Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Risk Factors among Hispanic/Latino Immigrant Farmworkers in the United States: A Scoping Review

by Naiha Ashraf
The Hispanic/Latino immigrant farmworker population experiences a disproportionate prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the United States. Despite this, a scoping review on CVD health among Hispanic/Latino immigrant farmworkers has not been completed to date. Therefore, a scoping review was completed to understand the correlates of CVD risk factors which includes (1) body mass index (BMI)/overweight/obesity, (2) high cholesterol, (3) diabetes, (4) hypertension, and (5) physical activity/exercise among Hispanic/Latino immigrant farmworkers.
