About me

Shuyuan Huang is an Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow at New York University (NYU) Rory Meyers College of Nursing. Dr. Huang received her Ph.D. from the Yale School of Nursing, her Master of Public Health (MPH) from the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, her MSN from Central South University, and her BSN from Xi’an JiaoTong University. She is a registered nurse in the US, and also a certified lifestyle coach for the CDC National Diabetes Prevention Program. She joins NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing as part of the NYU Provost’s postdoctoral fellowship program.

Dr. Huang’s research focuses on the intersection of chronic disease prevention (e.g., diabetes, cardiovascular disease), maternal health, and minority and immigrant health. Her research program aims to develop culturally and linguistically sensitive lifestyle interventions through mHealth technology for cardiometabolic disease prevention among postpartum Asian/Chinese immigrants with a recent history of gestational diabetes. Her research projects have been or are supported by NIH/NIMHD, Heilbrunn Nurse Scholar Award, Connecticut Nurses’ Foundation Scholarship Award, and Sigma Theta Tau Delta Mu Professional Development Award. She has published 10 SCI papers and is serving as a journal reviewer for 8 SCI journals.

Her dissertation study examined the physical activity and sedentary behavior of Chinese immigrants in the US with a history of gestational diabetes using wearable devices. She identified an inactive and sedentary lifestyle of this high-risk population, as well as culturally relevant and modifiable factors associated with these two behaviors. Building upon her dissertation work, her current project “24-Hour Activity and Cardiometabolic Health in Chinese American Women with a History of Gestational Diabetes” aims to characterize the accelerometer-based 24-hour activity and cardiometabolic risk profile, and to describe the multi-contextual barriers and facilitators to meeting physical activity and sleep guidelines in this high-risk population.


          研究重点是慢性病预防(如糖尿病、心血管疾病)、孕产妇健康以及少数族裔和移民健康的交叉问题。研究项目旨在对有妊娠糖尿病史的亚裔/华裔移民进行心脏代谢性疾病的预防,比如通过移动医疗技术开发文化和语言上友好的生活方式干预措施。获得美国国立卫生研究院、Heilbrunn护士学者奖、康涅狄格州护士基金会奖学金和国际护理荣誉组织(Sigma Theta Tau)职业发展奖。发表了10篇SCI论文,并担任8份SCI期刊的审稿人。

           博士课题利用可穿戴设备考察了有妊娠糖尿病史的在美华人妇女的身体活动和久坐行为。她确定了这一高危人群的不活动和久坐的生活方式,以及与这两种行为相关的文化和其他可改变的因素。当前的项目 "有妊娠糖尿病史的美国华人妇女的24小时活动和心脏代谢健康 "旨在描述24小时活动和心脏代谢风险概况,并描述这个高风险人群身体活动和睡眠的障碍和促进因素。
