The present study is designed to to estimate the prevalence of frailty and pre-frailty and their associated factors in community-dwelling populations aged 50 years and above in Hong Kong, and to explore the views of participants taking part in a community health talks or activities on frailty about what the participants felt or had gained from participating, concerns, and suggestions for change or improvement. A survey of 15000 people aged 50 years or older identified in commu...
This pilot study will explore the usefulness of a series of questions asking about views of research from the perspective of minority and economically disadvantaged research participants. Racial and ethnic minorities are consistently under-represented in clinical research. This under-representation has been attributed primarily to an unwillingness to participate in research because of mistrust in the research establishment, especially in light of widely known historical example...
The CUSTOM research project represents a complex intervention. The project aim of the intervention is, through the delivery of culturally sensitive Diabetes self-management education and support, to support ethnic minorities with type 2 diabetes in making health-promoting decisions about their care and gaining insight into their goals, values and motivation to improve their daily diabetes self-management.

On the other hand, CVD may also occur in premenopausal young women, due to not well known and/or not clearly investigated mechanisms. In addition, pre-menopausal wom...
The purpose pf this study is to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of a culturally and linguistically tailored clinical trial literacy website in increasing likelihood of participating in clinical trials. To achieve this objective,a randomized group design will address the following patient-centered outcomes: willingness to enroll in clinical trials and behavioral intent as well as likelihood of referring others to enroll in such trials) before and after exposure to a cultu...

The SCCOR Minorities study will recruit minority participants from the COPDGene cohort, in whom the University of Pittsburgh has already obtained baseline and five year data, in order to enhance bone mineral density and vascular function data collection from minority smokers. Dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans will be obtained to measure bone mineral density. Non-invasive vascular studies will be performed to measure endothelial function. Questionnaires regarding symptoms an...
The objective of the study is to examine the effect of nutritional intake on hemodynamic, cardiometabolic, and inflammation markers in advanced heart failure patients with implanted hemodynamic monitoring device (CardioMEMS), using a one-group pre-post test design feeding trial. The pre-test condition is represented by participants' self-selected diet, and the post-test condition is represented by a prescribed Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet.

This project aims to investigate the effects of an individualized exercise programme with and without BCE strategies for community-dwelling frail older people with general fatigue, so as to reduce their fatigue and improve their physical endurance, exercise self-efficacy, and habitual physical activity, while reducing their symptoms of frailty. Twelve district community health centres will be randomized to one of the three study groups: the combined (COMB) group, receiving the...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and ethnic differences of a brief alcohol intervention for injured patients.
The importance of reducing tobacco-associated health disparities between cannot be understated. Racial/ethnic minorities are less likely to quit, and tend to have elevated stress and depressive symptoms, which may contribute to cessation disparities. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for cessation addresses these concerns and has the potential to reduce/eliminate disparities. Preliminary research found racial/ethnic differences in baseline perceived stress and depressive sympt...
The purpose of this study is to improve hypertension outcomes in racial and ethnic minorities.
Greater advances are needed in two separate but related areas in healthcare: 1) the Clinical Decision Support Systems that complement the EHR use in support of routine patient care, population management and disease management; and 2) the use of the point‐of‐care observational data from the provider‐patient encounter that support realworld medical research and healthcare quality measure assessment. Real‐world evaluations of treatments of chronic diseases in the context ...
Vitamin D supplementation in minority subjects with both pre-diabetes and low vitamin D levels will delay the development of diabetes.
Heavy episodic drinking and sexual assault (SA) are problematic on college campuses. This project will adapt already developed interventions targeting alcohol use and SA to a mHealth format and involve content that incorporates federal guidelines and CDC recommendations to integrate both bystander intervention and risk reduction content with new innovative personalized content for each risk group (cis-gender heterosexual men, cis-gender heterosexual women, and sexual/gender min...

To develop a comprehensive database publication (databook) utilizing available published and unpublished data on the prevalence of hypertension and its treatment and control in selected minority populations in the United States -- Hispanic, Asian and American Indian.
Adherence to cardiac rehabilitation is poor, and worse for minorities, women, and those with lower levels of education. Patients less likely to be referred to and complete cardiac rehab are at highest risk of adverse outcomes and thus have the most to gain from participation in cardiac rehab. To improve participation, healthcare systems need to limit barriers to enrollment and promote adherence to rehabilitation.
This study will look at participants' body weight from the start to the end of the study. The study will last for about 1½ years. This is to compare the effect on body weight in people taking semaglutide once a week or people taking liraglutide once every day. Participants will either get semaglutide, liraglutide or "dummy" medicine. Which treatment is decided by chance. Participants who receive semaglutide or semaglutide "dummy" medicine will need to take 1 injection once a w...
This project is a 2-phase, randomized clinical trial that includes 7 days of unilateral leg disuse (Phase 1), immediately followed by 14 days of bilateral leg rehabilitation (Phase 2). The investigators will recruit cohorts of healthy middle-aged men and women to address their aims: - Demonstrate the sex-specific effects of skeletal muscle disuse (Phase 1) - Identify key molecular determinates of susceptibility of skeletal muscle atrophy (Phase 1) - ...
The investigators propose to test for non-BRCA1/2 mutations in new and existing families with hereditary ovarian cancer in order to better define penetrance and associated malignancies of rare ovarian cancer susceptibility genes. The hypothesis is at least one third of hereditary ovarian carcinoma families wildtype for BRCA1/2 can be solved using an updated version of BROCA (BROCA-HR) that targets 47 genes, including all known ovarian cancer genes and additional candidate genes...
