ICES Research Video Series featuring ICES staff scientist Dr. Maria Chiu


A new ICES study published in the journal BMJ Open, "Temporal trends in cardiovascular disease risk factors among white, South Asian, Chinese and black groups in Ontario, Canada, 2001 to 2012: a population-based study", is the first in Canada to examine ethnic-specific cardiovascular risk factor trends over time.

The study found that in the 12-year period from 2001 to 2012, rates of diabetes doubled among South Asian men and nearly doubled among black women. And although obesity rates increased across all ethnic groups and sexes, the largest increase was observed for Chinese men, whose rate more than doubled.

In this video, staff scientist Maria Chiu discusses these and other study findings.
