  • Note from the Editor
    • Abstract: To our Readers: I write this as the world is in lock-down as a result of the COVID19 pandemic. During this extraordinary period in modern history, the government, public health and health care professionals, the media, and finally the public have witnessed on a large scale in the United States the sequelae of the health inequities we cover in every issue. In this case, we see especially clearly how much the health and socioeconomic inequities that have plagued African American, Latino, and American Indian populations for generations lead in an unbroken line to catastrophic morbidity and to death for people in these groups at rates that far outstrip those of their non-Hispanic White counterparts. The lead Commentary ... Read More

  • The African American Petri Dish
    • Abstract: As 2019 drew to a close and the world celebrated the new year, a highly contagious and lethal virus had developed through animal to human transmission. Called the novel coronavirus, the resulting condition was known first as COVID-19 and later as SARS-CoV-2* (in view of its genetic relationship to the SARS-1 virus that had spread in some parts of the world in 2003, affecting 26 countries and resulting in 8,000 cases and 774 deaths). The novel coronavirus was destined to spread much further than SARS-1. The National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI) in the United States first alerted the White House and Pentagon of the virus and its catastrophic potential in November in 2019.1 U.S. intelligence agencies ...

  • Strengthening the U. S. Medication Safety Net by Connecting Abundance to
           Need
    • Abstract: Cost-related medication non-adherence (CRN) is a major population health concern in the United States (U.S.).1–3 Dimensions of CRN include not filling a prescription, delaying filling a prescription, taking less medicine than prescribed, or skipping medication doses due to cost concerns.3 The prevalence of CRN has been estimated to be as high as 23% among adults in the U.S.2 Americans with limited or no prescription coverage have considerable challenges with medication access and CRN among uninsured working-age adults is nearly double the rate among the general adult population.2 Cost related medication non-adherence impedes chronic illness care, complicates or exacerbates disease states, and increases unnecessary ...

  • Harm Reduction 'On the Move': What Is the Role of Environmental

    • Abstract: Harm-reduction services can, and do, help to ensure safer substance use practices and thus reduce risks of HIV and Hepatitis C.1–6 Mobile harm reduction ser-vices are not new,7–9 but there is a significant interest in mobile harm reduction as a strategy for getting services to people who use substances (PWUS) particularly those highly marginalized due to economic and social circumstances. Mobile harm reduction includes the movement of facilities, supplies, and other supports as well as harm reduction workers or peers to the spaces and places where there are PWUS.In this commentary we point to various ways that different types of environments, and specifically economic, social, legal, and physical environments ...

    • Abstract: Obesity and related diseases are among the most prevalent and expensive conditions in the United States (US). Approximately 40% of the U.S. adult population can be classified as having obesity1 and obesity is associated with comorbid conditions, including type 2 diabetes (T2D), hypertension, and stroke.2 Almost 10 percent of the US population is affected by T2D,3,4 and both obesity and T2D rates are expected to increase in the future, potentially reaching 44% and 31% respectively, by 2030.2,4 Individuals with obesity and T2D have higher medical costs and these costs are expected to rise 20% in the future.2,4 Obesity and related diseases are characterized by disparities among medically-underserved populations such ...

  • Raising Wages for a Hospital's Unsung Heroes
    • Abstract: It's twelve o'clock and the lunch line runs out the door. For an hour or so, the cafeteria becomes a microcosm of the hospital, bustling with patients, doctors, nurses, and administrators. Most chat with their colleagues and make sure to smile and say hello to a passing doctor or patient they recognize. Yet few take note of the cafeteria or custodial staff quietly laboring away.I have shadowed physicians, volunteered, and conducted research at the University of Pittsburgh Hillman Cancer Center and its adjacent hospital for over five years. In this time, I have gotten to know many of the critical staff who often go overlooked among the Brownian motion of shuffling feet and rolling carts. I've realized that the ... Read More

  • The National Health Service Corps at 50: A Legacy of Impact in Partnership
           with The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved
    • Abstract: The year 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the legislation that created the National Health Service Corps (NHSC). Congress created the National Health Service Corps with passage of the Emergency Health Personnel Act of 1970 (P.L. 91-623) on December 31, 19701 and in 1972 the first NHSC-sponsored clinicians provided ser-vices in the field.The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU)—formed by current and former NHSC recipients—has served as an important advocacy, policy, and clinicallyoriented professional organization since 1996. Shared membership, commitment to the underserved, and a sense of a common mission have inextricably linked the NHSC and ACU for nearly 25 years.The original intent of the NHSC ... Read More

Being in the hospital for extended periods of time can be a challenge for anyone, however it can be even more daunting when patients lack a support system or have limited interactions outside the realm of their health care team. Additionally, physicians, nurses, and health professionals alike are often busy and stretched thin, tending to a large number of patients, providing quality medical care. As a result, it can be challenging for the treatment care team to also tend to the ... Read More

  • A Community-Oriented Approach to Questionnaire Development for Assessment
           of Oral Cancer Awareness Among Hispanic Migrant Farmworkers
    • Abstract: Oral cancer (OC) includes cancer of the lips, gingiva, oral tongue, floor of mouth, buccal mucosa, hard palate, and retromolar trigone. Worldwide, OC accounts for 2%–4% of all cancer cases. Ninety percent (90%) of OCs are squamous cell carcinomas.1 Despite advances of therapeutic approaches, the morbidity and mortality of OC have not improved significantly during the last 30 years. According to the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results database, the five-year relative survival rate for oral and oropharyngeal malignancies is 83.7%, 65%, and 39.1% for local, regional, and metastatic disease, respectively.2 Sixty-seven percent (67%) of patients diagnosed with OC cases have regional or distant disease.

Social determinants of health consist of overlapping social structures that shape the distribution of power and resources in communities and, thus, drive health inequity.3 Stable housing,4 safe neighborhoods,5 number of green spaces,6 amount of wealth,7 and stable employment8 have all been tied to better physical and mental health ...

The population of Mexico has aged at an accelerating rate in recent decades. In 2000, people 60 years of age and older accounted for 6.9% of the total population; by 2015, this figure had risen to 7.2%.1 The aging index has also shown a marked increase: in 2010 there were 30.9 older adults (OAs) for every 100 young people, but the number increased to 38 by 2015. By 2050, it is estimated that OAs will account for over 22% of the Mexican population, with the life expectancy for women rising from 77.4 to 81.6 years and for men from 71.7 ... Read More
