Partners of patients with advanced cancer often take a great responsibility for the patient's care. They are often unprepared for a situation where they are faced both with the role as caregivers and with the patient's impending death. This project has a randomized controlled design and holds significant research questions on how to implement a web-based intervention and make it easily available to all those in need and prevent negative consequences related to caregiving and th...
This research aims to help older African Americans with diabetes and mild memory problems improve how they take their medications and control their diabetes. This may preserve their independence and health, prevent cognitive and functional decline, and reduce health care costs. As the population ages and becomes more racially diverse, finding ways to achieve these outcomes has great public health importance.
The purpose of the present study is to examine the effects of perspective-taking reappraisals on the well-being of adult-child dementia caregivers.
Specific Aim 8. Evaluate the efficacy of Project UPLIFT for reducing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD among African Americans at immediate posttest, after 3 months, and after 5 months.
- Research demonstrates that the families of the seriously mentally ill are burdened by this caregiving role and by their responsibilities - Research also demonstrates that family interventions are effective and that they have a potential to reduce family burden, as well as to improve the condition of the mentally ill patients. - We assume that the sibling group intervention would be effective in reducing the family burden of the siblings, ...
REACT is a randomized intervention to examine the benefits of African Dance as a method to increase physical activity behaviors in older adults. In this 6- month intervention, older African Americans will be randomly assigned to either an African Dance or an Africana Culture class. Both before and at the completion of the intervention, the investigators will collect a comprehensive neuropsychological battery and MRI scans of brain health and function to better study how physica...
The purpose of this study is to estimate the prevalence of caregiving in hospitalized cardiac patients by demographic factors such as patient age and race/ethnicity, and to link caregiving to clinical outcomes (including CVD morbidity, mortality, and rehospitalizations)and adherence to medications in cardiac patients.
Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is a syndrome defined as a cognitive decline that is more severe than can be explained by an individual's age and education. One study in the United States found that MCI caregivers have experienced distress in association with caregiver burden. The prevalence of MCI for people age 65 and older ranges from 3% to 19%. Understanding the process of family caregiving provides a knowledge base for the health professionals when developing effective int...
Rural African Americans are disproportionately impacted by social stressors that place them at risk for experiencing elevated depressive symptoms. This project will test the effectiveness of a culturally adapted behavioral activation intervention (REJOICE) for use within rural African American churches. Further, this project will gather data on strategies necessary to promote the successful implementation of this intervention within rural African American churches.
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer and the third highest cause of mortality in Vietnamese and Asian Americans. CRC incidence is rising rapidly in Vietnamese Americans, but they have among the lowest rates of CRC screening (14%) and are more likely to be diagnosed with advanced stage disease, which is highly preventable. Over 85% of Vietnamese Americans in our region (PA, NJ and NYC) are foreign-born with limited English proficiency, have low SE...
Project Rise is a randomized controlled trial (RCT) of an innovative, culturally congruent treatment education (TE) intervention for African Americans with HIV that targets cultural and social issues contributing to health disparities.
Despite the recognized health benefits of a physically active lifestyle, mid-life and older low-income and ethnic minority adults, including Hispanic Americans, are among the least active and understudied groups in the U.S. This research aims to develop and evaluate a bi-lingual physical activity promotion program, applying easy to use state-of-the-art computer technology, which is tailored to the preferences and needs of mid-life and older Latino adults. Such computer-based pr...
The objectives of this study are to: 1) validate a rapid, portable, cost-effective method for screening myosteatosis and sarcopenia using diagnostic ultrasound, and 2) investigate a novel approach to progressive resistance exercise involving eccentric muscle actions that will counter the local effects of myosteatosis and sarcopenia in African Americans.
The purpose of this study is to compare an herbal supplement, nonfood-derived vitamins, and placebo for the care of cardiovascular disease in high risk older African Americans.
Many Korean Americans are at risk for developing high blood pressure. Low health literacy levels may play a role in this risk. The purpose of this study is to evaluate a literacy-focused program aimed at reducing blood pressure levels in older Korean Americans.
The burden of colorectal cancer (CRC) is unequal among various populations within the United States. This inequality is most notable among African Americans, who exhibit the highest CRC mortality of all US populations. This study aims to evaluate a community-based intervention to educate, assess risk, and overcome barriers to screening among African Americans who are 45 years or older with no personal history of CRC, adenomas, or inflammatory bowel disease and have no family hi...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of meditation on older African Americans with documented cardiovascular disease (CVD).
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans provide recommendations for making better food and physical activity choices that promote health and help prevent disease. Yet, few Americans meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) and a large percentage are overweight.
The goal of this study is to determine whether increasing participation in cognitive, physical, and/or social activities prevents cognitive decline in older African Americans (AAs) with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). Patients with MCI are at increased risk for Alzheimer's Disease (AD); we propose that increasing participation in activities will prevent cognitive decline and may delay the onset of Alzheimer's Disease (AD). We will test this hypothesis by conducting a clinica...
Colorectal cancer is the second deadliest among cancers and disproportionately affects African Americans. The Colorectal Cancer Screening Intervention Trial(CCSIT) project has as its goal to test three interventions designed to increase screening rates among medically underserved African Americans in the Metropolitan Atlanta area. It is designed to increase awareness of modifiable risk factors and promote the benefits of screening as a means of early detection of colorectal ca...
Although increasing age is associated with declining health and function, there are wide variations between individuals in the ageing process. Some of these differences are explained by differences in lifestyle, but little is known about the determinants of lifestyle in older age. The proposed project will describe influences on health behaviour and lifestyle in older adults. Investigators will undertake a prospective study of community-dwelling older people who use any of the ...
