At the CSDE seminar on April 16th, CSDE Affiliate Dr. Amanda Fretts will present “Better Understanding Diet & Cardio-Metabolic Health in American Indians”. CSDE Affiliate Anjum Hajat will moderate the discussion. Dr. Fretts will discuss major findings from the Strong Heart Study—the largest and longest on-going cohort study of cardiovascular health among American Indians in the United States. She will also describe an on-going clinical trial designed to test the effect of a cooking and nutrition intervention on diet quality and glycemic control in American Indian adults with Type 2 diabetes who reside in a rural reservation community. Dr. Fretts is an Associate Professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Washington. Her research interests include nutrition, physical activity, fatty acids, diabetes, and American Indian health.
