  • Note from the Editor
    • Abstract: Welcome to the May 2018 issue of JHCPU, which ranges widely in locale, populations, and conditions studied, yet strongly affirms several unifying ideas.First, we continue to hear the drumbeat that signals the importance of the work conducted by JHCPU authors: health inequities persist or are newly recognized. Among them:Disparities among social groups associated with HIV have reached catastrophic proportions, with particularly ill effects for people of African descent. Kerr and colleagues examine the role of HIV-related stigma among African Diasporic youth in a mid-sized city in Ontario.The local environment affects health in numerous ways, and for people who are homeless, the street itself carries (animal and ...

  • A Community Health Center Blueprint for Responding to the Needs of the
           Displaced after a Natural Disaster: The Hurricane Maria Experience
    • Abstract: Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) serve as the health care delivery sites for more than 25 million Americans across the United States, including Puerto Rico and territories.1 Federally qualified health centers have been shown to provide higher quality of care at lower cost, per patient, compared with private practitioner offices.2,3 Despite the prevalence of FQHCs and the high-value care provided, many community health centers have extremely small operating margins4 and experience clinical vacancies as a regular occurence.5 This background presents challenges when an FQHC is tasked with quickly responding to the health care needs of people who are victims of a natural disaster.This ACU column focuses on a ...

  • Integration of an Oral Health Team into a Student-Faculty Collaborative
           Clinic: Successes and Challenges
    • Abstract: Untreated dental disease leads to disproportionate morbidity and time away from work and school for vulnerable populations.1,2 Poor oral health has been linked to numerous health complications, including low birthweight, poorer diabetic control, malnutrition, and systemic infection.3 People without access to dental care are often forced to seek palliative treatment in emergency departments, burdening the health care system almost $1 billion annually, and people with chronic illness who do not see a dentist may have higher overall health care costs.4,5 Individuals at high risk of dental disease are more likely to visit a physician than a dentist over the course of a year.6 Formal systems of referral from physicians ...

  • A Community Health Worker-Led Rotation to Train Medical Students in the
           Social Determinants of Health
    • Abstract: Medical students are often inadequately trained in the sociocultural, systemic, and policy factors that influence health outcomes, particularly among low-income populations.1,2 Policymakers have recognized the need to address these educational deficiencies; the Institute of Medicine,3 the Association of American Medical Colleges4 and the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education5 have recommended that medical training encompass cultural humility and community engagement. Cultural humility is defined as "having an interpersonal stance that is other-oriented rather than self-focused, characterized by respect and lack of superiority toward an individual's cultural background and experience."6[p.353]Several ...

  • A Cooperative Education Model for Promoting Oral Health and Primary Care
           Integration within a Health Care for the Homeless Program
    • Abstract: Lack of access to oral health care in the United States (U.S.) contributes to significant health disparities between the general population and vulnerable, underserved populations.1,2 A high burden of oral diseases, including periodontal disease, caries, and tooth loss persists among homeless populations.3 For homeless individuals and families, access to oral health care and routine oral hygiene practices can be particularly challenging.4 Barriers to oral health care for underserved populations include limited financial resources, low health literacy, and inadequate transportation.5 Further, homeless people often lack dental coverage or know where to seek dental care if needed.6 For homeless adults, access to ...

  • Initiating Dialogue in Community-Partnered Participatory Research to
           Address Obesity in South Los Angeles
    • Abstract: Significant work is needed to translate federally-funded biomedical research discoveries into broader public health impact. In 2003, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced development of the NIH Roadmap for Medical Science,1 then implemented the Roadmap theme of "Re-engineering the Clinical Research Enterprise" by initiating the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs)2 in 2006. The CTSAs required a team science approach that would span investigators in the continuum of biomedical science from bench to bedside to the community. Community-engaged research3 was determined to be an essential component of team science to ensure that biomedical research findings and products are acceptable and meet ... Read More

  • Rapid Assessment for Establishing Evidence of an Underground Cigarette
           Market in Oakland Chinatown: A Dual Approach
    • Abstract: Underground cigarette markets undermine public health efforts aimed at eliminating smoking and smoking-related health disparities by increasing access to lower-cost cigarettes for smokers and youth.1,2 Low-income, disadvantaged minority communities that disproportionately bear the burden of tobacco-related consequences and suffer from inadequate resources for quitting—such as ethnic enclaves—are especially affected by an illegal market in untaxed cigarettes.3 Ethnic enclaves are neighborhoods with high concentrations of an ethnic group, and serve as ports-of-entry for immigrants to the United States.

  • Testimonios, A Mental Health Support Group for Latino Immigrants in an
           Emergent Latino Community
    • Abstract: Latinos are the fastest growing demographic group in the U.S. and the largest racial/ethnic minority group. According to the 2015 U.S. Census, 56.6 million people, or 17.6% of the total population, identify as Hispanic or Latino.1 Mexicans constitute the largest group as of 2013 (64.1%),2 and in recent years there has been an unprecedented number of immigrants from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras (the Northern Triangle region).3 Latino immigrants have historically moved to border states or ports of entry, such as California, Texas, and Florida. These areas have large well-established Latino communities and strong social support networks for newly arrived immigrants. In the last two decades, however, the wide ... Read More

  • Street-Connected Youth: A Priority for Global HIV Prevention
    • Abstract: Never before has there been as much recognition of the possibility of an AIDS-free generation worldwide.1,2 However, an AIDS-free generation is not possible without addressing youth vulnerability globally. Adolescents and young people experience high levels of vulnerability and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) risk. At no point in our collective history has the world been home to as many adolescents as it is now. Approximately 1.2 billion adolescents are currently living and growing up, predominately in developing countries.3 The growth in adolescent populations requires a shifting of attention toward sexual and reproductive health, substance misuse, and mental health, all of which typically emerge during ...

  • Undocumented Latino Immigrants and Research: New Challenges in Changing
           Times
    • Abstract: The National Institutes of Health (NIH) requires that women and members of racial/ethnic minority groups be included in clinical research, a mandate codified in the NIH Revitalization Act of 1993 (PL 103-43).1 Generally, researchers consider inclusion of a diverse range of study participants to be critical to ensure that the study sample is representative of the population of interest and to enable the examination of important differences that might exist between groups, among other reasons.Latinos represented 17.6% of the United States population in 2016, making them a particularly important population for inclusion in research.2 Much prior work has described challenges of and best practices for research with ...

  • Perceived Neighborhood Quality and HIV-related Stigma among African
           Diasporic Youth; Results from the African, Caribbean, and Black Youth
           (ACBY) Study
    • Abstract: Understanding and addressing stigma among African Diasporic communities is imperative given their high HIV prevalence and stark racial/ethnic HIV disparities. Endemic HIV prevalence in several African and Caribbean nations is well-established and HIV disparities are an unremitting public health challenge in North America.1,5 For example, HIV rates among Black men and women in the U.S. range from approximately 7 to 19 times higher than White men and women respectively.4 An estimated one in 20 African American men are expected to be diagnosed with HIV compared with one in 132 White men.5 HIV rates among African, Caribbean, and Black (ACB) people in Ontario, Canada are 4.5 times higher than the general population and ...

  • Self-reported Animal and Ectoparasite Exposure among Urban Homeless People
    • Abstract: More than half a million people in the United States experience homelessness each year, and the majority reside in urban areas.1 While HIV, hepatitis C, and tuberculosis among homeless individuals are well-established infectious disease concerns in the United States,2 research into other infections experienced by this population, including zoonotic and vector-borne infections, remains very limited. In particular, the nature and frequency of contact between homeless people and animal hosts and insect vectors of disease in the urban environment is understudied.Exposure to rodent-borne infections are of particular concern for people experiencing homelessness.3 Urban rodents are known to carry pathogens harmful to ...

  • Using Enhanced Primary Care Services in High-risk Latino Populations to
           Reduce Disparities in Glycemic Control
    • Abstract: Racial and ethnic disparities in diabetes-related illness are well documented in the United States, and have been shown to affect U.S. Latino populations particularly.1 –3 Like many other racial/ethnic minority groups in the U.S., Latino Americans share a disproportionate burden of this disease, with an estimated diabetes prevalence nearly twice the national average (16.9% vs. 9.3%).4,5 Poorly controlled diabetes, as measured by hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c, a measure of glycemic control over the preceding two to three months), is also more common among U.S. Latinos relative to non-Hispanic Whites.6 As a result, Latino Americans are more likely to develop diabetes-related vascular complications (i.e., retinopathy ...

  • Access to Prenatal Care for Pregnant Refugee Women in Toronto, Ontario,
           Canada: An Audit Study
    • Abstract: In Canada, refugees are considered a highly vulnerable population.1 Compared with their Canada-born counterparts, immigrant and refugee populations encounter barriers to accessing primary health care services.2 Historically, the Canadian Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) has provided temporary full health care coverage to eligible protected persons, refugee claimants, and others not covered by provincial or territorial health insurance.3 In June 2012 the Canadian federal government changed the IFHP for the first time in 50 years.3 The IFHP changes divided refugees into multiple categories of eligibility for services such as drug coverage, in hospital care, emergency care, and primary care4 (Box 1). These ... Read More

  • The Effect of a Student-Run Free Clinic on Hospital Utilization
    • Abstract: In 2014, Smith et al. reported that 86 United States medical schools operated 208 student-run free clinics (SRFCs).1 These clinics serve uninsured patients and offer unique educational, clinical, and leadership opportunities for students.2 –3 While SRFCs have achieved outcomes comparable to those of traditional clinics, especially in managing chronic conditions, the impact of SRFCs on hospital utilization has not been characterized.4–8Uninsured patients often visit emergency departments and are hospitalized due to limited access to primary care services.9 –10 Much of this care is uncompensated and places pressure on academic medical centers (AMCs) to balance financial limitations with a mission to serve surrounding ...

  • Distributional Differences between Family Physicians and General
           Internists
    • Abstract: Overlaps in scope of practice among primary care physicians have been documented. For instance, 82% of practitioners of family medicine report practicing internal medicine; 65% of family physicians report providing care for children.1 However, family physician scope of practice appears to be contracting, prompting further studies on how this change could affect access to quality health care.2 –7Although differences between family physicians and general internists have been studied in terms of outcomes, cost of care, and communication styles,8 –13 there have been few studies of differences in geographic distribution between these two major primary care specialties. Since physician workforce shortages and ... Read More

    • Abstract: Despite effective screening tests for colorectal cancer (CRC), American Indians (AI) suffer from higher rates of diagnosis at late cancer stages and mortality compared with White populations.1 Furthermore, AIs are the only racial or ethnic group in the US who have not experienced a significant decrease in CRC incidence and mortality over the past 10 years.1,2 Colorectal cancer incidence and mortality is higher among AI in the Western regions of the U.S. and Alaska.1 Although rates are lower, it remains a leading cause of cancer and cancer death for AI in Eastern U.S. states such as North Carolina.3 There is growing evidence of effective CRC screening interventions for most populations,4 but little research has ...

  • Predictors of Willingness to Participate in Biospecimen Donation and
           Biobanking among Appalachian Adults
    • Abstract: Recognizing that biospecimens are necessary for continued advancement of biomedical research, in 2006, the National Cancer Institute began an initiative called the Biospecimen Research for Molecular Medicine.1 The major goal of this initiative was to develop innovative approaches to control, monitor, and assess biospecimen quality.1 Since initiation, evidence-based practices for processing of biospecimens have been published.2 However, effective biospecimen processing is only possible if individuals are first willing to donate specimens for research purposes. The willingness of special populations (e.g., groups consistently underrepresented in biomedical research, including racial/ethnic minorities and the ... Read More

  • How are States Measuring It': National Survey Findings on State Access
           Monitoring Efforts for Fee-for-Service Medicaid Enrollees
    • Abstract: More than 70 million people receive health care or long-term services and support through state Medicaid programs. Of those, approximately 16 million receive some or all of those services in the Medicaid Fee-for-Service (FFS) system.1Barriers to access have been a significant concern in the Medicaid program for many years. For Medicaid enrollees, these barriers prevent access to lower-cost care such as preventive services or primary care. In turn, research indicates that these patients tend to seek more costly care such as through the emergency room, or to delay seeking care, which contributes to poor health outcomes.2 Under FFS Medicaid, states set the rates that they will pay providers for each service provided. ...

  • Racial Disparities in PAD-Related Amputation Rates among Native Americans
           and non-Hispanic Whites: An HCUP Analysis
    • Abstract: Racial and ethnic disparities in health care have been documented in a variety of contexts. Addressing such disparities is a major policy focus. The Department of Health and Human Services' Healthy People 2020 document made this clear, with their stated objectives to "achieve health equity, eliminate disparities, and improve the health of all groups."1 [p.1] Yet, as documented in the 2014 National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report, significant disparities remain in many areas of health care access, quality, and outcomes, including measures of chronic disease management.2Health care disparities research seeks to identify and eliminate differential care that adversely affects access, quality, and patient ...

  • Medical Respite for People Experiencing Homelessness: Financial Impacts
           with Alternative Levels of Medicaid Coverage
    • Abstract: Homelessness increases use of inpatient and emergency department (ED) care. People experiencing homelessness have high readmission rates: 30-day ED revisit rates are 5.7 times higher, and 30-day inpatient readmission rates are 1.9 times higher than those of their housed counterparts.1 These patients also stay in the hospital longer than their housed counterparts. Patients in New York City experiencing homelessness stayed 4.1 days (36%) longer and cost an average of $4,094 more than their housed counterparts, adjusted for case mix, demographic characteristics, and socioeconomic characteristics.2 A Toronto study using administrative data found that admissions of patients experiencing homelessness on average cost ...

  • Social and Behavioral Factors in Sickle Cell Disease: Employment Predicts
           Decreased Health Care Utilization
    • Abstract: The most common genetic hematological disorder in the United States is sickle cell disease (SCD).1 Due to the frequency and difficulty of treating acute painful episodes known as vaso-occlusive crises (VOCs),2 it is not uncommon for people with SCD to have numerous emergency department (ED) visits, hospital admissions, and hospital readmissions. Despite being a rare disease—affecting approximately 100,000 individuals in the United States—patients with SCD accounted for 1.6 million ED visits (197,000 p/year) between 1997 and 2007.3 Of all these ED visits, VOCs accounted for approximately 64.2%.4 In 2010 the highest 30-day readmission rate of any acute and chronic condition was SCD (31.9% of all readmissions) ...
