Long-standing inequities exist in the amount of research on diseases that affect the developed world and those—such as leishmaniasis and schistosomiasis—that affect nonwhite populations who live in the developing world. Studies in white populations, therefore, cannot necessarily be extrapolated to other ethnic groups. They identified 72 studies, 39 of which started after 1975 at that time, it was well-known that different ethnic groups have different risk factors, and quite a bit was known about causes and control of the disease in white populations.

Minority Nurse Staff. California hospital ER overcrowding affects area minorities. A University of California, San Francisco study found that California hospitals in areas with large minority populations are more likely to be overcrowded and divert ambulances, delaying timely emergency care. The study, published in the August issue of Health Affairs, examined ambulance drivers in hospitals around the state to assess whether overcrowding in emergency rooms disproportionately affects racial and ethnic minorities. Researchers say this is the first study using hospital-level data to show how diversion affects minorities, and research found minorities are more at risk of being impacted by ER crowding and by diversion than non-minorities. Researchers looked at 2007 data from 202 hospitals around the state, which showed hospitals that served the greatest percentage of minority patients turned away ambulances because of overcrowding far more than those that served the smallest number of minorities. Researchers found...

You are here Home Health Disparities Cause Financial Burdens for Families, Communities and Health Care System. WASHINGTON —Health disparities are creating economic burdens for families, communities and the nation’s health care system. Across the country, infant mortality and chronic diseases continue to affect people of color at rates far higher than those for whites. The 2010 National Healthcare Disparities Report documented that racial and ethnic minorities often receive poorer care than whites while facing more barriers in seeking preventive care, acute treatment or chronic disease management. According to the report, minorities also experience rates of preventable hospitalization that, in some cases, are almost double that of whites; African-Americans have higher hospitalization rates from influenza; and black children are twice as likely to be hospitalized and more than four times as likely to die from asthma as ...

In addition to environmental factors, several genetic variants have been associated with CRP levels and other inflammation-related traits. Most of these studies, however, have been performed in populations of European ancestry and have not been as well studied in other race/ethnicity groups. Jonathan Kocarnik, Ulrike Peters, and colleagues in the Public Health Sciences Division investigated whether inflammation-related genetic variants were associated with CRP levels in various race/ethnicity groups. Results showed both similarities and differences in these associations across race/ethnicity groups, and also identified a novel genetic association with CRP. To perform these analyses, the authors utilized data from 7 studies participating in the Population Architecture using Genomics and Epidemiology PAGE study, a large consortium inves...

Ocean Acidification Threats to Fisheries and Aquaculture. The pH of surface oceans has dropped by 0.1 units since the industrial revolution and if fossil fuel combustion continues at present rates, the pH of the world s oceans will probably drop another 0.3 to 0.4 units by 2100. The surface ocean is not the only area being impacted by ocean acidification OA. As the world s oceans become more acidic, marine organisms corals, plankton, calcareous algae, and mollusks that build skeletons, tests, and shells of calcium carbonate will be negatively impacted, which will likely lead to cascading effects throughout marine food webs, including commercial and recreational fisheries. This session will address the potential economic and biological impacts of ocean acidification on commercial and recreational fisheries, with particular emphasis on shellfish aquaculture. Poli...

... Skin Care Acne. Bioelements Review Series: Breakout Control. One of the best Bioelements products that I've tried to date is Bioelements Breakout Control. This is a product that is meant to be an "adult acne lotion" and can be used as a preventive lotion 1-2 times per day on the entire face or as a trouble shooter for problem areas. Breakout control is a 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide lotion, which makes it essentially the same product as Proactive's Repairing Lotion. Except, that this product is not Proactive's Lotion, because it is simply better. I tried decreasing to once a day lotion and then once every other day, but the issues with irritation persisted. I tried the Proactive products meant for those with dryness, but this made my acne worse. Since that time my face has finally started to clear up quite a bit, though I do have blemishes around a certain time each month, and at times of stress. When I saw that the active ingredient in Breakout Control was also 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide, I was anticipating many of...

... tment for heart attack patients depend on the admitting hospital. Disparities/Minority Health. Black/white disparities in time to treatment for heart attack patients depend on the admitting hospital Black heart attack patients wait about 20 percent longer than similar white patients before receiving hospital treatment. Compared with white patients, black patients wait 7 minutes longer from hospital arrival until they receive a clot-busting drug door-to-drug and 19 minutes longer from arrival to the start of coronary angioplasty or bypass surgery door-to-balloon. Hispanic and other ethnic patients also wait longer for treatment than their white counterparts, but their waiting times are more modest, according to a study supported in part by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality HS10407. The study showed that these disparities in treatment depended on the specific hospital to which patients were admitted and not to differences in treatment inside the hospital. For example, the crude difference in do...

Minority Stress and Physical Health Among Sexual Minorities. By David J. Lick, Laura E. Durso, Kerri L. Johnson. October 2013. LGB individuals are at heightened risk for a range of negative health outcomes as a result of stress caused by anti-gay prejudice. Poorer general health, increased risk for cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes are some among many conditions where disparities exist between LGB and heterosexual individuals. This paper reviews current empirical findings related to LGB physical health disparities, highlights gaps in the literature, and outlines necessary steps researchers must take to understand how social experiences ultimately harm LGB physical health. Compared to heterosexuals, LGB individuals exhibit: • Higher prevalence and earlier onset of disabilities, such as use of a walking assistant Conron, Mimiaga, Landers, 2010; Fredriksen-Goldsen, Kim, Barkan, 2012; Kim Fredriksen-Goldsen, 2012 • Higher rates of asthma Conron, Mimiaga, Landers, 2010; Landers, Mimiaga, Conron, 2011 • ...

(1/1465) Selecting subjects for participation in clinical research: one sphere of justice.

Recent guidelines from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) mandate the inclusion of adequate numbers of women in clinical trials. Ought such standards to apply internationally? Walzer's theory of justice is brought to bear on the problem, the first use of the theory in research ethics, and it argues for broad application of the principle of adequate representation. A number of practical conclusions for research ethics committees (RECs) are outlined. Eligibility criteria in clinical trials ought to be justified by trial designers. Research ethics committees ought to question criteria that seem to exclude unnecessarily women from research participation. The issue of adequate representation should be construed broadly, so as to include consideration of the representation of the elderly, persons with HIV, mental illness and substance abuse disorders in clinical research.  (+info)

(2/1465) Recruiting minority cancer patients into cancer clinical trials: a pilot project involving the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group and the National Medical Association.

PURPOSE: Minority accrual onto clinical trials is of significant interest to cooperative oncology study groups. The Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) conducted a study to identify barriers and solutions to African American accrual onto clinical trials. METHODS: We hypothesize that the National Medical Association (NMA) might provide insight into ways to increase minority participation and that ECOG might facilitate that participation. Four sites were selected in which NMA chapters existed and ECOG main institutions with less than half of the corresponding percentage of minorities in their communities entered trials for 1992. Fifteen workshops were conducted using discussions and open-ended, self-administered questionnaires. RESULTS: Seventy percent of NMA physicians cited mistrust of the research centers, fear of losing patients, and a lack of respect from ECOG institutions as the most important barriers to minority cancer patient referrals, compared with 30% for ECOG physicians. Sixty-nine percent of NMA and 43% of ECOG physicians cited a lack of information about specific trials. Nearly half of NMA physicians (47%) cited a lack of minority investigators as a barrier, compared with 4% of ECOG physicians. Solutions by both groups were improved communication (73%) and culturally relevant educational materials (40%). ECOG physicians cited more minority outreach staff as a potential solution (22% v 6%). NMA physicians cited increased involvement of referring physicians (44% v4%). CONCLUSION: NMA physicians who serve a significant sector of the African American population demonstrated a willingness to participate and work with a cooperative group effort to increase participation of minority patients and investigators.  (+info)

(3/1465) 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)

(4/1465) Library residencies and internships as indicators of success: evidence from three programs.

This paper discusses post-master's degree internships in three very different organizations; the University of Illinois at Chicago, the National Library of Medicine, and the Library of Congress. It discusses the internships using several questions. Do the programs serve as a recruitment strategy? Do the programs develop key competencies needed by the participant or organization? Do the programs develop leaders and managers? Is acceptance into a program an indicator of future career success? A survey was mailed to 520 persons who had completed internships in one of the three programs. There was a 49.8% response rate. Responses to fifty-four questions were tabulated and analyzed for each program and for the total group. The results confirm the value of internships to the career of participants.  (+info)

(5/1465) Contraceptive failure rates: new estimates from the 1995 National Survey of Family Growth.

CONTEXT: Unintended pregnancy remains a major public health concern in the United States. Information on pregnancy rates among contraceptive users is needed to guide medical professionals' recommendations and individuals' choices of contraceptive methods. METHODS: Data were taken from the 1995 National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) and the 1994-1995 Abortion Patient Survey (APS). Hazards models were used to estimate method-specific contraceptive failure rates during the first six months and during the first year of contraceptive use for all U.S. women. In addition, rates were corrected to take into account the underreporting of induced abortion in the NSFG. Corrected 12-month failure rates were also estimated for subgroups of women by age, union status, poverty level, race or ethnicity, and religion. RESULTS: When contraceptive methods are ranked by effectiveness over the first 12 months of use (corrected for abortion underreporting), the implant and injectables have the lowest failure rates (2-3%), followed by the pill (8%), the diaphragm and the cervical cap (12%), the male condom (14%), periodic abstinence (21%), withdrawal (24%) and spermicides (26%). In general, failure rates are highest among cohabiting and other unmarried women, among those with an annual family income below 200% of the federal poverty level, among black and Hispanic women, among adolescents and among women in their 20s. For example, adolescent women who are not married but are cohabiting experience a failure rate of about 31% in the first year of contraceptive use, while the 12-month failure rate among married women aged 30 and older is only 7%. Black women have a contraceptive failure rate of about 19%, and this rate does not vary by family income; in contrast, overall 12-month rates are lower among Hispanic women (15%) and white women (10%), but vary by income, with poorer women having substantially greater failure rates than more affluent women. CONCLUSIONS: Levels of contraceptive failure vary widely by method, as well as by personal and background characteristics. Income's strong influence on contraceptive failure suggests that access barriers and the general disadvantage associated with poverty seriously impede effective contraceptive practice in the United States.  (+info)

(6/1465) Contraceptive failure, method-related discontinuation and resumption of use: results from the 1995 National Survey of Family Growth.

CONTEXT: Half of all pregnancies in the United States are unintended. Of these, half occur to women who were practicing contraception in the month they conceived, and others occur when couples stop use because they find their method difficult or inconvenient to use. METHODS: Data from the 1995 National Survey of Family Growth were used to compute life-table probabilities of contraceptive failure for reversible methods of contraception, discontinuation of use for a method-related reason and resumption of contraceptive use. RESULTS: Within one year of starting to use a reversible method of contraception, 9% of women experience a contraceptive failure--7% of those using the pill, 9% of those relying on the male condom and 19% of those practicing withdrawal. During a lifetime of use of reversible methods, the typical woman will experience 1.8 contraceptive failures. Overall, 31% of women discontinue use of a reversible contraceptive for a method-related reason within six months of starting use, and 44% do so within 12 months; however, 68% resume use of a method within one month and 76% do so within three months. Multivariate analyses show that the risk of contraceptive failure is elevated among low-income women and Hispanic women. Low-income women are also less likely than other women to resume contraceptive use after discontinuation. CONCLUSIONS: The risks of pregnancy during typical use of reversible methods of contraception are considerably higher than risks of failure during clinical trials, reflecting imperfect use of these methods rather than lack of inherent efficacy. High rates of method-related discontinuation probably reflect dissatisfaction with available methods.  (+info)

(7/1465) Risk for metabolic control problems in minority youth with diabetes.

OBJECTIVE: We examined and quantified the degree of risk for poor glycemic control and hospitalizations for diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) among black, Hispanic, and white children and adolescents with diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We examined ethnic differences in metabolic control among 68 black, 145 Hispanic, and 44 white children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes (mean age 12.9 [range 1-21] years), who were primarily of low socioeconomic status. Clinical and demographic data were obtained by medical chart review. Glycohemoglobins were standardized and compared across ethnic groups. Odds ratios among the ethnic groups for poor glycemic control and hospitalizations for DKA were also calculated. RESULTS: The ethnic groups were not different with respect to age, BMI, insulin dose, or hospitalizations for DKA, but black children were older at the time of diagnosis than Hispanics (P < 0.05) and were less likely to have private health insurance than white and Hispanic children (P < 0.001). Black youths had higher glycohemoglobin levels than white and Hispanic youths (P < 0.001 after controlling for age at diagnosis). Black youths were also at greatest risk for poor glycemic control (OR = 3.9, relative to whites; OR = 2.5, relative to Hispanics). CONCLUSIONS: These results underscore and quantify the increased risk for glycemic control problems of lower-income, black children with diabetes. In the absence of effective intervention, these youths are likely to be overrepresented in the health care system as a result of increased health complications related to diabetes.  (+info)

(8/1465) Racial bias in federal nutrition policy, Part II: Weak guidelines take a disproportionate toll.

Many diet-related chronic diseases take a disproportionate toll among members of racial minorities. Research shows the prevalence of diabetes, hypertension, cancer, and heart disease is higher among various ethnic groups compared with whites. The Guidelines and the Food Guide Pyramid, however, promote the use of multiple servings of meats and dairy products each day and do not encourage replacing these foods with vegetables, legumes, fruits, and grains. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans encourage a 30% caloric reduction in fat intake and make no provision for further reductions for those who wish to minimize health risks. Abundant evidence has shown that regular exercise combined with diets lower in fat and richer in plant products than is encouraged by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans are associated with reduced risk of these chronic conditions. While ineffective Dietary Guidelines potentially put all Americans at unnecessary risk, this is particularly true for those groups hardest hit by chronic disease.  (+info)

Everyone has depression to a point, people who OD, cut themselves and are put on 96 hour holds are in the minority.  I was just let out of a psychiatric ward.  Since then I'v seen two other people from the hospital, they were roaming around Walmart and a local store.  They are among the masses, just most people have better coping skills.


I dont understand why certain ethnicities are prone to Type 2 diabetes?


I'm doing a paper on diabetes because it runs in my family, and i am reading about how native americans, hispanics and blacks are at a much higher risk to develop the disease than non-hispanic, non native american whites. Yes i realize that certain minority groups may live in poverty, and of course that leaves them with a small grocery budget = cheap unhealthy foods.  But that doesn't mean their ETHNICITY has anything to do with developing diabetes? what the hell? 

please tell me your thoughts on this!
----------

Being prone to type 2 diabetes is more to do with diet and exercise and weight than poverty. Most Black Americans grew up eating meals high in carbs. and complex sugar  (mac and cheese, potato salad, yams and rice with a meat on one plate) for sunday dinners, holidays, etc. as well as hispanics and native americans. 

See in this culture we tend to point to poverty..yet it is not the poverty that causes a disease. It's the lack of knowledge that makes it more wide spread. I think that if grandma knew that cooking big hams, and collards with ham hocks, baked macaroni and cheese and deep fried catfish on sundays would lead to half her children having diabetes later, she would have opted to leave out the peach cobbler and all the biscuits laced in gravy...

not bad for some poverty strickened folks huh? lol. 

I think that we need to open our minds more and realize it has more to do with folks not going to the doctor and not paying attention to their diets than how much money they have.


Where can I buy cheap hand rolling tobacco?


International or U.S. sites are both good, but I would like to try and get around the Obama sin tax, on a minority group that is an easy target for tax increases.

What are some online support groups for people with depression/bipolar disorder?


I've heard that there are onlne support groups for people who have been diagnosed with a mental illness such as depression or bipolar disorder.  If you have any recommendations, please let me know.  I think an online group might help me relieve some of my feelings of isolation when I am alone.  I know that an in-person type of group might be beneficial as well, but I'd like to start slowly.

What muscle groups should I work out together for the most effective workout?


I'm a 25 year old fit female who works out on a regular basis. However, I'm not sure what muscle groups I should be working out together and on what days? I want to make my workouts as effective as they can possibly be. For example, should I be doing chest and back on the same day? I have been, but I have a feeling that's not correct! Help!
----------

i guess your talking about weight training, well there are many different work out patterns such as 1 day one 1 day off, 2 days on 1 day off...

I dont really work out a lot any more, but i went 5-6 times a week and i had a muscle cycle

days
1 chest and triceps
2 back and biceps
3 shoulders and triceps
4 legs and forarms

After i due my chest back shoulder.  I would only do one or two more exprcises for my bi's or tri's since they are already getting worked out with the primary muscle group.

I seen other people do other different cycles but this one worked for me when i used to go to the gym, now i still use the same cycle but i only go about 2 times a week.  so i only hit each muscle group every other week.  i go pretty much just for fun now,


What support groups and genetic counselors are there for the genetic disorder: familial hypercholesterolemia?


We are a group of high school students who need to contact a genetic counselor or support group about familial hypercholesterolemia for a biology project. Are there any genetic counselors or groups that you know of?
----------

Couldn't find any support groups, but I found the NSGC (National Society of Genetic Counselors) website www.nsgc.org.  The menu on the left allows you to search for genetic counselors by specialty or by geography.  Hope that helps.  Sorry I couldn't find a support group!


What other muscle group would you recommend training with the abs on a given day?


I tend to isolate two muscle groups per training session. What other muscle should I train when I work my abs? 

Also, is it better to work your abs at the start,  middle or end of an intense workout?
----------

first off you should be aware that your abs arent just that six pack- your abs are part of a larger group of abdominal muscles( ext abdominal obliques, internal abdominal obliques, rectus abdominus, transverse abdominus, and I'd even include quadratus lumborum, and erector spinae), which all play a role in core stabilization and help resist movement and aid in defecation and coughing as well lol..anyway all of your abdominal muscles shoud be trained somewhat with every workout- not necessarily in isolation, but you can focus on obliques in one workout and abdominal muscles in another, and your back stablizers (QL and ES) on another day i suppose


would cubans be considered the most successful spanish group in america?


when i went to miami for a trip i found that the majority of cubans lived in very nice homes, some of which may be considered very expensive homes and mansions. dose that mean they are a successful minority group in the USA
well people from cuba came from spain so that kind of makes them spanish lol
well people from cuba came from spain so that kind of makes them spanish lol
----------

sweetie sweetie, pick up a book.
the spanish conquered not only cuba but all of central and south america. except brazil which portugal got because of an agreement...which i won't bother explaining.
anyways cubans didn't come from spain, cuba was originally inhabited by natives just like north, central and south america. but they died off when the spanish came, later africans were brought due to the triangular trade, thats why theres not indian looking people in cuba, you're either really white or really black.

and now in mexico, central america and parts of south america there are people that are called mestizos, a mix of indian and spanish. so not only cubans have spanish roots.

and to answer your question: no, thats a stereotypical concept


oh and i am from miami, i live in l.a now (UCLA) but i lived in hialeah/miami and the majority of cubans are poor as hell too. just like everyone else, there are rich and poor from every country
