Dr. Tang is an Adult Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Her research interest lies in quantitative method that combines both physiological and psychological measures. Her research focus is on health promotion through alternative approaches such as music intervention and brainwave regulation for cardiac health and light-sound stimulation for cognitive enhancement. Her other research expertise is survey research and scientific instrument/questionnaire design.
Dr. Tang presented the study, the Short-term and Long-term Effect of Two Audio Relaxation Programs on Blood Pressure Reduction in Older Adults, at the American Heart Association’s 62nd Annual Fall Conference of the Council for High Blood Pressure Research & the conference of American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation in September 2008. The study received international media coverage (Indiana Public Radio, Business Week, US News & World Report, WebMD, CBC, CBS, Canadian National TV, Telegraph-UK, Elmundo-Spanish, Ok-Salute Italy, 938Live Radio Singapore, ScienceDaily, MedPage Today, Food Consumer.Org, Family Circle Magazine, …).
