Medical and public health groups are banding together to explain how global warming has taken a toll on human health and will continue to cause food-borne illnesses, respiratory problems, and deaths unless policy changes are enacted.. In a conference call with reporters, the heads of the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Public Health Association (APHA) joined with a pediatrician and a scientist to lay out what they say is a major public health issue: climate change caused by global warming.. The "evidence has only grown stronger" that climate change is responsible for an increasing number of health ills, including asthma, diarrheal disease, and even deaths from extreme weather such as heat waves, said Dr. Georges Benjamin, executive director of the APHA.. For one, rising temperatures can mean more smog, which makes children with asthma sicker, explained pediatrician Dr. Perry Sheffield, assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Preventive ...

As we discussed earlier this month, the American Public Health Association (APHA) is currently in the middle of a four-part series of webinars, The Impact of Racism on the Health and Well-Being of the Nation. Today, APHAs third webinar, Unequal Treatment: Disparities in Access, Quality and Care, covered a variety of topics, including inequities in access to care for low-income communities and communities of color, the role of implicit biases in health disparities, and the impact of historical trauma on health.. The event featured an impressive lineup of speakers, including Brian Smedley from the National Collaborative for Health Equity, Michelle van Ryn from the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, and Linda Rae Murray from the University of Illinois School of Public Health. The presentations showed that while we have come a long way in regards to expanding coverage, access issues prevent many in low-income areas and communities of color from getting the best possible care. Also, racism and other ...
Each new edition of the American Public Health Association manual on Control of Communicable Diseases in Man is an event in the public health world. The eighth edition has been prepared by a committee of fifteen outstanding authorities in the field, with the collaboration of the principal American and British health organizations, which designated representatives to consult with the committee in order to reach common agreement as to facts and opinions. The aim is to provide an informative text for easy reference by public health workers, professionals in the medical field, military physicians, and health workers stationed in foreign countries. The format and its pocket-size add to its usefulness; it does not of course substitute for standard textbooks. While it largely expresses American practices and ideas, it has been translated into French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Serbo-Croatian, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, and Finnish, which should give it a wider usefulness.

BACKGROUND:. Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of mortality among women living in the United States, regardless of race and ethnicity and is likely the leading cause of mortality among lesbians. However, in various reports since 1994, the National Institute of Mental Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Medical Association, the American Public Health Association, and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) have pointed out that health care and health research affecting lesbian women are inadequate. As women, lesbians share many of the same health concerns of all women. However, as emphasized in the IOM Report on Lesbian Health factors assumed to place women at risk for or to protect them against health disorders may not be present at the same levels or operate in the same way for lesbians. The IOM report also recognizes that women who self-identify as lesbian may also experience stressors not commonly faced by heterosexual women and that it is ...

The Committee of the American Public Health Association (APHA) issued a report outlining appropriate ways to prevent the spread and reduce the severity of the epidemic. They noted first that the disease was extremely communicable and "spread solely by discharges from the nose and throats of infected persons." They sought to prevent infection by breaking the channels of communication such as droplet infection by sputum control. They believed that infection occurred by the contamination of the hands and common eating and drinking utensils. Thus they called for legislation to prevent the use of common cups and to regulate coughing and sneezing. They wanted to initiate education programs and publicity on respiratory hygiene about the dangers of coughing, sneezing and the careless disposal of nasal discharges. They aimed to teach people the value of hand-washing before eating and the advantages of general hygiene (JAMA, 12/21/1918). Public Health Departments issued Flu Posters to educate the ...

The census data also found that 11.7 percent of U.S. children under 18 lacked health insurance, compared with 10.9 percent in 2005. In a statement released Tuesday, the executive director of the American Public Health Association, Georges Benjamin, observed, "This is a travesty.". "Tragically, our children share the burden. 8.7 million children-or more than one in 10-were uninsured in 2006, up from 8 million," he continued. "Access to health care is critical, especially for children. Children who are uninsured are more than three times less likely to have seen a doctor in the last year and have a higher incidence of preventable disease than insured children.". The data served to add more voices to an already contentious debate in Washington regarding Congress reauthorization of the State Childrens Health Insurance Program, designed with the goal of expanding health insurance to children whose families earn too much money to be eligible for Medicaid, but not enough money to purchase private ...

I would like to ask your readers to take advantage of this opportunity to raise awareness of an often silent, frequently underestimated disease state affecting our patient populations: deep vein thrombosis (DVT).. P&T readers: As many of you know, DVT occurs when a blood clot forms in one of the large veins (usually in the lower limbs), resulting in partial or complete blockage of circulation. DVT may become fatal by causing a pulmonary embolism (PE), a serious complication that occurs when a blood clot or fragment breaks off from the vein it is in and migrates to the lungs, where it can block the pulmonary artery or its branches. What is less well known is the fact that more Americans die each year from PE than from breast cancer, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), or highway fatalities.. Most patients have never heard of DVT or PE and have no understanding of this potentially deadly disease. According to a survey sponsored by the American Public Health Association (APHA), among those ...
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE. BERKELEY-- Unusually heavy drinking by young white men -- a pattern for nearly 30 years -- has taken a dramatic nosedive, dropping by half in the past decade, from 32 percent to 16 percent of the 18-29 age group. The decline occurred between the years 1984 and 1995, according to a major new study of drinking patterns among 6,000 American men and women of different ethnic origins, reported today (11/10) by researchers from the University of California at Berkeley.. Young black and Hispanic men showed no such decline in frequent, heavy alcohol use during the same time periods, although rates had been initially lower among these men, the researchers said in a report to the 125th annual meeting of the American Public Health Association in Indianapolis.. This is the first time that comparative information on drinking patterns among ethnic groups has been available for a large enough group of minorities to make comparisons with the majority population. Between 1,500 and 2,000 ...

Marijuana is frequently beneficial in the treatment of the following conditions: AIDS, glaucoma (by reducing intraocular pressure, alleviating the pain, and slowing--sometimes even stopping--the progress of the disease); cancer (by stimulating the appetite and alleviating nausea and vomiting, common side effects of chemotherapy treatment); Multiple Sclerosis (by limiting the muscle pain and spasticity caused by the disease, as well as relieving tremor and unsteadiness of gait); epilepsy (by preventing seizures in some patients and alleviating the adverse side effects of antiepileptic medications); and by alleviating the chronic, often debilitating pain caused by myriad disorders and injuries. Each of these applications has been deemed legitimate by at least one court, legislature, and/or government agency in the United States..

Practicing basic hygiene, such as regular hand washing and covering the mouth when sneezing or coughing, can also help prevent the flus spread.. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: There are three types of flu virus: A, B and C. The Type A virus includes 16 subtypes of which only two (H1 and H3) are associated with widespread epidemics, according to the Control of Communicable Diseases Manual (CCDM), published by the American Public Health Association. Epidemics are defined as diseases that suddenly occur in communities, regions or countries in unusually high numbers. The Type B virus is infrequently associated with regional or widespread epidemics; Type C with occasional outbreaks and minor confined outbreaks. During the initial phase of epidemics in industrialized countries, infection and illness appear mainly in school-age children, with a sharp rise in school absences, doctor visits and childrens hospital admissions, according to CCDM. Most epidemics usually last three to six weeks. For further ...

WASHINGTON -- Asthma rates across the nation have increased dramatically, and have more than doubled among pre-school children due to carbon dioxide in the air and other climate changes, according to a study released by Harvard researchers and the American Public Health Association this week.
Discrete samples for phytoplankton enumeration were collected from the oxygenated portion of the water column (below the bottom of the ice to a depth of 10 m) at 0.5 m intervals. Sampling was done primarily between the hours of 14:00 and 20:00 (during the austral summer, the illuminated period is 24 h/day) by either peristaltic pump or Kemmerer bottle. Samples were collected in 1 l bottles and preserved immediately with Lugons solution (American Public Health Association, 1985). Identification and counts were made with an inverted microscope by the method of Utermohl (1958). At least 100 individuals of the most numerous algae were counted per sample at 100x magnification. The total number of individuals counted was dependent on the number of taxa, but ranged between 200 and 500. Counting error ranged between 13 and 26%, depending on species. Algal species identifications were made using Geitler (1932), Seaburg et al. (1979) and Prescott (1962). Cell volumes were estimated for dominant taxa by ...

1960-1979. As we move into the 1960s and 1970s, communicable diseases began to take less priority as many of them were now under relative control. Instead, the public health focus shifted to environmental health and safety. After WWII, New Mexicos population grew rapidly and there were new exposures to airborne pollutants. [1]. A number of laws emerged nationally during the 1960s and 1970s surrounding environmental health and regulation. In 1969, the National Environmental Policy Act was enacted that required all branches of government to consider environmental impact before taking any federal action that would significantly affect the environment. Additionally, the Clean Air Act of 1979 mandated heightened standards of air quality, the Clean Water Act in 1972 mandated further regulation of pollutants into waters (among other things) and the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974 mandated higher standards to protect drinking water. [2]. Similar acts were seen in New Mexico as sanitation issues turned ...

Vaccination is considered one of the 12 great achievements in the history of public health. As public health associations in Canada point out, one hundred years ago infectious diseases were the leading causes of death worldwide. Now thanks to advances in vaccines and immunization they are the cause of less than 5% of all deaths in Canada. But the capacity to maintain our immunization efforts is always stretched. We can lose ground. That is why building an even stronger team across the whole health sector to contribute to our fight against infectious diseases has never been more important. Expanding the contribution of pharmacists in the vaccination efforts is another milestone in building a strong system for public health. Ted ...

The doctors letter concluded by listing 30 peer-reviewed studies establishing "a clear link between air pollution and a range of serious adverse human health effects." Not surprisingly, Bartons office has failed to respond to the doctors..

The lobbyists even went so far as to dispute the association between premature deaths and particulate matter pollution..

In November 1986, 212 participants from 38 countries convened in Ottawa, Canada, at the first International Conference on Health Promotion organized by the World Health Organization (WHO), Health and Welfare Canada, and the Canadian Public Health Association. Although not representative of the entire globe, these participants adopted the Ottawa Charter on health promotion as "the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health". The five action areas identified were to: build healthy public policy; create supportive environments; strengthen community action; develop personal skills; and re-orient health care services, toward prevention of illness and promotion of health [1-3]. The Charter laid the foundation for subsequent efforts in advancing global health over the next 30 years, including development of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDGs have given way to a more robust and comprehensive agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) [4], ...

The beginnings of this partnership stretch directly to Louis Pasteur and his establishment of the Pasteur Institute in 1888. Pasteurs success with rabies vaccine, and then the discovery of diphtheria antitoxin in the 1890s, inspired the foundation of many similar organizations around the world dedicated to producing public health products. In 1894, the Ontario Board of Health began importing a commercial supply of diphtheria antitoxin from the U.S., and also established the Ontario Vaccine Farm to provide smallpox vaccine. For the next decade, concerns grew in Canada about the price and quality of imported diphtheria antitoxin. There was also pressure from the Canadian Public Health Association, and others, on the federal government to assume responsibility for producing the antitoxin, or at least regulate its quality. In 1910, a rabies outbreak in Ontario also brought calls for the establishment of a Pasteur Institute affiliated with the University of Toronto, but little developed.. Meanwhile, ...

(24 February 1930 - 20 December 2006) was a prominent American public health entomologist and Professor of Tropical Public Health in the Department of Immunology and Infectious Disease at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). Spielman was a world-renowned expert in the vector-borne illnesses malaria, Lyme disease, babesiosis and in the ways in which they are transmitted by mosquitoes and ticks.

D. in the malaria lab at Johns Hopkins University in 1952, serving thereafter as a public health entomologist in the U.S. Navy (he left the service as a lieutenant commander). Spielman became a member of the faculty at HSPH in 1959, where he divided his time between the lab and the field. After George Healy, a researcher at the Centers for Disease Control, helped diagnose a second case of human babesiosis on Nantucket in 1973, Spielman traveled to ...
