  • Introduction
    • Abstract: The manuscripts in this Supplemental Issue of the Journal of Health Care for the Poor and the Underserved are from the Second Conference on Bioethics Issues in Minority Health and Health Disparities Research hosted by Tuskegee University at the Auburn Marriott Opelika Hotel and Conference Center, Opelika, Alabama, from January 23–25th, 2019. The conference theme was "Effective Health Care and Inclusion: Growing the Next Generation of Researchers for Bioethics, Behavioral, and Health Disparities Research." This conference was based on our belief that: (1) scholars ethically working to reduce cancer health disparities must be celebrated, (2) they must be given space to pass on enabling tools to the next generation of ...

  • Paying Tribute to Henrietta Lacks at Tuskegee University and at The
           Virginia Henrietta Lacks Commission, Richmond, Virginia
    • Abstract: Laypeople may be unfamiliar with Henrietta Lacks, but most scientists in the fields of human biology and medicine recognize Lacks and have encountered her "HeLa" cell line in biology laboratories and biomedical research.1,2,3 Her story illustrates how intentions in the name of scientific and medical advancement can have unanticipated consequences such as privacy violations and consent breaches.4 In today's human subjects and big data research landscape, the story has also brought to the limelight many bioethical issues worth considering. Such issues include, but are not limited to, obtaining informed consent prior to using tissues from clinical sources if individually identifiable, the need for education of ... Read More

  • Community-Engaged Approaches to Address the Ethical Concerns of Maternal
           Mental Health Disparities Research
    • Abstract: Historically, it is undeniable that some researchers in the United States engaged in unethical research practices involving low-income and racial/ethnic minority communities. In a different but related vein, we note that much public health and biomedical research has failed to involve participants from the communities where it occurs in meaningful ways.1 Both these broad facts have contributed to a negative perception of research in many low-income and racial/ethnic minority communities.2 Low-income and racial/ethnic minority communities are regularly asked by researchers to give consent to research that is conducted in and about their communities; however, they are rarely invited to provide meaningful input about ...

  • Changing the Conversation about The Ethics of Genomics and Health
           Disparities Research with American Indian and Alaska Native Communities: A
           Report from the Field
    • Abstract: The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently reiterated its commitment "to fund, conduct, and encourage diversity in biomedical research to build a strong foundation for genomic medicine."1[p.181] This renewed commitment is, in part, a response to recent findings that genomic research databases are lacking in representation from diverse populations,2 which hinders their utility in genomic research on health disparities across these populations. Although it is widely acknowledged that social, economic, cultural, and political factors are determinants of health disparities, there is increasing recognition that health outcomes are the product of complex ...

  • Utilizing Community-based Participatory Research Principles in a
           Safety-Net Hospital to Develop a Research Partnership
    • Abstract: Past unethical and intentional medical and research practices that were performed on minority populations continue to have salient effects on the receipt of timely health care and participation of minorities in research, particularly among African Americans.1 These unethical occurrences have been linked to distrust among minorities about the intent of medical studies.2 However, minorities who visit safety-net hospitals perceive the care they receive as patient-centered, of quality, and trustworthy, and describe the hospitals as institutions that understand the community.3,4Safety-net hospitals (SNHs), also known as community health centers, specialize in care for patients with multiple comorbid conditions, and ...

           Activism, and Policy Implications)
    • Abstract: The All of Us Research Program is designed to bring together one million or more volunteers from across the United States to donate their health information for research. The mission of All of Us is simple but bold: to accelerate health research and medical breakthroughs, enabling individualized prevention, treatment, and care for all. The aim is to create a new model of research based on collaboration among researchers, providers, community and provider organizations, and participants, which requires nurturing those relationships. We will deliver a repository of data that will be accessible to researchers. Finally, we will catalyze a robust ecosystem of researchers and funders ready to use and support it.All of Us ...

  • Identifying and Overcoming Roadblocks that Limit the Translation of
           Research Findings to the Achievement of Health Equity
    • Abstract: Almost 20 years ago, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) developed the Clinical Research Roundtable to evaluate and improve the translation of basic biomedical discovery to improvements in health of the general population.1 The committee identified two major roadblocks to translation. There was recognition that people suffering significant inequities in health would be less likely to benefit from these translations of basic discovery in the absence of specific efforts to ensure that they would.2 There have been considerable efforts made to overcome those obstacles in an effort to improve the health of the U.S. population, but inequities in health remain.3,4 Moreover, many of the advances in basic discovery that have ...

  • Vulnerability in Law and Bioethics
    • Abstract: Both law and bioethics are disciplines concerned with establishing principles, norms, and values to govern those subjects and situations within their jurisdictions. The rules that emerge from discussions about necessary ethical principles must be considered just and must also clearly define appropriate institutional practices and individual behavior.The primary subject of both law and bioethics is the human being. Although the social and professional roles of the lawyer (and/or legislator and judge) and the bioethicist differ, both professions are concerned with human beings and the societies in which they live. Therefore, the fundamental question for these disciplines must be: "What does it mean to be human'" This ... Read More

  • An American Indian Patient Experience
    • Abstract: American Indian women in the Southwest United States experience higher ovarian cancer mortality rates compared to White women.1 High rates of overall cancer mortality and morbidity are attributed to delays and obstacles in seeking and receiving cancer screening or care.2,3 This commentary highlights several recommendations based on an American Indian ovarian cancer patient's experience during treatment and end-of-life care with the goal of improving care for other American Indian cancer patients.On September 14, 2018, our mother, a 77-year-old American Indian woman, lost her battle with ovarian cancer. Our mother, like many other American Indians, had multiple comorbidities including anemia, congestive heart ... Read More

  • Issues in the Use of Human Tissues to Support Precision Medicine
    • Abstract: What constitutes precision medicine and why is precision medicine important to minority populations' Based on the National Research Council Committee on a Framework for Developing a New Taxonomy of Disease—Toward Precision Medicine: Building a Knowledge Network for Biomedical Research and a New Taxonomy of Disease, precision medicine is an approach to provide medical care to individuals based on their characteristics as well as the characteristics of their disease so treatments can be optimized to individual patients or subpopulations of patients.1 This approach saves time and resources, and also minimizes complications of exposing patients to therapies that are not optimal for the patient's molecular ...

  • Translational Research—For the Individual and the Community
    • Abstract: Advances in translational research from mechanisms of human biology through environmental modifiers of phenotype and then to application to human disease present exciting opportunities for improvement of health. Focusing on the individual within the medical model of disease, innovative treatment strategies for cancer now include specific enzyme inhibitors, immunotherapy with genetically engineered immune system cells obtained from patients, and immunotherapy with targeted monoclonal antibodies for selected patients whose tumors display the appropriate targets reacting with those antibodies. Characterization of cancer tumor genetics of patients has enabled development of individualized treatments that promise ... Read More

  • Breaking the Cycle of Health Inequities: The Bioethics of Data
    • Abstract: Two identical twins are born in a loving household, with the same circumstances. They grow up, get a decent education, marry, and settle down in different neighborhoods. One twin moves to an affluent neighborhood, with thriving fresh markets, excellent schools, and highly walkable and safe spaces. The other twin moves to a neighborhood with attributes opposite to her sister's: economically disadvantaged, with limited access to healthy foods, deteriorating schools, unwalkable, unsafe spaces. Mid-life, both sisters are diagnosed with breast cancer, of the same subtype and stage. Will they respond similarly to their breast cancer treatment regimen'While there are numerous factors to take into account when attempting ... Read More

  • Framework for Ethical Community Engagement (ECE) with Underserved
           Populations in the Rural South: A Help for Bioethics and Healthcare
           Promotion
    • Abstract: In the United States, the association between population health, the quality of health care received, and status in society is a disheartening reality.1 Furthermore, for vulnerable populations that suffer from persistently poor health outcomes, personal responsibility is often cited as the basis for the challenges they face.2 However, Dayna Bowen Matthew argues that the behaviors often blamed for their health disparities have a context that includes, "exposure to the stress of discrimination, … food insecurity, and neighborhood condition—where the built environment is not conducive to promoting healthy lifestyles."2 Matthew provides evidence substantiating that "racial and ethnic differences in health treatment and ...

  • Racial Anxiety among Medical Residents: Institutional Implications of
           Social Accountability
    • Abstract: Some ethnic/racial populations have been shown to have poorer health outcomes than non-Hispanic Whites in the United States.1 The attitudes and behaviors of health care providers have been identified as one factor that contributes to health disparities.2–4 Research is now focused upon better characterization of health care providers' attitudes and behaviors as well as possible mechanisms to increase cultural competency knowledge, awareness, and skill sets of health providers, particularly physicians.5–7As the United States becomes more ethnically diverse, physicians are also interacting with a more diverse patient population. Their ability to address cultural variabilityFigure 1Drivers of racial anxiety. ... Read More

  • Ethical Challenges and Lessons Learned from Qualitative Research with
           Low-Income African American Women Living with HIV in the South
    • Abstract: African American women in the U.S. South experience disparate HIV-related health outcomes, compared with their counterparts in other areas.1 Among women in the region, African Americans account for a substantially greater proportion of HIV diagnoses than other racial/ethnic groups.2 Once diagnosed with HIV, African American women are also less likely than White women to achieve viral suppression.3 Various contextual circumstances underlie the susceptibility of African American women in the U.S. South to these health outcomes.4,5 For marginalized populations, social and structural inequities are implicated in amplifying the risk for HIV.2,6–8The HIV-related health disadvantages faced by African American women in the ...

  • Describing Vulnerability and Resiliency through Photovoice: Generational
           Perspectives from the Mississippi Gulf Coast Vietnamese Community
    • Abstract: Asian Americans are individuals having origins in the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent. According to 2014 U.S. Census estimates, there are 28,067 (±935) individuals who describe themselves as Asians living in Mississippi. Asians constitute less than 1% of the total population in Mississippi, and 5.4% of the U.S. population.1 According to the Migration Policy Institute tabulation of US Census Bureau, from 2011 to 2015, an estimated 8,500 Vietnamese Americans lived in the lower Mississippi Gulf Coast counties of Jackson, Harrison and Hancock.2 Of these, 80% (6,800) were directly employed in, or are highly dependent upon, the commercialfishing industry. Other occupations of South Mississippi ... Read More

  • Food Insecurity and Maternal Mental Health among African American Single
           Mothers Living with HIV/AIDS in the Alabama Black Belt
    • Abstract: Food insecurity is a threat to public health and affects millions of HIV-positive individuals.1,2,3,4-6 African American and Hispanic households are more likely than White households to be food-insecure, and rural African Americans are an especially vulnerable group. In general, households that are at higher risk of being unable to secure adequate amounts of food because of financial constraints are those headed by single women, and many are African American.7,8 As determined in 2016, the rural South in general, and Alabama in particular, experience a higher prevalence of food insecurity and hunger compared to the national average.7 Food insecurity undoubtedly is a growing and persistent social problem that ...
