A Special Topic Conference on Immigration, Acculturation and Hypertension Tel Aviv, July 1, 2019
Satellite of the Annual Meeting of the European Society of Hypertension 2019, Milan
The process of acculturation that populations undergo as they move from small, rural, agricultural economies to industrialized towns and cities takes a toll on health and well-being.
The Results Include:
Increased stress, hypertension, obesity and diabetes.
The literature documents these phenomena, and can serve as a wake-up call to what is becoming a major worldwide health issue as populations shift and peoples struggle to adapt.
Determining the healthcare needs of specific immigration groups should lead to the establishment of evidence-based guidelines for providing screening and healthcare services to immigrant populations, for the benefit of the individuals concerned, as well as the host countries.
In this conference we will try to cover most aspects related to the effects of immigration on Hypertension, Diabetes and additional risk factors.
