Crespo, Carlos J.
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v28 n10 p36-40,43-46 Oct 2000
American cultural diversity makes it difficult to promote one single fitness and health program. Health disparities exist between racial and ethnic groups. Healthy People 2000 and 2010 are designed to encourage physical activity for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, or economic status. Physicians need to understand these inequities and consider the unique needs of minorities when providing advice and exercise regimens. (SM)
