Ping ZouPing Zou
is a doctoral student at the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing, University of Toronto. Her research is a randomized, controlled trial to test the feasibility and potential effects of the Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension for Chinese Canadians (DASH-CC) in a community setting to decrease blood pressure, reduce diabetes risk, and enhance health-related quality of life in Chinese Canadians. Guided by Leininger’s Transcultural nursing theory, this DASH-CC intervention incorporates food therapy of Traditional Chinese Medicine with anti-hypertensive dietary evidence from current health sciences. This study will contribute to scientific evidence of culturally sensitive care and guide design of dietary educational interventions for minority populations in community settings.
