Leadership positions in academic medicine lack racial and gender diversity. In 2016, the Council of Academic Family Medicine (CAFM) established a Leadership Development Task Force to specifically address the lack of diversity among leadership in academic family medicine, particularly for underrepresented minorities and women.
Diversity and inclusion in medicine, and in surgery in particular, still merit substantial attention in 2019. With each increase in academic rank there are fewer women, with only 24% of full professors in medicine being women. Underrepresented minorities face similar challenges, with only 3% of medical faculty being black and 4% of medical faculty being Hispanic or Latino; only 2% of full professors are Hispanic or Latino and only another 2% are black. Explicit discrimination unfortunately still does exist,...
Population-based surveys document disparities in substance use among sexual minorities compared to heterosexuals, but few studies examine changes over time. This study compared changes in harmful drinking (including alcohol use disorders and high-intensity drinking), tobacco use, marijuana use, and simultaneous marijuana and alcohol co-use between heterosexual and sexual minority adults over a 15-year period. Gender-stratified logistic regression analyses using 4 waves of cross-sectional data from the Nati...
According to the U.S. Census, 63.7% of the population is Caucasian, whereas 36.3% are minorities. In the United States, 33.1% of RNs are considered ethnic minorities whereas in Nebraska only 6.3% of RNs are minorities. Specific measures are needed to prepare a more diverse nursing workforce. The use of specific supportive methods directed toward educationally disadvantaged and minority nursing students may improve retention.
Exposure to sexual orientation-related discrimination among sexual minorities may lead to elevated levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) as compared to their heterosexual counterparts. However, little is known about factors that may buffer the association between discrimination and CRP among sexual minorities versus heterosexuals. The current study examined if the association between discrimination, sexual orientation, and CRP differed across levels of social support from one's father/father-figure or mother/m...
Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) Talks have represented a broad source of health communication since 1984. However, to date, no studies exist on how this tool addresses the question of cancer. In this paper, we aim to illuminate two major issues: (1) Are TED Talks a good source for cancer communication? (2) How does the public respond to cancer-related TED Talk lectures? To this end, we searched for the keyword 'cancer' on the TED.com website in January 2018. All transcripts were obtained along with ...
The occurrence of dementia among individuals with a migration background and composing ethnic minorities is being recognized as a global public health issue.
Breast cancer morbidity and mortality disproportionately affect medically underserved women. Most studies of the experience of living with advanced breast cancer do not focus on this population. A deeper understanding of racial/ethnic minorities' and low-income patients' experiences is needed to reduce breast cancer health and healthcare disparities.
Prenatal screening and testing are preference-based health care options. They are offered so that pregnant women and their partners can learn genetic information about the developing fetus. In this literature review, I summarize studies of women's and their partners' psychological responses to prenatal testing and screening. These studies investigate the experiences of pregnant women, largely in the United States, who have access to health care services. Although the results indicate that these women are re...
Increasing the number of organ donors may enhance organ transplantation, and past health interventions have shown the potential to generate both large-scale and sustainable changes, particularly among minorities.
Various minorities in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, and socioeconomic status experience poorer health outcomes than those in the majority. Evidence indicates that provider diversity is associated with improved access to care for minorities, increased patient satisfaction, improved outcomes, and better educational experiences for health professions students.
Sexual minorities have an increased risk of psychosis, potentially explained by experiences of social adversity. Sexual minorities may also have a specific risk of paranoid symptoms. The current study aimed to determine whether sexual minorities have increased risk of psychosis, whether they have a specific increased risk of paranoia when compared to auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs), and whether social adversity such as bullying, recent discrimination, lack of social support, and drug use can explain t...
Sexual minorities' mental health disparities are produced in larger contexts of sexual stigma. There is limited understanding of pathways between sexual stigma dimensions (e.g., enacted, perceived, internalized), psychological processes, and depression.
We are writing in regards to an article by Talks and colleagues that was recently published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery. The stated aim of the study was to "determine whether there was evidence of systemic inflammation in patients with FAI, defined by sFLCs, and whether this correlated with markers of disease severity." The article measured serum free light chains (sFLCs) in 115 patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), with 57 patients undergoing surgical intervention and 58 receiving ph...
This study examines how social support and perceived discrimination influence depressive symptoms of sexual minorities (including, lesbian, gay, bisexual-identifying individuals, and others with same-sex sexual partners) relative to heterosexual peers, while considering the role of HIV-positive status. We surveyed low-income, predominantly Hispanic/Latino/as residents receiving STI-testing and/or HIV/AIDS care in the lower Rio Grande Valley of southernmost Texas. Respondents aged 18+ took a self-administere...
Women now comprise 40.5% of integrated plastic surgery residents, however in 2007 women represented only 11.3% of the leadership positions in plastic surgery societies and journal editorial boards. This study aimed to analyze the trends of female representation in these societies and editorial boards in the past ten years.
Despite the higher risk of HIV among female sex workers (FSWs), men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women (TGW), these populations are under-represented in the literature on HIV in Haiti. Here, we present the first nationally representative estimates of HIV prevalence and the first care and treatment cascade for FSWs, MSM and TGW in Haiti. We also examine the social determinants of HIV prevalence in these groups and estimate FSW and MSM population size in Haiti.

The oral presentations were presented in six sessions over the two days with ample lunch break for delegates to chat to poster presenters and network. The meeting was a huge success and feedback ha...
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between tongue muscle quality index, which was represented as tongue muscle pressure divided by tongue muscle mass, and swallowing speed in community-dwelling older women.
The authors investigated women's successful aging in the context of well-being and satisfaction with life. This study was conducted with 129 women in Women's Rest Homes in the province of Adana, Turkey. It was found that satisfaction with life (SL) was significantly associated with successful aging (SAS) ( = .350; = .005; = 2.833), and SAS ( = .358; = .008; = 2.632) and SL ( = .669; ≤ 0.001; = 4.774) were significantly associated with women's well-being (WBI). Women in the 60-66 age ...
Adaptation to social life changes after migration may be beneficial or detrimental to migrants' oral health outcomes and related behaviors. This systematic review aims to synthesize the scientific literature on the impact of social support on immigrants' and ethnic minorities' oral health status and/or behaviors.
Older women with breast cancer remain under-represented in clinical trials. The Cancer and Leukemia Group B 49907 trial focused on women age 65 years and older. We previously reported the primary analysis after a median follow-up of 2.4 years. Standard adjuvant chemotherapy showed significant improvements in recurrence-free survival (RFS) and overall survival compared with capecitabine. We now update results at a median follow-up of 11.4 years.
Cardiovascular diseases are the primary cause of death in women. Cardiovascular risk is specific and often underestimated in women. At equal age, women have more cardiovascular risk factors than men. Some of them such as smoking and diabetes are associated with greater increase of cardiovascular risk and poorer prognosis in women as compared to men. In addition, women have a specific hormonal risk linked to contraception, pregnancy and menopause. Prevention, screening and diagnosis are generally implemented...
