A new article published in the latest issue of ADEAs scholarly publication, the Journal of Dental Education (JDE), illustrates the need for dental schools to become actively involved in recruiting students to practice dentistry in underserved areas. The article provides an example for how to implement such a program.. "Every state school has the responsibility to work to assure a dental workforce for their state," said David C. Johnsen, D.D.S., M.S., Dean of The University of Iowa College of Dentistry & Dental Clinics (UI COD).. The JDE article, "Retaining New Dentists in Iowa: A Role for Dental Schools in Facilitating Graduates Connections to Practice Opportunities in Underserved Areas," shows how UI COD addressed the concomitant problems of having an aging dental workforce and a high percentage of counties designated as Dental Health Professional Shortage Areas (DHPSAs) in the state of Iowa. The article was written by Debra A. Hoyle, B.S.W.; Penni M. Ryan, B.L.S., C.P.P.; Jed S. Hand, ...

Health professional shortage area (HPSA) designations were created to highlight areas of primary care shortage and direct incentives to physicians willing to practice in these areas. We demonstrate the volatility of these geographies by examining the HPSA status of primary care physicians whose practice locations were the same in 2008 and 2013. Although the change in the percentage of physicians practicing in HPSAs over this period was negligible, approximately 28% of the stationary physicians lost a primary care HPSA designation, whereas about 21% gained a designation.
Reasons for the shortage of primary care physicians in regions designated as Health Professional Shortage Areas and steps that medical schools and state and federal policymakers can take to alleviate the shortage.

Introduced the bipartisan Ensuring Seniors Access to Local Pharmacies Act of 2015 (H.R. 793) with Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) to allow any willing pharmacy located within medically underserved or health professional shortage areas, like our rural communities in Southwest Virginia, to participate in Medicare Part D preferred networks. While Medicare Part D preferred pharmacy network plans were designed to make prescription drugs more affordable for beneficiaries, these plans have created confusion for seniors and put community pharmacies at a competitive disadvantage. Some seniors, especially in rural areas, have reported having to travel upwards of 20 miles in order to get their medications from a preferred pharmacy network because their local community pharmacy was not given the opportunity to participate in such a network. For me, this is an issue of fairness for all those who make their home in rural America. ...

California hospitals are concerned about the need for an adequate supply of highly skilled health professionals to meet the demands for health care services now and in the future. Numerous studies have validated the need to address critical health professional shortages in nursing and the allied health occupations. However, efforts to implement recommended strategies have been hindered by a lack of a coordinated statewide effort involving health employers and other necessary partners. In response to the need for focus on this issue and the need for statewide solutions, CHA established the CHA Workforce Committee in 2007. Members of the committee include a broad cross-section of Californias hospitals, both urban and rural, and also represent the states various geographic regions. The committee has been focused primarily on allied health professional shortages, but in 2013 broadened its mission to include supporting various statewide nursing and physician shortage initiatives. The committee ...
Sens Jon Tester (D-MT) and Roger Wicker (R-MS) addressed approximately 1,000 physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students of physical therapy on Capitol Hill today as they rallied in support of legislation to increase patient access to rehabilitative care. Tester and Wicker, sponsors of the Physical Therapist Student Loan Repayment Eligibility Act (S 975), spoke about the importance of adding physical therapist to National Health Service Corps Loan Repayment Program and recruiting them to rural and underserved areas. Following the event, rally participants met with their members of Congress to ask them to support S 975 and the Houses companion bill HR 1426. They also advocated for the Medicare Access to Rehabilitation Services Act (HR 1546/S 829), legislation that would repeal the cap on outpatient rehabilitative services for Medicare beneficiaries, and the Protecting Student Athletes from Concussions Act (HR 469). HR 469 includes physical therapists in the multidisciplinary ...

Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell of Washington is a prime reason President Obama will have a hard time getting health care reform passed this year. Let me explain this seeming oddity. At a news conference on May 27 in Yakima, Wa., the purportedly liberal Cantwell, who represents a state that voted 58 percent for Obama, announced her support for two new, bipartisan bills that would advance a key goal of Obamas reforms - increasing access to primary care physicians and other doctors who are in short supply. As Massachusetts has discovered, making sure nearly everyone has health insurance doesnt help if there arent enough doctors to take care of them.. The two bills Cantwell endorsed feature provisions that would cost the federal government billions of dollars a year - scholarships and loan forgiveness for medical students who serve in shortage areas, increased funding for the National Health Service Corps, higher Medicare payments to primary care doctors, more Medicare funding for resident ...

Since FY 2010, CDCs budget authority has actually decreased by 11.4 percent (adjusted for inflation). This cut has occurred in spite of the growing and geographically disparate burden of largely preventable health threats such as the opioid epidemic and emerging infectious disease outbreaks such as the Zika virus.. CHIP, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), National Health Service Corps, the Special Diabetes Program and other important programs are critical to ensuring that Americans have access to health care and to improving equity in health outcomes. However, cutting CDC funding undermines the core missions of those programs, as CDC activities supported by the Prevention Fund work in concert with primary care providers to keep Americans healthy. These are separate and distinct sets of activities that work together to protect the health of Americans.. Programs funded through the LHHS appropriations bill, including public health, education, and job training programs funded with ...

Background: Evidence suggests that the experience of cancer differs across racial and ethnic underserved populations. We describe the referral patterns and clinical characteristics of patients receiving care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institutes clinical outreach community cancer program, an initiative established to improve access to quality cancer care across the spectrum of the disease for medically underserved patients.. Methods: Two hundred and twenty five patients, receiving care at our community cancer care site, based within a Federally Qualified Health Center in Boston, were consented to research and enrolled between January 2012 and June 2015. The program accommodates all oncology and hematology referrals from primary care providers (PCP) at the health center. Variables of interest were collected through medical chart review and a patient intake survey that was developed for the program, and included age, gender, ethnicity, health insurance coverage, reasons for referral, presence of ...
I am currently a physical therapist working in a rural hospital. I also grew up in a small town with an underserved population desperate with physical therapy needs. PTs are highly trained and qualified health professionals that now require a doctoral level degree to graduate and practice. With that increased schooling comes increased financial debt. Due to the financial demands of my student loans from PT school, I found myself at a quandary of what to do... Follow my heart and serve the needs of those who are underserved and who i know need my services most or move to a larger city for employment which salary is needed to repay these PT school loans? To allow PTs to participate in the NHSC loan repayment program would offer more PTs the affordable opportunity to serve these areas and increase the retention rate of highly trained staff in rural and underserved areas.

We observed a significant improvement in glycemic control as a decrease in mean HbA1c among participants who attended ≥2 appointments at FQHCs. By contrast, participants who did not use the FQHC as their primary provider did not have a significant improvement in glycemic control, even though they had a mean of 1.9 free clinic visits (SD, 0.98 visits) at the 9-month follow up. Although a few studies have shown that underserved patients can achieve control of chronic conditions such as diabetes under the care of free clinics, this seems to be possible when continuity of care is achieved, since their participants visited the free clinics on average ,5 times in a 12-month period.14,15 Hence we attribute the improved glycemic control found in this study in part to physician-patient relationships during continuous care.. We surmise that improved adherence to medication regimens is also of particular importance. As shown in Table 3, before the intervention, participants reported not taking their ...

Mobile operators around the world are witnessing a surge in data traffic as smartphone use increases, devices become more affordable and network capacity expands. One way in which they are responding to this data explosion is by adopting new, small-cell architectures that can better target underserved areas in developed markets, and extend services into previously unconnected remote and rural areas.. The technology developed for femtocells, the compact home base stations which have already been extensively deployed in many markets as a consumer offering, is now being adapted as a small-cell solution for outdoor metropolitan and rural deployments; an approach which is attracting keen interest from operators and vendors alike.. In a global survey carried out on behalf of iDirect by Informa Telecoms & Media, the use of small cells as a means of providing wireless or mobile access in rural and underserved areas attracted widespread support, with almost half (47%) of respondents favoring small cells ...

A 2006 UCLA study found that Los Angeles was well behind other major west coast cities in terms of park space. Even worse, a 2016 report done by the LANLT found that less than 30% of the total L.A. population - the majority of which are from low-income communities - have access to parks in their area. Thats why a group of GAP leaders are branching out and becoming involved in a separate program by the LANLT - the Park Equity Leadership Academy. Through this program, the students join other L.A. communities in advocating for more green spaces all around the city..

One goal all sides can agree on, but have yet to meaningfully address, is the need to end the crisis of primary care in the United States.. Without taking steps to fix it, any attempt at reforming our health system cannot succeed...Many solutions propose to rectify the economic factors, such as lower salaries, that discourage medical students from pursuing careers in primary care medicine. But there is scant discussion of rebuilding our health care system around the primary care doctor-patient relationship. To achieve this, three ideas are essential: teamwork, technology and integration. ...

Although infectious agents contribute significantly to the overall global cancer burden, it is important to realize that oncogenesis is actually an uncommon outcome of infection and is a deviation from the normal life cycle of these pathogens. Pathogen-induced oncogenesis, when it does occur, usually arises many years after the initial infection. This delay indicates that additional steps are required beyond infection by the pathogen (5). As one would expect, there are increased rates of pathogen-driven cancers where infection rates are higher, such as in developing countries, underserved communities, and among immunosuppressed populations. A meta-analysis of two immunosuppressed populations (HIV/AIDS patients and transplant patients) demonstrated a significantly increased incidence of several types of cancer, most of which were pathogen-driven (16). Higher rates were reported of EBV-lymphoma/leukemia, HBV- and HCV-hepatocellular carcinoma, HPV-cervical cancer, and H. pylori-associated gastric ...

Good health requires good oral health, yet millions of Americans, especially vulnerable and underserved populations, lack access to basic oral health care. The Health Resources and Services Administration and the California HealthCare Foundation asked the IOM and the National Research Council to assess the current oral health care system and make recommendations on ways to improve access to care for vulnerable and underserved populations. The IOM recommends changes to incorporate oral health care into overall health care, changes in education and training of all types of health care professionals, and changes in how oral health care is financed and delivered.

Hemeos, a student startup aimed at connecting bone marrow stem cell donors to underserved minority recipients, has been threatened in recent weeks by proposed federal regulations, which could make the companys business model illegal.. Originally founded by alumni Jon Fernandez (GRD 16), Doug Grant (GRD 16) and Craig Poland (GRD 16) in 2015, Hemeos gained attention in the university community in May when it won first place out of 80 contestants at the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiatives Entrepalooza pitch competition.. The startup, which matches primarily black transplant applicants to compatible marrow donors through a digital registry, incentivizes donation with a $2,000 payment, according to its website.. However, Hemeos is now in danger of violating federal regulations regarding payment for bone marrow stem cells..

Columbus -Today, Assistant Senate Democratic Leader Charleta B. Tavares (D - Columbus) voted against Senate Bill 214, legislation aimed at defunding Planned Parenthood centers throughout Ohio. Planned Parenthood centers are primarily located in medically underserved areas, and a loss of funding would take away the only option for health care services for many Ohioans. "Twenty-six of the twenty-eight Planned Parenthood centers are located in medically underserved areas," said Senator Tavares." "The health care system in Ohio simply does not have enough providers to absorb all of the patients currently served by Planned Parenthood. We are placing personal politics ahead of the wellbeing of women across the state of Ohio.". Senator Tavares also spoke against the committee process and treatment of the opponents who came to testify against Senate Bill 214. Senate Bill 214 was placed in the Government Oversight and Reform committee where there are eleven male members and only one female. There are ...
An overlooked part of the development of public broadcasting in America is the key role that Rockefeller philanthropy played in studying and funding educational radio before World War II.

It is the first example of a foundation underwriting the creation of American public media designed for non-English speakers.
Medical schools in the Northeast generally performed poorly on all three measures and, as such, had the lowest regional social mission scores.. Public medical schools graduated higher proportions of primary care physicians than their private counterparts did.. Schools with substantial National Institutes of Health research funding generally produced fewer primary care physicians and physicians practicing in underserved areas, and thus had lower social mission scores overall.. Several large research institutions (notably the University of Minnesota and University of Washington) defied this trend, ranking in the top quartile for overall social mission score.. Historically black schools had the highest social mission rankings.. Osteopathic schools produced more primary care physicians than allopathic schools but trained fewer minorities.. Schools in progressively smaller cities produced more primary care physicians and physicians who practiced in underserved communities but graduated fewer ...

Cruise notes that many vulnerable people lack the resources that allow them to manage their health effectively, and nurses should be prepared to meet these patients right where they are, without judgment.. "They may have low literacy, live in poverty, live in environments that are polluted, run down, or crime-ridden; and work in jobs with low pay and dangerous conditions," says Cruise. "People in these situations will pick up on a disapproving attitude by the nurse and shut down, shut the nurse out, and be less likely to follow his or her health care directions. Nurses should adopt a caring approach. While not condoning negative or criminal behaviors, accepting clients as they are and demonstrating concern for their health and well-being are more likely to motivate them to listen to the nurses advice and make positive changes.". Jan Jones-Schenk, national director of Western Governors Universitys (WGU) College of Health Professions and chief nursing officer for WGU, encourages nurses working ...
The healthcare needs of underserved communities are diverse and manifold. With HIV pandemic ravaging through India, and appalling healthcare systems, the need is compelling to integrate different tenets of healthcare services to make effective comprehensive HIV prevention, treatment, care and support a reality.

Oxygen saturation level is a key vital sign used in clinical medicine today. Severely low levels of oxygen in the blood can lead to hypoxemia, causing cellular hypoxia, organ dysfunction, and even death. However, the instrumentation used to measure oxygen saturation does not operate with the desired reliability for such an important metric, Group 9 said.. A pulse oximeter is a noninvasive device typically used to measure a patients oxygen saturation, but this apparatus has significant limitations in certain patient populations. False or inaccurate readings are often found in patients with poor peripheral circulation, vasodilatory states, or vasoconstrictive states. In order to obtain this measurement in these patient populations, the Intensive Care Unit must conduct a very painful, invasive procedure known as an arterial puncture, and draw a significant amount of blood from an arterial catheter in order to conduct the arterial blood gas test. The device that Group 9 is designing, however, aims ...
The MLSDF is reserved for a student dedicated to working with terminally ill patients and their families, particularly in underserved communities. Instituted in 2010, this SDF honors a student of the program who lost her battle with cancer when she was a third-year student, Moriam Lanrewaju. This award is designated for work with underserved populations (patients and their families) affected by terminal illness. Past awardees have committed to working with those populations (and their families) who suffer from chronic medical conditions and who may have limited access to mental health services. We also encourage awardees to devote their clinical research efforts (during and after the program) to better understand what might be effective service planning for such populations. At the end of each training year, they will be asked to send a summary of your work to the family, such that they can be aware of the work being done in Moriams memory..

Geographic adjustments should be used to ensure the accuracy of payments, said the committee that wrote the report, but they are not optimal tools to tackle larger national policy goals such as improving access to care in medically underserved areas.. ...
Archived since: Dec, 2006. Description: The Department of Health works to promote, protect and improve the health and well-being of Tennesseans. Keeping people healthy by preventing problems that contribute to disease and injury is the overall emphasis of the Department.

Multiple nuclear medicine and cardiology groups-including SNMMI-published a joint statement in September expressing a similar sentiment. In it, the groups said the CMS decision to assume a 90% utilization rate for PET cameras needed to be "reconsidered." ...
