  • The Year of Living and Dying Dangerously
    • Abstract: I write amidst waves of new coronavirus cases in the United States and the world during the Summer of 2020.As the COVID19 pandemic grew in March 2020 to an extent that made it undeniable, the nation soon came face-to-face with the fact that race and ethnicity (along with age) were central features of the virus's effects. The very short form of the story is that people of color (a term used here to encompass Black, Latino, and American Indian people in the U.S.) are at greatly elevated risk for morbidity and mortality from COVID19 relative to non-Hispanic Whites and Asians.*Here in the United States, the social upheaval associated with pandemic-related shutdowns was bookended by nationwide protests, vigils, and ...

  • Improving Hepatitis B Care in the US: A Case for a New "Ryan White"
           Program
    • Abstract: Chronic hepatitis B infection (CHB) affects an estimated 550,000 to 2 million people in the United States, and the majority are foreign-born.1 Asian Americans and Africans are disproportionately represented among the U.S. CHB population, reflecting the high prevalence of hepatitis B infection globally and migration of individuals to the U.S. from highly endemic countries. Chronic hepatitis B is a common cause of hepatocellular carcinoma and cirrhosis and is an under-recognized cause of early death.2 About one in 10 foreign-born Asian Americans have CHB. Further, Asian Americans are two times more likely to acquire hepatocellular carcinoma and two times more likely to die from liver cancer as a result of CHB ... Read More

  • Kidney Transplantation in Native Americans: Time to Explore, Expel
           Disparity
    • Abstract: Although incidence rates have slowed, the prevalence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the U.S. continues to increase, with diabetes mellitus (DM) being the most common etiology.1,2 The prevalence of DM in Native American/American Indian (NA/AI) people is more than double that of Whites and is higher than in any other racial/ethnic group, and is especially high among those who reside on Indian reservations.3 Consequently, the prevalence of ESRD in NA/AI people is nearly double that of Whites.1,3 Kidney transplantation (KT) is the ultimate treatment for ESRD markedly improving both quality of life and survival,4 but KT rate is dispro portionally low in NA/AI people. In 2016, the United States KT rate per 100 ... Read More

  • Suicide Safer Care: A Public Health Approach to Training Primary Care
           Providers in Addressing Suicide
    • Abstract: "Tragically, [the troubling decline in life expectancy over the last few years] is largely driven by deaths from drug overdose and suicide. Life expectancy gives us a snapshot of the nation's overall health, and these sobering statistics are a wakeup call that we are losing too many Americans, too early and too often, to conditions that are preventable."According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the CDC, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.2 In 2017, 47,173 people died by suicide in the U.S., and there were an estimated 1.4 million attempts.2 Suicide is one of three leading causes on the list that are on the rapid rise, as suicide rates have increased by almost 30% ...

  • An Innovative Model for Implementing Office-Based Opioid Treatment in
           Community-Based Settings
    • Abstract: Drug overdose deaths involving opioids continue to rise in the United States, with more than 47,000 individuals fatally overdosing in 2017.1 Yet most individuals with an opioid use disorder (OUD) are not receiving treatment in the substance use treatment system.2 To increase access to treatment for Medicaid members with opioid or other substance use disorders, the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) implemented the Addiction and Recovery Treatment Services (ARTS) program in April 2017.3 In the first nine months of ARTS, the percentage of Medicaid members with a substance abuse disorder (SUD) who received treatment increased from 24% to 38%, and members with OUD receiving pharmacotherapy ...

  • Caring for Underserved Patients with Heart Failure during the COVID-19
           Pandemic
    • Abstract: On March 6, 2020, Nursing Leadership at our institution had a Called Meeting to alert us of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Southeastern United States. By March 16, 2020, COVID-19 had changed our usual protocols and forever changed how we practice. Working at a clinic providing services to the underserved, our interprofessional team had decisions to make regarding best practice for this population.

  • Food Insecurity in Nashville, Davidson County
    • Abstract: Nutrition, and especially the lack of good nutrition, can have wide ranging effects on individuals' health and longevity. According to the Healthy Nashville 2017 data, Davidson County's high food insecurity rate ranks among the worst 25% of Tennessee counties and in the second worst quartile for all counties in the United States.1 Food insecurity has a long-term impact on health outcomes and health care costs, while disproportionately affecting low-income older adults, people of color and seniors residing in southern states.2 Children's food security in low-income households is affected by parental job opportunities, wage rates, and work supports (e.g., earned-income tax credits, child care subsidies, and ...

  • Body Mass Index Changes Associated with Smoking are Moderated by Race and

    • Abstract: Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., accounting for one in five deaths each year.1 Similarly, obesity is associated with several of the leading causes of death in the United States, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer.2 Smoking is associated with several of the same diseases as obesity, including heart disease and cancer.1 Almost 40% of adults in the U.S. are obese, with non-Hispanic Black people having the highest age-adjusted rates of obesity. This is especially true for non-Hispanic Black women among whom the prevalence of obesity is about 1.5 times the prevalence among non-Hispanic White women (while that of Black men is only marginally higher—1.08—than that of White ...

This is especially true among the developing countries and equally within the various regions or states in these countries. The role of location and socioeconomic status and program interventions has been documented in finding associations and correlations with reductions in infant and child mortality. The major contribution of this study is to document the disparities in infant and child mortality in Nigeria at the state level.United Nations Inter-agency Group for Child Mortality Estimation report on levels and trends in child mortality shows that ...

This human-centered approach is important for maintaining patients' independence, responsibility, and identity.3 The family's involvement in the management of a patient's health—for both chronic and episodic or acute conditions—is associated with reduced hospitalization rates, lower cost to the health system, reduced emergency department attendance and thus shorter wait times, and ...

Hepatitis B is a liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV).1 For some, hepatitis B is an acute, or short-term, illness; but for others, it can become a long-term, chronic infection. Approximately 240 million individuals worldwide are infected with chronic hepatitis B. When individuals are untreated, the condition can lead to liver failure and/or liver cancer.2Acute HBV infection rates among individuals born in the United States have decreased substantially since universal infant vaccination was implemented in 1991. Over the last four decades, however, immigration of people from HBV endemic regions such as Eastern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa ... Read More

Currently, the leading causes of mortality in both men and women in Nicaragua are ischemic heart disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and cerebrovascular disease.1,2,3,4 Hypertension is a chronic disease that can be easily diagnosed by a primary care provider. Most patients can be controlled with proper medications, leading to a significant reduction in mortality by reducing cardiovascular risk.5 In Nicaragua, however, there is limited research regarding the prevalence of hypertension and barriers to care, particularly in rural populations.

When disruptive behavior problems (e.g., aggression, rule-breaking, defiance, and cruelty) manifest in very young children, the risk of later antisocial behaviors—including substance abuse, school failure, and criminality—escalates significantly.1,2 Prevalence estimates of child behavior problems in the U.S. are increasing,3 with 20% of young children exhibiting sub-clinical to clinical symptoms. Fortunately, decades of research demonstrate the efficacy and effectiveness of behavioral parent training (BPT) interventions in reducing child behavior problems and their ... Read More
