In the past three decades, the number of obese and overweight individuals in Iowa and across the nation has skyrocketed. With obesity comes the greater risk of health complications and life expectancy reduction. As a result, there is a new and growing threat to the overall quality of life. In Iowa alone, 64.8% of adults are identified as either overweight or obese.*

Loss Of Caveolin-1 Alters Extracellular Matrix Protein Expression And Ductal Architecture In Murine Mammary Glands., Christopher Thompson, Sahar Rahim, Jeremiah Arnold, Abigail Hielscher 2017 Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine

Loss Of Caveolin-1 Alters Extracellular Matrix Protein Expression And Ductal Architecture In Murine Mammary Glands., Christopher Thompson, Sahar Rahim, Jeremiah Arnold, Abigail Hielscher

Abigail Hielscher

The extracellular matrix (ECM) is abnormal in breast tumors and has been reported to contribute to breast tumor progression. One factor, which may drive ongoing matrix synthesis in breast tumors, is the loss of stromal caveolin-1 (cav-1), a scaffolding protein of caveolae, which has been linked to breast tumor aggressiveness. To determine whether loss of cav-1 results in the abnormal expression of matrix proteins, mammary glands from cav- 1-/- and cav- 1 +/+ mice were investigated for differences in expression of several ECM proteins. In addition, the presence of myofibroblasts, changes in the vessel density, and differences in duct number and ...


Fibronectin: How Its Aberrant Expression In Tumors May Improve Therapeutic Targeting, Jennifer Peyling Wang, Abigail Hielscher 2017 Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine

Fibronectin: How Its Aberrant Expression In Tumors May Improve Therapeutic Targeting, Jennifer Peyling Wang, Abigail Hielscher

Abigail Hielscher

Fibronectin is a matrix glycoprotein which has not only been found to be over-expressed in several cancers, but has been shown to participate in several steps of tumorigenesis. The purpose of this review is to illustrate how aberrant fibronectin expression influences tumor growth, invasion, metastasis and therapy resistance. In particular, this review will focus on the interactions between cell receptor ligands and fibronectin and how this interaction influences downstream signaling events that aid tumor progression. This review will further discuss the possible implications of therapeutic drugs directed against fibronectin and/or cellular interactions with fibronectin and will additionally discuss novel ...

Cadaveric And Chart Retrospective On Shoulder Variation: Morphology And Pain, Jeff Capone, Kerin M. Claeson, Lauren Noto-Bell

Kerin M. Claeson

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) is a category of several types of manual techniques used by osteopathic physicians. According to the osteopathic tradition, structure and function are intimately related. This project examined the relationship between shoulder structure and function in an osteopathic framework, with a specific goal to understand how the structure of the acromion affects the development of shoulder injuries. For the first part of this project, cadaveric dissections were performed and muscle diameters were taken of structures within the subacromial space. The second part of this project assessed the efficacy of OMT in shoulder somatic dysfunction for patients treated ...

Wadi El-Hitan, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, of the Fayum Depression in the northeast part of the Western Desert of Egypt, has produced a remarkable collection of Eocene vertebrates, in particular the fossil whales from which it derives its name. Here we describe a new genus and species of marine catfishes (Siluriformes; Ariidae), Qarmoutus hitanensis, from the base of the upper Eocene Birket Qarun Formation, based on a partial neurocranium including the complete left side, partial right dentary, left suspensorium, two opercles, left pectoral girdle and spine, nuchal plates, first and second dorsal spines, Weberian apparatus and a disassociated series ...


The Strength Of Multi-Sector Delivery Systems For Population Health, Glen P. Mays 2017 University of Kentucky

The Strength Of Multi-Sector Delivery Systems For Population Health, Glen P. Mays

Glen Mays

Landmark research by Raj Chetty and colleagues finds wide geographic and intertemporal variation in the relationship between income and life expectancy in the U.S., using 1.4 billion administrative tax records from the IRS linked to nearly 7 million federal death records.1 Many questions remain about the underlying causes of these findings and their implications for policy.  Another longitudinal data source, the National Longitudinal Survey of Public Health Systems, has followed more than 350 U.S. communities over more than 15 years to measure the types of population health activities implemented in these areas and the networks of ...


Putting Care Back Into "Health Care:" An Analysis Of The Place Of Community Health Workers Within The U.S. Health Care System, Megan Schowalter 2017 University of Puget Sound

Putting Care Back Into "Health Care:" An Analysis Of The Place Of Community Health Workers Within The U.S. Health Care System, Megan Schowalter

Honors Program Theses

This paper explores who a Community Health Worker (CHW) is and contextualizes the social, political, and historical factors that allowed for the growth of CHWs within the primary health care sector in the U.S. It analyzes how CHWs perceive their own roles and responsibilities within the U.S. health system as a means of highlighting the gap within health care services and the influence of Social Determinants of Health (SDH) on well-being. The second part of this paper relates CHWs to scholarship by medical anthropologist Paul Farmer and public health scholar Alicia Yamin concerning pathologies of power and the ...


Public Schools, And Health Care: A Strategy To Promote Social Inclusion, Jana Sladkova, Anahi Viladrich, Nicholas Freudenberg 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Public Schools, And Health Care: A Strategy To Promote Social Inclusion, Jana Sladkova, Anahi Viladrich, Nicholas Freudenberg

Occasional Paper Series

Sladkova, Viladrich, and Freudenberg refer to “social inclusion” as the process through which the newly arrived find their voice in an already complex, cacophonous society. They describe an approach to social inclusion for adult immigrants that melds learning English at the same time as learning to negotiate our often-Byzantine health care system. They highlight programs that work and a new perspective on how to maximize the effectiveness of limited adult education opportunities.


Emergency Room Nurses Knowledge Of And Experience With Health Literacy And Their Patient Teaching Methods, Deborah Kennard 2017 Seton Hall University

Emergency Room Nurses Knowledge Of And Experience With Health Literacy And Their Patient Teaching Methods, Deborah Kennard

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Health literacy (HL) is the ability one has to understand health information and navigate within the health system. Health literacy is linked to health knowledge and acute and chronic health outcomes. The conceptual model of health literacy outlines the contextual factors related to individual health literacy throughout the health system and the mitigating influence on outcomes. Education is a key factor to health knowledge and behavior changes. Nurses are the primary educators for providing patient teaching and yet research indicates nurses are lacking in knowledge regarding this. One area in the health system where health literacy has a strong effect ...
