The Indian community in the U.S. is rapidly becoming one of the fastest-growing in the world, with the country’s population expected to swell to more than 30 million by 2040.
But there are several reasons why Indians are more likely to develop colon cancer than other Americans.
They are more ethnically diverse, have a higher percentage of immigrants, and are more prone to contracting it from food contamination and from living in poor communities.
“In the U!
S., colon cancer is the fourth-leading cause of death for Indian men, after cancer of the prostate, lung, and bladder,” according to the U of S National Cancer Institute.”
There is a huge disparity between the health of Indians in the United States and the health in other countries,” said Rupa Narang, a professor of public health at the University of Minnesota who has studied the problem for decades.
Indian immigrants are among the most likely to live in poverty.
Nearly 70 percent of Indian immigrants living in poverty have no high school diploma or less than a high school education, according to Narang.
More than half of Indian-Americans living in rural areas are poor, compared to less than 10 percent of U.K. residents.
“They are not getting access to the same resources and services that they would if they were coming from India,” said Narang who has worked to help Indian-American communities adapt to their growing populations.
The number of Indian Americans living in metropolitan areas rose to 13.5 million in 2016 from 6.7 million in 2000.
The U.N. estimates there are about 17 million Indian Americans in the country today, including more than 2.5 percent of the adult population.
The U.P.E.P., a group of about 60 Indian American organizations that includes the Indian Health Service, has partnered with the UMass-Lowell Medical School to educate Indians about the disease and to provide medical services.
The group also has created a mobile app that lets Indians access health information from health centers across the country, as well as news and education websites, and information about the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.
It also partnered with Indian American veterans and the Indian American Community Colleges and Universities to create a “U.P.”
E.T.A.A., which stands for Indian-Native Educator Training Program, a partnership between the UofP.
and the colleges.
The app includes videos, health information, job information, and support groups.
Narang said the goal of the program is to help young people develop the knowledge to manage the risks of colon cancer.
“The hope is to encourage them to get their medical care,” she said.
In India, there are more than a dozen hospitals that offer specialized care to colon cancer patients.
Some hospitals have specialized centers for people with chronic disease, such as those with cancer or who have multiple medical conditions.
Narang said she is pleased with the collaboration.
“I hope we can continue to create awareness about the health care system and the importance of colon health care,” said the Indian-born physician.
“That’s the only way to really make a difference.”
Narang, who lives in Cambridge, Mass., said her experience working with the Indian health services has been valuable.
“We’ve had tremendous success in getting Indians to get screened,” she added.
“We have a lot of Indians that have come in, but we’ve also had a lot that are in a really good state of mind.”
The U of P.
E, in partnership with Indian Health Services, has also developed an Indian-language program called U.U.U., which provides basic information about colorectal cancer and has partnered to expand its services.
Nar, the U, and the other groups have also launched the Indian Cancer Awareness Week.
“This is a chance for Indians to connect with their health care providers, to get to know the American Cancer Society and their health professionals and see what our services are,” Narang explained.
“And to find out more about the U.’s Indian Community Health Center in Cambridge.”
The project also aims to help Indians become more aware of the dangers of colon and rectal cancer.
Nar and Narang both work for the U., which has launched a program called “Colon Health Education Week,” to encourage Indians to talk to their doctors about the diseases.
They will be joined by U. P. E.
P members, the Indian Community Colleges, and Indian American leaders.
Nar said the U will also provide free medical services to those who have not been screened for colon cancer, including immunizations, screenings, and tests.
