(1/654) Changes across 3 years in self-reported awareness of product warning messages in a Hispanic community.

This study investigated the self-reported awareness of product warning messages among independent random samples of Hispanics in San Francisco surveyed from 1989 through 1992. Messages tested were primarily related to cigarette smoking and the consumption of alcoholic beverages. In general, respondents reported low levels of awareness of product warning messages with the exception of those messages dealing with the consumption of alcohol or cigarettes during pregnancy. Nevertheless, there were increases in awareness across years for the alcohol-related warning messages and for one of the cigarette messages, indicating that continued exposure increases awareness of the message. A notable proportion of the respondents reported being aware of a bogus message implying the presence of socially desirable responses in self-reports of message awareness. Gender, education, age and acculturation level of the respondents also showed effects on reported awareness of specific messages. Continued exposure to product warning messages seems useful in producing health-enhancing behaviors among Hispanics.  (+info)

(2/654) Cardiovascular risk factors in Mexican American adults: a transcultural analysis of NHANES III, 1988-1994.

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the extent to which cardiovascular disease risk factors differ among subgroups of Mexican Americans living in the United States. METHODS: Using data from a national sample (1988-1994) of 1387 Mexican American women and 1404 Mexican American men, aged 25 to 64 years, we examined an estimate of coronary heart disease mortality risk and 5 primary cardiovascular disease risk factors: systolic blood pressure, body mass index, cigarette smoking, non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Differences in risk were evaluated by country of birth and primary language spoken. RESULTS: Estimated 10-year coronary heart disease mortality risk per 1000 persons, adjusted for age and education, was highest for US-born Spanish-speaking men and women (27.5 and 11.4, respectively), intermediate for US-born English-speaking men and women (22.5 and 7.0), and lowest for Mexican-born men and women (20.0 and 6.6). A similar pattern of higher risk among US-born Spanish-speaking men and women was demonstrated for each of the 5 cardiovascular disease risk factors. CONCLUSIONS: These findings illustrate the heterogeneity of the Mexican American population and identify a new group at substantial risk for cardiovascular disease and in need of effective heart disease prevention programs.  (+info)

(3/654) Illness and treatment perceptions of Ethiopian immigrants and their doctors in Israel.

OBJECTIVES: Patient-provider misunderstandings arising from disparate medical and cultural concepts can impede health care among immigrant populations. This study assessed the extent of disagreement and identified the salient problems of communication between Israeli doctors and Ethiopian immigrant patients. METHODS: Semistructured interviews were conducted with 59 Ethiopian immigrants. Self-reports of health status and effectiveness of treatment were compared with evaluations by the primary care physician and supplemented by qualitative data from descriptions of illness, observations of medical visits, informant interviews, and participant observations conducted by the anthropologist. RESULTS: Health status and effectiveness of treatment were rated significantly higher by the doctor than by the patients. Low doctor-patient agreement occurred mainly for illnesses with stress-related or culture-specific associations. Qualitative data suggested that more long-term immigrants may alter their expectations of treatment but continue to experience symptoms that are culturally, but not biomedically, meaningful. CONCLUSIONS: Misunderstandings between immigrant patients and their doctors emerge from the biomedical system's limitations in addressing stress-related illnesses and from culture-based discrepancies in concepts of illness and healing. Including trained translators in medical teams can reduce medical misunderstandings and increase patient satisfaction among immigrant populations.  (+info)

(4/654) Is acculturation a risk factor for early smoking initiation among Chinese American minors? A comparative perspective.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the extent to which Chinese American and white minors differ in age of smoking initiation, and to determine the effect of acculturation on smoking initiation. DESIGN: Cross-sectional telephone surveys. SETTING: Stratified random samples of the state of California, United States. SUBJECTS: 347 Chinese American and 10 129 white adolescents aged 12 through 17 years, from the California Tobacco Survey (1990-93) and the California Youth Tobacco Survey (1994-96). OUTCOME MEASURES: Hazards (risk) of smoking initiation by age, smoking initiation rate, cumulative smoking rate, mean age of smoking initiation, and acculturation status. STATISTICAL METHODS: Life table methods, proportional hazards models, and chi(2) tests. RESULTS: The risk of smoking initiation by age among Chinese American minors was about a third of that among white minors. The risk for Chinese Americans continued to rise even in later adolescence, in contrast to that for whites, which slowed after 15 years of age. Acculturation was associated significantly with smoking onset among Chinese Americans. Acculturation, smoking among social network members, attitudes toward smoking, and perceived benefits of smoking were associated with the difference in hazards of smoking onset between Chinese American minors and their white counterparts. CONCLUSIONS: Chinese American adolescents had a lower level and a different pattern of smoking onset than white adolescents. Levels of acculturation and other known risk factors were associated with the hazards of smoking initiation among Chinese American minors and with the difference in smoking initiation between the Chinese and white adolescents. Tobacco prevention policies, strategies, and programmes for ethnically diverse populations should take acculturation factors into account.  (+info)

(5/654) Beyond artificial, sex-linked distinctions to conceptualize female sexuality: comment on Baumeister (2000)

The authors comment on three aspects of R. F. Baumeister's (2000) theoretical article on female sexuality. Questioning the predominance of nature versus cultural factors in accounting for sexual outcomes for men and women, the authors draw attention to the similarities (as opposed to differences) in the sexual attitudes, behaviors, and responses of men and women, and directly question the suggestion of "controlling" women's sexual attitudes, behaviors, responses, etc. to meet social needs for change.  (+info)

(6/654) Differences in energy, nutrient, and food intakes in a US sample of Mexican-American women and men: findings from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988-1994.

As Mexican-American women and men migrate to the United States and/or become more acculturated, their diets may become less healthy, increasing their risk of cardiovascular disease. Data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1988-1994) were used to compare whether energy, nutrient, and food intakes differed among three groups of Mexican-American women (n = 1,449) and men (n = 1,404) aged 25-64 years: those born in Mexico, those born in the United States whose primary language was Spanish, and those born in the United States whose primary language was English. Percentages of persons who met the national dietary guidelines for fat, fiber, and potassium and the recommended intakes of vitamins and minerals associated with cardiovascular disease were also compared. In general, Mexican Americans born in Mexico consumed significantly less fat and significantly more fiber; vitamins A, C, E, and B6; and folate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium than did those born in the United States, regardless of language spoken. More women and men born in Mexico met the dietary guidelines or recommended nutrient intakes than those born in the United States. The heart-healthy diets of women and men born in Mexico should be encouraged among all Mexican Americans living in the United States, especially given the increasing levels of obesity and diabetes among this rapidly growing group of Americans.  (+info)

(7/654) Recency of immigration, substance use, and sexual behavior among Massachusetts adolescents.

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the relationships between recency of immigration, substance use, and sexual behavior. METHODS: Surveys were conducted with 2635 Massachusetts 8th and 10th graders that allowed comparisons of health behaviors and risk and protective factors among students living in the United States "always," more than 6 years, or 6 years or less. RESULTS: Compared with lifetime residents, immigrant youths (particularly those living in the United States 6 years or less) reported lower lifetime and recent alcohol and marijuana use (P < .001); sexual intercourse rates were similar across groups. However, recent immigrants were most likely to report peer pressures to engage in, and less parental support to avoid, risk behaviors (P < .001). CONCLUSIONS: A window of opportunity exists to provide primary prevention programs in schools to immigrant youths that may reduce adolescent health risk behaviors.  (+info)

(8/654) Acculturation and leisure-time physical inactivity in Mexican American adults: results from NHANES III, 1988-1994.

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the relationship between acculturation and leisure-time physical inactivity among Mexican American adults. METHODS: Using data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, we estimated the prevalence of physical inactivity according to place of birth and language used at home. RESULTS: Spanish-speaking Mexican Americans had a higher prevalence of physical inactivity during leisure time than those who spoke mostly English, independent of place of birth. CONCLUSIONS: Acculturation seems to be positively associated with participation in leisure-time physical activity.  (+info)

This research was conducted to help counseling psychologists be able to better understand Asian international students unique acculturative and adaptive experiences. Because the current literature lacks a specific acculturation scale for Asian international students, developing a proper acculturation scale that represented these students was the significant contribution of this study. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) with 259 participants was used to test the four factor structure of the 33-item Acculturation Scale for Asian International Students (ASAIS), which was based on Berrys (1984, 1990) theory. Reliabilities and validities estimates were also examined. Cluster analysis and Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA) were used to explore acculturation status differences on perceived gain and loss, and coping. The results indicated that the ASAIS had good internal consistency and acceptable reliabilities and validities. In addition, results indicated that there were significant group
The purpose of this study was to examine print literacy, acculturation, and acculturative stress among one-hundred and six Mexican immigrant women participating in a family literacy program. The two hypotheses were: (1.) There is a relationship between (a) print literacy as measured by the Print Literacy Questionnaire and (b) acculturation as measured by the Multidimensional Acculturation Scale, and (2.) There is a relationship between (a) print literacy as measured by the Print Literacy Questionnaire and (b) acculturative stress as measured by the Multidimensional Acculturative Stress Inventory. This study applied canonical correlation and multiple regression analyses. Statistically significant (p|0.05) findings supported the first hypothesis. The findings for the second hypothesis were not significant (p=0.725). Two additional findings for the first hypothesis were: (1.) that adult reading and writing in English related to American acculturation; and (2.) that parents reading
As stated previously, acculturation has been investigated in conjunction with a number of physical, social and psychological variables. In a study of weight concern and body image among southern African American Females, Smith and Omari (2005) hypothesized that there would be a positive relationship between cultural values (levels of acculturation) and Body Mass Index (BMI) in their sample. The premise of their study was that African American women with more traditional values would have higher BMI scores, primarily because it has been reported in the literature that African American women are comfortable with larger body size (Striegel-Moore et al., 1998). The hypothesis was not supported. They found that contrary to their expectations, acculturation was not significantly associated with BMI in African American females. This failure to detect an association between BMI and acculturation led to a question about the latent factor structure of the African American Acculturation Scale (AAAS-R) in ...
This dissertation examines the effect of acculturation on Latino health disparity based on a bi-dimensional model of acculturation. First, the author reviews the literature of acculturation and introduces two models of acculturation: uni-dimensional and bi-dimensional models of acculturation. The author critiques previous studies in public health by pointing out that this scholarship predominantly relied on an uni-dimensional model of acculturation, consequently ignoring bilingual groups, which is currently almost half of the Latino population in the U.S.; Next, this dissertation applied a bi-dimensional model of acculturation in the health disparity discipline and empirically tests the effect of acculturation on Latino health attitudes and behaviors regarding diabetes, obesity, and substance use. First, the comparison among bilinguals, English monolinguals and Spanish monolinguals reveals their differences in terms of their health access, health status, health problem solving capacities, and ...

The objective of this secondary analysis was to examine the role of acculturation and self-reported hypertension in a Mexican-American cohort from Harris County, Texas. Specifically, we examined the acculturation measures of language-based Bidimensional Acculturation Scale (BAS), nativity, and length of United States (U.S) residency. Of 6,229 participants aged 40 and older, 38.0% self-reported hypertension at baseline. Multiple logistic regression was used to estimate the prevalence odds ratios (pOR) for the association of each acculturation measure and hypertension while controlling for confounding. When adjusted for age, gender, body mass index, number of comorbidities, and family history of hypertension, U.S.-born participants were 1.37 times more likely to report having hypertension compared to Mexico-born participants (95% CI: 1.21, 1.55). Similarly, immigrants residing in the U.S. for more than 20 years had an adjusted pOR of 1.40 (95% CI: 1.16, 1.70) as compared to immigrants living in the U.S.
Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates the assimilation and the separation/ethnic competition models of acculturation. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include: how acculturation may affect immigrants socio-economic status as well as their mental and physical health, whether exposure to American mass media promotes acculturation, whether immigrants can maintain both a high acceptance of American cultural values and a high affinity for their ethnic cultural identity, what factors may promote or hinder acculturation, and what influence acculturation may have on immigrants social and political attitudes. Crosstabulation is used in the analyses.. ...
Acculturation has emerged as an independent risk factor for different health practices across immigrant groups. Prompted by evidence of increasing melanoma incidence among Latinos, the present research investigated the impact of acculturation on Latinos sun safety. Data from 496 Latino respondents to the 2005 Health Information National Trends Survey were analyzed with multiple linear regression and structural equation models. Sunscreen use, seeking shade and wearing protective clothing were the primary outcomes, assessed by frequency scales. Acculturation was the primary predictor, assessed by a composite index. The direct, mediated, and moderated effects of acculturation on sun-safe behaviors were investigated in three studies. Hypothesized mediators included health status, education, and social networks; hypothesized moderators included gender, age, region, and health insurance status.; In adjusted models in Study 1, increased acculturation was associated with decreased use of shade or ...

The present study examined the influence of cultural factors in the assessment of African Americans (N = 45) who had suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Following the administration of a neuropsychological test battery and functional outcome measures, participants completed a self-report measure of African American acculturation (African American Acculturation Scale-Short Form; Landrine & Klonoff, 1995). In the first study, hierarchical regression analyses were conducted to evaluate the possible relationship between acculturation and neuropsychological test performance. After controlling for various injury-related (TBI severity, time since injury) and demographic factors (age, sex, and education/occupation), lower levels of acculturation were associated with poorer overall neuropsychological test performance (Overall Test Battery Mean; Rohling, Langhinrichsen-Rohling, & Miller, in press) and lower scores on three of the administered tests (Grooved Pegs, WAIS-R Block Design, and Wisconsin Card
Abstract: The adjustment and acculturation process of single Liberian mothers resettled as refugees in the United States was examined in this qualitative study. Liberian experiences largely have been left out of refugee studies, a field that recently has taken a turn away from a problem-focused, policy-oriented approach to a more culturally aware constructivist approach. The refugees post-immigration experiences, attitudes, and behaviors were the focus of the research. Ten Liberian single mothers who resettled in the US between the years of 2004 and 2006 were interviewed using a semi-structured protocol. Transcripts were created from these interviews that were analyzed by a four person reflecting team. A phenomenological approach was used to structure the transcripts, breaking them down into experiences, behaviors, and attitudes. The structured data was used to create a rich description of Liberian womens acculturation in the US. The reflecting team used the description and the original ...

Background: Professional acculturation is the process by which the values, attitudes, and norms of a professional culture are internalized. The internalization of professional culture leads to both conscious and unconscious acceptance of tenets that guide subsequent organization of knowledge and professional action. Professional nursing competencies establish and outline many of the values, attitudes, and norms that need to be accultured in undergraduate curriculum. Research utilization, both an identified competency and a key professional value, attitude, and norm, is the application of research findings in all individual and organizational elements of nursing practice. As an integral element of safe, effective, and competent nursing care, research utilization has been identified as an important element of professional nursing. Research Purpose: The overall purpose of the dissertation study was to develop an interpretive understanding of the enactment of acculturation to research utilization by

Recent immigrant assimilation literature has highlighted the tremendous heterogeneity that exists within foreign-born and U.S.-born second generation populations-and thus, the importance of a broader generational cohort framework that encompasses nativity, immigrant generation, age at arrival, and parental nativity. Using data from the 2003 California Health Interview Survey, this paper examines generational cohort differences in access to health services among Asian and Latino immigrant adults. Results showed that immigrants arriving in the U.S. as children had better access to services, one exception being middle-aged and older Asians. Individuals arriving in the U.S. as adults were significantly less likely than the third-and-later generation to have a usual source of care, and also had fewer physician visits. Across all cohorts, Latinos fared worse than both Asians and Whites. This study highlights the value of a generational cohort framework-specifically, the importance of age at arrival-in ...
This population-based case-control study showed that breast cancer risk among Hispanic women is heterogeneous and is modified by country of birth, duration of residence in the United States, age at migration to the United States, family migration history, and language usage. Adjustment for differences in the distribution of hormonal and lifestyle factors attenuated the associations with migration patterns in premenopausal women but only partially explained differences in breast cancer risk in postmenopausal women.. This study is the first comprehensive examination of breast cancer risk in Hispanic women in relation to migration history and acculturation. The only previous case-control study of migration patterns and breast cancer risk was conducted in Asian American women ages 20 to 55 years (12). Most of the available data on breast cancer risk in migrant populations derive from migrant studies that relied on routinely collected incidence or mortality data and therefore have only limited ...
This short video about the impact of John Watson (not to be confused with James Watson of DNA structure discovery fame) and his theories of behaviorism on American culture.. Even today, Americans have a strongly-held belief that parents and childhood environment really do matter. This is not to imply that they dont; as the video description states, most psychologists today take a hybrid view of the influence of genetics and environment.. Another interesting note is that John Watson eventually left academia (after the fallout from an affair) for the advertising industry. There, he made lots more money and had considerable impact on American advertising.. ...

An example of the usefulness of this guide is found in Christina Hills paper "Blacks on Daytime Television." Maxine Margoliss "Blaming the ...
Purposes: The purposes of this study were to describe the relationship among demographic variables, level of acculturation, dietary consumption of fat, sugar, fruits and vegetables among Filipino- Americans(FAs) and to explore the predictors of their anthropometric measurements. The role of dietary acculturation and consumption of fat, sugar, fruits, and vegetables amongFAs in the United States (US) remains unclear. Despite the growing numbers of FAs in the US, little is known about their dietary acculturation and fat, sugar, fruits, and vegetable consumption. Methods: The study sample consisted of 128 FAs (N = 128) residing in US. Participants completed the demographics, the Blocks Short Food Frequency Questionnaire (SFFQ), a Short AcculturationScale for Filipino Americans (ASASFA), and the Dietary Acculturation Questionnaire for Filipino Americans (DAQFA). Anthropometric measurements such as weight, height, waist and hip circumferences were also taken. Partial Least Squares (PLS) path ...

This study examines generational patterns of parenting styles, the relationships between parenting styles and adolescent well-being among youth of Mexican origin, and the role of generational parenting style patterns in explaining generational patterns in youth behavior (delinquency and alcohol problems) and psychological well-being (depression and self-esteem). This study uses two waves of data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health). The proportion of teens with permissive parents increased with generation; other parenting styles declined. The rate of youth with behavioral problems increased with generation. Self-esteem improved with generation; depression scores did not. Bivariate generational patterns of behavioral and psychological outcomes are a function of the patterns seen for youth with permissive parents, coupled with the increase in the proportion of permissive parents with each successive generation. In contrast, these outcomes did not worsen with generation
The Sami people are the Natives of northern Scandinavia. The knowledge of the health and living conditions of the Swedish Sami is extremely limited which is in contrast to the large amount of detailed information on health and socioeconomic issues that is available for other circumpolar Natives. The encounter with the western society and the acculturation process has for many native populations had serious health consequences, causing a dramatic increase of lifestyle related diseases such as cancer, diabetes, stroke, obesity and hypertension as well as a dramatic increase of suicide and drug abuse.. The overall objective of this thesis was to investigate the health conditions of the Sami population of Sweden using causes of death and incidences of cancer and cardiovascular diseases (CVD) as health indicators, and to evaluate their possible association with acculturative factors such as assimilation, integration, separation and marginalization.. A Sami population was identified containing a total ...
This cross-sectional, secondary analysis study utilizes data from a prior study of intergenerational substance use among Latina women (n = 316). The authors explored the influence of substance use frequency and type, as well as cultural and socioeconomic factors on attributions about addiction among a predominantly immigrant sample of Latina women. Women who were less proficient in English (an indicator of adoption of the receiving culture in the acculturation process) and more proficient in Spanish (an indicator of heritage-culture retention) endorsed more spiritual model attributions than women who were more proficient in English and less proficient in Spanish. Women who were more proficient in Spanish more frequently endorsed the disease attribution model. Alcohol, marijuana use, and nonmedical sedative use were linked with spiritual, moral character, and disease attribution models, respectively. Participants reporting higher education levels indicated less agreement with the moral/character ...
The purpose of the present study was to extend understanding of factors related to the college adjustment of Asian and Asian Americans. The study was based on the SCCT model of well-being and included an exploratory focus on culture-specific variables. Data were collected from 122 undergraduate college students who self-identified as Asian, Asian Americans, or Pacific Islander. The present findings are generally consistent with previous studies of the SCCT model of satisfaction, providing empirical support for the cross-cultural validity of the SCCT model with Asian American students. The predictive model accounted for a substantial percentage (41-44%) of variance in the college adjustment indicators, academic and social domain satisfaction. The present study extends the findings of previous studies by showing the differential utility of self-efficacy and social support in predicting domain satisfaction. Results from both quantitative and qualitative data highlighted the importance of social ...
As the United States population approaches a minority majority, the need to address educational inequities is intensified, especially for Latina/o students, who are among the fastest growing ethnic minority group across the United States and at four-year colleges and universities. Concerns for national security, human capital development, innovation, and equity also demand increased representation of domestic under-represented groups in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. This quantitative dissertation comprises three studies that are informed by six years of semester-by-semester student-level data from six large, public, doctoral granting, research-intensive universities located in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions. First, I examine differences in STEM degree attainment among Latinos at the intersections of Latino ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic status and find evidence for the need to target STEM intervention efforts for Latinos by gender. Second, I explore ...
Nearly 13% of Hispanic adults have type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and this population is 1.5 times more likely to die from the disease than non Hispanic Whites [1, 2]. However, among Mexican Americans, the largest Hispanic subpopulation, prevalence rates are even higher and are approaching 14% amongst adults 20 years of age and older [3]. For Mexican-American women, the threat of diabetes dominates their daily lives as they have higher prevalence rates than their male counterparts, and are more likely to experience risk factors such as obesity, being overweight, and having sedentary habits, compared to other women in general [4].. These factors and the complexity of diabetes and diabetes management present difficulties for both clinicians and patients. One of the most critical elements of diabetes self-management, but most challenging behaviors to tackle, is diet. The ways of food (foodways) are deeply entrenched in most cultures, including the Mexican-American culture. Therefore, diet is one of the ...
The study, published online Sept. 15 in the American Journal of Psychiatry, raises vexing questions about the effectiveness of campaigns designed to improve health literacy. This "disease like any other" approach, supported by medicine and mental health advocates, had been seen as the primary way to reduce widespread stigma in the United States. "Prejudice and discrimination in the U.S. arent moving," said IU sociologist Bernice Pescosolido, a leading researcher in this area. "In fact, in some cases, it may be increasing. Its time to stand back and rethink our approach." Stigma, the well-documented reluctance by many to socialize or work with people who have a mental or substance abuse disorder, is considered a major obstacle to effective treatment for many Americans who experience these devastating illnesses. It can produce discrimination in employment, housing, medical care and social relationships, and negatively impact the quality of life for these individuals, their families and friends. ...

It wasnt so long ago that a practice like mindfulness would have been confined to the fringes of American society, deemed too New Age-y for mass consumption. In a relatively short period of time, though, we at MindBodyGreen have seen an explosion in the popularity of mindfulness, and not just among yoga teachers!. Thats why I was so excited to have Congressman Tim Ryan agree to talk with me over email about his advocacy for mindfulness. In his sixth term serving Ohios 17th and, more recently, 13th congressional districts in the House of Representatives, Congressman Ryan earlier this year released A Mindful Nation, a book that describes his personal journey to mindfulness and how the practice is linked to traditional American values.. Ryan, who was the youngest Democrat in Congress when he was entered office in 2003, told me about his mindfulness practice, the reactions his colleagues have had to the practice, and what he and others can do to make mindfulness a basic tenet of American health ...
Previous research suggests that culture influences how we display emotion. Asian Americans generally place a greater emphasis on emotional moderation than European Americans. Most studies have used self-report measures, which may not be accurate measures of display rules. We added an observational measure in the laboratory and a peer-report measure. Asian American and European American college students observed emotion-eliciting film clips while being videotaped. Their facial expressions during the films and peer-report measures were compared to self-report measures of expressivity. Level of acculturation was also measured to examine its effects on several measures of emotional expressiveness. Asian Americans rated displaying emotion as less appropriate than European Americans; however, these cultural differences were not found for the observational measures. There was no significant relationship between self-report and observational measures for negative emotions, and acculturation affected ...
In 1935, Barbara Morgan, a recent arrival in Depression-era New York, reinvented her career as an artist when she abandoned painting and adopted the medium of photography. In the four-and-a-half decades that followed, Morgan witnessed the remaining years of the Great Depression, World War II, the Korean Conflict, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, and Three Mile Island. This dissertation will trace the photographic oeuvre of Morgan as she responded to these events both directly and indirectly, while simultaneously tracking the important artistic and cultural trends of each decade. The first chapter discusses Morgans early photomontage work, in which she pushed the boundaries of American photography while exploring diverse metaphors for metropolitan splendor and urban isolation as well as the anxieties of the Great Depression and hope for a better future. Morgans 1941 book Martha Graham: Sixteen Dances in Photographs anchors the second chapter. The influential dance photographs that comprise this ...
In a book deeply impressive in its reach while also deeply embedded in its storied setting, bestselling historian Douglass Shand-Tucci explores the nature and expression of sexual identity at Americas oldest university during the years of its greatest influence. The Crimson Letter follows the gay experience at Harvard in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, focusing upon students, faculty, alumni, and hangers-on who struggled to find their place within the confines of Harvard Yard and in the society outside.Walt Whitman and Oscar Wilde were the two dominant archetypes for gay undergraduates of the later nineteenth century. One was the robust praise-singer of American democracy, embraced at the start of his career by Ralph Waldo Emerson; the other was the Oxbridge aesthete whose visit to Harvard in 1882 became part of the universitys legend and lore, and whose eventual martyrdom was a cautionary tale. Shand-Tucci explores the dramatic and creative oppositions and tensions between the Whitmanic and

Like Gerardo, though, I was struck by a sense that the sociologists and historians were, at times, talking past one another. There was a slipperiness to these interdisciplinary conversations that seemed almost inevitable from my perspective. A few presenters rattled off lists of the scholars that shaped their work. The historians lists were predictable and familiar to me (a historian), while the sociologists lists were foreign. Thats the product of our training in separate departments; we read different things in graduate school and then write in the spirit of those scholars whose work inspired us. That is, to a certain extent, inevitable. But Gerardo issued a plea in the last session of the conference for all of us to be more aware of the translation work we need to do in our scholarship: we need to tell our colleagues in other fields not only what weve discovered but how it speaks to conversations within our own disciplines ...

Reviewed by William E. Metcalf, Yale University ([email protected]) Version at BMCR home site. Preview This wide-ranging work attempts to survey the whole of ancient money-emphatically not just coinage, for we have moved well beyond Finleys idea that cash constituted money in the ancient world (quoted here, p. 9 and 92). In seven chapters of unequal coverage, the author leads up to an epilogue on "monetary culture.". Monetization is generally taken as an indicator of acculturation; as a consequence its definition is as important as our ability to describe a "monetized" culture. von Reden expands the definition by arguing from the inclusion of bullion, jewelry etc. in early coin hoards that these objects had monetary function as well, and that monetization would have expanded with or without the invention of ...
Latinos are disproportionately represented among those diagnosed with HIV and Latino adolescents are at risk for engaging in sexual behaviors that can lead to HIV. However, data regarding HIV prevention interventions for Latino adolescents, as distinct from other ethnic groups, have not been published to date. This K Award will conduct an initial study of a family-based intervention specifically for Latino families. With the support of a NIMH Minority Supplement Award, Dr. Lescano has adapted a family-based intervention from a multi-site trial for non-minority youth. Using a qualitative approach, Dr. Lescano has added to the intervention family context issues relevant to Latinos such as acculturation, religiosity, gender role and sexual socialization, parent-child communication, and monitoring practices. The initial phase of the K Award will be a run-through of the adapted family-based intervention with three cohorts (8 families per group) to further assess participant reaction and ...
05) compared to other Latinos. The multilinear regression showed that both age and gender (p<.05), percentage of untreated decayed teeth (p<.001), number of replaced missing teeth (p<.001), and attachment loss (p<.001) were significant. Compared with the other Latino immigrants in our sample, Mexican immigrants have significantly better oral health status. This confirms the epidemiologic paradox previously found in comparisons of Mexicans with whites and African Americans. In this case of oral health status the paradox also occurs between Mexicans and other Latinos. Therefore, when conducting oral health studies of Latinos, more consideration needs to be given to differences within Latino subgroups, such as their country of origin and their unique ethnic and cultural characteristics ...

Diabetes as the underlying or contributing cause of death. Overall, Cuban Americans had the highest proportion of diabetes-related deaths for which diabetes was the underlying cause of death (44%), followed by Puerto Ricans (39%) and Mexican Americans (37%). In all three Hispanic subgroups, the proportion of diabetes-related deaths for which diabetes was recorded as the underlying cause of death was similar in men and women.. Our analysis found that after diabetes, heart disease (31%) followed by cancer (8%) and stroke (6%) were the most frequent primary underlying causes of death in all diabetes-related deaths in both sexes in all three ethnic groups. For all three Hispanic subgroups, heart disease was the underlying cause of death in approximately 31% of all diabetes-related deaths. In all three Hispanic subgroups, cancer was the underlying cause of death in 7% to 8% of all diabetes-related deaths, and stroke was the underlying cause of death in 4% to 6% of all diabetes- related ...
The study showed that patients of Mexican descent who breastfed for 12 months or more were more than twice as likely to have triple negative breast cancer. They were younger at diagnosis and younger during their first full-term pregnancy. Patients who had three or more children were also more likely to have triple negative breast cancer. Martinez said that it is important to note that prior studies, mainly in non-Hispanic white women, have shown that these reproductive characteristics reduce the risk of breast cancer overall, possibly due to effects on the more common, better prognosis, of luminal A cancers. ...
This autoethnography is about a Chinese Americans experiences from early childhood to recent years, and it relates immigration from China to acculturation into American society. It is my story, presented as a scholarly personal narrative of my life experiences beginning with my birth in 1948 as an American citizen born on Chinese soil; living in America throughout the latter half of the 20th century as a Chinese American immigrant; and ending with my thoughts and reflections on my current status as a 21st century "model minority" American citizen. This autoethnography spans the time period from the late 1940s to the present, narrating my heretofore untold story of revolution, survival, transoceanic migration, discrimination, hardships, identity crisis, coping strategies, hopes, dreams, and accomplishments. It is ultimately also the scholarly life narrative of anyone who has been "in my shoes," connected by history, Chinese cultural heritage, and the circumstances which forced their immigration ...
The inaugural volume in the Issues of Diversity in Clinical Neuropsychology series, Principles of Neuropsychological Assessment with Hispanics sheds needed light on challenges specific to assessing members of this growing, diverse population. Beginning with evidence-based findings revealing intricate nonlinear relationships between culture and the brain, Antolin M. Llorente and a team of eight experts explore finely nuanced constructs of culture, ethnicity, race, and language among Hispanics in neurobehavioral and neurocognitive terms. The authors ably balance theory, research, and practical applications, and give ample space to ethical issues in the assessment of Latinos, indicating the ongoing need for bias-free procedures so that evaluations{u2014}and the treatment interventions that they generate{u2014}are accurate and valid. In-depth coverage of: Acculturation and assimilation Language, bilingualism, and multilingualism Cultural and ethnic identity Patterns of migration and immigration as ...

The events of 9/11 had a profound impact on American society, but they had an even more lasting effect on Muslims living in the United States. Once practically invisible, they suddenly found themselves overexposed. By describing how Islam in America began as a strange cultural object and is gradually sinking into familiarity, this book illuminates the growing relationship between Islam and American culture as Muslims find a homeland in America. Rich in ethnographic detail, it is an up-close account of how Islam takes its American shape. The book traces American Muslims progress from outsiders to natives and from immigrants to citizens. Drawing on the philosophies of Simmel and Heidegger, the book develops a novel sociological approach and offers insights into the civil rights activities of Muslim Americans, their increasing efforts at interfaith dialogue, and the recent phenomenon of Muslim ethnic comedy. It is both a portrait of American Islam and a groundbreaking study of what it means to feel at
ATLANTA, May 5, 2015 - The first national study on Hispanic health risks and leading causes of death in the United States by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that similar to non-Hispanic whites (whites), the two leading causes of death in Hispanics are heart disease and cancer. Fewer Hispanics than whites die from the 10 leading causes of death, but Hispanics had higher death rates than whites from diabetes and chronic liver disease and cirrhosis. They have similar death rates from kidney diseases, according to the new Vital Signs report.. Health risk can vary by Hispanic subgroup. For example, nearly 66 percent more Puerto Ricans smoke than Mexicans. Health risk also varies partly by whether Hispanics were born in the U.S. or in another country. Hispanics are almost three times as likely to be uninsured as whites. Hispanics in the U.S. are on average nearly 15 years younger than whites, so taking steps now to prevent disease could mean longer, healthier lives for ...

return to Lines of Inquiry). In 1960, presidential candidates Richard M. Nixon (Republican) and John F. Kennedy (Democrat) agreed to face each other in a series of debates. For the first time in American history voters were able to see their presidential candidates debate one another. Television, then in its infancy, was quickly becoming a mainstay of American life and culture. With the 1960 debates, it proved to be an integral part of American politics as well. Today, we cannot imagine a political campaign without television advertisements and/or debates. But in 1960, few realized the impact the medium would have on the future of American politics. History in the Making: The Presidential Debates takes you back to the historic 1960 presidential debates and provides an analysis of the event. It would be useful for classes on American History, American Culture, Political Science, Civics, and Communications. It is appropriate for middles school, high school and college..

Photo by David Stansbury. The origins of Freemasonry remain obscure. The secret society traces its roots to Solomons Temple, but more likely it arose out of the practices of medieval stonemasons guilds. Modern Freemasonry dates back to seventeenth-century England and was well established in North America by the time of the American Revolution. Indeed, during the new republics first fifty years, Masonic symbolism seemed to permeate American culture almost as Christian imagery permeated the art of the Middle Ages.. Following a period of decline during the second quarter of the nineteenth century, American Freemasonry began to regain its popularity after the Civil War. Freemasons and the members of their families incorporated Masonic motifs into a wide variety of decorative and household objects-woodcarvings, pottery, furniture, quilts. These are characterized by a more Victorian and personal interpretation than earlier Masonic objects, which tended to be formal and adhere strictly to ...
Last night, as I watched the announcement of the George Zimmerman jury, I closed my eyes in prayer.. I gave thanks for the jurors and their service - having served on a jury in the recent past, I can honestly say it is the most intellectually and emotionally draining experience Ive ever encountered. I prayed for the family of Trayvon Martin and for the questions they still have that were not answered through the trial process. But most importantly, I prayed for a world in which we act as if race no longer matters.. Race matters, not because we live in an overtly racist society any longer. Race matters because racism is structural, hidden, and pervasive. The events of the past two weeks highlight the structural racism that is still present in American culture. The Supreme Courts gutting of the Voting Rights Act and the medias attempt to create division among people of racial and ethnic minorities highlights the glue that allows racism to continue to be structural, hidden, and pervasive: ...
Clarke has called the Black Lives Matter movement "black slime" that "needs to be eradicated from the American society and the American culture," "garbage" and a "subversive movement" that seeks to overthrow the government, and said that the movement is driven by "an ideology of victimhood with a list of grievances that do not exist." He has dismissed concerns about police brutality by saying that "black criminal abuse, black criminal brutality" is "the real brutality going on in the United States." The real problem in "the American ghetto," he has said, is "modern liberalism.". Clarke said that Michael Brown, the black teenager shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri, was a "co-conspirator in his own demise" because he "chose thug life." After Sandra Bland, a black woman who had been thrown to the ground during a traffic stop, died in police custody, Clarke went on Fox News to chastise her. He said that he would have used even more force against a group of black teenagers who were thrown to the ...

Why is there retaliation against people who only want to be accepted? Fear of people who are different is especially prevalent today. In the U.S. immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to American culture and will only serve as a burden. LGBT individuals are accused of trying to pervert America. The outrage against these groups may be attributed to the fear of losing power among majority groups. As minority groups increase in size, the majoritys opinion holds less influence. There are two pathways from this point. Opinions and ideas from the different groups intermingle to produce a higher level of thought. This would be preferable as everyone benefits from this route, however it is not always the case. Often the majority will continue to cling on to their old ways, desiring the stability it produced in their lives ...
QFest, the citys annual festival dedicated to big-screen representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, is taking a cue from the stories and characters populating this years films: bigger, bolder, faster and fiercer. Among the topical highlights are gay best friends, high school angst, dark S&M underworlds, Proposition 8, colorful senior citizens and a truly Divine drag queen. The 2013 edition boasts 60 films in 30 programs at nine venues, including Rice Cinema, the Houston Museum of African American Culture, Galveston Artist Residency, Discovery Green, Aurora Picture Show, Asia Society Texas Center, Alamo Drafthouse (Mason Road and Vintage Park) and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The mainstreams attempt to capture some sort of generalized or average experience leaves a lot of people out. Fourplay includes a quartet of shorts (including one set in Austin) that find its gay and straight characters in unusual, explicit - ultimately cathartic - sexual encounters. The

Establishing churches, societies, newspapers, and other institutions, they have built communities and have developed an enlarged sense of peoplehood. Thus, ethnicity (although related to nationalist movements in countries of origin) in large part has emerged from the immigrants attempt to cope with life in this pluralist society. While they cannot transplant their Old Country ways intact to the Dakota prairie or the Chicago slums, theirs is a selective adaptation, in which they have taken from American culture that which they needed and have kept from their traditional culture that which they valued. During the 1930s, when cultural democracy was in vogue, pluralist ideas were popular. Again during the period of the "new ethnicity" of the ...
This course explores the ways in which Arabs and the Middle East have been represented in Hollywood Cinema. Through an examination of Hollywood films over the last century, such as "The Sheik" (1921), "The Ten Commandments" (1956), and "The Siege" (1998), a shift in stereotypes is traced from the rich Arab sheik with harems of women to the Arab terrorist. Through this process, the course examines the connection between representations and the historical-political moment in which they are created and disseminated, from European colonization of the Arab world to 9/11. How have international relations, political events, and foreign policy influenced representations in Hollywood filmmaking? How do representations in film and media become part of American culture? Through examining these questions, we will develop an analysis of the changing landscape of race, gender, and American identity in film. We will also examine the counter-current of filmmaking and other genres, such as independent low budget ...
Pumpkins belong to the Cucurbitaceae family and got its name from the Greek word "pepon" or "large melon." The humble fruit originated in Central America and has become an integral part of the modern American culture. Recent research proves that the pumpkin, in all its forms, flesh, seeds, and oil has the power to alter the disease processes in the body.. With just 26 calories per 100 gram, the pumpkin is low in calories, has no saturated fat or cholesterol and is rich in dietary fiber. Dieticians recommend the pumpkin for those in a weight loss diet and for those trying to control their cholesterol intake. The high fiber content is effective in treating gastrointestinal disorders like constipation and indigestion. The fiber helps in lowering LDL cholesterol levels in the blood and also regulates the blood sugar levels, which, in turn, helps those with diabetes.. The bright orange of the pumpkin is due to the high level of carotenoids present in them. Carotenoids are scavengers of free radicals ...
States are jumping in, with loan repayment or grant programs under way or proposed in Kansas, Maine, Missouri, North Dakota, Texas and elsewhere.. In Iowa, students at the state s veterinary school formed Vsmart, which barnstorms county fairs and 4-H meetings to entice teenagers to become rural veterinarians.. And in Oklahoma, State Representative Don Armes, Republican of Faxon, has introduced a bill offering tax breaks to large-animal veterinarians. Mr. Armes, a cattleman, knows the shortage firsthand, especially after one Friday last summer when a heifer struggled to deliver a large calf.. I called six different veterinarians and could not get any of them, Mr. Armes said. We lost the calf. Almost lost the heifer. The dearth of food-animal veterinarians (the shortage is not as critical for horses) reflects seismic shifts in farming, veterinary medicine, the economy and American culture. Money is critical when veterinary students graduate $100,000 in debt. While some say salaries can be the ...
well.. this is a piece done for 21C - were just in the final phases of setting it up as a quarterly, and julian Laverdiere is one of the people who designed the cover for the new issue. He was, along with Paul Myoda, and also one of the principal folks involved with designing up the Towers of Light/Tribute in Light Memorial for the World Trade Center victims. Like Maya Lins 1982 Vietnam Veterans Memorial - the Towers... sought to commemorate a dilemma of American culture - a dilemma usually implies a situation that requires a choice between options that are or seem equally unfavorable or mutually exclusive. One monument was about permanence and the American aspiration to monumentalism. The other, made of light, was about transparency and impermanence. Light and text - permanence and impermanence - these are issues that info culture faces - in the tradition of Virilio, this is certainly no Albert Speers with lights intimating a 1000 Year Reich, but then again, hey... under the Bush Admin. ...
European security officials are especially concerned about reports that al-Qaeda is recruiting and training Western operatives who have "clean" criminal records and have the ability to travel freely and blend in with European and American cultures.. In Norway, for example, an ethnic Norwegian convert to militant Islam who has received terrorist training from al-Qaedas offshoot in Yemen, is awaiting orders to carry out an attack on the West, officials from three European security agencies said on June 25.. European officials have confirmed that the man is "operational," meaning he has completed his training and is about to receive a target. Although the terrorist-in-waiting is believed to still be in Yemen, even if he is found he cannot be extradited: under Norwegian law it is not a crime to attend a terrorist training camp.. The London-based newspaper Sunday Times, quoting intelligence services, published a story on July 1 that said the Norwegian jihadist had been trained by Al-Qaeda in the ...

Introduction: Population-based estimates of cardiac dysfunction and clinical heart failure (HF) remain undefined among Hispanic/Latino adults. Hypothesis: Among Hispanic/Latino adults, prevalence of clinical HF and subclinical cardiac dysfunction is high.. Methods: Adult participants of Hispanic/Latino origin were enrolled into the Echocardiographic Study of Latinos (ECHO-SOL). Left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) was defined as an ejection fraction (EF) less than 50%; left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) was defined using the Redfield and American Society of Echocardiography criteria. Baseline diagnosis of clinical HF was defined according to self-report; and those with cardiac dysfunction without clinical HF were characterized as having subclinical or unrecognized cardiac dysfunction.. Results: Of the 1818 participants (mean age 56.4 years; 42.6% male) enrolled in ECHO-SOL, 52.7% had some form of cardiac dysfunction. The prevalence of LVSD was 3.6%, while LVDD was detected in ...
Downloadable! Because Latinos comprise a large and growing share of the low-skilled labor force in the U.S., Latinos may be disproportionately affected by minimum wage laws. We compare the effects of minimum wage laws on employment and earnings among Hispanic immigrants and natives compared with non-Hispanic whites and blacks. We focus on adults who have not finished high school and on teenagers, groups likely to earn low wages. Conventional economic theory predicts that higher minimum wages lead to higher hourly earnings among people who are employed but lower employment rates. Data from the Current Population Survey during the period 1994?2005 indicate that there is a significant disemployment effect of higher minimum wages on Latino teenagers, although it is smaller for foreign- than native-born Latinos. Adult Latino immigrants are less affected by minimum wage laws than other low-education natives. We investigate whether skill levels and undocumented status help explain these findings.

Aim. This study evaluated the influence of somatostatin receptor 2 (SSTR2) polymorphisms on measures of glucose homeostasis in the Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Family Study (IRAS-FS). SSTR2 is a G protein-coupled receptor which, in response to somatostatin, mediates inhibition of insulin, glucagon and growth hormone release, and thus may affect glucose homeostasis.. Methods. Ten SNPs spanning the gene were chosen using a SNP density selection algorithm and genotyped on 1425 Hispanic-American individuals from 90 families in the IRAS-FS. These families comprised two samples (Set 1 and Set 2) which were analyzed individually and as a combined set. Single SNP tests of association were performed for four glucose homeostasis measures: insulin sensitivity (SI), acute insulin response (AIR), disposition index (DI) and fasting glucose (GFAST) using generalized estimating equations (GEE1).. Results. The SSTR2 locus was encompassed by a single LD block (D=0.91-1.00, r2=0.09-0.97) which contained ...
Shonnie Pochardt, whose life and death is highlighted in Wheelwrights book, discovered a lump in her breast years before she was diagnosed. But, as her family told The Denver Post in 2003, her doctor told her she was too young to have breast cancer. Since the genetic mutation has been documented, the awareness among physicians has grown, said Angela Bedard, a genetic counselor and head of the oncology department at the San Luis Valley Regional Medical Center in Alamosa.. "The knowledge is growing and women at younger ages are being sent for screening," Bedard said.. Now, it is often the women themselves who arent acknowledging the risks.. "We still see women of the San Luis Valley being diagnosed at later stages," in their disease, Bedard said. "These women are just not doing the screening at rates that are needed." All women need mamograms and cancer screening, but even among those whose family history increases their risk, there is resistance, she said.. Quirk of heritage. Cost is a factor. ...
One of the biggest obstacles for Latino patients during a neuropsychological assessment is that often it can be the first test theyve taken - in their life.. "In Latino communities, many people are not familiar with testing. Its done more often now in Latino American countries - but older Latino patients with low education may have never taken a test, and those with higher education may have just taken one test during their entire academic career - at the end of high school," says Quiroz. "Test taking for the first time ever - it is definitely anxiety provoking. Also, the cultural differences can impact the way that individuals from different cultures approach a testing situation.". Another disadvantage for the Latino community is that some neuropsychology assessments require reading and writing skills that many Latino patients from a low socio-economic status with no formal education do not have.. Patients from different cultures can also present with different cultural beliefs and awareness ...

Tony Graf, Vietnam War veteran and Hispanic-American, came to Goodfellow Aug. 29 to share his story for Hispanic Heritage month.. Hispanic Heritage Month begins Sept. 15 and runs through Oct. 15. It is a time to recognize the contributions that Hispanic and Latino Americans have given to the U.S. and to celebrate the Hispanic and Latino-Americans culture.. Hispanic Heritage Month originated in 1968 as a week instead of a month. President Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed the week that included Sept. 15 and Sept. 16 as Hispanic Heritage Week. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan changed it to a month long.. LBJ chose Sept. 15 as the start because five Latin American countries; Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua celebrate their independence on that day. He also chose Sept. 16 in honor of Mexicos independence day. Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence Sept. 16.. Graf was born in the city of Bergs Mill, Texas, in a predominantly Hispanic community. He is the grandson of ...

Our findings present a strong case that the high prevalence of diabetic retinopathy in Latinos is due in part to genes of Native American origin," said Xiaoyi Gao, associate professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a corresponding author on the study.. Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes that affects blood vessels in the retina. Latinos are almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with diabetes than non-Hispanic Whites and have a higher prevalence of diabetic retinopathy. While several lifestyle and dietary factors have been blamed for higher rates of diabetes among Latinos, Gao and his colleagues wanted to see if genetic ancestry was associated with the development of diabetic retinopathy.. Latinos are a diverse group of populations with varying blends of Native American, African and European ancestry. Gao and his colleagues analyzed DNA from participants in the Los Angeles Latino Eye Study (LALES), the largest population-based ...

Hispanic Americans face greater challenges in obtaining a secure retirement than the U.S. population at large, according to a new report, Hispanics and Retirement: Challenges and Opportunities. Compared to other Americans, Hispanics are more likely to confront a low level of retirement preparation, low access to employer-sponsored retirement plans, low levels of personal savings and inadequate financial literacy, according to the not-for-profit Hispanic Institute and the Americans for Secure Retirement (ASR) coalition.. The report concludes that Hispanic Americans need to consider multiple retirement vehicles to supplement Social Security and to bridge the gap in access to employer plans. While our research found that Hispanics face greater challenges in preparing for retirement than the average population, with the right tools to properly prepare for retirement, these obstacles can be overcome, says Gus West, board of directors chair for the Hispanic Institute.. Significant findings of the ...

The campaign to immunize children to protect against the cancer-causing human papillomavirus (HPV) has never quite gone mainstream.. And new research from University of Utah College of Nursing Assistant Professor and Huntsman Cancer Institute investigator Deanna Kepka, Ph.D., M.P.H., reveals just how difficult it might be to meet national objectives for herd immunity.. In a paper released in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, Jan. 14, Kepka and her co-principal investigator, medical geographer Kevin Henry, found that vaccination rates for girls are highest in high-poverty, homogeneous Hispanic communities.. Using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC) 2011 and 2012 annual National Immunization Survey-Teen, Kepka and Henry reported 69 percent of Hispanic girls between 13 and 17 years old had initiated the three-dose vaccine. In contrast, girls living in majority white, non-Hispanic communities had the lowest rate of HPV vaccine initiation - 50 percent. ...
While not itself life-threatening, ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) can progress to invasive disease if untreated, and confers an increased risk of future breast cancer. We investigated knowledge of DCIS among a cohort of English- and Spanish-speaking Latina and English-speaking non-Latina white women previously treated for DCIS. We examined knowledge of DCIS with four true/false statements about risk of invasive disease, breast cancer recurrence, and prognosis. For each knowledge statement, we modeled the odds of a correct answer by language-ethnicity (English-speaking Latinas, Spanish-speaking Latinas, and English-speaking whites) adjusting for demographics, health history, and treatment factors. Of 710 participants, 52 % were English-speaking whites, 21 % English-speaking Latinas, and 27 % Spanish-speaking Latinas. Less than half (41 %) of participants were aware that DCIS is not life-threatening and only 32 % knew that surgical treatment choice does not impact mortality; whereas two-thirds ...

NORTH CAROLINA PRAMS FACT SHEET October 2010 North Carolina Latina Maternal Health 2004- 2007 N. C. Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System ( PRAMS) North Carolina has a sizable Latino population. Since 1990, the size of the Latino population has more than quadrupled in the state. According to 2007 estimates, North Carolinas resident Latino population was 637,379; representing approximately 7 percent of the states population. Over half ( 52%) of the Latino population falls in the childbearing ages of 15 to 44, compared with only 41 percent of the non- Latino residents of the state. 1 Births to Latina mothers have also risen substantially during this time period. In 1990, Latinos accounted for less than 2 percent ( 1.68%) of all resident births. By 2007, Latinos comprised approximately 17 percent of all North Carolina resident births. The overall birth rate per 1,000 for Latina mothers ages 15- 44 in North Carolina in 2007 was 167.5, compared with a rate of 62.2 for non- Latina women. 2 ...
By Dr. Jose Castillo-Mancilla. Hispanic/Latinos are the fastest growing minority ethnic group in the United States, accounting for 17 percent of the current population. This is projected to increase to 31 percent by 2060. As we celebrate the National Latino AIDS Awareness Day, it is time to think about how HIV/AIDS affects the Hispanic/Latino community in the US and what can you do to stop it.. The CDC indicates that more than 95,000 U.S. Hispanic/Latinos have died of HIV/AIDS since the beginning of the epidemic, and that this disease continues to affect us disproportionately. About 20 percent of the new HIV infections occur in individuals of Hispanic/Latino ethnicity, both men and women, and the lifetime likelihood of being diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in is higher for Hispanic/Latinos compared to whites. This also translates into a much more advanced disease stage once the diagnosis is made, which is fueled by factors such as lack of healthcare access, health illiteracy, poverty, stigma and ...
Approach and Results-We studied 8367 Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos participants who were 45 to 74 years of age. Sleep symptoms were examined with the self-reported Sleep Health Questionnaire. SA was assessed using an in-home sleep study. Systolic blood pressure was measured in all extremities to compute the ankle-brachial index. PAD was defined as ankle-brachial index ,0.90 in either leg. Multivariable logistic regression was used to investigate the association between moderate-to-severe SA, defined as apnea-hypopnea index ≥15, and the presence of PAD. Analyses were adjusted for covariates. The prevalence of PAD was 4.7% (n=390). The mean apnea-hypopnea index was significantly higher among adults with PAD compared with those without (11.1 versus 8.6 events/h; P=0.046). After adjusting for covariates, moderate-to-severe SA was associated with a 70% increase in the odds of PAD (odds ratio, 1.7; 95% confidence interval, 1.1-2.5; P=0.0152). This association was not modified by ...
Venous blood was drawn from 35 pregnant Hispanic women living in Brownsville, Texas, and matched cord blood was collected at birth. Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry was used to measure concentrations of 55 individual PAHs or groups of PAHs. Results indicate that these women and their fetuses were regularly exposed to multiple PAHs at comparatively low concentrations, with levels in cord blood generally exceeding levels in paired maternal blood. While the possibility of related adverse effects on the fetus is uncertain, these exposures in combination with socioeconomically-disadvantaged and environmentally-challenging living conditions raise legitimate public health concerns.

Latinos are the fastest growing minority population in the United States (U.S.) and have the worst access to health care of any ethnic group. The chronic disease of diabetes is twice as common in adult Latinos as in non-Latino whites, and the risk of death related to diabetes is twofold. Reasons for this disparity have yet to be clearly identified. This study had two purposes: 1) to explore cultural beliefs regarding health-care seeking behaviors in Puerto Ricans with diabetes who live in South Florida; and 2) to examine Puerto Ricans perceptions about their health-care providers. The cultural phenomena of interest were familism, religiosity, spirituality, use of ethnomedicine, and perception of ethnic concordance of health-care provider. Numerous studies have examined these phenomena with other Latino groups, but none have specifically focused on Puerto Ricans. An overarching goal of the study was to contribute to the knowledge base on a particular health disparity--diabetes. Using a narrative inquiry

Puerto Ricans and people of Puerto Rican descent have participated as members of the United States Armed Forces in every conflict in which the United States has been involved since World War I. One of the consequences of the Spanish-American War was that Puerto Rico was annexed by the United States in accordance with the terms of the Treaty of Paris of 1898, ratified on December 10, 1898. On January 15, 1899, the military government changed the name of Puerto Rico to Porto Rico (On May 17, 1932, the U.S. Congress changed the name back to "Puerto Rico"). On March 21, 1915, the first shots by the United States in World War I were fired by the Porto Rico Regiment of Infantry from El Morro Castle at a German ship in San Juan Bay. U.S. Citizenship was imposed upon Puerto Ricans as a result of the 1917 Jones-Shafroth Act (the Puerto Rican House of Delegates rejected US citizenship) and were expected to serve in the military. Puerto Ricans who resided in the island were assigned to the "Porto Rico ...

Racial/ethnic disparities in the incidence of HIV/AIDS among children have been documented since 1981--1986, when 78% of children with AIDS were black or Hispanic (1). These racial/ethnic disparities have been reflected in rates of perinatal HIV infection. Although the total number of annual perinatal HIV infections in the United States has decreased approximately 90% since 1991 (3) and the findings in this report indicate a continued decrease during 2004--2007, racial/ethnic disparities persist. Of all reported diagnoses of perinatal HIV infection during 2004--2007, 85% were in children who were black or Hispanic, and rates were several-fold higher among black and Hispanic children than among white children. To eliminate perinatal transmission and racial/ethnic disparities, continued measures are needed, including primary HIV prevention for women, reproductive health and family planning for women with HIV infection, and prenatal care and early treatment with antiretroviral medications for ...
Scientific, peer-reviewed Dermatology article, indexed with MEDLINE/PubMed: Treatment of Moderate to Severe Acne Vulgaris in a Hispanic Population: A Post-Hoc Analysis of Efficacy and Tolerability of Clindamycin Phosphate 1.2%/Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% Gel : Background: Acne in Hispanics is an increasing problem, presenting unique challenges. Although combination therapy is now a standard of care in acne, concerns exist with the increased potential irritation and dryness in this population and the potential for hyperpigmentation. There is a paucity of clinical studies that evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of acne medications in Hispanics. Methods: A post-hoc analysis of efficacy and cutaneous tolerability in 458 Hispanic subjects receiving clindamycin phosphate 1.2%/BPO 2.5% gel, individual active ingredients and vehicle from two 12-week multicenter double-blind studies that enrolled 2813 subjects with moderate to severe acne. Results: Median reductions in inflammatory lesions, noninflammatory,

There are two types of CAH. The first called Classical CAH which is usually detected through prenatal testing or diagnosed in early childhood. When the pituitary gland senses there is insufficient cortisol in the bloodstream, it releases a hormone called ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone). This, in turn, stimulates the adrenals to produce more cortisol. The enzyme 21-hydroxylase is needed to convert a precursor molecule called 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) into cortisol, but those with CAH lack sufficient amounts of 21-hydroxylase causing the pituitary gland to pump out more ACTH when it senses the need for cortisol. The adrenals convert an overabundance of 17-OHP into masculine steroid hormones called androgens. As stated before, adrenal glands are responsible for creating cortisol, in order to maintain adequate energy supply and blood sugar levels, and deal with physical and emotional stress. "Lack of adequate cortisol also prevents the body from properly metabolizing sugar and responding to ...

Purpose: This study described the adherence and performance of the accelerometer in a cohort study of adults. Methods: From 2008-2011, 16,415 Hispanic/Latino adults age 18-74 years enrolled in the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos. Immediately following the baseline visit, participants wore an Actical accelerometer for one week. This study explored correlates of accelerometer participation and adherence, defined as wearing it for 3-6 days for ,=10 hours each day. Accelerometer performance was assessed by exploring the number of different values of accelerometer counts/minute for each participant. Results: Overall, 92.3% (n=15,153) had at least one day with accelerometer data and 77.7% (n=12,750) were adherent. Both accelerometer participation and adherence were higher among participants who were married or partnered, reported a higher household income, were first generation immigrants, or reported lower sitting time. Accelerometer participation was higher among those with no stair ...

Although some Latinos struggle to afford the healthy food their families need, many are reluctant to take advantage of food stamps because of stigma, language issues and complex eligibility rules, advocates say.. Maritza Real works to connect Latino immigrants to the federal food stamp program. She says her first step often is to kill the false rumor that once immigrants children turn 18 years old, they have to pay back to the government everything they have received. Real, who works for Community Action Partnership of Scott, Carver and Dakota counties, said she doesnt know where the rumor began, but that its keeping families from food stamps and thus healthy food. Census and other data show Latinos are more likely than whites to be poor and struggle to find their next good meal, Minnesota Public Radio News reported. Some immigrants believe applying for food stamps, formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, will hurt their chances at citizenship. Real, who grew ...

June 25, 2015 Westlands Drainage Settlement: A Primer Background The Westlands Water District provides water to users in the Western San Joaquin Valley. It is located within the San Luis Unit of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamations ("Reclamation") Central Valley Project. In its initial feasibility report for the San Luis Unit, Reclamation indicated that drainage facilities would be required to carry away waste irrigation water in order to prevent salt accumulations that would render the soil unfit for irrigation. For that reason, the San Luis Act, P.L. 86-488, 74 Stat. 156 (1960), which authorized the creation of the San Luis Unit, prohibited Reclamation from commencing construction of the San Luis Unit until it either received assurances from the state of California that it would provide a master drainage outlet for the San Joaquin Valley or Reclamation had provided for the construction of an "interceptor drain" (as described in Reclamations feasibility study) that would meet the drainage ...
Chagas disease, caused by the vector-borne protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi, is increasingly recognized in the southern U.S. Government-owned working dogs along the Texas-Mexico border could be at heightened risk due to prolonged exposure outdoors in habitats with high densities of vectors. We quantified working dog exposure to T. cruzi, characterized parasite strains, and analyzed associated triatomine vectors along the Texas-Mexico border.

The report also showed significant racial disparities. Non-Hispanic black mothers had the highest rates of preterm birth at 13.76 percent, compared with 9.04 percent for non-Hispanic white mothers. In addition, there was a national increase in low birthweight rates for the second year in a row, from 8.07 percent in 2015 to 8.16 percent in 2016. Racial disparities appeared here as well, with 13.66 percent of non-Hispanic black pregnancies resulting in low birthweights, versus 6.97 percent of non-Hispanic white births and 7.31 percent of Hispanic births.. Racial disparities are also evident in the number of women who receive prenatal care in the first trimester, where 82.3 percent of non-Hispanic white women received early prenatal care, compared with only 66.6 percent of non-Hispanic black women. A full 19.2 percent of non-Hispanic Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander women received late or no prenatal care at all.. In response to this report, the March of Dimes suggests several ...

Puerto Rican adults living in Massachusetts have documented health disparities and hav... read moree a disproportionate cardiometabolic risk burden compared to other Hispanic subgroups, but little is known about bone health in this population. It is therefore important to understand the association between CVD risk factors and bone health in this high risk group. Objectives: The objectives of this dissertation work were to (1) Investigate the association between ten-year risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and bone health; (2) Explore the association between central fat mass and bone health; (3) Examine the association between C-reactive protein (CRP), pro-inflammatory cytokines ...
Diabetes is not contagious. People cannot "catch" it from each other. However, certain factors can increase the risk of developing diabetes.. Type 1 diabetes occurs equally among males and females but is more common in whites than in non-whites. Data from the World Health Organizations Multinational Project for Childhood Diabetes indicate that type 1 diabetes is rare in most African, American Indian, and Asian populations. However, some northern European countries, including Finland and Sweden, have high rates of type 1 diabetes. The reasons for these differences are unknown. Type 1 diabetes develops most often in children but can occur at any age.. Type 2 diabetes is more common in older people, especially in people who are overweight, and occurs more often in African Americans, American Indians, some Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islander Americans, and Hispanics/Latinos. On average, non-Hispanic African Americans are 1.8 times as likely to have diabetes as non-Hispanic ...
Broomeia congregata Berk. is a gasteroid fungus with a predominant African distribution. However, it has been documented twice, in 1912 and 1973, as occurring in Catamarca Province (Argentina, South America). Nearly forty years later, a new finding is reported for San Luis Province, Argentina. The report includes new morphological information based on scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In addition, some phenological, biogeographical and ecological implications concerning B. congregata are discussed.
Correspondence. E-mail: [email protected] ABSTRACT. Between November 1996 and December 2006, two cases of early-onset and one case of late-onset neonatal listeriosis were reported in San Luis, Argentina. This article describes clinical and laboratory findings as well as treatment and outcome for newborns treated for Listeria monocytogenes meningitis or septicaemia. In one of the newborns with early-onset listeriosis, meningitis led to important complications including hydrocephalus. The two other newborns showed complete recovery following adequate treatment. The L. monocytogenes isolates from two patients belonged to PCR group IVb (including serovar 4b strains) and to PCR group IIb (including serovar 1/2b strains) in the third patient. Listeriosis, especially the maternal-fetal presentation, is still rare in Argentina for unknown reasons. Our data can be used in the future as an epidemiological survey.. Key words: Listeria monocytogenes; Neonatal meningitis; Argentina. RESUMEN. Meningitis ...
Now, a team of scientists led by Reeves has found a way around this "growing" problem.. The study began as a collaboration between Reeves faculty advisers, Rosemary Knight, a geophysicist who studies groundwater systems, and Howard Zebker, a geophysicist and electrical engineer who uses satellite-based remote sensing techniques to study the Earths surface. Knight and Zebker hoped that the combination of their expertise, and the efforts of their graduate student, would lead to new ways of using satellite data for groundwater management.. Reeves analyzed a decades worth of surface elevation data collected by satellites over the San Luis Valley in Colorado. Although the valley is rich with growing crops, Reeves and her advisers hoped that recent advances in data-processing techniques would allow her to gain an understanding of the aquifer that lay below.. As part of her analysis, Reeves produced maps of satellite measurements in the valley and saw a regular pattern of brightly colored ...
The campaign, a joint effort between the state Department of Public Health (DPH), Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA), federal Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and JetBlue, will focus on passengers traveling to and from San Juan, Puerto Rico on JetBlues two daily flights, but will also be seen by other travelers who may be connecting through other airports on their way to areas in the Caribbean, or Central/South America currently affected by Zika virus.. Puerto Rico has seen more than 1,700 Zika virus cases, including 191 in pregnant women. Last month, Puerto Rican health officials reported their first case of Zika-linked microcephaly.. Starting Friday, posters in both English and Spanish will be placed on the jet bridges for the flights to San Juan. The posters warn travelers to the American Tropics of the risk for mosquito-borne diseases, including Zika, and advise steps to avoid mosquito bites. Other posters focus on travelers returning from the American Tropics, providing ...
Summary Sera collected from 60 selected South Florida patients with undiagnosed infectious disease in 1961, 1962, and 1963 were studied in hemagglutination-inhibition tests with 22 selected arboviruses. This was done in order to determine whether or not any one of the viruses caused the disease of each patient and to determine the HI antibody status of representative South Florida residents against a spectrum of arboviruses. Among the 60 patients, 11 had encephalitis, 39 had aseptic meningitis, and the illnesses of the remaining 10 were characterized as undifferentiated febrile illnesses. Hemagglutination-inhibition antibodies were observed to 10 arboviruses in one or more of the late sera from nine patients: three were cases of encephalitis, three were aseptic meningitis and three were classified as undifferentiated febrile illnesses. The antibodies were to eight Group B viruses including bat salivary gland, Bussuquara, dengue type 2, Ilheus, Modoc, MVE, Powassan, and SLE, as well as Bunyamwera, Guaroa

English: The San Francisco Bay is a shallow, productive estuary that drains water from approximately forty percent of California. Water from the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers, and from the Sierra Nevada mountains passes through the Bay to the Pacific Ocean. Specifically, both rivers flow into Suisun Bay, which flows through the Carquinez Strait to meet with the Napa River at the entrance to San Pablo Bay, which connects at its south end to San Francisco Bay. However, the entire group of interconnected bays is often called the San Francisco Bay ...
A new marijuana arrest policy in New York, Americas largest city, is being applauded by civil rights advocates who say it will reduce alleged discrimination against black and Latino youth. Opponents of the old policy say it had negative implications not only for employment and housing opportunities of those arrested, but for the citys law enforcement budget as well. More than 50,000 people were arrested on misdemeanor marijuana charges in New York City last year, enough to fill any local stadium to capacity. Most of them were black or Latino males. Under a 1977 New York State law, possession of any amount of marijuana that is in public view can result in a three-month jail sentence and a $500 fine. City police officers, engaging in a controversial law enforcement technique known as stop-and-frisk, told people to empty their pockets even if they were not suspected of a crime. That would sometimes bring marijuana into public view, which resulted in an arrest. Last week, New York Police ...
