this area.
