  • Comparison of Preventive Health Behaviors Among Hispanics" by Belinda Reininger, Jing Wang et al. (wku.edu)
  • Adherence to preventive health behaviors for chronic diseases would avert 80% of all heart disease, stroke, type II diabetes, and more than 40% of cancer cases. (wku.edu)
  • The purpose of this study is to describe the preventive health behaviors for chronic diseases among Mexican Americans residing along U.S.-Mexico border and in the U.S. (wku.edu)
  • Nationally, but particularly true among Mexican Americans along the Texas-Mexico border, the majority of Mexican Americans had poor preventive health behaviors and are at risk for multiple non-communicable chronic diseases. (wku.edu)

  • CONCLUSION
  • Conclusion: In travelling abroad and working as part of internationally collaborative teams to study occupational science, occupational therapy, and public health, students and faculty participating in the interdisciplinary educational exchange program have had diverse opportunities to broaden their focus to 'the social' and expand their own disciplinary location.

  • In 1999, for the first time since at least 1987, the percentage of Americans with health insurance increased: 82.5 percent of nonelderly Americans (under age 65) were covered by some form of health insurance, up from 81.6 percent in 1998. (ebri.org)
  • The percentage of nonelderly Americans without health insurance coverage declined from 18.4 percent in 1998 to 17.5 percent in 1999. (ebri.org)
  • Between 1998 and 1999, the percentage of nonelderly Americans covered by employment-based health insurance increased from 64.9 percent to 65.8 percent, continuing a longer-term trend that started between 1993 and 1994. (ebri.org)
  • In 1999, 34.1 million Americans received health insurance from public programs, and an additional 15.8 million purchased it directly from an insurer. (ebri.org)

  • 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. (pacificu.edu)
  • Students
  • Importance to Occupational Science: A key outcome of this educational exchange has been its translation into interdisciplinary research conducted by graduate students that was co-supervised by public health and occupational scholars from both countries. (pacificu.edu)
  • Exposure to the various aspects of this partnership has contributed to new knowledge that can better prepare future researchers and practitioners for working in diverse settings, and may, as suggested by Zemke (2016), inspire students to link across disciplines to address social issues of relevance to occupation, health and well-being.
