Myths, models and mitigation of resistance to pesticides. (1/5122)

Resistance to pesticides in arthropod pests is a significant economic, ecological and public health problem. Although extensive research has been conducted on diverse aspects of pesticide resistance and we have learned a great deal during the past 50 years, to some degree the discussion about 'resistance management' has been based on 'myths'. One myth involves the belief that we can manage resistance. I will maintain that we can only attempt to mitigate resistance because resistance is a natural evolutionary response to environmental stresses. As such, resistance will remain an ongoing dilemma in pest management and we can only delay the onset of resistance to pesticides. 'Resistance management' models and tactics have been much discussed but have been tested and deployed in practical pest management programmes with only limited success. Yet the myth persists that better models will provide a 'solution' to the problem. The reality is that success in using mitigation models is limited because these models are applied to inappropriate situations in which the critical genetic, ecological, biological or logistic assumptions cannot be met. It is difficult to predict in advance which model is appropriate to a particular situation; if the model assumptions cannot be met, applying the model sometimes can increase the rate of resistance development rather than slow it down. Are there any solutions? I believe we already have one. Unfortunately, it is not a simple or easy one to deploy. It involves employing effective agronomic practices to develop and maintain a healthy crop, monitoring pest densities, evaluating economic injury levels so that pesticides are applied only when necessary, deploying and conserving biological control agents, using host-plant resistance, cultural controls of the pest, biorational pest controls, and genetic control methods. As a part of a truly multi-tactic strategy, it is crucial to evaluate the effect of pesticides on natural enemies in order to preserve them in the cropping system. Sometimes, pesticide-resistant natural enemies are effective components of this resistance mitigation programme. Another name for this resistance mitigation model is integrated pest management (IPM). This complex model was outlined in some detail nearly 40 years ago by V. M. Stern and colleagues. To deploy the IPM resistance mitigation model, we must admit that pest management and resistance mitigation programmes are not sustainable if based on a single-tactic strategy. Delaying resistance, whether to traditional pesticides or to transgenic plants containing toxin genes from Bacillus thuringiensis, will require that we develop multi-tactic pest management programmes that incorporate all appropriate pest management approaches. Because pesticides are limited resources, and their loss can result in significant social and economic costs, they should be reserved for situations where they are truly needed--as tools to subdue an unexpected pest population outbreak. Effective multi-tactic IPM programmes delay resistance (= mitigation) because the number and rates of pesticide applications will be reduced.  (+info)

The expiry date of man: a synthesis of evolutionary biology and public health. (2/5122)

In industrialised countries, mortality and morbidity are dominated by age related chronic degenerative diseases. The health and health care needs of future populations will be heavily determined by these conditions of old age. Two opposite scenarios of future morbidity exist: morbidity might decrease ("compress"), because life span is limited, and the incidence of disease is postponed. Or morbidity might increase ("expand"), because death is delayed more than disease incidence. Optimality theory in evolutionary biology explains senescence as a by product of an optimised life history. The theory clarifies how senescence is timed by the competing needs for reproduction and survival, and why this leads to a generalised deterioration of many functions at many levels. As death and disease are not independent, future morbidity will depend on duration and severity of the process of senescence, partly determined by health care, palliating the disease severity but increasing the disease duration by postponing death. Even if morbidity might be compressed, health care needs will surely expand.  (+info)

Dietary intake and practices in the Hong Kong Chinese population. (3/5122)

OBJECTIVES: To examine dietary intake and practices of the adult Hong Kong Chinese population to provide a basis for future public health recommendations with regard to prevention of certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and osteoporosis. PARTICIPANTS: Age and sex stratified random sample of the Hong Kong Chinese population aged 25 to 74 years (500 men, 510 women). METHOD: A food frequency method over a one week period was used for nutrient quantification, and a separate questionnaire was used for assessment of dietary habits. Information was obtained by interview. RESULTS: Men had higher intakes of energy and higher nutrient density of vitamin D, monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, but lower nutrient density of protein, many vitamins, calcium, iron, copper, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. There was an age related decrease in energy intake and other nutrients except for vitamin C, sodium, potassium, and percentage of total calorie from carbohydrate, which all increased with age. Approximately 50% of the population had a cholesterol intake of < or = 300 mg; 60% had a fat intake < or = 30% of total energy; and 85% had a percentage of energy from saturated fats < or = 10%; criteria considered desirable for cardiovascular health. Seventy eight per cent of the population had sodium intake values in the range shown to be associated with the age related rise in blood pressure with age. Mean calcium intake was lower than the FAO/WHO recommendations. The awareness of the value of wholemeal bread and polyunsaturated fat spreads was lower in this population compared with that in Australia. There was a marked difference in types of cooking oil compared with Singaporeans, the latter using more coconut/palm/mixed vegetable oils. CONCLUSION: Although the current intake pattern for cardiovascular health for fat, saturated fatty acid, and cholesterol fall within the recommended range for over 50% of the population, follow up surveys to monitor the pattern would be needed. Decreasing salt consumption, increasing calcium intake, and increasing the awareness of the health value of fibre may all be beneficial in the context of chronic disease prevention.  (+info)

Bioterrorism alleging use of anthrax and interim guidelines for management--United States, 1998. (4/5122)

From October 30 through December 23, 1998, CDC received reports of a series of bioterroristic threats of anthrax exposure. Letters alleged to contain anthrax were sent to health clinics on October 30, 1998, in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. During December 17-23 in California, a letter alleged to contain anthrax was sent to a private business, and three telephone threats of anthrax contamination of ventilation systems were made to private and public buildings. All threats were hoaxes and are under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and local law enforcement officials. The public health implications of these threats were investigated to assist in developing national public health guidelines for responding to bioterrorism. This report summarizes the findings of these investigations and provides interim guidance for public health authorities on bioterrorism related to anthrax.  (+info)

Cancer mortality by educational level in the city of Barcelona. (5/5122)

The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between educational level and mortality from cancer in the city of Barcelona. The data were derived from a record linkage between the Barcelona Mortality Registry and the Municipal Census. The relative risks (RR) of death and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) according to level of education were derived from Poisson regression models. For all malignancies, men in the lowest educational level had a RR of death of 1.21 (95% CI 1.13-1.29) compared with men with a university degree, whereas for women a significant decreasing in risk was observed (RR 0.81; 95% CI 0.74-0.90). Among men, significant negative trends of increasing risk according to level of education were present for cancer of the mouth and pharynx (RR 1.70 for lowest vs. highest level of education), oesophagus (RR 2.14), stomach (RR 1.99), larynx (RR 2.56) and lung (RR 1.35). Among women, cervical cancer was negatively related to education (RR 2.62), whereas a positive trend was present for cancers of the colon (RR 0.76), pancreas (RR 0.59), lung (RR 0.55) and breast (RR 0.65). The present study confirms for the first time, at an individual level, the existence of socioeconomic differences in mortality for several cancer sites in Barcelona, Spain. There is a need to implement health programmes and public health policies to reduce these inequities.  (+info)

Respiratory tract infections as a public health challenge. (6/5122)

Acute respiratory infections have everywhere become the province of clinicians and the pharmaceutical industry. A public health approach is needed with systematic efforts to minimize transmission, maximize prevention, and harness the research and surveillance effort to decrease their incidence and severity. These infections have a huge incidence, morbidity burden, and economic impact in all societies. Several factors now demand renewed attention to prevention. They include the growing costs and potentially limited benefits of an expanded pharmacotherapeutic approach; the serious change in antibiotic susceptibility of the common respiratory pathogens; the advances made in vaccinology in recent years; and the need to promote equity and share limited health resources across the world's population. Care should not be restricted to those in affluent countries who can afford increasingly expensive treatment.  (+info)

The US Food and Drug Administration investigational device exemptions (IDE) and clinical investigation of cardiovascular devices: information for the investigator. (7/5122)

The conduct of a clinical investigation of a medical device to determine the safety and effectiveness of the device is covered by the investigational device exemptions (IDE) regulation. The purpose of IDE regulation is "to encourage, to the extent consistent with the protection of public health and safety and with ethical standards, the discovery and development of useful devices intended for human use, and to that end to maintain optimum freedom for scientific investigators in their pursuit of this purpose" (Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act). Conducting a clinical investigation may require an approved IDE application. The US Food and Drug Administration encourages early interaction with the agency through the pre-IDE process during the development of a device or technology and during the preparation of an IDE application. This facilitates approval of the IDE application and progression into the clinical investigation. This paper reviews the terminology and applicability of the IDE regulation and the type of study that requires an IDE application to the Food and Drug Administration. The pre-IDE process and the development of an IDE application for a significant risk study of a cardiovascular device are discussed.  (+info)

Skirting the issue: women and international health in historical perspective. (8/5122)

Over the last decades women have become central to international health efforts, but most international health agencies continue to focus narrowly on the maternal and reproductive aspects of women's health. This article explores the origins of this paradigm as demonstrated in the emergence of women's health in the Rockefeller Foundation's public health programs in Mexico in the 1920s and 1930s. These efforts bore a significant reproductive imprint; women dispensed and received services oriented to maternal and childbearing roles. Women's health and social advocacy movements in Mexico and the United States partially shaped this interest. Even more important, the emphasis on women in the Rockefeller programs proved an expedient approach to the Foundation's underlying goals: promoting bacteriologically based public health to the government, medical personnel, business interests, and peasants; helping legitimize the Mexican state; and transforming Mexico into a good political and commercial neighbor. The article concludes by showing the limits to the maternal and reproductive health model currently advocated by most donor agencies, which continue to skirt--or sidestep--major concerns that are integral to the health of women.  (+info)

Intent: We will describe a partnership between three universities, two in Norway and one in Canada, in order to illustrate how the integration of occupational science and public health perspectives on diverse health determinants contributed to interdisciplinary graduate education through a collaborative international exchange. Two specific initiatives will be addressed: the development of integrated occupational science and public health curriculum materials, and the participation of students from each country in courses at the institutions overseas. Argument: The conditions of everyday life and the occupations these conditions enable are well recognized as key determinants of health and well-being within occupational science, occupational therapy and public health. Within occupational science in particular, there is growing recognition that full realization of the vision of health promotion through occupation requires expanding beyond individual-level approaches in order to address socio-political

Legal intervention to influence individual health behavior has increased dramatically since the 1960s. This paper describes the rise of law as a tool of public health, and the scientific research that has assessed and often guided it, with a focus on five major domains: traffic safety, gun violence, tobacco use, reproductive health and obesity. These topical stories illustrate both laws effectiveness and limitations as a public health tool. They also establish its popularity by the most apt of metrics - the willingness of legislators to enact it. The five examples demonstrate that public health law research can and does influence the development and refinement of legal interventions over time. Measuring the impact of laws can be difficult, but the field has the tools of theory and methods necessary to produce robust results. It is past time for public health research to receive institutional, professional and funding support commensurate with its social importance.. Read the paper on ...
Most public health activities are aimed at preventing illness or improving the general health status of a nations population. What we spend on public health services is an investment in the nations health that will bear fruit, in terms of reduced expenditure on illness, over time.This publication, the second in a series that reports on public health expenditure in Australia, provides information about public health costs. It summarises estimates of expenditure from key health departments and agencies of the Commonwealth and each State and Territory Government and shows that, in 1999-00, Australian governments spent a total of $931 million on public health activities.The report examines expenditure by governments in nine core public health activity categories, showing which activities incur the most expenditure. For the first time, it also presents estimates of expenditure by local government and non-government organisations on activities with a public health focus.. ...
The recognition that disease ecology, conservation biology, and public health share common ground is an exciting idea, especially if the intersection of these fields results in win-win scenarios for both conservation and public health. Recently in PNAS, Civitello et al. (1) claimed that overwhelming broad evidence supports the dilution effect hypothesis, in which biodiversity loss increases disease risk. Consequently, they suggest that conservation of biodiversity offers a promising strategy to mitigate human health threats. A key element of their argument is that our previous meta-analysis (2), which failed to find unequivocal support for dilution effects in zoonotic disease systems, should be discounted. … ↵1To whom correspondence should be addressed.

Underpinned by a commitment to principles of social justice and fairness, this intercalated BSc in global public health will provide students with a public health perspective on todays global challenges.. Technology and medical science make many promises for the improvement of human health, whether in post-genomic medicine or rapid vaccine production. But todays global health crises remind us that the root causes of good health lie in political, social, legal, and economic systems. This is a time of growing inequalities and of threats to sustainable development, and the issue of inequality is becoming more important in public, political, and academic debate.. Doctors working not just in public health but all specialties need to understand how to address these developments. By taking a year away from your medical studies you step back to see the bigger picture of global health and get a better sense of the contributions you can go on to make in medicine. You will equip yourself with the tools ...

Introduction to the Public Health Approach. Glyn G. Caldwell, MD December 13, 2006. What is Public health?. Slideshow 160501 by Anita
People are social animals. People connect with each other. To connect is to acknowledge one another. It is a rite of passage. Connections are cumulative, resulting from repetitive actions such as listening to others. To be connected is to bond with say, an empathetic person. It is one way we all get to know each others interests and dislikes. Connections tame and make us accountable. Connections enable us to understand each other or realize we can agree to disagree. Connections are an opportunity to share points of view, opinions, differences and similarities. In some cases relations are consummated sexually. Connections should encourage negotiated safer sex as far as HIV is concerned. This builds in us the ability to value one another and be mindful of the consequences consensual sex. This sets the pace for safe relations. Safety is an important point as far HIV is concerned. Safety is shared responsibility and this calls for: voluntary HIV status check-ups; knowing ones HIV status; partner ...
What I am realizing at this point is that IF this outbreak would have been airborne from the start we would pretty much have a global pandemic at this point and mass chaos all over the globe. The events in Dallas over the last few weeks have shown just how little we can control what happens and how ill prepared the CDC was. The patient zero has managed to infect 2 nurses that were treating him. If that can happen here in America where we have the best minds and technology AND the virus is not currently spread via the air then it proves to me that we have no idea what we are doing. American hospitals have no idea what to do with Ebola and the CDC has failed miserably to this point in protecting the workers trying to save people with Ebola. It appears to me that the CDC was operating under the concept that Ebola would not be able to get here....epic fail that COULD have deadly consequences for us all. We were unprepared, its that simple. The CDC and US government has had how long to prepare for ...

In 2011, FHS Lecturer Dr. Andrea Nicki prompted a group of highly motivated students to establish a student health ethics club to create a venue for discussing course readings. And so began the FHS Health Ethics Club.. The Club was officially formed in August of 2011 and has about 40 members. The club has been a source of intellectual inspiration for students. According to Club president, Emily Rousseau, The club provides a great opportunity to combine my science background with my interest in ethics. Since many of our laws are guided by ethical principles, I believe that a better understanding of health policies and practices from an ethical standpoint allows for a more critical analysis of public health legislation. . Club members aim to encourage students to think critically about the benefits and harm of certain public health initiatives, health policies, and medical practices. Additionally, the club aims to bring together members of the the SFU student body in a welcoming atmosphere free ...

The ONeill Institute for National and Global Health Law, in collaboration with the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA), has received a grant from the Open Philanthropy Project to help develop guidelines on how states, countries, and other jurisdictions that opt to legalize cannabis for medical or recreational purposes can create regulatory frameworks, consistent with the goals of legalization, that will work effectively to protect and promote the public health.. In addition to looking at available research and the experience of those jurisdictions that have already legalized cannabis for medical or recreational purposes, the organizations leaders say they will also draw from the public health communitys considerable experience relating to the regulation of other products, such as tobacco, alcohol and both over-the-counter and prescription drugs. The ONeill-WOLA collaboration brings the public health aspects of cannabis legalization to the forefront and seeks to generate more ...

Mandatory communicable disease reporting affords public health officials with the opportunity to investigate communicable diseases and take action to protect the health of the community. Identification and reporting of communicable disease is a collaborative effort among physicians and other health care providers, veterinarians, hospitals and other health facilities, laboratories, and the local public health system. Timely reporting of the specific illness or condition, as well as any unusual manifestations of disease, will allow public health officials to determine if further action is necessary to protect public health, such as isolation or quarantine of an individual or group of individuals. Thus, communicable disease reporting and investigation is an integral part of public health emergency law.. Before action is taken, it is critical that officials have a thorough understanding of the disease in question, including issues such as mode of transmission (i.e., airborne or through contact with ...
The Privacy Rule recognizes 1) the legitimate need for public health authorities and others responsible for ensuring the publics health and safety to have access to PHI to conduct their missions; and 2) the importance of public health reporting by covered entities to identify threats to the public and individuals. Accordingly, the rule 1) permits PHI disclosures without a written patient authorization for specified public health purposes to public health authorities legally authorized to collect and receive the information for such purposes, and 2) permits disclosures that are required by state and local public health or other laws. However, because the Privacy Rule affects the traditional ways PHI is used and exchanged among covered entities (e.g., doctors, hospitals, and health insurers), it can affect public health practice and research in multiple ways. To prevent misconceptions, understanding the Privacy Rule is important for public health practice. Some illustrative examples are presented ...
Abstract. Undergraduate public health and global health studies are usually found at universities with graduate programs in the disciplines. Following the experience of teaching a short course in global health within the liberal arts, we reviewed global and public health offerings at 50 liberal arts colleges for the 2009-2010 academic year. Forty-two percent had a track, concentration, or program, and 30% had global or public health student organizations. All colleges listed at least one course in the fields, with the highest number in the social sciences. However, many colleges had not coordinated them into a theme. Values of a liberal arts education are found in the study of global and public health: social responsibility, critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and knowledge of the wider world. We propose identifying these programs within the undergraduate liberal arts as global public health. Capturing interest in global public health will enhance the curriculum and student experience. In this day and

The Center for Public Health, School of Health Systems Studies, Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) welcomes applications for its Study in India Program on Public Health in India.. About the Program:. With rapid economic growth and urbanization, with increase in globalization and trade and with growing inequities between nations and within nations, public health has become more of a challenge than ever before. Public health or the health of populations is the outcome of health systems, which are a composite of the organization of clinical health care services, preventive and promotive health care, and action on the social determinants of health. Health systems are complex adaptive systems whose evolution is influenced by their own path of development, the socio-cultural and economic contexts in which they evolve and the influence wielded by different stakeholders. Studying health systems across national and International contexts, helps understand how health systems have evolved in other ...
A November 24, 2020 Presidents update regarding the new Public Health directives announced earlier in the day and what this means for students.
Edited by Dr. Miguel Ángel Royo-Bordonada. This thematic series on public health ethics follows a previous Public Health Reviews issue on the topic of public health ethics training in the European region, to emphasize the neglect and the importance of the topic for public health education in Europe. The current issue evolved from a Working Group of the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER) which was mandated to develop public health ethics curriculum materials for European schools of public health, as well as for practitioners and policy makers. Training of public health professionals in this field is essential to ensure confidence, credibility and public trust, when addressing the wide range of ethical conflicts that arise frequently in public health policy and practice.. Publication charges for this collection were funded by ASPHER. Articles have undergone the journals standard peer-review process overseen by the Guest Editor, who declares no competing ...
Across the country, in state legislators and in party platforms, politicians have introduced resolutions and pledges declaring internet pornography a public health crisis. It is not grounded and fact, and is already being used as a pretext to get around First Amendment restrictions on adult entertainment. To date thirteen of these proposed resolutions have died, six have passed, and thirteen are currently active.. No reputable, science-based public health organization has labeled pornography a public health crisis. Not the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, or any state health department.. For religious conservatives, anti-sex legislators, and anti-porn censors, the rise in accessibility of adult material, coupled with a conservative political moment, has become a cause for action. They claim that this access to porn will result ...

The authors describe Five Essential Public Health Law Services and suggest investment in the people, methods and tools needed to move major policy initiatives from conception to widespread implementation. The model reflects a transdisciplinary approach integrating public health legal practice with law-related surveillance, evaluation and enforcement functions usually performed by public health practitioners. As an elaboration of law-related activities within the Ten Essential Public Health Services, the framework can be used to define, evaluate and strengthen public health law functions. The framework presented defines the components of a strategic investment that can turn evidence and expertise into better health, faster.. ...
COVID-19 is a stark reminder of the importance of our public health infrastructure and workforce. Public health departments must respond quickly to emergencies while maintaining the day-to-day work they do to support healthy communities. But annual spending falls $4.5 billion short of what is needed to ensure that all communities are served by health departments with comprehensive capabilities. The result is increased vulnerability to health emergencies like COVID-19, as well as to emerging and ongoing public health challenges like chronic diseases and substance misuse. The Public Health Infrastructure Saves Lives Act (S. 4740) would establish a Core Public Health Infrastructure Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), awarding grants to state, local, tribal and territorial health departments to ensure they have the tools, workforce and systems in place to address existing and emerging health threats and reduce health disparities. How will sustained investment in Public ...

This book examines the critical role of anthropology in four crucial public health domains: (1) anthropological understandings of public health problems such as malaria, HIV/AIDS, and diabetes; (2) the anthropological design of public health interventions in areas such as tobacco control and elder care; (3) anthropological evaluations of public health initiatives such as Safe Motherhood and polio eradication; and (4) anthropological critiques of public health policies, including neoliberal health care reforms. Anthropologists provide crucial understandings of public health problems from the perspectives of the populations in which the problems occur. On the basis of such understandings, anthropologists may develop and implement interventions to address particular public health problems, often working in collaboration with local participants. Anthropologists also work as evaluators, examining the activities of public health institutions and the successes and failures of public health programs.

This chapter examines three primary public health goals relating to elderly populations: promoting healthy aging (including aging in place), reducing health inequities, and extending life spans. It then considers the ways in which programs or policies to advance population-wide goals are challenged to meet ethical responsibilities to protect older adults from harm, respect their autonomy and dignity, and treat them fairly or justly when resources are limited. Lastly, by looking at a difficult situation commonly faced in hospitals-the discharge of an elderly patient who may not be able to safely return home-the chapter introduces questions about the relationship between public health ethics, clinical ethics, and social justice, and about the future role of public health as a field of inquiry and action.
Oral health is an integral component of general health and well being and a basic human right. Dental public health is probably the most challenging specialty of dentistry. Because of the lack of adequate resources among other factors, many people are likely to suffer from dental diseases. Despite great improvements in the oral health status of populations across the world, the burden and impact of dental diseases are still high. This is particularly true among underprivileged groups in both developed and developing communities. Oral diseases and conditions, including oral cancer, oral manifestations of HIV/AIDS, dental trauma, craniofacial anomalies, and noma, all have broad impacts on health and well-being. Oral cancer, the sixth most common cancer worldwide continues to be most prevalent cancer related to the consumption of tobacco, alcohol and other carcinogenic products. Nevertheless, significant reduction in mortality can be achieved by advances in early diagnosis and implementation of

Public Health - Seattle & King County provides a wide variety of regional services that protect and promote the health of all 1.8 million citizens of King County, as well as the hundreds of thousands of workers and tourists who enter the County each day.

The PHOMP will assure that funding challenges that have and will continue to face Public Health for the foreseeable future can be met strategically and rationally. The funding challenges arise from a combination of limited or declining federal and state revenues, increasing costs of existing public health services, and increasing public health needs/mandates. Increasing public health needs and mandates arise from changes in our Countys demographics, emergent diseases and concerns such as pandemic flu, West Nile virus, and terrorism, and an increasing number of ...
The interaction between diabetes mellitus and alcohol consumption is complex. While regular light-tomoderate drinking may decrease the risk for diabetes, heavy drinking increases this risk (1, 2). Moreover, alcohol consumption, especially binge drinking (heavy episodic consumption), can worsen the course of the disease and influence its outcomes via a number of mechanisms. Recent meta-analyses, systematic reviews, and primary studies (1, 2) illustrate the multiple ways alcohol consumption can affect diabetes, and provide the basis for integrating alcohol control measures into the public health approach to diabetes prevention and management within the context of the World Health Organization (WHO) global strategy to reduce the harmful use of alcohol (3). This article describes the association between alcohol use and diabetes within the context of new conceptual and preventive developments in the management of diabetes from a public health perspective.

Boston. #BUSPHSymposia. Climate change will have enormous impacts on human health and well-being throughout the world. In response, many cities are developing farsighted policies to reduce carbon emissions while also adapting to ongoing changes. However, high-level political support for climate action remains weak, and policymakers need to be able to articulate the benefits of their climate policies. Public health researchers are documenting how urban climate solutions can directly benefit the health of local residents, but this research has not yet been communicated in a manner that has motivated effective action. This symposium will bring together thought leaders from public health, cities, and journalism to develop strategies that bring greater attention to-and produce visionary actions that address-the global climate challenge. Co-hosted with the Pulitzer Center. Additional collaborators include Boston University Initiative on Cities; Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at ...

The Health Journalism 2015 panel on e-cigarette use, or vaping, was anything but dull. Des Moines Register health reporter Tony Leys lined up the selection of guests, including public health researcher Judith Prochaska of Stanford Prevention Research Center, American Vaping Association president Greg Conley and Atlanta-based independent journalist Sonya Collins. The highly divergent presentations of Prochaska and Conley expertly set up Collins final presentation to talk about the middle ground she found in her reporting.. The greatest challenge for journalists in writing about e-cigarettes is that they are so new - the data we would like to have are not available yet. The data that we do have are greatly limited. The opinions and perspectives of stakeholders vary greatly and are passionate. Public health researchers who recall the days of Big Tobaccos lies regarding the harms of cigarettes are deeply skeptical and uneasy about investigating potential benefits or reduced risks from ...

Public health partners can circumvent the political system when it lacks the will to pursue critical public health goals.. Public health partners are nongovernmental organizations, including private nonprofit community health centers and networks that deliver health services. Partnerships can accomplish goals that might otherwise be out of reach for state agencies.. In New Hampshire, partnerships are an integral component of the public health system.

As part of its assessment of partnership activity, the New Hampshire Division of Public Health Services (DPHS) asked partners to complete a survey regarding their public health spending. This statistical investigation reviews the data collected in the DPHS survey, compares partner versus traditional funding strategies, applies the funding formula analysis tool, and estimates political support for competing funding proposals.. ...

BLOOMINGTON, IN-(Marketwired - January 03, 2018) - CleanSlate Centers, a national leader in outpatient medication-assisted treatment for opioid and alcohol addiction, today announced the opening of a new center in Bloomington, Indiana to fight opioid addiction and death from overdose. The new office-based center, located at 502 W. 2nd St. Suite A in Bloomington, began seeing patients last week.. Indiana is one of four states that have seen fatal drug overdoses quadruple since 1999. Today, Hoosiers are more likely to die of an overdose from prescription and illegal drugs than a car accident. There are not enough addiction treatment facilities or doctors in the state to meet the rising need, and patients often get placed on a waiting list while seeking treatment.1 Rising heroin and prescription opioid use is driving a public health crisis in Bloomington. As heroin use has dramatically increased, so have cases of hepatitis C and concern over a potential increase in HIV transmission.2. Helping ...

The Brazilian Highlands or Brazilian Plateau (Portuguese: Planalto Brasileiro) are an extensive geographical region, covering most of the eastern, southern and central portions of Brazil, in all approximately half of the country's land area, or some 4,500,000 km2 (1,930,511 sq mi). In addition, the vast majority of Brazil's population (190,755,799; 2010 census) lives in the highlands or on the narrow coastal region immediately adjacent to it. Ancient basaltic lava flows gave birth to much of the region. However, the time of dramatic geophysical activity is long past, as there is now no seismic or volcanic activity. Erosion has also played a large part in shaping the Highlands, forming extensive sedimentary deposits and wearing down the mountains. The Brazilian Highlands are recognized for the great diversity to be found there: within the region there are several different biomes, vastly different climatic conditions, many types of soil, and thousands of animal and plant species. ...

The French minister of education appointed a panel headed by Jean-Paul Fitoussi to inquire into economics teaching.[7] In 2000, the panel called for limited reform.[8] Articles associated with the movement were published in the Post-Autistic Economics Newsletter from September 2000. This electronic newsletter became the Post-Autistic Economics Review and, since 2008, has existed as the peer-reviewed journal Real-World Economics Review.[9] Several responses to the French students' open letter were also published in Le Monde. A counter-petition signed by 15 French economists was published in October 2000.[10] Robert Solow adhered to the "main thesis" of the French students' petition, but criticised the "opaque and almost incomprehensible" debate that followed among academics.[11] Olivier Blanchard also published a response defending mainstream economics.[9] Other notable economists, such as Steve Keen and James K. Galbraith, wrote elsewhere in support of the French students.[12] ...
