  • Note from the Editor
    • Abstract: The papers here cover a broad range of topics, health care targets, and methodologies. Still, they share a common motivation, that of intervention. Each paper addresses this concern differently. Some, like Crenshaw and colleagues, address knowledge gaps and provide valuable baseline data for underserved areas, identifying effective health care targets for future intervention. Others chart some of the ramifications of linguistic diversity among patients. Zhang and colleagues, for example, examine the effects of limited English proficiency on medication-related self-efficacy among patients, while Scales discusses how cultural and personal communication styles, regardless of any language barrier, affect ...

  • Receipt of Prenatal Counseling among Health Center Patients
    • Abstract: Federally supported health centers (HCs) are funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to provide access to quality primary and preventive care to the nation's medically underserved areas and vulnerable populations. In 2016, 1,367 HCs served 25.9 million patients, 92% of whom were at or below 200% of the federal poverty level (FPL), 50% of whom were Medicaid/CHIP insured, and 23% of whom were uninsured.1 In addition, 7.7 million patients (30%) were females of reproductive age (15–49 years).2 About 75% of HCs provided direct prenatal care to about 560,000 women.3Preventive care during pregnancy, including screening and primary care ...

  • The Affordable Care Act and Changes in Insurance Coverage and Source of

           Transitioning to the Community
    • Abstract: Since the creation of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965, no single piece of health care legislation has succeeded in raising health care coverage rates as significantly as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), signed into law on March 23, 2010.1 For individuals purchasing coverage, the most tangible changes were effected through states' optional expansion of Medicaid and the creation of federal or state marketplaces through which health care coverage plans could be compared and purchased.2 In the 31 states that have elected to expand Medicaid coverage as of July 2016, individuals with incomes less than 138% of the federal poverty level are now eligible for public insurance.1 In all states, low-income ...

  • Intimate Partner Violence and Women's Health-seeking Behaviors in
           Northwestern Botswana
    • Abstract: Health service utilization among vulnerable populations is important to consider when developing health care programs. Globally, many factors have been identified that create and/or exacerbate barriers in health service utilization among the general population, including distance to health services, lack of transportation, and lack of finances.1,2 Additional factors affect the utilization of health care services among vulnerable populations, including recent victimization, mental health status, substance abuse, and the existence of competing needs.3 Such socio-behavioral factors are of particular concern with respect to health services utilization in that they may affect health-seeking behaviors. Higher utilization ... Read More

  • We Should Know Ourselves: Burmese and Bhutanese Refugee Women's
           Perspectives on Cervical Cancer Screening
    • Abstract: Cervical cancer is one of the most common cancers among women worldwide and accounts for more than 266,000 deaths each year.1 In countries where there is access to effective methods to prevent and detect cervical cancer, such as the United States (U.S.), cervical cancer incidence and mortality rates have been decreasing.1–3 However, this is not the case in less developed countries where cervical cancer is endemic and there is limited access to preventive care.1,4–6 Most refugee groups in the U.S. emigrate from countries with high cervical cancer incidence rates, and have higher rates of cervical cancer morality than those born in the U.S.7–9 Research has also shown refugee women are unlikely to have been screened ...

  • Outcomes of a Community-based Breast Cancer Screening Program in Baltimore
           City
    • Abstract: Breast cancer (BC) is the second most common malignancy among American women. In 2017, an estimated 252,710 women were newly diagnosed with invasive BC; 63,410 women were diagnosed with carcinoma in situ, and 40,610 women died from BC.1 Screening mammography reduces BC mortality through early detection.1 Despite overall declines in BC mortality from screening mammography, significant disparities in mortality persist for African American women in comparison with White women. African American women, particularly those who have low incomes and are uninsured, have the highest BC mortality rates in the country. Breast cancer mortality in African American women is reported at rates up to 40% higher than the rates in ... Read More

  • Depression among Women Released from Prison or Jail in the United States
    • Abstract: Mental illnesses are among the most prevalent and undertreated diseases among prisoners and ex-prisoners.1,2 In a study by Steadman et al., roughly 15% of men and 31% of women admitted to jails reported current serious mental illness (within past month) and, in a 2006 report, nearly a quarter of state prisoners reported mental illness within the past year.3–5 Prevalence rates of depression are much higher among incarcerated people than among the general adult population in the U.S. In 2012, an estimated 6.9% of all adults in the United States had experienced at least one major depressive episode in the preceding year.6Existing research and policies surrounding health and health care of prisoners are centered on ...

  • Strategic partnerships for outreach and enrollment: Filling in insurance
           gaps for Florida's military children and families
    • Abstract: Currently, 9.8 million active duty and retired U.S. military personnel (20 or more years of service) and their families receive TRICARE health insurance through the Department of Defense.1 However, children of parents who were recently relieved from active service may experience a lapse in health coverage, and veterans are often unable to extend military benefits to their dependent children and grandchildren. These gaps result in 2.3 million veterans and their family members left uninsured. Furthermore, of the 1.8 million children in the U.S. military community, 14–17% are estimated to have a special health care need.2,3 As unemployment rates of veterans began increasing, peaking at 12.1% in 2011 for post-9/11 ...

  • Using Health Information Technology to Bring Social Determinants of Health
           into Primary Care: A Conceptual Framework to Guide Research
    • Abstract: Social determinants of health (SDH), the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age,1 profoundly impact the health of individuals and populations. A large body of scientific literature shows that SDH affect morbidity and mortality across the life course; some estimates suggest that up to 60% of preventable deaths are caused by modifiable SDH factors.2 Research also shows that SDH are critical drivers of persistent health inequities.Several recent national initiatives have called for increased efforts to integrate SDH into health care settings using health information technology (HIT).3–7 In 2014, a National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) panel of experts recommended ...

  • Using HIV Surveillance Data for Targeted, Community-based Hepatitis C
           Virus Testing among Baby Boomers in Washington, D.C.
    • Abstract: An estimated 2.7 to 3.9 million Americans are chronically infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV).1 In 2013, over 19,000 deaths were attributed to HCV and recently, deaths from HCV surpassed those attributed to HIV.1,2 HCV infection is the leading cause of cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma, and liver transplantation.3 Furthermore, only 50% of those infected are aware of their status, indicating an urgent need to increase HCV diagnosis.4,5 Washington, D.C. has a high burden of HCV infection, with 16,469 newly and previously reported cases between 2009–2013; however, this number may be significantly underestimated due to the lack of complete viral hepatitis surveillance data.6 To address and decrease the high ...

  • Mid-level Practitioners in Oral Health: Tennessee Dental Professional's
           Attitudes and Perceptions of the Dental Therapist Workforce Model
    • Abstract: In 2009 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) published Advancing Oral Health in America, outlining recommendations for advancing the oral health of the country and the role the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services could play.1 At that time, some 48 million U.S. residents lived in 4,091 Dental Health Professional Shortage Areas (DHPSAs).2,3 A primary theme of the 2009 IOM report was improving access to dental care, with a particular focus on the mid-level dental practitioner model. The term "mid-level provider" in dental practice can be ambiguous, and various authors have used this term differently to describe the entire array of non-dentist providers—from dental assistants, to dental hygienists, to newer models; ...

  • Communicating Against the Current
    • Abstract: David Foster Wallace, best known for his book Infinite Jest, gave a famous graduation speech at Kenyon College in 2005. At first, the speech may not seem remarkable. Wallace spoke about fish and grocery shopping and driving on the freeway and the purpose of a liberal arts education. The speech became famous because he suggested we empathize with the people around us. We can start by making ourselves less the center of attention and keeping our eyes open to context and our environment.Wallace started his speech with an anecdote:There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says "Morning, boys. How's the water'" And the two young fish ... Read More

  • Health Literacy Mediates Racial Disparities in Cardiopulmonary

  • Exploring Dietary Factors in the Food Insecurity and Obesity Relationship

    • Abstract: Food insecurity is defined as the state of being without relative access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.1 Food insecurity nationally has declined from 15% in 2011to 13% in 2015 but still remains higher than pre-recession levels in 2007 (11%).2 Certain racial and ethnic groups experience higher rates of food insecurity, particularly households headed by Latinos.3 Latinos experienced the highest increase in food insecurity during the recession compared with other racial groups (20% in 2007 versus 27% in 2008). While the prevalence has dropped from the 2008 peak, 22% of Latino households were food-insecure in 2014.4Food insecurity is an important driver of health disparities, not only because ... Read More

Unfortunately, many patients with HCC present with advanced disease at diagnosis and are not candidates for ... Read More

           Dental Therapists' Oral Health Care
    • Abstract: The introduction of a new health care professional has traditionally been controversial. One issue that is a part of that controversy is the question of acceptability of care provided by these new professionals. Treatment acceptability has been defined as "… judgments about the treatment procedures by nonprofessionals, lay persons, clients, and other potential consumers of treatment. Judgments of acceptability include whether treatment is appropriate for the problem, whether it is fair, reasonable, or intrusive, and whether it is consistent with conventional notions of what treatment should be."1pp.[329–330] The question of acceptability of care has been noted as it relates to nurse practitioners,2,3,4,5 physician ...

  • Racial/Ethnic Disparities in Failure to Initiate HIV Care: Role of HIV

           2014–2015
    • Abstract: In 2014, the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) mortality rate for non-Hispanic Blacks (NHBs) was eight and a half times that for non-Hispanic Whites (NHWs) in the United States (U.S.) (8.5 vs. 1.0 deaths per 100,000 population).1 Lower survival among NHBs living with HIV infection relative to NHWs has been noted in multiple studies.2–4 Early diagnosis and treatment with antiretroviral therapy among people living with HIV infection results in life expectancies similar to those of the general population.5,6 However, successful treatment depends on success of each stage of "engagement in HIV care," from diagnosis to viral suppression,7 including initiation of HIV care, which remains a challenge in the United States. ...
