Shuyuan Huang's additional information

Shuyuan Huang, PhD, MPH, RN, is an assistant professor/faculty fellow at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing. Her research focuses on reducing health disparities in chronic disease prevention (e.g., diabetes, cardiovascular disease) through healthy lifestyle behaviors among people with gestational diabetes. Huang’s initial goal is to develop culturally and linguistically sensitive lifestyle interventions through technology for diabetes prevention among postpartum Asian/Chinese immigrants with a recent history of gestational diabetes. She is 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.

Before joining NYU Meyers, Huang was a nursing doctoral student at Yale School of Nursing. 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. Before that, she worked as a Program Officer at an international humanitarian agency, CARE USA, to promote family planning among women in resource-limited countries.

Huang has received the New York University Provost Postdoctoral Fellowship, Connecticut Nurses’ Foundation Scholarship Award, Sigma Theta Tau Delta Mu Professional Development Award, Dean Margaret Grey Ph.D. Fellowship, and China Medical Board Next Generation Fellowship.

Huang earned her Ph.D. from the Yale School of Nursing, her 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.
