Correlates of intentions to obtain genetic counseling and colorectal cancer gene testing among at-risk relatives from three ethnic groups. (1/1341)

OBJECTIVES: An understanding of factors associated with interest in genetic counseling and intentions to obtain colorectal cancer susceptibility testing is an important foundation for developing education, counseling, and genetic services and policies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A survey was mailed to first-degree relatives of patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer. The respondents (n = 426, 77% response rate) are siblings and adult children of Caucasian, Japanese, and Hawaiian ethnicity. Data collection was guided by a conceptual framework and included questions on demographics, family cancer history, predisposing factors (cancer worry, perceived risk, well-being), and enabling factors (decision preferences, social support, and health care factors). Logistic regression analysis on two binary dependent variables (interest in counseling and intentions to get genetic testing) was performed using Generalized Estimating Equations to account for family clusters. RESULTS: Forty-five % of respondents were interested in genetic counseling, and 26% "definitely" intended to get genetic testing for colon cancer when available. For counseling interest, the most important predictors were education, Hawaiian ethnicity, cancer worry, and family support. Cancer worry, perceived risk, and age (older) were directly, and Japanese ethnicity was inversely, associated with testing intentions. CONCLUSIONS: High rates of interest in cancer genetic testing are similar to those found in other studies. Ethnic differences reveal a paradox between objective population risk (higher for Japanese) and greater concerns (among Hawaiians). The substantial lack of awareness of family history warrants further research. Culturally sensitive education and counseling are needed for managing the likely high demand for personalized information about hereditary cancer risk.  (+info)

Cancer screening practices among primary care physicians serving Chinese Americans in San Francisco. (2/1341)

Previous research has reported a lack of regular cancer screening among Chinese Americans. The overall objectives of this study were to use a mail survey of primary care physicians who served Chinese Americans in San Francisco to investigate: a) the attitudes, beliefs, and practices regarding breast, cervical, and colon cancer screening and b) factors influencing the use of these cancer screening tests. The sampling frame for our mail survey consisted of: a) primary care physicians affiliated with the Chinese Community Health Plan and b) primary care physicians with a Chinese surname listed in the Yellow Pages of the 1995 San Francisco Telephone Directory. A 5-minute, self-administered questionnaire was developed and mailed to 80 physicians, and 51 primary care physicians completed the survey. A majority reported performing regular clinical breast examinations (84%) and teaching their patients to do self-breast examinations (84%). However, the rate of performing Pap smears was only 61% and the rate of ordering annual mammograms for patients aged 50 and older was 63%. The rates of ordering annual fecal occult blood testing and sigmoidoscopy at regular intervals of three to five years among patients aged 50 and older were 69% and 20%, respectively. Barriers (patient-specific, provider-specific, and practice logistics) to using cancer screening tests were identified. The data presented in this study provide a basis for developing interventions to increase performance of regular cancer screening among primary care physicians serving Chinese Americans. Cancer screening rates may be improved by targeting the barriers to screening identified among these physicians. Strategies to help physicians overcome these barriers are discussed.  (+info)

Urinary excretion of 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP) in White, African-American, and Asian-American men in Los Angeles County. (3/1341)

Meats, such as beef, pork, poultry, and fish, cooked at high temperatures produce heterocyclic aromatic amines, which have been implicated indirectly as etiological agents involved in colorectal and other cancers in humans. This study examined the urinary excretion of a mutagenic/carcinogenic heterocyclic aromatic amine, 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP), among 45 African-American, 42 Asian-American (Chinese or Japanese), and 42 non-Hispanic white male residents of Los Angeles who consumed an unrestricted diet. Total PhIP (free and conjugated) was isolated from overnight urine collections, purified by immunoaffinity chromatography, and then quantified by high-pressure liquid chromatography combined with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. Geometric mean levels of PhIP in Asian-Americans and African-Americans were approximately 2.8-fold higher than in whites. The urinary excretion levels of PhIP were not associated with intake frequencies of any cooked meat based on a self-administered dietary questionnaire, in contrast to our earlier finding (Ji et al., Cancer Epidemiol. Biomark. Prev., 3: 407-411, 1994) of a positive and statistically significant association between bacon intake and the urinary level of 2-amino-3,8-dimethylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoxaline (MeIQx) among this same group of study subjects. Although there is a statistically significant association between urinary levels of PhIP and MeIQx (2-sided P = 0.001), 10 subjects (8%) displayed extreme discordance between urinary PhIP and MeIQx levels. Several factors, including variable contents of heterocyclic aromatic amines in food, enzymic and interindividual metabolic differences, and analytical methodology determine the degree of concordance between the urinary excretion levels of PhIP and MeIQx. Accordingly, urinary excretion levels of a single heterocyclic aromatic amine can only serve as an approximate measure of another in estimating exposure to these compounds in humans consuming unrestricted diets.  (+info)

Survival advantage in Asian American end-stage renal disease patients. (4/1341)

Survival advantage in Asian American end-stage renal disease patients. BACKGROUND: An earlier study documented a lower mortality risk for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients in Japan compared with the United States. We compared the mortality of Caucasian (white) and Asian American dialysis patients in the United States to evaluate whether Asian ancestry was associated with lower mortality in the United States. METHODS: The study sample from the U.S. Renal Data System census of ESRD patients treated in the United States included 84,192 white or Asian patients starting dialysis during May 1995 to April 1997, of whom 18,435 died by April 30, 1997. Patient characteristics were described by race. Relative mortality risks (RRs) for Asian Americans relative to whites were analyzed by Cox proportional hazards regression models adjusting for characteristics and comorbidities. Population death rates were derived from vital statistics for the United States and Japan by age and sex. RESULTS: Adjusting for demographics, diabetes, comorbidities, and nutritional factors, the RR for Asian Americans was 0.75 (P = 0.0001). Race-specific background population death rates accounted for over half of the race-related mortality difference. For whites, mortality decreased as the body mass index (BMI) increased. For Asians, the relationship between BMI and survival was u-shaped. The ratio of Asian American/white dialysis death rates and the ratio of Asian American/white general population death rates both varied by age in a similar pattern. The population death rates of Asian American and Japanese were also similar. CONCLUSION: Among dialysis patients, Asian Americans had a markedly lower adjusted RR than whites. The effect of BMI on survival differed by race. Compared with the respective general population, dialysis patients had the same relative increase in death rates for both races. The difference in death rates between the United States and Japan does not appear to be primarily treatment related, but rather is related to background death rates.  (+info)

Genetic and dietary predictors of CYP2E1 activity: a phenotyping study in Hawaii Japanese using chlorzoxazone. (5/1341)

Cytochrome P4502E1 (CYP2E1) is considered to play an important role in the metabolic activation of procarcinogens such as N-nitrosoamines and low molecular weight organic compounds. An RsaI polymorphism is present in the 5'-flanking region of the CYP2E1 gene, which could possibly affect its transcription. However, the relationship between genotype and the phenotypic catalytic activity of the enzyme has not been defined. Also, the effects in humans of specific dietary factors, other than ethanol, which have been shown in animal and in vitro studies to modulate CYP2E1 activity, are unknown. Accordingly, the CYP2E1-mediated metabolism of chlorzoxazone to its 6-hydroxy metabolite was investigated in 50 healthy Japanese of both sexes in Hawaii. The oral clearance of the in vivo probe, the trait measure of CYP2E1 activity, was smaller than that reported in European-Americans. Significantly, after adjustment for age and sex, the oral clearance of chlorzoxazone decreased with the number of variant c2 alleles, and its mean in the c2/c2 genotype (147 ml/min) was statistically lower (P < or = 0.05) than that for either the homozygous wild-type (238 ml/min) or the heterozygote (201 ml/min) genotypes. Stepwise multiple regression analysis indicated that body weight was a major contributor to the interindividual variability in the oral clearance of chlorzoxazone, accounting for 43% of the variance. Consumption of lettuce, broccoli, and black tea explained additional components of the variability (7, 5, and 6%, respectively), as did medication use (3%), age (4%), and CYP2E1 genotype (5%). Overall, 73% of the variance could be accounted for by these variables. Body weight, lettuce, and use of medications were associated with increased CYP2E1 activity, and the other covariates were associated with reduced enzyme function. Because of the role that CYP2E1 plays in procarcinogen activation, especially of N-nitrosamines involved in lung cancer, the identified factors may account in part for observed differences in individual susceptibility to disease and may also have implications for cancer prevention.  (+info)

Cervical cancer screening among Cambodian-American women. (6/1341)

Southeast Asian women have higher invasive cervical cancer incidence rates and lower Pap testing frequencies than most other racial/ethnic groups in the United States. However, there is little information about the cervical cancer screening behavior of Cambodian-American women. Cambodian residents of Seattle were surveyed in person during late 1997 and early 1998. The PRECEDE model was used to guide the development of items that assessed predisposing, reinforcing, and enabling factors associated with cervical cancer screening participation. The estimated overall survey response was 72%. Four hundred thirteen women completed our questionnaire. Approximately one-quarter (24%) of the respondents had never had a Pap test, and over one-half (53%) had not been screened recently. The following variables were positively associated with a history of at least one Pap smear: younger age, greater number of years since immigration, belief about Pap testing for postmenopausal women, prenatal care in the United States, and physician recommendation. Women who believed in karma were less likely to have ever been screened for cervical cancer than those who did not. Six variables independently predicted recent screening: age; beliefs about regular checkups, cervical cancer screening for sexually inactive women, and the prolongation of life; having a female doctor; and a previous physician recommendation for Pap testing. The study findings indicate that culturally specific approaches might be effective in modifying the cervical cancer screening behavior of immigrant women. Programs targeting Cambodian-Americans are likely to be more effective if they are multifaceted and simultaneously address predisposing, reinforcing, and enabling factors.  (+info)

Reproducibility and validity of radioimmunoassays for urinary hormones and metabolites in pre- and postmenopausal women. (7/1341)

The reproducibility of RIAs of circulating sex hormones has been evaluated as part of recent epidemiological investigations, but none seem to have addressed the reproducibility or validity of RIAs for urinary hormones or their metabolites. As part of a case-control study of breast cancer in Asian-American women, 12-h overnight urine samples were obtained, and a methodological study was conducted to identify laboratories capable of assaying urinary hormones. For the reproducibility component of this study, two laboratories with extensive experience in hormone assays measured urinary estrone, estradiol, estriol, pregnanediol glucuronide, and estrone glucuronide using samples from 15 women (5 midfollicular, 5 midluteal, and 5 postmenopausal). Variance estimates from these measurements were used to calculate the laboratory variability (coefficient of variation) and to assess the magnitude of the biological variability among the women in relation to the total variability (intraclass correlation coefficient). For the validity component, urinary estrone, estradiol, and estriol levels were measured in the same samples by gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy in the laboratory of Dr. Herman Adlercreutz (University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland). We found that the degree of assay reproducibility differed between the laboratories, but that laboratory variability was usually low compared with the range of hormone values among women, particularly for the estrogens. Values for estrone and estradiol were well correlated among all of the laboratories. For estriol, the RIAs tended to overestimate levels compared with gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy. In one laboratory, assays for pregnanediol glucuronide and estrone glucuronide were consistently reproduced; in the other, the reproducibility of the RIA for pregnanediol glucuronide was problematic, and estrone glucuronide was not measured. Despite some limitations, urinary hormones and their metabolites can be reliably measured by current RIAs in large investigations attempting to link hormone level to disease risk and may be particularly advantageous for studies of postmenopausal women, where serum concentrations of estrone and estradiol are low and assay measurements are not as dependable.  (+info)

Ethnicity and birthplace in relation to tumor size and stage in Asian American women with breast cancer. (8/1341)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined whether Asian American women with breast cancer have tumor characteristics associated with delayed detection of their disease. METHODS: Breast cancer size and stage were examined in relation to subjects' ethnic group and birthplace, on the basis of Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program data. RESULTS: Asian-born Asian American women with breast cancer had a greater proportion of tumors larger than 1 cm at diagnosis (79%) than did US White women (70%) (P < .001). In contrast, the proportion of tumors larger than 1 cm among Asian American women born in the United States (67%) did not differ significantly from that among US White women. CONCLUSIONS: Lower utilization of breast cancer screening by Asian-born Asian American women is probably responsible for their greater proportion of tumors larger than 1 cm relative to US White women in the study population. Interventional measures should be taken to increase the use of mammographic screening by first-generation Asian American women.  (+info)

There are marked differences in heart disease risk and occurrence among Asian-American subgroups, but data on these subgroups is limited, prompting the American Heart Association to call for more research on this fastest-growing racial/ethnic group in the U.S., according to a scientific statement published in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.. Available research shows that subgroups of Asian-Americans are at increased risk of complications and death from cardiovascular disease; however, Asian-Americans are often studied as a group, which masks the differences within this heterogeneous population, according to Latha Palaniappan, M.D., M.S., chair of the American Heart Associations Scientific Advisory on Cardiovascular Disease in Asian-Americans.. Asian-Americans represent 25 percent of all foreign-born people in the U.S. They are projected to reach nearly 34 million by 2050. Major federal surveys have only recently started to classify Asian-Americans into seven subgroups: ...

Chinese Americans have higher rates of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, resulting in higher incidences of liver cancer, compared with the general population. Methods. The authors conducted a community-based survey of HBV knowledge and preventive practices among Chinese American women in Seattle, Washington, during 1999. Results. Less than half (46%) of the respondents knew that HBV could cause liver cancer. Only 35% reported that they had been serologically tested for HBV, and most of those who knew they were susceptible (61%) had not been vaccinated. Conclusions. The findings indicate low levels of HBV knowledge, screening, and vaccination among Chinese immigrants. Targeted ...
2016 Elsevier Inc. Purpose We compared overall survival and influencing factors between Asian-American women as a whole and by subgroup with white women with cervical cancer. Methods Cervical cancer data were from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registry; socioeconomic information was from the Area Health Resource File. We used standard tests to compare characteristics between groups; the Kaplan-Meier method with log-rank test to assess overall survival and compare it between groups; and Cox proportional hazards models to determine the effect of race and other covariates on overall survival (with and/or without age stratification). Results Being 3.3 years older than white women at diagnosis (P
But little was known about risks for Asian Americans until a National Eye Institute funded study published recently in Ophthalmology journal (online). By reviewing insurance records of more than 44,000 Asian Americans older than 40, the researchers found their glaucoma risk to be 6.5 percent, which is about the same as U.S. Latinos. Racial-ethnicity risk rates help people and doctors plan for eye care and take extra precautions if appropriate. Since Asian Americans are the second fastest growing population in the U.S.- a trend likely to continue for years to come- such risk information is urgently needed.. The study also detailed the Asian American ethnic groups most likely to develop the three main types of glaucoma: open-angle (OAG, the most common form), narrow-angle (NAG), and normal-tension (NTG).. The rate of NAG was higher in Asian Americans than in any other racial group in the study and highest of all among Chinese and Vietnamese Americans. With NAG, the part of the eye that drains ...
Asian Americans are sometimes characterized as a model minority in the United States because many of their cultures encourage a strong work ethic, a respect for elders, a high degree of professional and academic success, a high valuation of family, education and religion.[167] Statistics such as high household income and low incarceration rate,[168] low rates of many diseases, and higher than average life expectancy are also discussed as positive aspects of Asian Americans.[169] The implicit advice is that the other minorities should stop protesting and emulate the Asian American work ethic and devotion to higher education. Some critics say the depiction replaces biological racism with cultural racism, and should be dropped.[170] According to the Washington Post, the idea that Asian Americans are distinct among minority groups and immune to the challenges faced by other people of color is a particularly sensitive issue for the community, which has recently fought to reclaim its place in social ...

For Northwest Asian Weekly. The Asian American community has long borne the model minority myth which has contributed to concealing the major health concerns that face members of this community.. There is currently a lack of access to linguistically and culturally competent care. Rising costs create major barriers to effective, quality health care. These barriers contribute to and exacerbate health conditions such as Hepatitis B, obesity in youth, and mental illness that already have a disproportionate effect on the Asian American population. Congress is currently debating the most significant reform for health care. There will be no better time than now to address the barriers that persist in health care for Asian Americans and other underserved communities. For an effective reform, health care legislation must address vital problems of these communities.. With few exceptions, legal immigrants must reside in the United States for five years before they are eligible for Medicaid. Moreover, ...

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE. MANAA Condemns Sony Pictures And Cameron Crowe For Continuing To Erase Asian/Pacific Islanders In Aloha Film. LOS ANGELES- Media Action Network for Asian Americans (MANAA), the only organization solely dedicated to monitoring the media and advocating balanced, sensitive and positive depiction and coverage of Asian Americans, is calling out Sony Pictures for its white-washed film Aloha which opens Friday.. Taking place in the 50th state, the movie features mostly white actors (Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel) and barely any Asian American or Pacific Islanders. 60% of Hawaiis population is AAPIs, says MANAA Founding President and former Hawaii resident Guy Aoki. Caucasians only make up 30% of the population, but from watching this film, youd think they made up 90%. This comes in a long line of films (The Descendants, 50 First Dates, Blue Crush, Pearl Harbor) that uses Hawaii for its ...

CDC has launched Know Hepatitis B, the first national multilingual communications campaign to increase testing for hepatitis B among Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, one of the groups hardest hit by the disease in the United States. The campaign aims to reach millions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, particularly those who need information in their native languages, with the message that if you or your parents were born in Asia or the Pacific Islands, get tested for hepatitis B. CDC is conducting the campaign in partnership with Hep B United, a nationwide coalition of community organizations working to increase hepatitis B awareness and testing, especially among Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Know Hepatitis B addresses an unmet need for culturally relevant hepatitis B education and awareness in languages of communities most affected by the disease in the United States. The campaign was developed with input from experts and community members from around the country. ...
The School of Public Healths Dr. Sunmin Lee has received a $3.6 million National Institutes of Health RO1 award to address significant cancer disparities in Asian Americans. The study, titled Culturally Adapted Multilevel Decision Support Navigation Trial to Reduce Colorectal Cancer Disparity among At-Risk Asian American Primary Care Patients will be led by Dr. Lee, an associate professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, who is the principal investigator. The research team also includes UMD School of Public Health faculty co-investigators Dr. Xin He (epidemiology and biostatistics) and Dr. Cheryl Holt (behavioral and community health).. Cancer is the leading cause of death among Asian Americans, and colorectal cancer specifically is the second most common cause of cancer deaths for this group. The higher mortality rates could in part be attributed to substantially lower screening rates among Chinese and Korean Americans compared to other racial or ethnic groups. To get ...
Why are Asian Americans at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes than Caucasian Americans, and prone to develop the disease at lower body weights? One part of this puzzle may lie in the transition from traditional high-fiber, low-fat Asian diets to current westernized diets, which may pose extra risks for those of Asian heritage, says George King, M.D., Senior Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer at Joslin Diabetes Center and the senior author of the study.. A Joslin randomized clinical trial now has demonstrated that both Asian Americans and Caucasian Americans at risk of type 2 diabetes who adopted a rigorously controlled traditional Asian diet lowered their insulin resistance. (A leading risk factor for developing the disease, insulin resistance is a condition in which the body struggles to use the hormone insulin, which helps to metabolize sugar.). Moreover, when both groups of participants then switched to consuming typical western fare, the Asian Americans experienced greater ...

Asian-Americans are one of the nations most astonishing success stories. In 1960, they accounted for less than 1 percent of the U.S. population but had a rich history of persecution-from the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 to the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Back then, no one could have imagined what lay ahead. Today, nearly 5 percent of Americans have Asian ancestry, tracing to countries from India to Japan. The Pew Research Center reports that they are the highest-income, best-educated and fastest-growing racial group in the United States. They are overrepresented in fields like medicine, engineering and computer science. In Silicon Valley, they hold half of the tech jobs. For immigrants once associated with menial or subservient work, the transformation has been titanic. But some things have stayed the same-such as the representation of Asian-Americans at Harvard, the nations oldest and most prestigious university. In 1992, they made up 19.1 percent of the ...

As noted by David Li and scores of others, one of the central preoccupations of Asian American studies since its founding in the late 1960s has been how to define Asian America. Two assumptions motivate this long-standing critical discourse: first, that the label, which is almost universally acknowledged to be incommensurate to the experiences of Asians living in the United States, can nevertheless capture the existence of groups and individuals who might otherwise be ignored or marginalized, and second, that the idea of Asian America is useful and perhaps even necessary in fighting for the political visibility of the various groups and communities that it claims to represent. Thus, the questions surrounding how to define Asian America are really questions about inclusion: who can be counted in [End Page 182] Asian America, and how can these Asian Americans be incorporated into the US body politic?. The narrative of Asian America as inclusion underwent a jolting and paradigmatic shift with the ...

ALBANY, N.Y (July 29, 2015) - New research from the University at Albany shows that Asian-American heart failure patients are more likely than their white counterparts to have chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and renal disease.. The study, conducted by Feng Qian, an assistant professor of health policy and management at UAlbanys School of Public Health, examined the clinical profile, quality of care, and health outcomes of over 150,000 patients with heart failure. Of those, 3,774 were Asian-American. The study was published in the June 15 in the International Journal of Cardiology. Overall, he found Asian-American patients had comparable quality of care, but were less likely to receive medicine upon discharge from the hospital, including diuretics called aldosterone antagonists and blood thinners for abnormal heart rhythm.. The study also showed Asian-American patients were on average younger, more likely to be male, and to not have insurance or covered by Medicaid. Compared ...

The New York Times compiled a feature, Fatal Police Encounters in New York City, which includes notable deaths since 1990 involving New York Police Department officers. Most did not lead to criminal charges; even fewer resulted in convictions, concluded the report. Liang was the first New York City officer to be convicted in a shooting in the line of duty in more than a decade.. But when Asians and Asian-Americans confront the question of why Liang in particular received a sentence, we are requesting white privilege. Here, I do not mean all Asian-Americans are indifferent towards Gurleys death, but please be mindful of what message we are sending out to the society when we protest for Liang. We are further alienating ourselves from other minority groups.. Asians have long been labeled as the model minority and have been almost absent in recent social-justice movements. It is good news that Asian-American voices are finally heard in society. But, as an Asian, I am embarrassed that the ...
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 ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Examining the gastric cancer survival gap between Asians and whites in the United States. AU - Jin, Hongbin. AU - Pinheiro, Paulo S.. AU - Callahan, Karen E.. AU - Altekruse, Sean F.. PY - 2017/7/1. Y1 - 2017/7/1. N2 - Background: Globally, Asian countries bear a disproportionate gastric cancer burden. Asian Americans, the fastest growing minority population in the US, have higher gastric cancer survival than non-Hispanic whites (NHWs) despite higher incidence. Benefitting from uniform cancer registry standards within the US, we examine for the first time the heterogeneity in the Asian American population, which may elucidate the causes of these disparities. Methods: SEER gastric cancer data from 2000 to 2012 were used to calculate 5-year survival estimates for NHWs and the six largest Asian ethnicities. Multivariate analyses were performed to identify critical prognostic factors and survival disparities between Asian groups and NHWs. Results: We analyzed 33,313 NHW and 8473 ...
By: Laila Mehta, Director, Civic Engagement Fund. In July, I had the privilege of attending the National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliances (NQAPIA) leadership summit for leaders of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Asian American, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) organizations. In an effort to walk the talk on Pacific Islander (PI) inclusion and educate the mainly Asian American participants of their gathering, NQAPIA worked with Native Hawaiian and PI institutions and people to host special sessions for Pacific Islander LGBT leaders and students, and to provide educational opportunities for the rest of us to better understand the context for Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders.. Prior to this gathering, I was already somewhat familiar with NQAPIA and a few local AAPI LGBT organizations through AAPIPs Queer Justice Fund BRIDGE program that builds their organizational and collective capacities via trainings, webinars and convenings. The five groups ...
Research Shows African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Asian Americans are more Likely to Develop Certain Vision Conditions, Yet May Not Be Getting the Eye Care They Need. Pinellas Park, Fla. /PRNewswire/ - With culturally diverse populations continuing to grow in the United States, many of which are at increased risk for developing certain vision conditions as compared to the general population, Transitions Optical reveals additional evidence that African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Asian Americans are not taking the proper steps to care for their eyes.. According to a recent report by Prevent Blindness America, there has been an increase over the past decade in cases of visual impairment or blindness in American adults, including an 89 percent increase in vision conditions related to diabetes. This increase is the result of a national diabetic epidemic in general; however, it is also likely connected to the increase of culturally diverse populations in the United States, who are at ...
NCI provided funding to field cancer control items on CHIS in 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, and 2011-2012. The questions included in these survey years covered topics including cancer risk factors, cancer screening behaviors, and cancer diagnosis. The CHIS cancer control questions are comparable to the Cancer Control Supplement questions of the National Health Interview Survey. Data are reported for most counties and the largest cities in the state, and are therefore useful for estimating at the local level. Because racial and ethnic subpopulations are so well represented in California, CHIS enables investigators to better estimate health-related behaviors, use of health services, and cancer risk factors in these groups. Groups of particular interest include African-Americans, Latinos and Hispanics, American Indians and Alaska Natives, and Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders.. CHIS is led by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research ...

Child sexual abuse affects thousands of families each year. Issues pertaining to the prevalence, identification, and treatment of sexual abuse have been relatively well explored in the literature as they pertain to the dominant European American culture. These issues, however, are still relatively unexplored in terms of how sexual abuse affects Asian American families and the Asian American community. We review the relevant literature in Asian American families. These matters are explored in the context of Asian American values such as collectivity, conformity, inconspicuousness, middle position virtue, shame, self-control, and fatalism. Attitudes toward family, sexuality, and the mental health system are also discussed. Cultural and institutional barriers to underutilizing mental health services are also explored, and suggestions for overcoming these barriers are offered.
Download (PDF, 1.1MB). HARVEY DONGS AAPI HISTORY GRID. Most undergraduate students are required to write an average of 20 papers or more by the time they graduate. Finding a topic is often a challenge. Then, days are spent to complete a paper that will be read by one TA and sometime a professor with the aim of receiving a good grade. Thereafter, the paper is often forgotten.. We at AAPIHRG would like to add another dimension to this exercise. We hope that there are topics that will expand the learning experience of students as well as the data base of AAPI community health. As students of community health research know, health data for the AAPI communities are very uneven and scarce for some populations. If you need to write a paper, see if you can tailor your topic and paper that will enrich our understanding of the AAPI communities.. Dr. Harvey Dongs history grid provides us with the historical, social and political framework for understanding the many AAPI communities. We hope to add the ...
Osteoporosis is a major public health threat for an estimated 44 million Americans, or 55 percent of the people 50 years of age and older. In the U.S., 10 million individuals are estimated to already have the disease and almost 34 million are estimated to have low bone mass, placing them at increased risk for osteoporosis. By the year 2010, it is estimated that over 52 million women and men in this same age category will be affected, and if current trends continue, the figure will climb up to over 61 million by 2020 according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation.. Being Asian is a risk factor for osteoporosis. Having a thin, small boned frame (or low bone mass), low physical activity and low calcium intake also are risk factors. As much as 90% of Asian Americans may be lactose intolerant, therefore obtaining calcium from dairy products proves problematic. As a result of osteoporosis, vertebral or spinal fracture occurrence is high among Asian American women.. ...
PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:. I. Evaluate the efficacy of lay health worker (LHW) outreach on colorectal cancer (CRC) screening among 3 Asian American groups (Filipinos, Hmong, and Koreans) in a cluster randomized controlled trial (RCT) comparing CRC education delivered by LHWs (intervention) to a CRC brochure and nutrition education (control).. II. Examine the processes through which LHWs communicate with, connect to, and convince community members from 3 Asian American cultures of the importance of CRC screening using mixed methods.. OUTLINE: Lay health workers (LHWs) are randomized to 1 of 2 groups.. GROUP I (CRC EDUCATION): LHWs undergo training over 3 days and recruit 15 participants from their social network. Participants attend a CRC educational session conducted by an LWH over 90 minutes at month 1 and 3. Participants receive phone calls from the LWH at months 2 and 4 reminding them about CRC screening.. GROUP II (CRC BROCHURE): LHWs undergo training over 3 days and recruit 15 participants from ...
It has been widely assumed that for a given BMI, Asians have higher percent body fat (PBF) than whites, and that the BMI threshold for defining obesity in Asians should be lower than the threshold for whites. This study sought to test this assumption by comparing the PBF between US white and Vietnamese women. The study was designed as a comparative cross-sectional investigation. In the first study, 210 Vietnamese women ages between 50 and 85 were randomly selected from various districts in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam). In the second study, 419 women of the same age range were randomly selected from the Rancho Bernardo Study (San Diego, CA). In both studies, lean mass (LM) and fat mass (FM) were measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) (QDR 4500; Hologic). PBF was derived as FM over body weight. Compared with Vietnamese women, white women had much more FM (24.8 +/- 8.1 kg vs. 18.8 +/- 4.9 kg; P | 0.0001) and greater PBF (36.4 +/- 6.5% vs. 35.0 +/- 6.2%; P = 0.012). However, there was no
A group of current and former Asian-American officers of the San Gabriel Police Department claim they were routinely harassed and discriminated against - both by other officers using slurs and stereotypes and by the departments leadership, who they say passed them up for promotion after complaining about the alleged abuses, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday.. The lawsuit claims San Gabriel police maintained a racially hostile work environment in which they were demeaned on a nearly daily basis, including other officers using mock Asian accents when speaking to them, as well as comments on their physical appearance and stereotypes about Asian culture.. Bernard Alexander III, a partner with Santa Monica-based Alexander Krakow & Glick, which is representing the officers, called the allegations in the lawsuit ironic given the police department serves a majority Asian-American community.. The most recent U.S. Census figures show more than 60 percent of San Gabriel residents are ...

From the Barefoot Doctor program in China to the promotores model in the United States, community health workers (CHWs) have supported public health for almost half a century (1). Their efforts, especially in health education and making referrals, have helped to prevent, treat, and manage chronic as well as infectious diseases. However a relatively new field must be explored: the potential of CHWs in mental health. Asians and Asian Americans require special attention in this area. According to the California Health Interview Survey 2009, more than half of the states Asian American population who needed help with mental/emotional/substance abuse issues did not receive treatment. Latinos have a very similar profile. The ethnicities with the lowest rates of treatment are Vietnamese (34.2%), Koreans (18.3%), and other (6%). The last category may include Hmong, who have been depicted in recent journal articles as having high prevalence of depression yet with severe lack of mental health literacy and ...
In this discussion, we see so many different issues are being touched upon. 1) Immigration, legal and illegal; 2) Income Tax and welfare; 3) Recrimination of race and sex and Age; To me, it comes down to one thing: profit. Individual need profit, family need profit, company need profit, that drive each group doing something best to their interest. We should take a view on this important issue from interest of USA as a whole: 1)Do we need more STEM immigrants to stay competitive? Competing against China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, India? 2)Shall we recruit people based on racial percentage or their capability? For the first question, many of you will agree, we need more highly technical skillful engineer and scientist to enter USA, right now EU, Canada, Japan, Australia all allocate high percentage of immigration quota to technical immigrant. USA better continue to attract the world best engineer and scientist to stay competitive as a nation. Apple already lost its crown to Samsung on smart phone, ...

Efforts to reduce health disparities among Chinese American elderly in the U.S. are significantly hampered by the lack of disaggregated epidemiological and behavioral data on older Asian Americans. A more sophisticated understanding of culture is also required to move towards addressing health disparities in older ages, in particular understanding culture-bound factors that contribute to preventive health activities and health care use. In order to address these challenges, this study applies the Andersen Model of Health Care Utilization to analyze the relevance of different measures of acculturation and identify consistent patterns of predisposing, enabling, and need factors that are associated with five different preventive health activities and self-reported health for older Chinese Americans, ages 50 and over. The study also examines the additional impact of proximity to ethnic enclaves on those outcomes. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved ...

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 ...
Objectives: Unlike other cancer screening tests, which rely on early detection, colorectal cancer screening (CRS) provides an opportunity for prevention since most colorectal cancer (CRC) begin as a benign polyp. However, over 20 million people age 50 to 75 in the U.S. have never undergone CRS. Furthermore, lower screening rates were observed among minority groups, especially immigrants with low English proficiency (LEP). Asian Americans are now the most rapidly growing minority and immigrant group in the U.S. The purpose of this study was to understand 5 different Asian subgroups beliefs, attitudes, and perceived controls on CRS.. Methods: This study is part of a larger government funded study to create an infrastructure for sustainable research and dissemination of evidence-based medicine. The partnerships include five different Asian-American subgroups in the Chicago Metropolitan area: Cambodian, Chinese, Korean, Laotian and Vietnamese. The focus groups were facilitated by partner ...

Source: Authors analysis of the American Community Survey These results provide important evidence of population-level changes in coverage disparities under the ACA. Granular, disaggregated estimates like these can facilitate efforts to address health disparities for specific subgroups. Important differences in health-related outcomes between AANHPI subgroups are hidden when considered together as a single group. Similar challenges exist in other populations, where pan-racial or pan-ethnic classifications (such as Latino), often belie large within-group differences.. It is rare for policies to eliminate racial/ethnic disparities. In that context, the virtual elimination of the disparity in health insurance coverage between AANHPI and Whites that existed prior to the ACA represents a notable development. Reaching the AANHPI population to gain health insurance coverage has always represented a special challenge, given its notable heterogeneity with respect to culture, language, nativity, ...
The condition puts them at far greater risk than other Americans for deadly diseases like liver cancer and cirrhosis. Most of the people tested had no idea that they were infected, a fact that frustrates doctors who know that with proper screening and treatment, the disease can be controlled, if not cured. But three-quarters of the people in the study had no health insurance, and even those who did had trouble getting coverage for screening.. The study, led by researchers at New York University School of Medicine, found that 15 percent of east Asians in New York - as many as 100,000 people - are chronic hepatitis carriers, with the rate highest among immigrants from China. That infection rate is 35 times the rate found in the general population. The New York State cancer registry shows rates of liver cancer among Asian-Americans 6 to 10 times as high as for whites.. Because Hepatitis B is endemic in many Asian countries, growth in the number of Asian immigrants in New York and across the country ...
Gregory Navas trenchant but human examination of the American migration experience. In this documentary the much celebrated Hispanic filmmaker (El Norte, Mi Familia, Selena, etc.) explores the very personal accounts of five American families from a variety of enthnic and racial backgrounds. An elderly Polish Jew relates his arrival at Ellis Island as a seven year-old boy in the 1920s. A Chinese-born grandmother from Oakland, California recalls her own childhood arrival on Angel Island in San Francisco Bay in the early 1930s. Unlike the Ellis Island experience, which was a happy and welcoming one, her arrival thrust her into an atmosphere charged with racial tension, discrimination and hostility. An African-American woman, the daughter of a slave, describes her childhood on a sharecroppers farm in Alabama and her eventual migration to Chicago. In the films most emotionally powerful moment, he follows a young Mexican woman as she risks her life clandestinely crossing the border into the ...
Background: Recent studies have found low-normal potassium (K) to be associated with increased diabetes risk. We sought to verify these associations in a multi-ethnic US cohort; and to determine if these associations extend to US Hispanics and Asian-Americans. Methods: We analyzed data from Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) participants who were free-of-diabetes at baseline. We examined cross-sectional associations between measures of K-serum, dietary, and urine-with fasting glucose and HOMA-IR. We examined longitudinal associations between K and diabetes risk over 8 years. Findings: In multivariable models, compared to those with higher serum K (≥4.5mmol/L), those with lower serum K (,4.0mmol/L) had significantly higher fasting glucose [1.3 mg/dL (95%CI 0.2, 2.4), P-value = 0.03]. Incident diabetes developed in 1281 of 5415 at-risk participants. In minimally-adjusted models, we found inverse associations between serum and dietary K and diabetes risk. Compared to those with higher ...

According to the U.S. Census Bureau (2012), Asian-Americans were the fastest growing minority group from 2000 to 2010. This population is expected to double by 2060. Moreover, outbound Asian tourism to the U.S. is increasing rapidly, at least for some travel markets. For example, the National Travel and Tourism Office (U.S. Department of Commerce, 2014) reported the number of Chinese tourists in the U.S. had increased over 450% from 2007 to 2014, and 40% of them visited a national park/monument on their trip (approximately 875,000 visitors). Despite a growing resident population and burgeoning travel market, the number of Asian visitors at most national parks is insignificant compared to other market segments according to reports published by the Visitor Services Project at the University of Idaho. However, one NPS study indicated that 29% of Asians visited at least one national park within a 24-month period (Solop, Hagen, & Ostergren, 2003). Although many Asians can speak English, one reason ...
Malcolm Williams, a Rand Corp. health policy researcher, said another reason for the insurance gap could be the fear of revealing personal information to the government on health insurance applications if some family members are undocumented.. Asians, on the other hand, have had a smoother path to immigration over the decades. Many have been sponsored for immigration by relatives in the U.S., or have education, employment or investment ties here that eased their quest for American citizenship. As a result, theyve been able to start assimilating more quickly than many Latinos.. Henry Liem, a philosophy professor at San Jose City College and longtime observer of the South Bays Vietnamese emigre community, said that when many immigrants were growing up in Vietnam and other Asian countries, the only way to receive government services was to pay a bribe.. But in America, he said, Asians have learned to embrace government programs that they view as nondiscriminatory, low-cost and reliable. Liem also ...

Seventeen Teen White, Female 55% 65% Non-White, Female 4% 2% White, Male 17% 31% Non-White, Male 2% .9% One study of teen magazines pointed out that teenagers in the United States are awash in a sea of mediated texts that play a strong symbolic role in constituting their sujectivities and identities (Durham 1998, 369). Young women compare themselves to the models in articles and advertisements and studies show that long term exposure to advertisings stereotypical role portrayals may encourage women to internalize values and ideals. (Duffy 1996, 33). It can possibly be argued that the main audience for these magazines is comprised of white, female teens. But what of those who dont fit that description? What about the slightly overweight or fat girls, the African-Americans, and the not so pretty girls? What values and ideals will they internalize? A study of YM showed that only a certain type of femininity is idealized. Very few African-Americans, Asian-Americans, or Hispanic-Americans are ...

Weight loss and weight fluctuation were associated with death in men with pre-existing disease and men who smoked. The prevalence of obesity is increasing in industrialized Western societies. According to 1988 to 1991 national health statistics (1), a third of all adults in the United States were at least 20% above their ideal weight. This is a striking increase from the stable, 25% prevalence of overweight documented between 1960 and 1981. Although the health hazards of excess weight have been documented (2), the relation between obesity and morbidity is not as well understood as many other risk factor-morbidity relations. These reports from the Honolulu Heart Program and Nurses Health Study provide no startling new information, but they do advance our understanding of obesity and its risks. One source of confusion in the body mass-mortality relation is the J-shaped curve issue; that is, the observation in some studies that increased mortality is found at both the low and high ends of the body ...
In a Honolulu Heart Program cohort of 1,604 elderly men aged 70-90 years who were sampled from the most recent follow-up examination 1991-1992, current risk factor values were compared with those obtained 25 years earlier when the same men were between ages 45-64 and free of clinically diagnosed cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease...
Multiple Risk Factors for Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) among Asian Americans: Implications for Intervention. Introduction: Asian Americans have the highest mortality rates from HCC compared to all other racial/ethnic populations. Historically, mitigating their HCC risks has been through screening for hepatitis B (HBV) and providing linkage to care to those who are chronically infected; however, HCC has multiple risk factors. Besides HBV, obesity-related metabolic factors, including diabetes, and chronic hepatitis C (HCV) are becoming important risk factors for HCC. Lifestyle factors, such as alcohol and tobacco use, also increase risk of HCC. Our study is among the first to measure seven literature-documented HCC risk factors to assess the prevalence of combined risk factors in this population.. Objectives and hypothesis: We sought to measure the joint prevalence of 7 HCC risk factors in 3 domains (viral, metabolic, and lifestyle), and hypothesized that a substantial proportion of foreign-born ...
