Healthy Food Availability In Hartford's Corner Stores: Wic Authorization Matters, Erin Katherine Havens 2010 University of Connecticut Health Center

Healthy Food Availability In Hartford's Corner Stores: Wic Authorization Matters, Erin Katherine Havens

UCHC Graduate School Masters Theses 2003 - 2010

Diet is an important modifiable risk factor for obesity and related chronic diseases which are disproportionately high among low-income and racial/ethnic minority populations. A growing field of research has documented inequalities by race and income in neighborhood access to foods recommended for a healthy diet. In October 2009, the revised food package for the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) took effect, requiring certified stores to stock fresh produce, whole grain products and other foods consistent with national dietary recommendations. This project examined 1) differences in healthy food availability (HFA) between WIC-certified and non-certified corner stores ...

Health Sciences Papers and Journal Articles

Background and Aims: Overweight and other risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) as well as their clustering, or the metabolic syndrome, are increasingly prevalent among children and adolescents. We examined dietary patterns, CVD risk factors, and the clustering of these risk factors, in 1139 14 year olds living in Western Australia.

Methods and Results: Usual dietary intake was assessed with a food frequency questionnaire. Two dietary patterns, ‘Western’ and ‘Healthy’, were identified using factor analysis. Associations between these dietary patterns and BMI, waist circumference, systolic blood pressure, fasting levels of serum glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, HDL C, LDL C, triglycerides ...


The Role Of Noise And Positive Feedback In The Onset Of Autosomal Dominant Diseases, William Bosl, Rong Li 2010 University of San Francisco

The Role Of Noise And Positive Feedback In The Onset Of Autosomal Dominant Diseases, William Bosl, Rong Li

Nursing and Health Professions Faculty Research and Publications

Background

Autosomal dominant (AD) diseases result when a single mutant or non-functioning gene is present on an autosomal chromosome. These diseases often do not emerge at birth. There are presently two prevailing theories explaining the expression of AD diseases. One explanation originates from the Knudson two-hit theory of hereditary cancers, where loss of heterozygosity or occurrence of somatic mutations impairs the function of the wild-type copy. While these somatic second hits may be sufficient for stable disease states, it is often difficult to determine if their occurrence necessarily marks the initiation of disease progression. A more direct consequence of a ...

Molecular And Therapeutic Implications Of Notch1 Signaling In Pediatric T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Amanda Larson Gedman 2010 Wayne State University

Molecular And Therapeutic Implications Of Notch1 Signaling In Pediatric T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Amanda Larson Gedman

Wayne State University Dissertations

T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) accounts for 15% of pediatric ALL cases and is associated with early relapse and inferior outcome. The poorer prognosis of T-ALL compared to B-precursor ALL may in part reflect the lack of unique features on which to base therapy. NOTCH1 mutations are of particular interest since these were reported in 37-71% of T-ALLs. The prognostic value of NOTCH1 mutations remains controversial as both favorable and unfavorable associations were reported, whereas in other studies, there were no associations between NOTCH1 mutations and treatment outcome. We explored the impact of mutations in NOTCH1, FBW7 and PTEN on ...


The Role Of Pete In Developing Joy-Oriented Physical Educators, Bonnie Tjeerdsma Blankenship, Suzan F. Ayers 2010 Western Michigan University

The Role Of Pete In Developing Joy-Oriented Physical Educators, Bonnie Tjeerdsma Blankenship, Suzan F. Ayers

Human Performance and Health Education Faculty Research

The current focus on utilitarian outcomes (e.g., fitness, health, skill development) in physical education has not been effective in producing life-long movers and makes physical activity a duty to be performed. An alternative to a utilitarian focus is to have a joy-oriented focus in which physical activity is promoted because it is joyful, pleasurable, and personally meaningful. In this paper, we present factors that inhibit a joy-oriented focus in physical education and reasons physical education teacher education (PETE) programs have thus far failed to produce joy-oriented physical education teachers. We then present a new approach to PETE—the foundational ...

Radical Hysterectomy With Pelvic Lymphadenectomy: Indications, Technique, And Complications, Rachel A. Ware, John R. van Nagell Jr. 2010 University of Kentucky

Radical Hysterectomy With Pelvic Lymphadenectomy: Indications, Technique, And Complications, Rachel A. Ware, John R. Van Nagell Jr.

Obstetrics and Gynecology Faculty Publications

Radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy remains the treatment of choice for women with Stages IA2 and IB1carcinoma of the cervix, and selected patients with Stage II endometrial cancer. Improvement in surgical techniqe, administration of prophylactic antibiotics, thromboemolic prophylaxis, and advances in critical care medicine have resulted in lower operative morbidity associated with this procedure. Major urinary tract complications such as ureteral injury or vesico-vaginal fistula are now extremely rare (< 1%). Five-year survival rates following this procedure vary according to a number of clinical and histologic variables, and may be as high as 90% in women without lymph node metastases.

Chronic Illness And Mental Health Issues, Marlene B. Huff, Kimberly K. McClanahan, Hatim A. Omar 2010 University of Kentucky

Chronic Illness And Mental Health Issues, Marlene B. Huff, Kimberly K. Mcclanahan, Hatim A. Omar

Pediatrics Faculty Publications

By 2015, worldwide, 1.2 billion children aged 5-14 years will have some kind of significant chronic disease. Although scientific evidence indicates that children with chronic illness have more mental health issues than their healthy peers, many controversies and gaps in the literature exist. It is imperative that an understanding of the effects of chronic illness upon the mental health status of children and adolescent be undertaken. This article uses a biopsychosocial perspective to investigate the connection between chronic illness and mental health. The intent of the article is to suggest ways that medical and mental health professionals can provide ...

Angela Kucia

In practice, TTC is diagnosed almost exclusively either via (1) emergency cardiac catheterisation, primarily for apparent 'STEMI', or (2) recognition of a potentially precipating stress, primarily in patients with a non-ST-elevation (N-STE) ECG pattern. We therefore hypothesized that the greatest delays in diagnosis would occur in the subgroup with N-STE and no known stressor. A seasonality analysis was also undertaken, to test a possible association between heat stress and TTC.

Evolution Of Ecg Changes In Tako Tsubo Cardiomyopathy: Arrhythmias First, Qt Prolongation Later?, Angela M. Kucia, C Neil, T Nguyen, J Beltrame, M Arstall, J Horowitz

Angela Kucia

Electrocardiographic changes previously described in Tako Tsubo Cardiomyopathy (TTC) include T-wave inversion with QTc prolongation, but the relationship of these changes to the evolution of TTC is uncertain. Furthermore, torsade de pointes (TdP) has been reported to occur, but its relationship to QT prolongation in TTC is unclear.

Responding To Nursing Home Abuse-Case Study Of Illinois Department Of Public Health, Department Of Professional Regulation. Us Human Rights Record Worse Than China Record, James T. Struck

James T Struck

Illinois takes away the right to decide and resources of people with disabilities under guardianship. Other nations and states also have guardianship with over 1.6 million people under guardianship, and 1.6 million in nursing homes. Some Illinois nursing homes deny liberties such as phone use, visitation, coming home, fresh air away from second hand smoking, consent, chemicals used, dental services, religious services, knowing where family is, museums, zoos, parks, reunions. This article addresses the regulatory response. When seeking the assistance of the Illinois Department of Public Health, Illinois Human Rights Department, and Illinois Department of Professional Regulation, requests ...


Using Rasch Modeling To Investigate The Psychometric Properties Of The Osce, Carole Steketee, Elina Tor 2010 University of Notre Dame Australia

Using Rasch Modeling To Investigate The Psychometric Properties Of The Osce, Carole Steketee, Elina Tor

Medical Conference Papers

Background

It is vital that undergraduate medical students demonstrate competency in clinical skills upon graduation. To confidently state that students are competent in these skills, medical schools must assess students using tools that provide an accurate measure of their abilities. As with many medical schools, the School of Medicine at the University of Notre Dame Australia uses the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). Research findings strongly support the OSCE as a reliable and valid measure of students’ clinical competence. However, traditional item analyses of OSCE papers were not providing the School with enough insight into how individual stations were performing ...
