Trust, Money, and Power: Life Cycle Dynamics in Alliances Between Management Partners and Accountable Care Organizations.

Policy Points Accountable care organizations (ACOs) form alliances with management partners to access financial, technical, and managerial support. Alliances between ACOs and management partners are subject to destabilizing tension around decision-making authority, distribution of shared savings, and conflicting goals and values.

Targeted HIV testing for male partners of HIV-positive pregnant women in a high prevalence setting in Nigeria.

The industry average leverage ratio is also a critical factor influencing firms' competitiveness. High debt levels hinder firms' competitiven...

A tale of two Harlems: Gentrification, social capital, and implications for aging in place.

Increasingly, older adults desire to remain in their communities for as long as possible, referred to as "aging in place".

The current study explores social capital in a gentrifying community to better understand the effects of rapid neighborhood change on older, African American adults.

Evidence suggests a need to rethink social capital and social capital interventions.

In the 21 years since social capital first appeared in the public health literature, the evidence base has grown enormously, now reaching 28 systematic reviews encompassing more than 850 individual studies.

A critical factor is the inadequate way that context is treated in the research...
