City Latino community gets involved in racial disparity conversation The Badger Herald. City Latino community gets involved in racial disparity conversation. The Latino community in Madison continues to gain a voice in the racial disparity movement, taking further action to research its concerns in education, health and safety. Salvador Carranza, senior academic planner at the University of Wisconsin System, said the Latino Support Network of Dane County serves to engage various leaders and organizations in the Latino community by hosting a monthly forum to discuss Latino issues. Carranza also serves as president of the Latino Education Council, which works to assist students in gaining access to a college education. The barriers that many Latino students face in going to college is based on immigration status, Carranza said. “Since Walker came in, there’s been several states that have actually passed resident tuition for undocumented students,” Carranza said.

The relationship between environmental protection and public health is at the heart of EPA’s mission and the agenda of the National Hispanic Medical Association. For years, Hispanic communities have been living in areas where the quality of the air they breathe and the water they drink does not meet national standards. In 2009, 70% of Hispanic children lived in areas with poor air quality.  All too often, Latinos work in occupations where they are exposed to greater environmental hazards and toxic chemicals. Furthermore, when it comes to health disparities, Latinos, particularly Puerto Ricans, are disproportionately affected by asthma attacks and asthma related deaths. Make no mistake.

By Krystal Chan, Development and Communications Intern. On March 31st, Senior Research Associate Liza Fuentes and I hosted our second spring semester brown bag lunch, “The Latino Health/Epidemiological Paradox…Does it really Exist?” The Latino Paradox does not have a robust definition but refers to statistical trends in which health outcomes do not match race/ethnicity or socioeconomic status. For Latinas this means that in some cases, despite our low socioeconomic environments, our health is comparable, or even better, than that of our non-Hispanic counterparts. It has been commonly known that Latinos suffer lower incidences of cardiovascular disease and have overall. lower rates of infant and maternal mortality. However, when looking closer, we still see that Puerto Ricans have the second highest infant mortality ...

*  NAMI Blog: The Latino Paradox: Mental Health Appears to Not Be an Exception
... Tuesday, October 15, 2013. The Latino Paradox: Mental Health Appears to Not Be an Exception. By Lynda Cortés-Avellaneda, Program Manager, NAMI Multicultural Action Center. Years ago, in a college class, I learned that socioeconomic status was commonly used as a predictor of health outcomes in most countries. I remember this well because my professor chose to exemplify global cases with extreme pictures of poverty and ghastly pathologies. What my sensationalist instructor forgot back then was to address how international migration would affect the locally observed epidemiologic correlation. Today, with a growing population of Latinos in America, a paradox continues to gain statistical force based on mortality data. Upon arrival, struggling low-income Latino immigrants are generally healthier than most segments of the U.S. population. The story appears to change within years. Length of residence in the U.S., as research suggests, may be associated with health deterioration. Even though this phenomenon hasn...

Funding Opportunities. Apply for Cancer Control Grants. Archive of Funding Opportunities. This study seeks to understand the processes of initiation and development of cancer-related health-compromising and health-enhancing behaviors among Latino adolescents. Several factors underscore the need for research among this ethnic population: a the rapid growth of the Latino population in the U.S.; b the convergence of their cancer morbidity and mortality rates with those of the majority population; c the increase of cancer risk factors in this group; and d the lack of research assessing the determinants of health behaviors in this group. This study will conduct a prospective longitudinal survey of Latino adolescents to assess the cultural, personal, and contextual factors associated with the development of health-compromising and health-enhancing behaviors. Adolescents will then be followed-up at 18 and 36 months to assess the initiation, maintenance and cessation of health-compromising and health- enhancing behav...

August 6, 2010 Filed under Culture Posted by Matthew See Author's Bio. Source: Associated Press. A recent Associated Press-Univision poll shows that for Latino students in American schools, sometimes the English immersion can do more harm than good. While the children s English thrives under the immersion conditions of US schools, many find that their Spanish-speaking parents are unable to help them with homework, as well as communicate effectively with the school faculty on the kids behalf. The poll says just 20 percent of mainly Spanish-speaking parents say they are able to communicate extremely well with their child s school, compared with 35 percent of Hispanics who speak English fluently.

Guest Post by Christina Elizabeth Rodríguez @kikisbetes. Latinos are passionate people. We talk about racism, we talk about progression, we talk about moving forward and doing things to push our community to the next level. We saw this at LATISM11. It was clearly a motivational and inspirational two days, at least for me. As all these tech-savvy Latinos came together, you saw smiles and nods and heard, “It’s so nice to finally meet you!” Avatars came to life. The support that I felt among the men and women of LATISM was immense and completely appreciated. In these situations, I wonder where the disconnect is between Latinos and their health. I recently wrote a blog if recent is about a couple months ago about how if people were as passionate about their health as they are about prejudice or racism or stereotypes or progress...

I saw the campaign for Dentyne with the tagline, Make Face Time. The campaign in a nutshell tells folks to log off the computer and have more interpersonal interaction. I started to wonder, is this relevant to Hispanics. Over the past 12-months, the Hispanic online population boomed. The online universe of Latinos grew 19% while the overall audience stayed relatively flat. What s more interesting is where that audience has gone. It s not Univision.com or Terra.com, two top Spanish-Language networks. Nope. Those sites actually saw decreases in audience. The winner. MySpace. Their Latino audience surged an incredible 293% over the past year. Not only that, but Latinos are going to the site daily and spending a lot of time interacting with friends.

HIV/AIDS and the African American community. New Pittsburgh Courier. Health HIV/AIDS and the African American community. HIV/AIDS and the African American community. Nationally, African Americans account for 44 percent of all new HIV infections, but African Americans account for only about 12-14 percent of the U.S. African Americans are roughly four times more likely to be diagnosed with HIV than other populations in the U.S. African American women are 20 times more likely than White women to be diagnosed with HIV. In fact, we know that African Americans as a population are less likely to engage in high-risk sexual practices. Why are African Americans at such high risk. African Americans as a population are less likely to know if they are HIV infected. If they are infected, they’re less likely to have medical care. If they’re not seeing a health care professional, they’re less likely to have lower levels of HIV in their blood. Taking all of this into account, we realize that the issue of health disparities an...

However, this finding could explain why when young African-American women get breast cancer it tends to be an aggressive form of the disease, which is consistent with cancers that involve BRCA1 mutations. However, women who have a family history of breast cancer or who are diagnosed with breast cancer when they are under 35 might want to be tested, she says. "There should be widespread use of genetic counseling in these young patients."

Obesity is a biological risk factor or comorbidity that has not received much attention from scientists studying hypertension among African American men. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between weight status and high blood pressure among African American men with few economic resources.

... Document Detail. A qualitative study of factors affecting pregnancy weight gain in African American women. MedLine Citation:. African Americans and overweight or obese women are at increased risk for excessive gestational weight gain GWG and postpartum weight retention. Interventions are needed to promote healthy GWG in this population; however, research on exercise and nutritional barriers during pregnancy in African American women is limited. The objective of this qualitative study is to better inform intervention messages by eliciting information on perceptions of appropriate weight gain, barriers to and enablers of exercise and healthy eating, and other influences on healthy weight gain during pregnancy in overweight or obese African American women. In-depth interviews were conducted with 33 overweight or obese African American women in Columbia, South Carolina. Women were recruited in early to mid-pregnancy 8-23 weeks gestation, n = 10, mid to late pregnancy 24-36 weeks, n = 15, and early postpartum...

African Americans are becoming infected and dying of AIDS in record numbers. Why are there still so many Black people becoming infected and dying from this virus. We know from reports that there are health disparities between communities of color and the white population. Do these reasons equate to the disproportionate amount of black people infected by this disease. African Americans have other obstacles, which put them on the frontline of this virus.

*  More Accurate Method of Estimating Breast Cancer Risk in African American Women Developed, November
... 27, 2007 News Release - National Institutes of Health NIH. More Accurate Method of Estimating Breast Cancer Risk in African American Women Developed A new model for calculating invasive breast cancer risk, called the CARE model, has been found to give better estimates of the number of breast cancers that would develop in African American women 50 to 79 years of age than an earlier model which was based primarily on data from white women. In particular, it is assumed that the relative risk of breast cancer associated with having a specific profile of risk factors for white women applies to African American women and to women from other racial and ethnic groups as well. Because of the need to rely on these various assumptions, rather than on sufficient data from African American women and women in other racial and ethnic groups, BCRAT, which can be found on the NCI Web site at http://www.cancer.gov/bcrisktool, includes a disclaimer for African American women and for women in other groups that their project...

*  .. Charting a Path to Health Equity: African American Women and Breast Cancer .. by Brenda Salgado
Charting a Path to Health Equity: African American Women and Breast Cancer. Posted on November 21, 2008 by Caitlin C. by Brenda Salgado. Here’s an alarming statistic: African American women are much more likely to die from breast cancer than white women, and the mortality gap has actually widened over the past 20 years. In 1980, breast cancer mortality rates were similar for both African American and white women. By 1990, African American women had a 16 percent higher mortality rate than white women, and by 2004 this difference had grown to 36 percent. African American women are also more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer at a younger age and at a later stage, and have more aggressive forms of the disease. These disturbing trends have led to a much-needed focus on why these differences exist and what can be done to alleviate them. Research has focused on screening rates, access to health care, treatment differences, and increasingly, genetic differences. While much of this research is important, it ...

(1/5055) Elevated asthma morbidity in Puerto Rican children: a review of possible risk and prognostic factors.

Latino children represent a significant proportion of all US children, and asthma is the most common chronic illness affecting them. Previous research has revealed surprising differences in health among Latino children with asthma of varying countries of family origin. For instance, Puerto Rican children have a higher prevalence of asthma than Mexican American or Cuban American children. In addition, there are important differences in family structure and socioeconomic status among these Latino populations: Cuban Americans have higher levels of education and family income than Mexican-Americans and Puerto Ricans; mainland Puerto Rican children have the highest proportion of households led by a single mother. Our review of past research documents differences in asthma outcomes among Latino children and identifies the possible genetic, environmental, and health care factors associated with these differences. Based on this review, we propose research studies designed to differentiate between mutable and immutable risk and prognostic factors. We also propose that the sociocultural milieus of Latino subgroups of different ethnic and geographic origin are associated with varying patterns of risk factors that in turn lead to different morbidity patterns. Our analysis provides a blue-print for future research, policy development, and the evaluation of multifactorial interventions involving the collaboration of multiple social sectors, such as health care, public health, education, and public and private agencies.  (+info)

(2/5055) Latino children's health and the family-community health promotion model.

A majority of Latino children in the US live in poverty. However, unlike other poor children, Latino children do not seem to have a consistent association between poverty and poor health. Instead, many poor Latino children have unexpectedly good health outcomes. This has been labeled an epidemiologic paradox. This paper proposes a new model of health, the family-community health promotion model, to account for this paradox. The family-community health promotion model emphasizes the family-community milieu of the child, in contrast to traditional models of health. In addition, the family-community model expands the outcome measures from physical health to functional health status, and underscores the contribution of cultural factors to functional health outcomes. In this paper, we applied the family-community health promotion model to four health outcomes: low birthweight, infant mortality, chronic and acute illness, and perceived health status. The implications of this model for research and policy are discussed.  (+info)

(3/5055) Calcium absorption and kinetics are similar in 7- and 8-year-old Mexican-American and Caucasian girls despite hormonal differences.

To assess the possibility of ethnic differences in mineral metabolism in prepubertal children, we compared measures of calcium metabolism in 7- and 8-y-old Mexican-American (MA) and non-Hispanic Caucasian (CAU) girls (n = 38) living in southeastern Texas. We found similar fractional calcium absorption, urinary calcium excretion, calcium kinetic values and total-body bone mineral content in the MA and CAU girls. In contrast, parathyroid hormone (PTH) concentrations were greater in MA girls (4.01 +/- 0.47 vs. 1. 96 +/- 0.50 pmol/L, P = 0.005) than in CAU girls. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations were lower in MA girls (68.9 +/- 7.7 vs. 109.4 +/- 8.4 nmol/L, P = 0.001) than in CAU girls, but 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D concentrations did not differ between groups. Seasonal variability was seen for 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations in girls of both ethnic groups, but values in all of the girls were >30 nmol/L (12 ng/mL). We conclude the following: 1) greater PTH levels in MA girls than CAU girls are present without evidence of vitamin D deficiency; and 2) differences in 25-hydroxyvitamin D and PTH concentrations between MA and CAU girls do not have a large effect on calcium absorption, excretion or bone calcium kinetics. These data do not provide evidence for adjusting dietary recommendations for mineral or vitamin D intake by MA girls.  (+info)

(4/5055) Influence of maternal ethnicity on infant mortality in Chicago, 1989-1996.

This study compared infant mortality rates between large ethnic groups in Chicago from 1989-1996. Infant mortality information about ethnic groups was compared using data from annual reports published by the Epidemiology Program, Department of Public Health, City of Chicago and vital statistics documents in Illinois, which include information on ethnicity. Chi-squared analysis was used to evaluate the differences between the proportions. A P value of < .05 was considered significant. During the study period, there were 461,974 births and 6407 infant deaths in Chicago. African Americans contributed 212,924 (46.1%) births and 4387 (68.5%) deaths; Hispanics 132,787 (28.7%) births and 1166 (18.2%) deaths; and whites 99,532 (21.6%) births and 780 (12.2%) infant deaths. Compared with the other groups. African Americans suffered a twofold increased mortality (P < .00001) for five of the six most common causes of infant mortality. Deaths from congenital malformations, although significant, were not excessively increased among African Americans (P = .014). Hispanics demonstrated a higher mortality rate than whites (P = .01), especially for postnatal mortality and respiratory distress syndrome. These data confirm excessive infant mortality among African Americans. Further studies are needed to evaluate the apparent low mortality among some Hispanics compared with the other groups studied.  (+info)

(5/5055) Linkage of type 2 diabetes mellitus and of age at onset to a genetic location on chromosome 10q in Mexican Americans.

Since little is known about chromosomal locations harboring type 2 diabetes-susceptibility genes, we conducted a genomewide scan for such genes in a Mexican American population. We used data from 27 low-income extended Mexican American pedigrees consisting of 440 individuals for whom genotypic data are available for 379 markers. We used a variance-components technique to conduct multipoint linkage analyses for two phenotypes: type 2 diabetes (a discrete trait) and age at onset of diabetes (a truncated quantitative trait). For the multipoint analyses, a subset of 295 markers was selected on the basis of optimal spacing and informativeness. We found significant evidence that a susceptibility locus near the marker D10S587 on chromosome 10q influences age at onset of diabetes (LOD score 3.75) and is also linked with type 2 diabetes itself (LOD score 2.88). This susceptibility locus explains 63.8%+/-9.9% (P=. 000016) of the total phenotypic variation in age at onset of diabetes and 65.7%+/-10.9% (P=.000135) of the total variation in liability to type 2 diabetes. Weaker evidence was found for linkage of diabetes and of age at onset to regions on chromosomes 3p, 4q, and 9p. In conclusion, our strongest evidence for linkage to both age at onset of diabetes and type 2 diabetes itself in the Mexican American population was for a region on chromosome 10q.  (+info)

(6/5055) Marijuana use among minority youths living in public housing developments.

Youths residing in public housing developments appear to be at markedly heightened risk for drug use because of their constant exposure to violence, poverty, and drug-related activity. The purpose of this study was to develop and test a model of marijuana etiology with adolescents (N = 624) residing in public housing. African-American and Hispanic seventh graders completed questionnaires about their marijuana use, social influences to smoke marijuana, and sociodemographic and psychosocial characteristics. Results indicated that social influences, such as friends' marijuana use and perceived ease of availability of marijuana, significantly predicted both occasional and future use of marijuana. Individual characteristics such as antimarijuana attitudes and drug refusal skills also predicted marijuana use. The findings imply that effective prevention approaches that target urban youths residing in public housing developments should provide them with an awareness of social influences to use marijuana, correct misperceptions about the prevalence of marijuana smoking, and train adolescents in relevant psychosocial skills.  (+info)

(7/5055) Racial and ethnic differences in glycemic control of adults with type 2 diabetes.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate glycemic control in a representative sample of U.S. adults with type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: The Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey included national samples of non-Hispanic whites, non-Hispanic blacks, and Mexican Americans aged > or = 20 years. Information on medical history and treatment of diabetes was obtained to determine those who had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes by a physician before the survey (n = 1,480). Fasting plasma glucose and HbA1c were measured, and the frequencies of sociodemographic and clinical variables related to glycemic control were determined. RESULTS: A higher proportion of non-Hispanic blacks were treated with insulin and a higher proportion of Mexican Americans were treated with oral agents compared with non-Hispanic whites, but the majority of adults in each racial or ethnic group (71-83%) used pharmacologic treatment for diabetes. Use of multiple daily insulin injections was more common in whites. Blood glucose self-monitoring was less common in Mexican Americans, but most patients had never self-monitored. HbA1c values in the nondiabetic range were found in 26% of non-Hispanic whites, 17% of non-Hispanic blacks, and 20% of Mexican Americans. Poor glycemic control (HbA1c > 8%) was more common in non-Hispanic black women (50%) and Mexican-American men (45%) compared with the other groups (35-38%), but HbA1c for both sexes and for all racial and ethnic groups was substantially higher than normal levels. Those with HbA1c > 8% included 52% of insulin-treated patients and 42% of those taking oral agents. There was no relationship of glycemic control to socioeconomic status or access to medical care in any racial or ethnic group. CONCLUSIONS: These data indicate that many patients with type 2 diabetes in the U.S. have poor glycemic control, placing them at high risk of diabetic complications. Non-Hispanic black women, Mexican-American men, and patients treated with insulin and oral agents were disproportionately represented among those in poor glycemic control. Clinical, public health, and research efforts should focus on more effective methods to control blood glucose in patients with diabetes.  (+info)

(8/5055) Differential mortality in New York City (1988-1992). Part Two: excess mortality in the south Bronx.

To display the extent of variations in mortality according to geographic regions in New York City, we have compared mortality in New York City as a whole with that of the South Bronx. Mortality records for 1988 to 1992 and 1990 US census data for New York City were linked. The 471,000 residents of the South Bronx were younger, less educated, and more likely to lack health insurance than other New Yorkers. Using age- and gender-stratified populations and mortality in New York City as standards, age-adjusted death rates and excess mortality in the South Bronx were determined. All-cause mortality in the South Bronx was 26% higher than the city as a whole. Mortality for AIDS, injury and poisoning, drug and alcohol abuse, and cardiovascular diseases were 50% to 100% higher in the South Bronx than in New York City; years of potential life lost before age 65 in the South Bronx were 41.6% and 44.2% higher for men and women, respectively, than in New York City; AIDS accounted for the largest single share of excess premature deaths (21.8%). In summary, inequalities in health status, reflected by higher mortality rates in the South Bronx, are consistent with, and perhaps caused by, lower socioeconomic status and deficient medical care among residents of this inner-city community.  (+info)


What type of food is good for body growth and being healthy?


I'm 18, 5'6 tall and weight about 140 lbs. I hope to be taller and be in healthy shape. Being Hispanic- American, I mostly eat Hispanic food. 

Thanks and 'preciate your advice and time.
----------

To answer your question; While still being the basics, fiber, fruits, vegetables and water can help with digestion and giving you more nutrients, and they're simple enough ingredients to mix in with your everyday life.

Fiber is found mostly in dry foods, like cereal, beans, granola bars and nuts. It's easy to get them in for an afternoon or midnight snack, or just whenever you feel hungry at school or work. But when buying name-brands, you may want to look at the calories. Things like extra-salted peanuts or marshmellow and double-fudge-swirl cereal can do more harm than good.

Fruit is another easily digested healthy food, which you can have mainly for breakfast or dessert. Yogurt can also be a healthy fruit source, too (if they use actually fruit and not oil. Again, check ingrediants lists and calories on them to find out). However, there is one problem; studies have shown that some fruits have juices that can weaken enamel (a natural coating around teeth to protect them from germs and decay), so don't eat too much of them.

Vegetables are varied and can be eaten for anything at any time of day, and can be found in foods you like. So next time you go out for some Mexican or Spanish food, you can try something with a little less sauce and a bit more veggies and herbs.

And it has also been proven that drinking three bottles of water a day (not all in one gulp, just a sip or a drink at various points) can help your body get rid of more stored fat.


What names could be normal all around the world?


I say maria. I know philipinos, japanese, hispanic, american, and european people named this.
----------

I agree. Maria varies as a common name in many ethnicities and cultures. It would be considered pretty normal in many places.


What shampoo and conditioner would you suggest is the best for my type of hair?


Ok so im hispanic mexican-american but white skinned not brown skin. I have long thick wavy full bodied dark dark brown hair and i do straighten it most of the time and my straghtner works really well on it i love the way how it makes my hair thiner and straighter then what it is but do you suggest what would be the best type of shampoo and conditioner for my hair? thank you.

----------

To get your waves tamed for them to look naturally beautiful, I suggest Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves fortifying shampoo (for your wavy hair) and the conditioner that comes with it. This will get your waves under control and manageable. The conditioner moisturizes to help tame frizz and smooth hair. It kind of pre-styles and shapes hair into natural flowing waves. If you want to make your hair a lot straighter, I suggest Herbal Essences Pin Straight shampoo and conditioner. this adds shine to your air, smells great (haha), tames frizz and flyaways, and makes your hair much more straight. it also thins the hair to make it more manageable. Good luck!!! Hope i helped :)


what are some cute hispanic baby names?


I just found out i might be pregnant so im trying to think of some baby names. I want some hispanic and american names. I have already thought of estrella raquel for a girl or erika. But i have no idea for a boy.

How do you feel about unnatural hair colors on people of ethnic origins?


Do you think black hair looks best on people who are asian , hispanic and african-american descent ? Or do you like shades of red , brown and blonde ?
----------

Anybody can wear any hair color, they've just gotta have the attitude/personality/confidence to go along with it. The most important thing to me in hair is whether or not it's healthy looking. There's nothing more unattractive to me than someone with fried hair.


Why do some Hispanic women choose not to shave that dark little fuzz on their upper lip?


I've noticed that Hispanic women occasionally leave a light mustache on their upper lip.
They obviously know it's there!!  Why do they choose to leave it there?
----------

Cause most hispanic women obviously havent fallen into the Hollywood trap of the beleif that body hair is bad.  It isnt bad, thats just an idea that the west has put onto women to ultimately get them to buy all the crappy products that are produced by all these pharmie-type companies - its all about the money.  

Stay content, dont beleive the hype that what men want is the perfection that hollywood puts across - its all a magic spell cast by the Holly Wood - which is what the wizards used for a magic wand.  Its all an illusion.  ;-)


What are some Hispanic and American baby girl names?


That are feminine and pretty and not the average "Maria". My fiancee is Mexican and I am American and we are expecting a baby girl and are having some trouble in the name department.

We have two names we both like a lot but still aren't sure. The names are Lydia and Marianna.
