  • Health Policy Affects Health Outcomes: Community Determinants of Health
    • Abstract: The Gulf States Health Policy Center (GS-HPC) is a Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center supported by National Institutes of Health–National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities. It was established to educate local and academic leaders and build collaborations as a means to engage the community in conducting its own health policy research. The ultimate goal is to improve the health outcomes in the Gulf States (states bordering the Gulf of Mexico: AL, MS, LA, FL, and TX).Health outcomes are influenced by many determinants both within and outside of the traditional health system. For example, policies related to transportation, living wages, and zoning can dramatically impact health outcomes ... Read More

    • Abstract: The conceptual frameworks for understanding, intervening, and supporting children and adolescents in the aftermath of disasters include a perspective from developmental psychopathology and a resilience framework for research and practice.1–3 How children respond after such catastrophic events depends on many factors, including their direct experience with the disaster, exposure to multiple traumas, preexisting behavioral health problems, family and community support, and recovery-related experiences.4–8 Masten and colleagues9 have elaborated that recent theory and research suggest vulnerability factors may also be indicators of sensitivity or plasticity, such that responses to experiences can lead to poor outcomes ...

  • Domestic Violence and Pregnancy: A CBPR Coalition Approach to Identifying

    • Abstract: In recognition of the need to address health disparities through multifaceted, multidisciplinary, and multisystematic approaches,1 community engagement—the collaborative process of addressing issues that impact the well-being of a community2—is a strategic effort to improve quality of life and address community issues. To promote community–academic partnerships that address these health disparities, the GS-HPC established three CBPR coalition chapters in fall 2014. Among these, the Hattiesburg chapter (i.e., the HAHC) first met in November 2014 for the purpose of reviewing and improving policies impacting the health of the Hattiesburg community, broadly defined as Forrest and Lamar counties in Mississippi. The need ... Read More

  • School-Based Interprofessional Asthma Self-Management Education Program

    • Abstract: Asthma is a chronic health condition that demonstrates a high burden on approximately 8.4% of children in the United States, with 60.3% of children diagnosed with asthma categorized as having persistent asthma.1,2 Children with asthma use the emergency department more often, compared with children without asthma, and incur increased hospitalizations, which result in increased health care expenditures.3 It has been documented that almost half of children in the United States with asthma have missed 1 or more days of school owing to asthma-related issues.4 There are often barriers to obtaining asthma-related health care, such as not being able to afford medications or to see a primary care doctor, as well as a ...

The overall GS-HPC and its breakout coalitions are composed of more than 90 organizations meeting monthly in four locations since January 2015; one of the GS-HPC coalitions, which typically met in Bayou La Batre, Alabama, provided the backbone ...

    • Abstract: To effectively address health disparities in chronic disease rates among low-income populations, strong yet diverse cross-sector collaborations are required. One such partnership that has proven to be successful in reducing health disparities in vulnerable populations is an academic–community partnership.1–4 Using a collective impact framework5 with principles of community-based participatory research (CBPR),6–8 this article describes the beginning work of the Healthy Gulfport Initiative in developing an academic–community partnership to address barriers to health and wellness among vulnerable populations in Gulfport, Mississippi, and the broader Gulf Coast region. The overarching goal of the Healthy Gulfport ... Read More

    • Abstract: In general, farmworkers are a vulnerable population owing to various social, economic, and political constraints. The physical environment of fieldwork can expose workers to hazards such as harsh weather, snake and insect bites, and workplace chemical exposure. Occupational and environmental conditions can increase risk for issues such as musculoskeletal disorders,1 traumatic injuries,2 and kidney disease.3 Farmworkers are seldom compensated with hazard or overtime pay, workday breaks, minimum wages, insurance coverage, or other protections afforded to workers in other professions.4,5 Instead of an hourly wage, they often are paid a piece rate based on the amount of product harvested. This pay structure can cause ... Read More

Despite recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatrics for limiting use to 1 hour per day,7 preschoolers are estimated to spend 1.5 to 7.0 hours per day in screen time.8,9 Furthermore, the ...

Both programs were designed, coordinated and supported by the CEC of the Center of Excellence. Over time, the programs evolved into an integrated, multigenerational model for ... Read More

    • Abstract: In 2012, the U.S. Census Bureau reported 56.7 million people (19% of the U.S. population) were living with some type of disability.1 Even with this large population, there are limited opportunities for children and adolescents with disabilities to participate in fitness and leisure activities, and especially public school sports programs.2,3 In general, activity has been found to provide a wide variety of health benefits affecting physical, mental, and social health in children and adolescents. Physical benefits may include improvements in strength and endurance, building healthy bones and muscles, controlling weight, and controlling or normalizing blood pressure and cholesterol.4 Possible mental health and ...

           Evidence-Based Action
    • Abstract: Despite noteworthy advances in the health status of the U.S. population, African Americans experience a disproportionately higher proportion of chronic and infectious diseases when compared to other ethnoracial groups.1 The United States is at a critical juncture in advancing health equity through strategies that improve the health of ethnoracial minorities and, in turn, the health of the nation. Identifying effective multilevel strategies requires an understanding of a neighborhood's ecology toward approaches that are community led, implemented, and sustained.Historically, CHNAs have been characterized by data focused on disease statistics, with little or no attention to social determinants experienced by ...
