Breast and cervical cancer screening among Appalachian women. (1/161)

Medical service shortages, rural residence, and socioeconomic and cultural factors may pose barriers to breast and cervical cancer screening among women living in the Appalachian region of the United States. This study determined the rates of breast and cervical cancer screening in Appalachia and identified factors associated with screening. Data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, 1996 to 1998, for the Appalachian region were analyzed to determine the percentage of women > or =40 years of age who had had a mammogram or clinical breast examination (CBE) within the past 2 years and the percentage of women > or =18 years of age who had had a Pap test within the past 3 years. Screening rates were compared with those for women living elsewhere in the United States. Screening rates were further assessed according to demographic, socioeconomic, and physical and behavioral health factors. Multiple logistic regression analyses were conducted to examine the predictors of screening. Overall, 14,520 Appalachian women > or =18 years of age reported on Pap tests; 13,223 women > or =40 years of age reported on mammogram screening, and 13,124 women reported on CBE screening. Among Appalachian women, 68.8% [95% confidence interval (CI), 67.8-69.9] had a mammogram, 75.1% (95% CI, 74.1-76.1) had a CBE in the past 2 years, and 82.4% (95% CI, 81.5-83.3) had a Pap test in the past 3 years. These rates were at most approximately 3% lower than those for women living elsewhere in the United States, but these differences were statistically significant. Older women and women with less education or income were screened less commonly. Women who had visited a doctor within the past year were more likely to have been screened. Additional interventions are needed to increase breast and cervical cancer screening rates for Appalachian women to meet the goals of Healthy People 2010, targeting in particular population groups found to have lower screening rates.  (+info)

Cancer death rates--Appalachia, 1994-1998. (2/161)

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Although descriptive analyses of mortality data are used often to identify variations by time and person, analyses that focus on regional variations are less common. Appalachia is a U.S. region with a high prevalence of risk factors for cancer (e.g., tobacco use, physical inactivity, and inadequate access to medical care). Analyses that focus on Appalachia provide valuable information for cancer control, research, and intervention. To assess the impact of cancer in Appalachia, researchers from the University of Kentucky and Pennsylvania State University, in collaboration with CDC, analyzed mortality data from CDC's National Center for Health Statistics for 1994-1998. This report summarizes the results of that analysis, which indicate elevated cancer mortality, underscoring the need for ongoing cancer prevention and control programs as a major public health priority in this region.  (+info)

Costs of providing dental services for children in public and private practices. (3/161)

This study compares the costs of providing children's dental services in three practice settings: private practices, public mobile clinics, and public fixed clinics. Some 15,000 children were provided comprehensive dental care over a three-year period. Results indicate that costs per visit and per child were lowest in mobile clinics and highest in private practices. The differential was partially explained by differences in productivity but mostly by the fact that the price of services in public practices represented costs of production, whereas in private practices they represented market values.  (+info)

Improving the oral health knowledge of osteopathic medical students. (4/161)

Due to a complex set of circumstances including culture, poverty, low educational achievement, and limited access to dental care, the oral health of rural Appalachians is poorer than that of people in other parts of Kentucky. Limited health care dollars go to primary medical care which may be the only contact these individuals have with the health care system. Consequently, primary care physicians can help improve oral health. The University of Kentucky College of Dentistry (UKCD) and the Pikeville College School of Osteopathic Medicine (PCSOM) developed an oral health education block for third-year PCSOM students. Eleven UKCD faculty and one PCSOM faculty participated in the two-day, sixteen-hour oral health curriculum. Knowledge retention data from the post-tests was collected four months after the educational program. Students significantly improved their performance in six of the topic areas, with performance staying the same in one area and dropping significantly in one area. Focus groups were conducted with sixteen (two groups of eight) randomly selected students one year after the educational program. Students reported using the knowledge and oral exam techniques included in the course and felt that it was a valuable addition to their curriculum.  (+info)

Underserved region recruitment and return to practice: a thirty-year analysis. (5/161)

The purpose of this investigation was a retrospective analysis of a select group of graduates from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry (UKCD) over a thirty-year history to determine how many of these individuals came from the Appalachian Region of Eastern Kentucky, which historically has been economically depressed and underserved by health care practitioners including dentists. This same group of dental school graduates was then tracked to see if they established dental practices in the Appalachian region of the state. Recruiting trends were investigated by reviewing student records regarding county of origin from targeted classes at UKCD in 1969, 1979, and 1989 to gain ten-year incremental, historical perspectives. To identify more recent trends, classes graduating in 1994 through 1999 were reviewed. Once identified, the databank of the Kentucky Board of Dentistry was used to determine if these individuals reported practicing in counties of Kentucky designated by the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC). The findings of this study indicate an alarming decline both in numbers of students being recruited from this underserved area and a concomitant decline in those recruits returning to ARC-designated counties in the state. This study establishes the need for persistent diligence in recruitment of students from underserved areas and challenges dental schools to create strategies that will encourage their graduates to establish practices in these regions.  (+info)

van der Waals and hygroscopic forces of adhesion generated by spider capture threads. (6/161)

Cribellar thread is the most primitive type of sticky prey capture thread found in aerial spider webs. Its outer surface is formed of thousands of fine fibrils that issue from a cribellum spinning field. The fibrils of primitive cribellar thread are cylindrical, whereas those of derived threads have nodes. Cribellar threads snag on insect setae but also adhere to smooth surfaces. A previous study showed empirically that cylindrical fibrils use only van der Waals forces to stick to smooth surfaces, as their stickiness is the same under different humidity. By contrast, noded fibrils are stickier under high humidity, where they are presumed to adsorb atmospheric water and implement hygroscopic (capillary) adhesion. Here, we model thread stickiness according to these two adhesive mechanisms. These models equate stickiness with the force necessary to overcome the adhesion of fibril contact points in a narrow band along each edge of the contact surface and to initiate peeling of the thread from the surface. Modeled and measured thread stickiness values are similar, supporting the operation of the hypothesized adhesive forces and portraying an important transition in the evolution of spider threads. Cribellar threads initially relied only on van der Waals forces to stick to smooth surfaces. The appearance of fibril nodes introduced hydrophilic sites that implemented hygroscopic force and increased thread stickiness under intermediate and high humidity.  (+info)

Appalachian teen smokers: not on tobacco 15 months later. (7/161)

High school smokers from 2 central Appalachian states received the American Lung Association's 10-session Not On Tobacco (N-O-T) program or a 15-minute brief self-help intervention. Our study compared the efficacy of N-O-T with that of the brief intervention by examining group differences in the 15-month-postbaseline (12-month-postprogram) smoking quit rates. N-O-T youths had higher overall quit rates. Review of end-of-program (3-month-postbaseline) and 3-month-postprogram (6-month-postbaseline) follow-up data showed state-level differences and positive cessation trends over time, regardless of treatment intensity. Quit rates were lower than rates found in other N-O-T studies of nonrural youths, suggesting that Appalachian youths are a recalcitrant smoking sample. Findings suggest that N-O-T is one option for long-term smoking cessation among rural teens.  (+info)

Gender differences among long-distance backpackers: A prospective study of women Appalachian Trail backpackers. (8/161)

OBJECTIVE: Backpacking is a popular recreational activity, yet the differential experiences of women are unknown. The objective was to compare women with men backpackers to determine the extent to which injuries and illnesses limit endurance outdoor recreational activities. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort surveillance survey of 334 persons who hiked the Appalachian Trail for > or =7 days. At the end of their hike, 280 subjects completed a questionnaire. Male hikers served as controls for injury and illness. RESULTS: Women comprised 26% (72 of 280) of the sample. The mean (+/-SD) duration of hiking was 144 +/- 66 days covering 1570 +/- 680 miles. Fifty-seven percent (41 of 72) of women and 72% (150 of 208) of men attained their goal (P = .02). The occurrence of individual musculoskeletal problems, such as strains, sprains, arthralgias, tendonitis, and fractures, were similar (P = .9) between sexes. The occurrence of diarrhea (56%) was also similar (relative risk [RR] 1.0; P = .9) between sexes. Of regularly menstruating women, 87% (43 of 49) had menstrual changes while hiking, such as change in frequency (45%) or character (43%) (RR 3.1; 95% CI, 2.0-4.8; P < .001). Shortened duration of menses was most common (41%). Amenorrhea occurred in 22% (11 of 49) of women, including 5 of 25 taking oral contraceptive pills (OCPs). Breakthrough, midcycle bleeding occurred in 20% (10 of 49) of women. CONCLUSIONS: Women had similar experiences as compared with men when backpacking. Menstrual changes were very common including amenorrhea. Prolonged amenorrhea raises concern for potential bone mineral density loss, and OCPs should be considered to prevent such loss.  (+info)

In the heart of the United States oldest mountain range sits a place near and dear to my heart. The Appalachian Mountains stretch from the Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador to Central Alabama (Britannica, 2019). Central Appalachia was my home of 17 years. Central Appalachia is one of the most economically distressed areas in the United States; in 1965, 265 counties across the Appalachian region were considered to be high-poverty counties (i.e. noted poverty rates that are more than 1.5 times the U.S. average at that time) (Appalachian Regional Commission, 2017, par 2). That number has since decreased across the mountains, but the remaining 98 high-poverty counties remain in Central Appalachia. As beautiful as this rural land is to the naked eye, its beauty is not what is portrayed to the general public. According to the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC; 2017), those living in rural counties experience more physically and mentally unhealthy days than those in metro areas ...

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) reinforced his support for rural Ohio and hospitals in the region following a new report that found the Appalachian region faces unique health challenges and lack of access to care and doctors. The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), and the Foundation for Health Kentucky authored the report, Health Disparities in Appalachia. The report compares health indicators of the Appalachian Region to those of the nation as a whole, and found substantial disparities in health outcomes and other health-related factors in Ohios Appalachian Region.. This study reveals what we know is true about the unique health challenges Appalachian Ohioans are facing, said Brown. From finding doctors in the area to increasing wages and household income, there is more work to be done to get Ohioans access to the health care they need. We must continue to invest in this region through sources like the Appalachian ...
The Appalachian Teaching Project (ATP) engages students and regional citizens in posing answers to the question, How can we build a sustainable future for Appalachian communities? The project teaches students and communities about the work of the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), its state and local partners, and the goals of the Commissions strategic plan. The first project was held in the fall of 2001 and emerged from a number of meetings of members of the Consortium of Appalachian Centers with the Appalachian Regional Commission staff. These meetings resulted in a grant that supported pilot efforts to involve students and faculty in a regional teaching collaboration, the ATP. The Consortium of Appalachian Centers is currently composed of thirteen (13) colleges, universities, and community colleges from the Appalachian region that are dedicated to working more closely together in service to the Appalachian region to improve the quality of life for its residents. ...

Underserved communities with high cancer rates often are not involved in implementing state cancer control activities locally. An East Tennessee State University research team formed 2 Appalachian Community Cancer Research Review Work Groups, 1 in northeast Tennessee and 1 in southwest Virginia. During 4 sessions, the research team presented regional cancer data to the work groups. Work group participants explored research from a lay perspective and identified possible reasons for cancer disparities in central Appalachia. The fifth session was a community dissemination activity in which work group participants engaged in cancer education and action by presenting the research to their local communities in unique ways. During a sixth session, both work groups discussed these interventions and further attempted to answer the question, What makes the experience of cancer unique in Appalachia? This article describes the key steps of this community-based participatory research process ...

Abstract: The present study sought to determine if a relationship existed between ASU freshmen women and their upperclass sisters in attitudes and behavior. An attitude and a behavior questionnaire were scored on a scale of 0 (conservative) to 5 (liberal) for each subject. Attitude scores were found to be generally higher than behavior scores. A relationship was found between freshmen and their upperclass sisters on attitudes but not behavior. A relationship was also found for upperclass sisters between their attitudes and behavior but was not found for freshmen women. Conclusions are: a) sibling attitudes but not behaviors are related, b) a relationship exists for upperclass sisters between attitude and behavior, and c) no relationship exists for freshmen between their attitudes and behavior..

Obesity and diabetes are major health problems in the United States. The primary aim of this study is to examine the association between obesity and diabetes and to estimate the cost of diabetes linked to obesity in the Appalachian region. A system of simultaneous equations approach, and a logit estimation are employed for the analyses. Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) surveys for 2001 and 2009 are the main sources of data. Both county-level and individual-level data are used for the analyses. The simultaneous approach at county-level based on the changes of income, employment, obesity, and diabetes reveals that obesity increases diabetes, but diabetes does not have an effect on obesity. The counties with high initial levels of obesity had less obesity growth but more diabetes growth. Increasing income impacts negatively on diabetes growth. Logit analysis indicates that obesity significantly increases the risk of diabetes of adults in Appalachia. Besides, being employed, higher income

Abstract: Aerosols directly and indirectly influence the surface energy balance and therefore have an important impact on weather and climate. The indirect effects of aerosols, associated with changes in cloud properties and lifetimes, remain poorly understood. Likewise, there are many uncertainties associated with aerosol-precipitation interactions, particularly in mountain regions where a variety of processes at different spatial scales influence precipitation patterns. Aerosol-precipitation linkages were examined in the southern Appalachian Mountains, guided by the following research questions: 1) How do aerosol properties observed during precipitation events vary by season (e.g., summer vs. winter) and synoptic event type (e.g., frontal vs. orographic); 2) how do they compare between summer (June, July, August) 2009 and 2010, and 3) what influence does air mass source region have on aerosol properties? Precipitation events were identified based on data from the Boone Automated Weather ...

When it was illegal in the United States, moonshine distillation was done at night to avoid discovery.[6] It was especially prominent in the Appalachian area. White whiskey most likely entered the Appalachian region in the late 18th century to early 1800s. Scots-Irish immigrants from the province of Ulster in the north of Ireland brought their recipe for uisce beatha, Gaelic for water of life. The settlers made their whiskey without aging it, and that is the recipe that became traditional in the Appalachian area.[7] By the early 20th century, moonshine became a key source of income for many Appalachian residents because the limited road network made it difficult and expensive to transport corn crops. As a study of farmers in Cocke County, Tennessee, observes: One could transport much more value in corn if it was first converted to whiskey. One horse could haul ten times more value on its back in whiskey than in corn.[8] Moonshiners in Harlan County, Kentucky, like Maggie Bailey, made the ...

This study examines possible consequences of food insecurity as they relate to overweight, obesity, and chronic disease and highlights the need for further research on health status in the Appalachian region and the United States. The prevalence of food insecurity among this sample was more than 2.5 times the U.S. average rate (10.1%) in 1999 (3) and almost 3 times the Ohio average rate of household food insecurity at the time of the study (9.1%) (2).. A previous study suggested that even minimal levels of food insecurity are associated with poorer self-reported health status among individuals from an Appalachian Ohio county (6). Poor health status has also been associated with food insecurity in other studies (5,7-9). For adults, dietary quality can be negatively affected by food insecurity or insufficiency (11-13,15), and these suboptimal intakes could increase the publics risk of developing diet-related chronic diseases over time (12).. In this study, participants from food-insecure ...
This brings us to the second Times editorial - the one about President Trumps War on Science. This piece is the papers own editorial and thus unsigned. It represents a rundown of how the Trump administration is systematically dismantling all federally funded scientific programs that could add to the cost of production or otherwise interfere with a multitude of polluting industries. This is being done even though the consequence, as the Times puts it, is that the future isnt going to be nearly as promising for ordinary Americans as it should be.. As an example, we can take the future of citizens of the Appalachian region of the U.S. The editorial describes how the Trump administration stopped a study into increased rates of birth defects, cancer and other health problems among people living near big surface coal mining operations in Appalachia. It seems that proving such a correlation would certainly harm the coal industry that Mr. Trump promised to sustain. Do his supporting zealots ...
The report shows that while working-age adults in Appalachia are nearly as likely to have completed high school as Americans in general, they are significantly less likely to have completed at least four years of college. Just over 25 percent of Appalachias working-age population had a four-year degree or more in 2013-2017-seven percentage points lower than the U.S. average of 32 percent. And the rate was less than 20 percent in both Central Appalachia and the Regions most rural counties.. Nearly three-fourths (73 percent) of Appalachias prime working-age adults were in the labor force in 2013-2017, which is almost five percentage points lower than in the United States as a whole. But this share was much lower in 53 counties (38 of which were in Central Appalachia) where less than 60 percent of adults ages 25 to 64 were in the labor force.. Not surprisingly, those counties with lower labor force participation rates also had lower levels of educational attainment, Jacobsen says.. Although ...

Ohios Appalachian region was once highly dependent on heavy industry, agriculture and mining. Like other states previously reliant on manufacturing and industry, the majority of jobs today are in health care, retail and service industries. Poverty remains high. While some communities have improved over the years, many are still adjusting to disappearing sectors and lack of basic infrastructure, such as water and sewer systems. Surrounding metropolitan areas have seen increases in employment opportunities with better pay and technological skills. But those jobs havent made it into these rural counties. Education remains a challenge, as well. High school completion rate is around 68 percent. And those that do leave high school are often unprepared for skilled labor jobs or even community college. Rural schools are less likely than those in non-rural schools to offer programs that prepare students for current and anticipated jobs. The offerings typically reflect the differences in labor markets. ...
Objective: To examine the association between subclinical atherosclerosis (ascertained as coronary artery calcium; CAC) in asymptomatic individuals in the Central Appalachian region of the United States and individual- and geographic-level factors. Methods: Data were obtained from participants in CAC screening during 2012 and 2016. CAC score was assessed as CAC=0 (no plaque), 1≤CAC≤99 (mild plaque), 100≤CAC≤399 (moderate plaque), and CAC≥400 (severe plaque). Additionally, data on demographics (age, sex, and race), medical conditions, lifestyle factors, and family history of coronary artery disease (CAD) were obtained. Further, zip codes of place of residence for participants were used to generate geographic-level data. Descriptive statistics were used to estimate the prevalence of CAC, and multinomial logistic regression models were used to delineate significant factors. Results: Of 1512 participants, 57.6% had CAC|0. The prevalence of mild, moderate, and severe plaques was 31.6%, 16.3%, and
AOTA 2014 - Students are viewed as occupational beings, in dynamic transaction with the learning context and the teaching-learning process. The learning context includes the curriculum and pedagogy and conveys a perspective and belief system that includes a view of humans as occupational beings, occupation as a health determinant, and participation as a fundamental right. Education promotes clinical reasoning and the integration of professional values, theories, evidence, ethics and skills. This will prepare practitioners to collaborate with clients to achieve health, well-being, and participation in life through engagement in occupation.. The Occupational Therapy Program at Emory & Henry believes that the learning environment needs to be occupation centered and learning takes place through activities provided on campus but also off campus in the Appalachian region and/or around the nation.

Video produced by UK Public Relations and Marketing.. LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 21, 2016) - With the rise in injection drug use, infectious disease has permeated through cohesive social networks in Appalachia, causing another dimension of devastation in the wake of the opioid epidemic.. About 15 years ago, a shift toward injection drug use behaviors occurred in rural Appalachia. These changes in drug use patterns signaled the potential for infiltration of blood-borne pathogens transmitted through shared needles. Increases in hepatitis C (HCV) infections have paralleled the increase in injection drug use behaviors among opioid users, with the rate of HCV infection in three Appalachian states tripling within six years.. With staggering rates of injection drug use and HCV in Appalachia, the National Institutes on Drug Abuse (NIDA) issued planning grants in 2016 to support researchers expediting and implementing solutions to the epidemic. Jennifer Havens, an epidemiologist in the University of Kentucky ...
Three blood collection drives are planned in the Twin Counties during February, as the American Red Cross experiences mounting effects of severe winter weather that caused the lowest January blood supply in a decade. Severe weather throughout much of the eastern half of the U.S. has caused cancellation of more than 14,000 blood and platelet donations through the American Red Cross, including more than 600 in the Appalachian region.

Even with the law in place, the debate about the needle-exchange programs persist.

Working towards Appalachian transition is something personally dear to me, and Im more than happy to put off grad school for this chance. I believe change is possible here, at this moment, on a scale Appalachia has yet to experience. One of the main reasons: the coal has run out. Its no longer controversial that coal seams like the ones that literally powered the industrial revolution, World War I, and World War II no longer exist in Appalachia. After more than a century of mining, the cheap coal of Central Appalachia is gone. The bits that are left have no hope of competing on the market with cheap, fracked Appalachian natural gas. Last week a former miner remarked to me, The coal market isnt coming back from this one. Ive seen my fair share of cycles over my career-the booms and the busts of the coal industry-but this one, its different. Even if coal makes some miraculous recovery nationally (which it wont), itll be from coal of the Powder River Basin, not Appalachia. So, big ...

After a little small talk, youll soon find out that people around here dont bother giving road names or numbers. We prefer something a little more colorful...like landmarks. So instead of simply telling you to turn left on Main Street and go 15 miles until you reach Walnut Lane, youll hear: Alright, youre going to go back out the way you came in but this time youre going to take a left at that pretty little Missionary Baptist Church. You know, my momma and daddy were married at that church back in 67. Its the truth! Theyll be celebrating their 50th anniversary in June. Folks just dont stay together like the used to, do they? Now when you get to the fork in the road where that chicken truck turned over, youre going to want to go right. Itll seem like youre just going straight but youre really going right. ...
Oriental bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus), an introduced vine from southeast Asia, has become a serious threat to native forests in the eastern United States. It is typical of many exotic species in that quantitative ecological relationships are unavailable for assessment or management. We devised a rapid survey technique useful for hazard rating and modeled the probability of occurrence of oriental bittersweet in relation to environment, competition, and disturbance in stands of deciduous hardwoods in mountainous terrain. Oriental bittersweet was present on 39% of the study area, which has been managed by the selection system of silviculture and was recently disturbed by hurricane-force winds. Bittersweet was significantly associated with (1) topographic variables indicative of mesic environments, (2) density of midstory arborescent vegetation, (3) overstory canopy gaps, (4) past silvicultural harvests, (5) overstory canopy composition, and (5) scarification of the forest floor.

Rosebay rhododendron (Rhododendron maximum L.) is an evergreen ericaceous shrub that plays a dynamic role in the southern Appalachian forests. Commonly located on mesic sites, this understory shrub forms dense thickets that greatly reduce the amount of light available to herbaceous and woody plants found on the forest floor. Past research has shown that silvicultural methods can be used to eradicate R. maximum, however it is unclear which of these methods is most efficient and what effects other than stem mortality may occur. In this study, treatments involving prescribed fire, mechanical cutting, and herbicide applications were applied to R. maximum dominated forests in southwestern Virginia to determine what effect seven different silvicultural treatments had on 1) controlling of R. maximum as a forest weed 2) fuel loading inside of a R. maximum thicket, and 3) canopy tree seedling regeneration. Mechanical cutting treatments were successful in reducing R. maximum basal area per acre; however ...
Introduction: Hepatocellular carcinoma incidence and mortality rates are the rise in the United States and in Kentucky as well. According to the National Cancer Institute, there will be an estimated 40,710 new cases of liver and intrahepatic bile duct cancer and 28,920 deaths in 2017, with than 20% of 5-years survivors 1. The numbers of new cases expected by year 2030 is 37,574 2. The aim of this capstone is to assess the risk factors of late-stage diagnosis and survivability in Kentucky. Methods: A combined dataset from the Kentucky Cancer Registry and the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System was used to perform a descriptive statistics, a logistic regression and a Cox proportional-hazards regression. Results: Of the 2,205 cases analyzed, 72.1% were males, 90.2% of white/other ethnicity, 41.1% were married and lived mostly in urban (59.5%0 and non-Appalachian region (72.1%). Their mean age at diagnosis was 64.1 years and most were diagnosed between 2005 and 2009 (81.5%) with late-stage (41.9%)
Americans who live in parts of Appalachia and the South are the least likely to be physically active in their leisure time, according to estimates released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In many counties in those regions, more than 29 percent of adults reported getting no physical activity or exercise other than at their regular job.. The 2004-2008 estimates, posted online at www.cdc.gov/diabetes/statistics, provide county-level estimates for leisure-time physical inactivity for all U.S. counties. Areas where residents are most likely to be active in their free time are the West Coast, Colorado, Minnesota and parts of the Northeast.. States where residents are the least likely to be physically active during leisure time are Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Tennessee. In those states, physical inactivity rates are 29.2 percent or greater for more than 70 percent of the counties.. A 2008 CDC survey found that 25.4 percent of U.S. adults did not ...
Study Purpose: The spatial dynamics of crime in nonmetropolitan locations can be understood as a product of social, economic, and demographic influences that are often unique to those areas. Thus there is a need for research on nonmetropolitan crime that takes location and geographic context seriously. This research project was designed to demonstrate the contributions that Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial analysis procedures can make to the study of crime patterns in a largely nonmetropolitan region of the United States. The project examined the extent to which the relationship between various structural factors and crime varied across metropolitan and nonmetropolitan locations in Appalachia over time. GIS and crime mapping technologies enabled the researcher to look more rigorously at the spatial patterns and ecological contexts of crime. Study Design: To investigate the spatial patterns of crime for this project, a georeferenced dataset was compiled at the county level for ...

APM: Thanks for taking the time to sit down for this interview, Bob. Your novel The Inside War is about an Appalachian mountain family during the Civil War. How long have you been interested in the Civil War?. RJE: I have had an interest in the Civil War for many years. Specifically, the effect of the war on Appalachia became an interest as I researched family history, now more than a decade ago. I realized that not much had been written, outside of academic treatises, on this aspect of the war. Bushwhacking ambushes, bands of roving deserters, intensely opposed partisan factions, and a breakdown in civil society befell western North Carolina. Of course, much study had been given to the poverty of the area during the twentieth century, but not much, save bluegrass music, about its culture. What I discovered was a vibrant pre-war society thoroughly rent by the war. And, the area did not recover.. APM: The story of Will Roberts, your novels protagonist, is similar to that of many actual soldiers ...

The Appalachian settlement schools were inspired by the settlement movement that started in London in the late 19th century and was represented in the United States by urban settlement houses, including Hull House in Chicago and the Henry Street Settlement in New York City.[2] A large fraction of settlement schools were founded as Christian missions and had a religious purpose in addition to a social welfare purpose.[1] Possibly the earliest manifestation of the settlement movement in southern Appalachia was the Log Cabin Settlement near Asheville, North Carolina, started in September 1894 by Susan Chester. Chester, a graduate of Vassar College, had experience with urban settlements in the northeastern United States. She considered the people of rural Appalachia to be the purest Americans to be found and envisioned her Log Cabin Settlement as an opportunity to revive the weaving industry... and provide a good library for the community in cooperation with a mission chapel and district ...
Washington, DC - A controversial decision to pull the plug on a federal study of the socio-economic impacts of coal strip mining has no identified author, according to documents obtained by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). Nor were the reasons behind the action pinpointed, as key documents are still being withheld as deliberative.. In August 2017, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM) ordered the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAS) to stop all work on a study of health risks for people living near surface mine sites in Central Appalachia pending an Interior-wide review of its grants and cooperative agreements.. In April 2018, PEER submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for explanatory documents. OSM provided some material but withheld records revealing the who and why behind the suspension of the million-dollar NAS study into the harms faced by communities from mountain-top removal coal ...

It is sad that cancer charities, one of the most serious and popular giving categories, perform so poorly...
Most cancer organizations agree that women of normal risk who have had no previous breast symptoms or problems should begin getting mammograms every 1-2 years starting at age 40. (In this stance, DBCC joins other organizations including Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute.) Previously, almost all organizations agreed on these guidelines. However, in late 2009, the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) changed their recommendation. Since then the USPSTF and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advise that women ages 40-49 talk to their doctor about when they should begin screening and how often and that women ages 50 and older have screening mammograms every 2 years. The new USPSTF guidelines have been quite controversial and many organizations continue to promote the former recommendation. Many insurance policies cover mammograms beginning at age 40, and as Affordable Care Act states that insurance companies should ...
We are on a mission to build awareness through the wisdom and experiences of survivors. We visit high schools and colleges around the country sharing journeys and educating audiences. Our survivors want students to know every individual is his/her own best advocate for their bodies. We participate in events around the world to raise awareness of male breast cancer. We attend conferences, so we can become more knowledgeable and advocate. Until we educate everyone, including the medical community concerning the need for more testing and clinical trials focusing on men with breast cancer, our mission continues to be an uphill battle.. ...

Since the fall of 2011, I have assisted with the General Biology courses at SLU in fall and spring semesters, teaching two lab sections and coordinating with other Gen Bio team members. In 1998, I earned a B.S. in Ecology and Environmental Biology with a concentration in Geography from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. During my undergraduate studies, I received extensive biological training at the organismal level, including systematic botany, mycology, ornithology, and mammalogy. I continued my education at ASU earning a M.S. in Biology in 2001. For my masters thesis, I compared fungal communities in high elevation spruce-fir and northern hardwood forests of the Blue Ridge Mountains, specifically examining hypogeous fungi, or mushrooms that fruit underground (gourmet truffles are part of this group). During this research, I learned how to extract fungal DNA both from fruiting bodies as well as from the mycorrhizae occurring on tree roots. I continued with fungal field research in the ...
I have found several fossils in one rock that I believe is crystalline. It has holes like pegmatite, but if you follow the fossil track, the body seems to go into these holes and out the other side. I live off of Hwy 421, a few miles south of the Blue Ridge Parkway between Boone and N. Wilkesboro, NC. There are also a few gold flakes in the stone. The rocks on my land are mostly pegmatite, granite, mica, quartz, rhodonite and small gold deposits (especially alluvial). I would like to know a local source for more information on the fossil rock. We are near Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. We are also close to the Mineral Museum in Little Switzerland on the parkway. Thank you. Andrea [email protected] ...
