Elevated asthma morbidity in Puerto Rican children: a review of possible risk and prognostic factors. (1/5055)

Latino children represent a significant proportion of all US children, and asthma is the most common chronic illness affecting them. Previous research has revealed surprising differences in health among Latino children with asthma of varying countries of family origin. For instance, Puerto Rican children have a higher prevalence of asthma than Mexican American or Cuban American children. In addition, there are important differences in family structure and socioeconomic status among these Latino populations: Cuban Americans have higher levels of education and family income than Mexican-Americans and Puerto Ricans; mainland Puerto Rican children have the highest proportion of households led by a single mother. Our review of past research documents differences in asthma outcomes among Latino children and identifies the possible genetic, environmental, and health care factors associated with these differences. Based on this review, we propose research studies designed to differentiate between mutable and immutable risk and prognostic factors. We also propose that the sociocultural milieus of Latino subgroups of different ethnic and geographic origin are associated with varying patterns of risk factors that in turn lead to different morbidity patterns. Our analysis provides a blue-print for future research, policy development, and the evaluation of multifactorial interventions involving the collaboration of multiple social sectors, such as health care, public health, education, and public and private agencies.  (+info)

Latino children's health and the family-community health promotion model. (2/5055)

A majority of Latino children in the US live in poverty. However, unlike other poor children, Latino children do not seem to have a consistent association between poverty and poor health. Instead, many poor Latino children have unexpectedly good health outcomes. This has been labeled an epidemiologic paradox. This paper proposes a new model of health, the family-community health promotion model, to account for this paradox. The family-community health promotion model emphasizes the family-community milieu of the child, in contrast to traditional models of health. In addition, the family-community model expands the outcome measures from physical health to functional health status, and underscores the contribution of cultural factors to functional health outcomes. In this paper, we applied the family-community health promotion model to four health outcomes: low birthweight, infant mortality, chronic and acute illness, and perceived health status. The implications of this model for research and policy are discussed.  (+info)

Calcium absorption and kinetics are similar in 7- and 8-year-old Mexican-American and Caucasian girls despite hormonal differences. (3/5055)

To assess the possibility of ethnic differences in mineral metabolism in prepubertal children, we compared measures of calcium metabolism in 7- and 8-y-old Mexican-American (MA) and non-Hispanic Caucasian (CAU) girls (n = 38) living in southeastern Texas. We found similar fractional calcium absorption, urinary calcium excretion, calcium kinetic values and total-body bone mineral content in the MA and CAU girls. In contrast, parathyroid hormone (PTH) concentrations were greater in MA girls (4.01 +/- 0.47 vs. 1. 96 +/- 0.50 pmol/L, P = 0.005) than in CAU girls. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations were lower in MA girls (68.9 +/- 7.7 vs. 109.4 +/- 8.4 nmol/L, P = 0.001) than in CAU girls, but 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D concentrations did not differ between groups. Seasonal variability was seen for 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations in girls of both ethnic groups, but values in all of the girls were >30 nmol/L (12 ng/mL). We conclude the following: 1) greater PTH levels in MA girls than CAU girls are present without evidence of vitamin D deficiency; and 2) differences in 25-hydroxyvitamin D and PTH concentrations between MA and CAU girls do not have a large effect on calcium absorption, excretion or bone calcium kinetics. These data do not provide evidence for adjusting dietary recommendations for mineral or vitamin D intake by MA girls.  (+info)

Influence of maternal ethnicity on infant mortality in Chicago, 1989-1996. (4/5055)

This study compared infant mortality rates between large ethnic groups in Chicago from 1989-1996. Infant mortality information about ethnic groups was compared using data from annual reports published by the Epidemiology Program, Department of Public Health, City of Chicago and vital statistics documents in Illinois, which include information on ethnicity. Chi-squared analysis was used to evaluate the differences between the proportions. A P value of < .05 was considered significant. During the study period, there were 461,974 births and 6407 infant deaths in Chicago. African Americans contributed 212,924 (46.1%) births and 4387 (68.5%) deaths; Hispanics 132,787 (28.7%) births and 1166 (18.2%) deaths; and whites 99,532 (21.6%) births and 780 (12.2%) infant deaths. Compared with the other groups. African Americans suffered a twofold increased mortality (P < .00001) for five of the six most common causes of infant mortality. Deaths from congenital malformations, although significant, were not excessively increased among African Americans (P = .014). Hispanics demonstrated a higher mortality rate than whites (P = .01), especially for postnatal mortality and respiratory distress syndrome. These data confirm excessive infant mortality among African Americans. Further studies are needed to evaluate the apparent low mortality among some Hispanics compared with the other groups studied.  (+info)

Linkage of type 2 diabetes mellitus and of age at onset to a genetic location on chromosome 10q in Mexican Americans. (5/5055)

Since little is known about chromosomal locations harboring type 2 diabetes-susceptibility genes, we conducted a genomewide scan for such genes in a Mexican American population. We used data from 27 low-income extended Mexican American pedigrees consisting of 440 individuals for whom genotypic data are available for 379 markers. We used a variance-components technique to conduct multipoint linkage analyses for two phenotypes: type 2 diabetes (a discrete trait) and age at onset of diabetes (a truncated quantitative trait). For the multipoint analyses, a subset of 295 markers was selected on the basis of optimal spacing and informativeness. We found significant evidence that a susceptibility locus near the marker D10S587 on chromosome 10q influences age at onset of diabetes (LOD score 3.75) and is also linked with type 2 diabetes itself (LOD score 2.88). This susceptibility locus explains 63.8%+/-9.9% (P=. 000016) of the total phenotypic variation in age at onset of diabetes and 65.7%+/-10.9% (P=.000135) of the total variation in liability to type 2 diabetes. Weaker evidence was found for linkage of diabetes and of age at onset to regions on chromosomes 3p, 4q, and 9p. In conclusion, our strongest evidence for linkage to both age at onset of diabetes and type 2 diabetes itself in the Mexican American population was for a region on chromosome 10q.  (+info)

Marijuana use among minority youths living in public housing developments. (6/5055)

Youths residing in public housing developments appear to be at markedly heightened risk for drug use because of their constant exposure to violence, poverty, and drug-related activity. The purpose of this study was to develop and test a model of marijuana etiology with adolescents (N = 624) residing in public housing. African-American and Hispanic seventh graders completed questionnaires about their marijuana use, social influences to smoke marijuana, and sociodemographic and psychosocial characteristics. Results indicated that social influences, such as friends' marijuana use and perceived ease of availability of marijuana, significantly predicted both occasional and future use of marijuana. Individual characteristics such as antimarijuana attitudes and drug refusal skills also predicted marijuana use. The findings imply that effective prevention approaches that target urban youths residing in public housing developments should provide them with an awareness of social influences to use marijuana, correct misperceptions about the prevalence of marijuana smoking, and train adolescents in relevant psychosocial skills.  (+info)

Racial and ethnic differences in glycemic control of adults with type 2 diabetes. (7/5055)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate glycemic control in a representative sample of U.S. adults with type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: The Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey included national samples of non-Hispanic whites, non-Hispanic blacks, and Mexican Americans aged > or = 20 years. Information on medical history and treatment of diabetes was obtained to determine those who had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes by a physician before the survey (n = 1,480). Fasting plasma glucose and HbA1c were measured, and the frequencies of sociodemographic and clinical variables related to glycemic control were determined. RESULTS: A higher proportion of non-Hispanic blacks were treated with insulin and a higher proportion of Mexican Americans were treated with oral agents compared with non-Hispanic whites, but the majority of adults in each racial or ethnic group (71-83%) used pharmacologic treatment for diabetes. Use of multiple daily insulin injections was more common in whites. Blood glucose self-monitoring was less common in Mexican Americans, but most patients had never self-monitored. HbA1c values in the nondiabetic range were found in 26% of non-Hispanic whites, 17% of non-Hispanic blacks, and 20% of Mexican Americans. Poor glycemic control (HbA1c > 8%) was more common in non-Hispanic black women (50%) and Mexican-American men (45%) compared with the other groups (35-38%), but HbA1c for both sexes and for all racial and ethnic groups was substantially higher than normal levels. Those with HbA1c > 8% included 52% of insulin-treated patients and 42% of those taking oral agents. There was no relationship of glycemic control to socioeconomic status or access to medical care in any racial or ethnic group. CONCLUSIONS: These data indicate that many patients with type 2 diabetes in the U.S. have poor glycemic control, placing them at high risk of diabetic complications. Non-Hispanic black women, Mexican-American men, and patients treated with insulin and oral agents were disproportionately represented among those in poor glycemic control. Clinical, public health, and research efforts should focus on more effective methods to control blood glucose in patients with diabetes.  (+info)

Differential mortality in New York City (1988-1992). Part Two: excess mortality in the south Bronx. (8/5055)

To display the extent of variations in mortality according to geographic regions in New York City, we have compared mortality in New York City as a whole with that of the South Bronx. Mortality records for 1988 to 1992 and 1990 US census data for New York City were linked. The 471,000 residents of the South Bronx were younger, less educated, and more likely to lack health insurance than other New Yorkers. Using age- and gender-stratified populations and mortality in New York City as standards, age-adjusted death rates and excess mortality in the South Bronx were determined. All-cause mortality in the South Bronx was 26% higher than the city as a whole. Mortality for AIDS, injury and poisoning, drug and alcohol abuse, and cardiovascular diseases were 50% to 100% higher in the South Bronx than in New York City; years of potential life lost before age 65 in the South Bronx were 41.6% and 44.2% higher for men and women, respectively, than in New York City; AIDS accounted for the largest single share of excess premature deaths (21.8%). In summary, inequalities in health status, reflected by higher mortality rates in the South Bronx, are consistent with, and perhaps caused by, lower socioeconomic status and deficient medical care among residents of this inner-city community.  (+info)

Aim. This study evaluated the influence of somatostatin receptor 2 (SSTR2) polymorphisms on measures of glucose homeostasis in the Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Family Study (IRAS-FS). SSTR2 is a G protein-coupled receptor which, in response to somatostatin, mediates inhibition of insulin, glucagon and growth hormone release, and thus may affect glucose homeostasis.. Methods. Ten SNPs spanning the gene were chosen using a SNP density selection algorithm and genotyped on 1425 Hispanic-American individuals from 90 families in the IRAS-FS. These families comprised two samples (Set 1 and Set 2) which were analyzed individually and as a combined set. Single SNP tests of association were performed for four glucose homeostasis measures: insulin sensitivity (SI), acute insulin response (AIR), disposition index (DI) and fasting glucose (GFAST) using generalized estimating equations (GEE1).. Results. The SSTR2 locus was encompassed by a single LD block (D=0.91-1.00, r2=0.09-0.97) which contained ...
The Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS-SOL) is the largest study to date to examine the prevalence of heart disease risk factors-high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, and smoking-within a diverse Hispanic/Latino population. Findings from HCHS-SOL also showed that the prevalence of risk factors varies across and within Hispanic/Latino populations. For example, people of Puerto Rican background experienced higher rates of heart disease risk factors compared to other Hispanic/Latino groups.. Participants who were more acculturated (born in the United States or lived in the United States for 10 years or longer or preferred using English rather than Spanish) were significantly more likely to have three or more risk factors as well as self-reported heart disease or stroke. And those with lower education or with annual incomes less than $20,000 were more likely to have multiple heart disease risk factors than those with higher education and incomes.. Heart ...

One of the biggest obstacles for Latino patients during a neuropsychological assessment is that often it can be the first test theyve taken - in their life.. In Latino communities, many people are not familiar with testing. Its done more often now in Latino American countries - but older Latino patients with low education may have never taken a test, and those with higher education may have just taken one test during their entire academic career - at the end of high school, says Quiroz. Test taking for the first time ever - it is definitely anxiety provoking. Also, the cultural differences can impact the way that individuals from different cultures approach a testing situation.. Another disadvantage for the Latino community is that some neuropsychology assessments require reading and writing skills that many Latino patients from a low socio-economic status with no formal education do not have.. Patients from different cultures can also present with different cultural beliefs and awareness ...

N2 - The purpose of this study was to identify factors associated with sexual activity in a national representative sample of Hispanic female adolescents. The subjects included all (n = 202) 15- to 19-year-old Hispanic female adolescents from the 1982 National Survey of Family Growth subdivided into Mexican-American (n = 119), Puerto Rican (n = 34), Central/South American (n = 23), Cuban (n = 9), and other Hispanic (n = 17) background groups. A total of 42% of the young women were sexually active. More Cubans (69.0%) and Central/South Americans (55.6%) reported sexual activity than the other groups, but the differences were not statistically significant. With multiple regression analysis, a significant amount of variation (total R2 = 0.367, P ≤ .001) in sexual acitivity was explained by the following variables: ...
The Spanish language and culture are common bonds for many Hispanic Americans, regardless of whether they trace their ancestry to Africa, Asia, Europe, or the Americas. The immigrant experience is another common bond. Nevertheless, Hispanic Americans are very heterogeneous in the circumstances of their migration and in other characteristics. To understand their mental health needs, it is important to examine both the shared and unique experiences of different groups of Hispanic Americans.

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

Rates of depression and anxiety vary widely among different segments of the U.S. Hispanic and Latino population, with the highest prevalence of depressive symptoms in Puerto Ricans, according to a new report from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL). The researchers findings also suggest that depression and anxiety may be undertreated among Hispanics and Latinos, particularly if they are uninsured. The study was published online in Annals of Epidemiology.
Familias Unidas aims to prevent drug use and unprotected sexual behavior by increasing family functioning. A sample of 240 Hispanic adolescent first offenders or those at risk of becoming first offenders (age range 12 to 17) and 240 primary caregivers will be randomized to one of two conditions: Familias Unidas or Treatment as Usual. The investigators do not expect any risks to participants for participating in this study; however, participants may feel embarrassed by some of the content or feel fatigued as a result of completing the assessments. Also, depending on which group participants are assigned to, they may be less likely to use drugs and practice unsafe sexual behaviors and more likely to function better as families.. The proposed study will be guided by four aims. AIM 1 is to evaluate the efficacy of Familias Unidas, relative to Treatment as Usual in preventing illicit drug use in a sample of Hispanic youth first offenders or those at high risk of committing a first offense; AIM 2 is ...

ATLANTA, May 5, 2015 - The first national study on Hispanic health risks and leading causes of death in the United States by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that similar to non-Hispanic whites (whites), the two leading causes of death in Hispanics are heart disease and cancer. Fewer Hispanics than whites die from the 10 leading causes of death, but Hispanics had higher death rates than whites from diabetes and chronic liver disease and cirrhosis. They have similar death rates from kidney diseases, according to the new Vital Signs report.. Health risk can vary by Hispanic subgroup. For example, nearly 66 percent more Puerto Ricans smoke than Mexicans. Health risk also varies partly by whether Hispanics were born in the U.S. or in another country. Hispanics are almost three times as likely to be uninsured as whites. Hispanics in the U.S. are on average nearly 15 years younger than whites, so taking steps now to prevent disease could mean longer, healthier lives for ...
Each year ALL is found in about 3,000 U.S. children, making it the most common childhood cancer. The incidence varies by self-declared race and ethnicity with rates for Hispanic individuals 50 percent higher than for non-Hispanic white individuals. For this study, researchers used genetic variations rather than individual self-report to define ancestry. White children were defined as having greater than 95 percent European ancestry and Hispanics children as having greater than 10 percent Native American ancestry.. Although the work of St. Jude researchers and others is helping to close the survival gap, Hispanic children are still less likely than children from other racial or ethnic backgrounds to be alive five years after diagnosis.. This study builds on the earlier St. Jude research that linked different versions of the ARID5B gene to ALL risk. St. Jude and COG investigators partnered to see if variations in the ARID5B gene help to explain differences in either the incidence or the outcome of ...
Author(s): Guerrero, Lourdes R; Dudovitz, Rebecca; Chung, Paul J; Dosanjh, Kulwant K; Wong, Mitchell D | Abstract: Grit, defined as working strenuously toward challenges, maintaining effort and interest over years despite failure, adversity, and plateaus in progress, is strongly associated with academic achievement and life success and may also be associated with health outcomes and behaviors. We examined predictors of grit, and the association between grit and health behaviors among at-risk Latino adolescents.We analyzed baseline survey data collected in 2013-2014 from a sample of 1270 9th graders in low-income neighborhoods of Los Angeles. We examined factors associated with grit and whether grit is associated with substance use and delinquent behaviors, controlling for adolescent and parent sociodemographic factors.In a sample of mostly Latino adolescents (89.5%), compared to those with low grit, those with high grit had significantly lower odds of alcohol use in the last 30 days (odds ratio 0.30,
For Wisconsins rapidly growing Latino population, access to transportation, bilingual health care providers and fulltime work with benefits remain major barriers to addressing health disparities.
Anew USC study of a large and diverse group of Medicaid enrollees finds Latino patients had starkly higher odds of a positive COVID-19 test-as well as higher odds of hospitalization and death-than white patients.. The study of racial and ethnic differences in COVID-19 testing and outcomes included data from more than 84,000 adults at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center who were enrolled in that countys Medicaid managed care plan.. The research appears in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.. One hypothesis for worse COVID-19 outcomes among low-income people has been that they are more likely to have other preexisting health problems. After controlling for those risks, as well as demographic and neighborhood factors, Latinos still fared worse than other groups. That was in spite of the fact that the Latino patients were disproportionately younger. In general, Latinos in the U.S. are healthier than whites-a phenomenon known as the Latino paradox.. Even among a population of Medicaid ...

THE NEWS: Hispanic consumers buying power to grow 50% by 2015. For the complete story, click here.). According to the Census Bureau, the Hispanic population grew from 35.3 million in 2000 to 50.5 million in 2010, a 43% increase, while the non-Hispanic white population is expected to be just more than half of the population in the next 30 years. But many suppliers and retailers arent waiting to adapt their marketing strategies until then - theyre doing it now.. On Tuesday, Coors announced a series of new Web and smartphone media designed to reach out to Hispanic consumers as part of its sponsorship of Mexicos Primera soccer division.

The CDC reports that over 76,000 youth are living with HIV and 60 percent dont even realize it.. Medical experts believe the reason why HIV rates are as high as they are among Latino/a youth have to do with a variety of reasons unique to Latinos: cultural stigma, traditional attitudes of machismo, which stresses virility for Hispanics/Latino men, and marianismo, which demands purity from Latina women; immigration status, fear of discrimination - and perhaps the biggest reason, lack of education.. Though some school districts across the country resist teaching medically accurate sexual education and most prefer to advocate for an abstinence-only approach, the numbers show that Latino youth continue to engage in sex - on their own terms.. However, they do want to know how to protect themselves. The CDC reports that 50 percent of Millennials want more information about HIV. One method to educate youth about HIV/AIDS is via the annual bilingual Lets Stop HIV Together/Actúa contra el SIDA ...
In a multiethnic sample of relatively young men and women with stage I obesity and without diabetes, we found striking ethnic differences in the levels of pancreatic TGs and in the relationship between pancreatic TGs and β-cell dysfunction. Black subjects have very low levels of pancreatic TGs and robust compensatory insulin secretion; small increments in pancreatic TGs are accompanied by large linear increases in a compensatory insulin secretion. White subjects have much higher pancreatic TG levels and a flatter positive relationship between pancreatic TGs and compensatory insulin secretion. Hispanic subjects have levels of pancreatic TGs similar to those of whites but the relationship between pancreatic TGs and insulin secretion is paradoxically negative.. The lower level of pancreatic TGs in black compared with Hispanic adults adds to our previous work, showing lower levels of hepatic TGs in black than Hispanic individuals (8), which also was confirmed in this study. Importantly, hepatic TGs ...

LVM carries important and powerful prognostic information demonstrated mainly in non-Hispanic whites and non-Hispanic blacks. Hispanics currently represent the largest single minority ethnic group in the United States, however little prospective prognostic information has been available regarding LVM in Hispanics. We show for the first time that LVM has a significant prognostic value for cardiovascular events among Hispanics. In this population-based sample free of known stroke or myocardial infarction at baseline, we found that the HR for combined cardiovascular events increased by 34% for every 15.0 gm/ht2.7 increase in LVM independent of age, systolic blood pressure, diabetes, and smoking. The HRs for LVM and LVH in the Hispanic population are comparable in magnitude to the risk derived from previous community cohorts of other races. Furthermore, the prevalence of LVH in the Hispanic community has not been previously described. We document an LVH prevalence of 35.7% among Hispanics, which is ...

By David Morse - New America Dimensions Part Three: Hispanic Americans When Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump descended the elevator, swarmed by media, to announce his candidacy in June 2015, his first shot across the bow - and his campaign was nothing if not pugilistic - was aimed at Mexicans. That day, and nearly every day after, he made immigration the centerpiece of his campaign. But the term Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) did not escape from his lips that June day. Nor did he reach out to U.S. Latinos, as the Republican Party he was running in, claimed to believe in. Instead, he said this: When Mexico sends its people, theyre not sending their best. Theyre not sending you. Theyre not sending you. Theyre sending people that have lots of problems, and theyre bringing those problems with us. Theyre bringing drugs. Theyre bringing crime. Theyre rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. Assuring his audience that his comments were not exclusive to Mexicans, he ...

Health risk can vary by Hispanic subgroup. For example, nearly 66% more Puerto Ricans smoke than Mexicans. Health risk also varies partly by whether Hispanics were born in the United States or in another country. Hispanics are almost three times as likely to be uninsured as whites. Hispanics in the United States are on average nearly 15 years younger than whites, so taking steps now to prevent disease could mean longer, healthier lives for Hispanics. Four out of 10 Hispanics die of heart disease or cancer. By not smoking and staying physically active, such as walking briskly for 30 minutes a day, Hispanics can reduce their risk for these chronic diseases and others such as diabetes, says CDC Director Tom Frieden, MD, MPH. Health professionals can help Hispanics protect their health by learning about their specific risk factors and addressing barriers to care. This Vital Signs report recommends that doctors, nurses, and other health professionals • work with interpreters to eliminate ...

The number of Americans diagnosed with diabetes is projected to double over the next fifty years (qtd. in Geiss and Cowie 25). The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 90-95% of all diabetes cases are type 2. Ethnic populations, particularly Hispanic Americans, are disproportionately affected by diabetes. Numerous clinical trials have proven that the onset of type 2 diabetes can be prevented through moderate exercise and a balanced diet (qtd. in Dabelea et al. 39). Culturally relevant prevention strategies can improve the effectiveness of type 2 diabetes prevention campaigns attempting to reach Hispanic Americans. ❧ In 2010, 87% of English-speaking Hispanic Americans (Smith), 78% of bilingual Hispanic Americans and 68% of Spanish dominant Hispanic Americans reported having a cell phone (Livingston).

Shonnie Pochardt, whose life and death is highlighted in Wheelwrights book, discovered a lump in her breast years before she was diagnosed. But, as her family told The Denver Post in 2003, her doctor told her she was too young to have breast cancer. Since the genetic mutation has been documented, the awareness among physicians has grown, said Angela Bedard, a genetic counselor and head of the oncology department at the San Luis Valley Regional Medical Center in Alamosa.. The knowledge is growing and women at younger ages are being sent for screening, Bedard said.. Now, it is often the women themselves who arent acknowledging the risks.. We still see women of the San Luis Valley being diagnosed at later stages, in their disease, Bedard said. These women are just not doing the screening at rates that are needed. All women need mamograms and cancer screening, but even among those whose family history increases their risk, there is resistance, she said.. Quirk of heritage. Cost is a factor. ...

Introduction: Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are major causes of mortality among U.S. Hispanic/Latino farmworkers. Since Hispanics/Latinos, in general, are twice as likely as non-Hispanic whites to have elevated alanine aminotransferase (ALT), a biomarker of suspected nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, it is vital to understand the CVD risk factor-ALT relationship in Hispanic/Latino farmworkers. This study investigated the elevated ALT status in Hispanic/Latino farmworkers and the relationships between ALT and CVD risk markers.Methods: In 210 Hispanic/Latino farmworkers (48% female; aged 35.2 ± 9.2 years), fasting blood samples were measured for serum ALT, and elevated ALT was defined by | 43 U/L. CVD risk markers were measured with standard methods and defined according to the definitions of metabolic syndrome.Results: The overall prevalence for elevated ALT was 12.4%. Significant linear upward trends across tertiles of serum ALT were observed for body mass index, waist circumference, fasting glucose

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

NORTH CAROLINA PRAMS FACT SHEET October 2010 North Carolina Latina Maternal Health 2004- 2007 N. C. Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System ( PRAMS) North Carolina has a sizable Latino population. Since 1990, the size of the Latino population has more than quadrupled in the state. According to 2007 estimates, North Carolinas resident Latino population was 637,379; representing approximately 7 percent of the states population. Over half ( 52%) of the Latino population falls in the childbearing ages of 15 to 44, compared with only 41 percent of the non- Latino residents of the state. 1 Births to Latina mothers have also risen substantially during this time period. In 1990, Latinos accounted for less than 2 percent ( 1.68%) of all resident births. By 2007, Latinos comprised approximately 17 percent of all North Carolina resident births. The overall birth rate per 1,000 for Latina mothers ages 15- 44 in North Carolina in 2007 was 167.5, compared with a rate of 62.2 for non- Latina women. 2 ...
By Dr. Jose Castillo-Mancilla. Hispanic/Latinos are the fastest growing minority ethnic group in the United States, accounting for 17 percent of the current population. This is projected to increase to 31 percent by 2060. As we celebrate the National Latino AIDS Awareness Day, it is time to think about how HIV/AIDS affects the Hispanic/Latino community in the US and what can you do to stop it.. The CDC indicates that more than 95,000 U.S. Hispanic/Latinos have died of HIV/AIDS since the beginning of the epidemic, and that this disease continues to affect us disproportionately. About 20 percent of the new HIV infections occur in individuals of Hispanic/Latino ethnicity, both men and women, and the lifetime likelihood of being diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in is higher for Hispanic/Latinos compared to whites. This also translates into a much more advanced disease stage once the diagnosis is made, which is fueled by factors such as lack of healthcare access, health illiteracy, poverty, stigma and ...
Approach and Results-We studied 8367 Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos participants who were 45 to 74 years of age. Sleep symptoms were examined with the self-reported Sleep Health Questionnaire. SA was assessed using an in-home sleep study. Systolic blood pressure was measured in all extremities to compute the ankle-brachial index. PAD was defined as ankle-brachial index ,0.90 in either leg. Multivariable logistic regression was used to investigate the association between moderate-to-severe SA, defined as apnea-hypopnea index ≥15, and the presence of PAD. Analyses were adjusted for covariates. The prevalence of PAD was 4.7% (n=390). The mean apnea-hypopnea index was significantly higher among adults with PAD compared with those without (11.1 versus 8.6 events/h; P=0.046). After adjusting for covariates, moderate-to-severe SA was associated with a 70% increase in the odds of PAD (odds ratio, 1.7; 95% confidence interval, 1.1-2.5; P=0.0152). This association was not modified by ...
Blanca Peak is prominent in the Sierra Blanca at the southern end of the northernmost section of the mountains, which is known as the Sangre de Cristo Range. There are several passes, with elevations between 9,000 and 10,000 feet (2,700 and 3,000 m), giving access to the valley. North La Veta Pass, through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, is used by U.S. Highway 160 and by the San Luis and Rio Grande Railroad (formerly a branch of the Denver & Rio Grande Western) tracks. Other passes used historically were Medano, Mosca and Sangre de Cristo Passes. The Great Sand Dunes are a famous feature of the valley. They lie directly to the west of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The dunes can reach 750 feet (230 m) high. The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve is now in place to protect both the dunes and the numerous archeological sites found in the area. The natural valley aquifer is close to the surface in this part of the valley, and helps with maintenance of water levels in the San Luis Lakes, ...

Gene expression profiling of 207 uniformly treated children with high-risk B-progenitor acute lymphoblastic leukemia revealed 29 of 207 cases (14%) with markedly elevated expression of CRLF2 (cytokine receptor-like factor 2). Each of the 29 cases harbored a genomic rearrangement of CRLF2: 18 of 29 (62%) had a translocation of the immunoglobulin heavy chain gene [email protected] on 14q32 to CRLF2 in the pseudoautosomal region 1 of Xp22.3/Yp11.3, whereas 10 (34%) cases had a 320-kb interstitial deletion centromeric of CRLF2, resulting in a P2RY8-CRLF2 fusion. One case had both [email protected] and P2RY8-CRLF2, and another had a novel CRLF2 rearrangement. Only 2 of 29 cases were Down syndrome. CRLF2 rearrangements were significantly associated with activating mutations of JAK1 or JAK2, deletion or mutation of IKZF1, and Hispanic/Latino ethnicity (Fisher exact test, P < .001 for each). Within this cohort, patients with CRLF2 rearrangements had extremely poor treatment outcomes compared with those without CRLF2 ...

Abdominal obesity and insulin resistance (IR) place youth at higher risk for premature cardiovascular disease (CVD), but the underlying mechanisms are not clear. In adults, abdominal obesity and IR contribute to the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Whether similar mechanisms are operational in Latino adolescents is unknown. Therefore, we determined whether IR and abdominal adiposity are associated with higher oxLDL concentrations in Latino adolescents. Data from 123 Latino adolescents (16.3 ± 2.5 years; female = 74) were used for the present analysis. Participants were assessed for waist circumference, fasting serum oxLDL, and insulin sensitivity by the whole body insulin sensitivity index. In separate linear regression models adjusting for age and sex, both waist circumference and insulin sensitivity were significant predictors of oxLDL (β = 1.9; p = 0.002; R2 = 0.13, β = -1.7; p = 0.006; R2 = 0.11, respectively). When insulin sensitivity and waist circumference were included in the same

Purpose:This dissertation examined the roles of 1) motivation for healthy dietary habits, and 2) the meanings of eating behavior on dietary intake in Latino youth. Multiple objectives were addressed in the three studies that comprised this dissertation. Study 1 identified the affective meanings of dietary intake among minority children, developed factor items for the Meanings of Eating Index (MEI), validated the MEI, and explored whether the meanings identified were related to healthy (or unhealthy) dietary behavior in Latino youth. Study 2 examined the effects of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation for eating fruits and vegetables on dietary intake at baseline and on changes in dietary intake between baseline and follow-up in a randomized controlled trial in overweight Latina adolescents. Study 3 investigated whether motivation and the meanings of eating uniquely contributed to fruit and vegetable consumption in a predominantly Latino sample of elementary school children.; Methods:The ...
A short HIV-to-AIDS interval can indicate a delay in testing until late in the course of HIV disease, when symptoms are likely to have developed. It also may reflect inadequate care and treatment for Hispanics who may not be getting antiretroviral treatment at an earlier stage in their infection when medication could produce better health outcomes. Hispanics unaware of their infection are not able to take advantage of the therapies that can keep them healthy and extend their lives, nor do they have the knowledge to protect their sex or drug-use partners from becoming infected. HIV-infected persons who are unaware of their infection do not reduce risk behaviors and may unknowingly transmit the virus to others.26 The percentage of Hispanics with a short HIV-to-AIDS interval varied by place of birth and was larger among foreign-born Hispanics compared with US-born Hispanics. The barriers of language, lack of knowledge, and lack of health insurance have been obstacles to care and may be more ...

Lori Saldaña (photo, right), former State Legislator posted on Facebook, Heres the thing people need to understand about San Diego County: Latinos are 33% of the population and 60% of the COVID cases IDd so far.. Saldaña and other Latino advocates are raising serious concerns over the dangers posed by COVID-19 to Latino and Hispanic community members locally compared to the white majority. Why are Latinos locally suffering disproportionate rates of COVID-19 cases and mortalities?. One likely reason is that many Latinos are essential workers in jobs with frequent contact with the public, such as employees in grocery stores, hotels and medical facilities. Others have toiled in jobs that prior to recent orders, lacked social distancing and masks, such as farmworkers harvesting crops.. Estela de los Rios, a Latina community leader in El Cajon, believes reopening of restaurants and retail locally has occurred too soon.

In the United States, Hispanics or Latinos are disproportionately affected by infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In 2010, new diagnoses of HIV infection among Hispanics or Latinos occurred at an annual rate that was 2.8 times that of non-Hispanic whites (20.4 versus 7.3 per 100,000 persons) (1). To further assess HIV infection among Hispanics or Latinos in the United States, CDC analyzed the geographic distribution of new diagnoses in 2010 in 46 states and Puerto Rico and the characteristics of those diagnosed. The results of this analysis determined that a lower percentage of infections were attributed to male-to-male sexual contact in Puerto Rico than in the 46 states (36.1% versus 66.5%) and a higher percentage were attributed to heterosexual contact (40.7% versus 22.0%) or injection-drug use (IDU) (20.4% versus 8.6%). In the 46 states, the rate of new diagnoses of HIV infection among Hispanics or Latinos in the Northeast Census region in 2010 (55.0 per 100,000 persons) was ...

African American & Hispanic Unity Essay Contest As an African American and Mexican American woman I sometimes find myself in situations in which I must choose a side to take in debates among my friends, or in politics, or in social settings when the Black community and Hispanic community are pitted against each other. I am forced to choose a side, but why must this be so? Why must I be forced to choose a side in a dispute amongst two fellow minority groups? Would it not be best for the two minority groups to join together, to help each other against the majority? African Americans and Hispanics in the United States need to work together to address political, cultural, communication, and community issues because united both groups create a forceful power base, whilst divided they are weakened and produce more obstacles for each other. Both the African American and Hispanic communities need to realize that they are fighting for much of the same things. They both desire equality, representation ...
