Abstract:

This article for The National Black Nurses Association (NBNA) identifies how diet is a major contributing factor in many chronic diseases and conditions, including those disproportionately affecting minority populations. The National Institutes of Health’s new strategic plan to accelerate nutrition research creates an opportunity to advocate for adequate minority enrollment in NIH clinical trials targeting nutrition.
