After the abolishment of slavery, the term "Black Belt" was used to describe regions with high percentages of African Americans. The term originates from the dark soil located in regions of the Southern United States and is generally used to describe areas in the Deep South [1]. The Alabama Black Belt consists of communities that often have higher rates of poverty, low literacy levels, and poorer health outcomes compared to the rest of the country. This historically has been attributed to a variety of factors, including lack of access to adequate healthcare services, higher unemployment rates, transportation and limited access to quality health care, which impact overall healthcare outcomes across all demographics [1-3]. People who live in the Alabama Black Belt region often have co-morbidities and higher mortality rates when compared to the national average, and due to this, Alabama has some of the poorest ...
GNAHEC coordinates clinical training opportunities at community-based sites for students who are enrolled in a health professions training program. The AHEC sites bring health disparities to life for students, who see first-hand the needs of uninsured and underinsured patients. Last year alone almost 900 health professions students were trained throughout our five counties to expose them to the rewards and challenges of working with the medically needy - and possibly influence their career decisions. Research shows that health profession students who rotate through medically underserved sites are more likely to return to those communities to practice.nnThese students provided more than 185,000 hours of care to an estimated 300,000 patients, much of it in the states community/migrant health centers, health departments, rural health clinics and other sites serving the medically needy.. ...

The Epidemiologic Catchment Area (ECA) program of research was initiated in response to the 1977 report of the Presidents Commission on Mental Health. The purpose was to collect data on the prevalence and incidence of mental disorders and on the use of and need for services by the mentally ill. Independent research teams at five universities (Yale University, Johns Hopkins University, Washington University, Duke University, and University of California at Los Angeles), in collaboration with the National Institute for Mental Health, conducted the studies with a core of common questions and sample characteristics. The sites were areas that had previously been designated as Community Mental Health Center catchment areas: New Haven, Connecticut, Baltimore, Maryland, St. Louis, Missouri, Durham, North Carolina, and Los Angeles, California. Each site sampled over 3,000 community ...

BACKGROUND The purpose of this analysis was to examine: (1) the prevalence of psychiatric disorders among disabled people, using seven different measures of disability; (2) variation in disability between and within psychiatric diagnostic categories; and (3) relationship of diagnosis and disability to health service utilization. METHOD Data were drawn from Phase I and Phase II of the Eastern Baltimore Mental Health Survey, part of the Epidemiologic Catchment Area Program (ECA) conducted in 1980-1 to survey mental morbidity within the adult population. A total of 810 individuals received both a household interview and a standardized clinical psychiatric evaluation. Estimated prevalence rates were computed using appropriate survey sampling weights. RESULTS Prevalence of disability ranged from 2.5 to 19.5%, varying with specific disability measure. Among those classified as disabled by any of the measures examined, 56 to 92% had a ...

Members of a Leavenworth family have undergone treatment for rabies after their adopted kitten died and tested positive for the disease, the Leavenworth County Health Department reported this week.. The case is one of four confirmed cases of animal rabies reported to Kansas City, Jackson County and Leavenworth County health departments since May, which has led officials to urge residents to take precautions to avoid rabies.. "Metro area health departments are very vigilant in watching all suspicious animals for rabies," Sylvia Burns, Leavenworth County health director, said in a news release from the Mid-America Regional Council. "If any animal shows symptoms, please report them to authorities immediately.". Rabies is an infectious viral disease that affects the nervous system. Symptoms start with possible pain at the site of exposure, as well as flu-like symptoms such as malaise, fever or headache.. The two types of animal ...

Or does the DSM encourage an overstatement of mental illnesses? BPDFamily.com reported in November 2010 that the US Surgeon General estimates that 28% of the US population suffer from either a mental or addictive disorder in a given year. This is based on the DSM-IV. The current prevalence estimate is that about 20 percent of the U.S. population are affected by mental disorders during a given year. This estimate comes from two epidemiologic surveys: the Epidemiologic Catchment Area (ECA) study of the early 1980s and the National Comorbidity Survey (NCS) of the early 1990s. Those surveys defined mental illness according to the prevailing editions of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. The surveys estimate that during a 1-year period, 22 to 23 percent of the U.S. adult population ...

Anaphylaxis is widely understood to be an immediate life-threatening condition that can occur at all ages and frequently in subjects with a history of atopy. Data about the prevalence of the various causes of anaphylaxis is scarce, especially in children. In adults some reasonable estimates report that hymenoptera sting anaphylaxis occurs in 0.4% of the population6 and penicillin-induced anaphylaxis occurs every 10-50 cases/100 000 injections.7 In a review of patients admitted to a university hospital during 1 year there were 9 cases of anaphylaxis out of 20 000 admissions.8 In a retrospective study carried out among adult subjects, Sorensen et al9 have reported an incidence of 3.4 cases/100 000 inhabitants of anaphylactic shock per year that occurred in a hospital catchment area over a 13-year period. The precipitating agents were penicillin in 7 cases, aspirin in 3 cases, food in 2 cases, and bee or wasp stings in 8 cases. In one study of 172 anaphylactic reactions, foods, ...
The purpose of this thesis was to assess the possible risk of myocardial infarction in work entailing exposure to vibration, and to study whether there is any relation between short-term exposure to vibration and cardiac regulation.. Epidemiological methods were applied to investigate a possible association between occupational exposure to vibration and myocardial infarction. Two study populations were used; one case-control study (n=475) and one cohort of iron-ore miners in Kiruna and Malmberget, Sweden (n=13621). In the former, the cases were first-time myocardial infarction patients and the controls were selected to match for sex, age and hospital catchment area. Job-exposure matrixes for vibration were established for both the case-control study and the cohort study.. In order to study acute effects on cardiac regulation, an experimental study was conducted on healthy subjects (n=20) who were exposed to hand-arm vibration exclusively and in combination ...

Spinal and epidural anesthesia in patients receiving anticoagulant is controversial. The safety of epidural anesthesia with twice-daily dosing of LMWH is of concern and should be withheld until 24 hours after the last injection. Epidural anesthesia appears to be safe in women taking unfractionated low-dose heparin if the APTT is normal. Sometimes epidural or spinal hematomas can cause neurologic injury, including long-term or permanent paralysis (7). Prevention of Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism: Venous thromboemblism most commonly occurs in the form of deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. Alternatives for thromboprophylaxis for moderate-risk patients include the following: graduated compression stocking placed before initiation of surgery or during pregnancy and continued until the patient is fully ambulatory or at least 3 months postpartum; pneumatic compression devices placed before the initiation of surgery and continued until the patient is fully ambulatory; ...
The acquisition of a memory depends on several mechanisms. Information is received from the environment, and the senses perceive it, interpret it, and respond to it. There are three stages involved in this process. Information is acquired during the first stage; the information is taken in through the senses, perceived, and understood. If the information is visual, it enters the brain through electrical impulses coming from the retina, traveling through the optic nerve and into the cerebral cortex. A limited amount of this information is retained in short-term memory. Like a clipboard on a computer, the contents of short-term memory are constantly being lost and replaced with other information unless the contents are restored through repetition. For example, when a telephone number is looked up, it is usually remembered long enough to complete the call. This information will soon be forgotten if it is not used again for several days or weeks. However, if the number is dialed every day or several ...
In May, ePromos celebrates National Motorcycle Safety Month. This awareness holiday is in honor of the millions worldwide who travel via motorcycle. However, accidents related to motorcycles have a much higher rate of serious injury or death than passenger car. Therefore, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration set up an entire month to promote safe motorcycle initiatives.. "Share the Road with Motorcycles" is the slogan coined by the NHTSA to foster awareness for motorcycle drivers. As a promotional message, you can imprint that slogan on a variety of products, like promotional playing cards, promotional poker chips, logo card decks, and logo poker kits as a reminder for early morning commuters. Passenger car and truck drivers are urged by the NHTSA to be cognizant of their surroundings and look out for motorcycle and scooter commuters. As far as motorcycle drivers go, the NHTSA also encourages safety tips. They strongly suggest the use of protective equipment like elbow pads and ...
The Human Patient Simulator is a computer-model-driven, life-sized mannequin that delivers true-to-life scenarios. The HPS breathes, has a heartbeat and pulse, blinks and includes sophisticated modeling of physiology and pharmacology, enabling it to mimic accurately many human responses to such procedures as CPR, intravenous medications, intubation, ventilation, and catheterization. The trainee then learns to care for patients by simulating a clinical operation.. The pulmonary system on the HPS is self-regulating. Air movement in the lungs makes gas exchange possible. On inspiration, a gas analyzer determines what the mannequin is breathing (air, O2, or an anesthetic). Based on the bodys requirements, the lung system automatically adjusts the respiratory rate and tidal volume. Breath sounds are auscultated by standard stethoscopes in several locations to detect abnormalities, such as wheezes or crackles. Sound is correlated to lung movement, so the absence of sounds in one or both lungs is ...
Dust mites are a common cause of allergy problems. Dust mites live up to 4 months. Each female can lay 100 eggs. Dust mites eat dead skin flakes and produce waste called fecal pellets. One mite may produce 20 fecal pellets a day. The pellets remain long after the mite is gone. Allergy problems are mainly caused by these fecal pellets. Dust mites like to live in warm, moist places (temperature 20 to 25C, humidity above 50%). Anyone with a dust mite allergy should try to avoid them. This may decrease allergy problems and the need for medicine.. ...
The month of May is designated as Tay-Sachs and Canavan Diseases Awareness Month. Newborns with Tay-Sachs disease appear healthy at birth, but then symptoms start to occur at 6 months. The infant will start to lose motor skills and mental functions. Soon after, they become blind, deaf, mentally retarded, paralyzed, non-responsive to their environment and will eventually die by the age of 5. Tay-Sachs disease is caused by a lack of an enzyme called Hexosaminidase A (Hex A), which is needed for the body to break down the fatty waste substances that are found in the brain cells. Without Hex A, this substance accumulates abnormally and causes gradual damage until the nervous system shuts down completely and can no longer sustain life.. Newborns with Canavan disease also appear healthy at birth. However, at the ages of 3 and 9 months, subtle changes will start to occur. These changes include visual inattentiveness, inability to grasp objects, roll over, or like Tay-Sachs disease, ...

Reducing spatial access disparities to healthcare services is a growing priority for healthcare planners especially among developed countries with aging populations. There is thus a pressing need to determine which populations do not enjoy access to healthcare, yet efforts to quantify such disparities in spatial accessibility have been hampered by a lack of satisfactory measurements and methods. This study compares an optimised and the conventional version of the two-step floating catchment area (2SFCA) method to assess spatial accessibility to medical clinics in Montreal. We first computed catchments around existing medical clinics of Montreal Island based on the shortest network distance. Population nested in dissemination areas were used to determine potential users of a given medical clinic. To optimize the method, medical clinics (supply) were weighted by the number of physicians ...
An example of her seed-to-garden performance was a federal and state bioterrorism grant in 2003. Her submission garnered the fledgling disaster response effort a first-place ranking among all other grant proposals in the country. Through that $6 million from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, she directed a five-year disaster preparedness project that trained more than 30,000 health professionals, first responders, health profession students, and volunteers in disaster response awareness and performance. The project resulted in development of the first dental forensic team in South Carolina enabling identification of disaster victims from dental records, she explained ...
The green areas on the map denote hospital service areas that spent below the nation of average of $8,176 per patient (averaged from 2004 to 2006) for Medicare patients. The brown areas spent above the national average. The white areas represent urban hospital service areas, and in a few cases, areas with no data. When comparing rural areas, the researchers used data that is adjusted for differences in race, sex and age. (It is important to recognize that "the Dartmouth research" includes years of studies. Different studies analyze the data in different ways. When comparing medical centers, Dartmouth researchers have adjusted for differences in the patients income and local prices as well.) There are, of course, many variables to consider: "Research has shown that some of the variation is due to differences in the prices paid for similar services, and some is due to differences in illness," ...

After months of meetings and feedback, a final decision on new catchment areas for the three Lake Country elementary schools will go to the Central Okanagan School Board in the next two months.. The Central Okanagan School District held a final public consultation Thursday night in Lake Country where two different options for the new catchment areas were presented to the public.. Both options are very similar and would re-direct students living in the SouthWest quadrant of Lake Country (south of Seaton Road and west of the highway) that are currently in the Davidson Road catchment to Peter Greer Elementary. Students in the Woodsdale Flats area would be sent to Oyama Traditional School as opposed to their current catchment of Peter Greer.. The only difference in the two options is a development known as Sage Glen, where just 14 students currently reside. Those students, and any new students ...

This is the first study to report the prevalence of dementia and differential diagnoses in a community based catchment area study of younger people with dementia. The prevalence of dementia in people between the ages of 30 and 64 years was 54 per 100 000 with the prevalence approximately doubling for each five year age band. Based on the prevalence figures derived from this study we estimate that there are 18 319 (15 296-21 758) people under the age of 65 years with dementia in the UK.. The main strength of the study is the combination of a large catchment area and the use of multiple and varied means of case identification, essentially attempting to leave no stone unturned. The very varied sources of case identification confirm the benefits of this methodology. The main weakness of the study is that despite using a catchment area with a population of more than 500 000 people, the rarity of the condition ...
In the current health care environment, it is unacceptable for patient education programs to merely provide information. Rather, educational programs must concentrate on behavior change and on supporting patients to become more confident and motivated in participating in managing their health. Persons with type 2 diabetes attending a Diabetes Education Centre will be assigned to either a group that receives regular professionally-led diabetes patient education (control group) or to to a group that receives regular professionally-led diabetes patient education augmented by lay-led self-management education i.e., the Stanford six-session Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (experimental group). Data will be collected at two points in time (0 and 6 months). Outcome measures will show if participants who receive self-management training in addition to regular patient education are able to:manage their diabetes more effectively; engage in the specific behaviors that keep the ...

Background: Online learning has recently garnered increased attention as technology use in the classroom grows. However, most of the published approaches regarding this topic in postgraduate education centers on clinical environments. Models of partnerships between applied public health agencies and academic centers to produce mutually beneficial online learning opportunities for graduate-level public health courses have not been explored in the literature.Methods: East Tennessee State University (ETSU) and the Tennessee Department of Health (TDH) partnered to build three online, asynchronous epidemiology modules for an interdisciplinary audience of graduate students. The goal of the modules were to 1) introduce students to a public health issue, 2) provide students with hands-on learning about data and information available through TDH, and 3) allow students to connect theory to practice by having them create a product for use by TDH. ...

Responding to growing interest in the use of woody biomass as a clean, carbon-neutral and renewable energy source, SFR last year produced a policy report for the Washington State Legislature, Wood to Energy in Washington: Imperatives, opportunities and obstacles to progress. The report indentified three imperatives driving energy policy decisions: climate change mitigation, energy independence and sustainability. Now Washingtons resource-dependent communities are eying woody biomass as a means to improve the economics of managing forestlands and to help revive the areas forest products industry. Green energy production from woody biomass-is it the answer? Well, maybe, says John Calhoun, Director of the Olympic Natural Resources Center (ONRC) in Forks, Wash., one of SFRs interdisciplinary research and education centers. ONRC is currently devoting a considerable portion of its research resources to help answer this question. In January 2009, ONRC was asked by the Clallam County Economic ...

Identifying Soybean Genotypes with High Charcoal Rot Resistance. Experimental field plots. Field plots were established from 2006 to 2008 at the West Tennessee Research and Education Center at University of Tennessee in Jackson, TN. The soil was a Dexter fine-silty loam (mixed, active, thermicultic hapludalfs). Soybean genotypes in MG III through V including six plant introductions were selected based on their commercial use, high yield in state variety trials, and performance in breeding trials. A total of 149 soybean genotypes consisting of 27 MG III, 29 Early MG IV, 34 Late MG IV, and 59 MG V were evaluated for reaction to M. phaseolina infection. Seeds were treated with 0.8 ml/kg of mefenoxam + fludioxinal + molybeenum (Apron Maxx + Moly, Syngenta, Greensboro, NC) prior to planting. The experiments were conducted in the same area each year and genotypes were planted in four 6.1-m rows spaced 0.7 m using an Almaco 4-row cone planter (model #AJ4RP2, Almaco, Nevada, IA). Within each MG the ...
There was a significant but comparatively weaker correlation between length of stay and timing of referral in older patients compared with the younger group, which was a disappointing finding as this is a large and important target group for CLP services. This result is in contrast to the study of the rapid assessment, interface and discharge integrated model (RAID), which found that most of the services cost savings were achieved through reduced lengths of stay and fewer readmissions in the geriatric wards.2 The authors suggested these outcomes were related to educating general hospital staff about mental health problems and efforts to link patients to appropriate pathways for community care.2 The difference in strength of correlation of the association found in the study presented here may be because of the inherent differences between the two age groups, including the need for an interpreter. The study hospital serves an ethnically diverse population with 48.1% of the hospitals ...
Significant efforts have been undertaken in medicine to identify hospital and primary care service areas (eg, the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care) using patient origin information. Similar research in dentistry is nonexistent. The goal of this dissertation was to develop and refine methods of defining dentist service areas (DSAs) using dental insurance claims. These service areas were then used as spatial units of analysis in studies that examined relationships between utilization of oral health services, dentist workforce supply, and service area characteristics. Enrollment and claims data were obtained from the Iowa Medicaid program for children and adolescents ages 3-18 years during calendar years 2008 through 2010. The first study described rates of treatment by orthodontists in children ages 6-18 years. Orthodontic DSAs were identified by small area analysis in order to examine regional ...
A catchment area (CA) is the geographic area and population from which a cancer center draws patients. Defining a CA allows a cancer center to describe its primary patient population and assess how well it meets the needs of cancer patients within the CA. A CA definition is required for cancer centers applying for National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center status. In this research, we constructed both diagnosis and diagnosis/treatment CAs for the Massey Cancer Center (MCC) at Virginia Commonwealth University. We constructed diagnosis CAs for all cancers based on Virginia state cancer registry data and Bayesian hierarchical logistic regression models. We constructed a diagnosis/treatment CA using billing data from MCC and a Bayesian hierarchical Poisson regression model. To define CAs, we used exceedance probabilities for county random effects to assess unusual spatial clustering of patients diagnosed or treated at MCC after adjusting for ...
Believe it or not, for every inch of rain that falls on a catchment area of 1,000 square feet, you can expect to collect approximately 600 gallons of rainwater. Ten inches of rain falling on a 1,000 square foot catchment area will generate about 6,000 gallons of rainwater! Thats right, 6,000 gallons! More than you were expecting? Your roof catchment area is equal to the total square feet of your house plus the extension of your eaves. You dont need to consider the angle of your roof, like you would if you were buying roofing material, because rain falls evenly on every part of the roof.. To calculate the square feet of the catchment area around your house, measure the area of the outside walls and then include the overhang of any eaves. For example, you have an oblong house with outside dimensions of 36 feet by 46 feet. You have calculated the overhang of ...
Silica-gel column chromatography (clean-up). The chromatographic column (20 cm × 8 mm I.D.) was packed with 5.0 g of activated silica gel, which was made into a slurry with 1.5% (v/m) petroleum ether and then stirred well before use. About 1 mℓ of anhydrous sodium sulphate was placed at the top of the column to absorb any water in the sample or the solvent. The column was pre-eluted with 15 mℓ of petroleum ether and before exposure to sodium sulphate. The reduced 5 mℓ extract resulting from the extraction processes was placed in the column and allowed to sink below the sodium sulphate layer. APEs extracts were eluted with 2 × 10 mℓ portions of the extracting solvents. The eluant was collected, bubbled with nitrogen gas to dryness and reconstituted with 2 mℓ of extracting solvent. Then 1.0 µℓ was injected into the GC.. Sampling protocol. Description of the study area. The study area for this research work was the Jukskei River catchment area, ...

Permafrost thaw in peatlands has the potential to alter catchment export of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and thus influence downstream aquatic C cycling. Subarctic peatlands are often mosaics of different peatland types, where permafrost conditions regulate the hydrological setting of each type. We show that hydrological setting is key to observed differences in magnitude, timing, and chemical composition of DOC export between permafrost and nonpermafrost peatland types, and that these differences influence the export of DOC of larger catchments even when peatlands are minor catchment components. In many aspects, DOC export from a studied peatland permafrost plateau was similar to that of a forested upland catchment. Similarities included low annual export (2-3 g C m−2) dominated by the snow melt period ( 70%), and how substantial DOC export following storms required wet antecedent conditions. Conversely, nonpermafrost fens had higher DOC ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Analytical model of flow maldistribution in polymer electrolyte fuel cell channels. AU - Basu, Suman. AU - Wang, Chao Yang. AU - Chen, Ken S.. PY - 2010/12/1. Y1 - 2010/12/1. N2 - Gas-liquid, two-phase flow through channels of a polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) is of great interest as reactant oxygen is supplied and liquid product water is removed via these PEFC channels. Gas diffusion layer (GDL) intrusion in the channels, which is inherent to the process of PEFC cell and stack assembling, increases the local flow resistance in the intruded channels and consequently lowers their flowrates. This flow maldistribution renders the intruded channels more susceptible to liquid water accumulation or flooding. A one-dimensional analytical model is developed in this work to elucidate the two-phase flow maldistribution in PEFC channels resulting from GDL intrusion. Relative humidity (RH) and the stoichiometric flow ratio of inlet gases are found to be the two key parameters ...

The aim of this study is to identify ways to build research capacity within primary health. A consultation was undertaken in late 2004 using a combination of a one-page survey and a guided meeting format, in a primary health setting in rural NSW. Most (81.3%) of the 134 individuals consulted were part of an Area Health Service, with 12.7% from non-government settings. Most (80.6%) were clinicians, with a third (31.5%) nurses, 8.3% in medicine, and the remainder from a range of allied health professions. Eleven organisations were represented. The main outcome measures were identification of support needs, processes to enhance research engagement, and barriers and enablers to clinicians research involvement. The results showed that popular delivery modes for research training and support were courses and "one-to- one" advice. Writing topics were generally more popular than others. Common barriers were time and technology ...
This study examined the relationship between racial/ethnic residential segregation and access to health care in rural areas. Data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey were merged with the American Community Survey and the Area Health Resources Files. Segregation was operationalized using the isolation index separately for African Americans and Hispanics. Multi-level logistic regression with random intercepts estimated four outcomes. In rural areas, segregation contributed to worse access to a usual source of health care but higher reports of health care needs being met among African Americans (Adjusted Odds Ratio [AOR]: 1.42, CI: 0.96-2.10) and Hispanics (AOR: 1.25, CI: 1.05-1.49). By broadening the spatial scale of segregation beyond urban areas, findings showed the complex interaction between social and spatial factors in rural areas ...

Background: Our aim was to determine if changes in ubiquitin are correlated with proteins known to be affected directly or indirectly by the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. For example, the intermediary kinase of the NFκβ pathway IKK is tagged directly by ubiquitin, aiding its degradation within the large, self-compartmentalised protease called the 26S proteasome. IKK degradation allows the release of NFκβ (an indirect consequence of ubiquitination) that then translocates into the nucleus to initiate the transcription of survival factors such as cIAP2, BCL-XL, BFL1, FLIP, IL-8, and TNF-α. Methods: Lyophilised baboon endometrial tissues from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and from women undergoing laparoscopy from the Sydney South West Area of Health Service (SSWAHS) were processed for RNA extraction and analysis. Immunohistochemical studies were also conducted on formalin fixed baboon and human endometrial tissues from UIC and from the Sydney West ...
