  • Note from the Editor: Black History Month
    • Abstract: Every year, the Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved (JHCPU) opens its publication schedule with the Black History Month issue, and this year's opening issue is truly packed with papers bearing on the well-being of Black and other underserved populations.Meharry Medical College, the owner of JHCPU and the home of its editorial office, is a historically Black college/university (HBCU), founded in 1876. Meharry (along with it's the other HBCU medical and public health schools) provides an open door for students and researchers who have themselves experienced the effects of racial/ethnic health inequities to be trained as health professionals. The low representation of Black and other minority group ... Read More

  • Clinician Burnout and the Meaningful Connection of the ACU Community
    • Abstract: Much has been said recently regarding clinician burnout in health care. Whether it be the disengagement of front-line care givers, mental health status of care teams, or potentially the worst—suicide, which is higher among health care professions that most all others—burnout is a serious part of health care delivery today.While the topic of burnout is a nuanced and complex one, there are three key tenets that require all those caring for the underserved to focus on at present. The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved continues to address all of these!The concept of the triple aim in health care has shifted to the quadruple aim, which continues to encompass high quality care, low cost care and increased ...

  • Ernest Everett Just (1883–1941): Hero in Cell Biology and
           Evolutionary Bioethics
    • Abstract: Ernest Everett Just (born 1883, died 1941) taught biology in the Department of Zoology at Howard University in Washington D.C. from 1909 to 1941. Even though Just is seldom cited in biology textbooks, all of us have learned what Just first observed and described: when the fertilizing spermatozoon penetrates the egg cell surface, a "wave of negativity" radiates from the point of penetration sweeping around the egg cell surface, thereby repulsing all other sperm.1 During the 1920s and 1930s, Just was "the [original italics on the] current authority on fertilization" with a national and international reputation.2 [p.149] Just wrote more than 70 published research articles, and co-authored with Frank R. Lillie the ... Read More

  • Diversity and Inclusion: A Path to Greater Influence'
    • Abstract: Creating diverse and inclusive environments has become a high priority for academic health centers. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has championed this cause by providing a blueprint for creating a Chief Diversity Officer and facilitating conversations about diversity along numerous avenues. Over the span of my 14-year career in academic medicine, I have served as a minority affairs dean, a center co-director focused on recruitment and retention of underrepresented minorities in medicine, as well as a dean for diversity and inclusion. As I have transitioned through these roles, my experiences suggest diversity and inclusion offices deal largely with conflict, oftentimes associated with the ... Read More

  • Prevention Professional for Violence Intervention: A Newly Recognized
           Health Care Provider for Population Health Programs
    • Abstract: Sustainable funding for population health initiatives is often challenging. Although many interventions improve care quality or reduce long-term expenditures, start-up costs and delayed financial return remain barriers to implementation. Additionally, financial benefit might actually accrue to other health system sectors that did not deliver the service. In the absence of predictable reimbursement, programs often face funding uncertainty. To bridge the gap between existing program funding models and the traditional medical reimbursement system, a new type of health care provider has been developed: prevention professionals. This paper will discuss a brief history of the provider's origin, potential benefits to ... Read More

While untreated dental caries among African American children aged 5–19 years declined from 33.9% for the period 1988–1994 to 22.6% in 2005–2008, it remained relatively steady at 23.4% in 2011–2014.1 African American children living below 100% of the federal poverty level had higher rates of untreated caries (27.5–37.4%) than African American children living above the poverty level (19.3–31.2%) and these rates exceeded those (24.5–33.8%) of non-Hispanic White children at the same poverty level.1 Few studies of dental caries in primarily African American adolescent populations have ...

    • Abstract: The 2019 partial government shutdown created a 35-day gap in federal funding that affected an array of government functions. Most federal health programs were spared from the funding gap, including Medicare, Medicaid, and the Veterans Health Administration (VA); however, the Indian Health Service (IHS) was not.1 The IHS provides care to 2.56 million American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) enrolled in federally-recognized tribes and to urban-dwelling AI/ANs through its Urban Indian Health Program.2 Interruptions in funding for this population's health services are harmful and avoidable.The AI/AN population served by the IHS experiences a shorter life expectancy at birth than the nation's other racial or ethnic ...

Indeed, in a large national sample, physicians of color, though they make up a minority of the workforce, were responsible for caring for a majority of patients of color.3 Despite the increasingly recognized need for a diverse physician workforce, the proportion of applicants and medical school graduates from under-represented minorities—those who are Black or Latinx—has remained stagnant over the past few decades.4 Racial and ethnic diversity are not the only identity factors where lack of physician diversity may be affecting patient care.

Consequently, as much as 70% of PLWH in the United States will be aged 50 and over by the year 2020.4Older people living with HIV face complex ... Read More

In our recent past, camera-enabled mobile phones and social media have brought these previouslythought-to-be isolated events to broader recognition via mainstream news.1 From 2009 to 2012, the National Violent Death Reporting System—a state-based surveillance that pools together anonymous data on violent deaths—identified 812 on-duty, law enforcement-related fatalities,2 which may be an underestimation. In 2015, verified crowd-sourced data estimated more than 1,000 police-related fatalities. Academic and media sources agree that a disproportionate share of African ... Read More
