The purpose of this evaluation is to understand the impact of mental health and psychosocial support (MHPS) programming that AmeriCares (a non-profit disaster response organization) is currently providing to healthcare and social service providers in Southeast Texas and Puerto Rico. The MHPS services are designed to provide skills to reduce stress, improve coping and reduce symptoms of burnout (compassion fatigue).
The primary aim of the survey is to ascertain the emergency preparedness among our families with diabetes mellitus and to obtain a percentage of unprepared to the ones who are prepared. The secondary aim is to demonstrate the relationship between disaster preparedness and factors like socio-economic status, parent's marital status, ethnicity and those who had prior experience of a disaster to those who have not experienced a disaster.
Disaster survivors need freely accessible resources to self-monitor their emotional recovery and help them address mental health needs they may develop after a disaster. The investigators will evaluate a novel, scalable, and highly sustainable smartphone/web-based intervention that is designed to address post-disaster PTSD and depressed mood. The intervention, Bounce Back Now, will be tested in a study with 5,000 disaster survivors and will be accessible via any internet-connec...
Background: - Disasters like earthquakes, floods, and oil spills can give people health problems. Workers who respond to a disaster (like police and firefighters) are directly exposed to contaminants during the emergency response. So they could be at the greatest risk for these problems. Researchers want to gather data about these workers before and right after they go to a disaster. They hope this will help them understand the health effects of disasters. Objectives: ...

Sonoma Rises is an app designed for anyone who was impacted by this event and is intended to help survivors of disaster find their new normal. This study will assess the feasibility of efficacy of a self-help post-disaster mental health intervention via mobile app with a sample of teens experiencing post-disaster mental health symptoms.
The present project partners with leading faith communities in Houston to provide expert-led educational workshops to a diverse sample of adults on normative and concerning response to disaster. Secondly implementing peer-led interventions where a trained adult leads others through an evidence-based manualized intervention. Lastly, identifying and referring individuals who require more intensive services to a higher level of care.
Asthma is a major public health problem among Puerto Ricans. Little is known, however, about the effect of heredity and environment on the development and severity of asthma in this population. This study will examine the relationship between asthma and certain genetic and environmental factors in Puerto Rican children.
The study evaluates the association between soluble insulin receptor dysfunction, cardiorespiratory fitness, and HIV associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND). Those who volunteer to participate in the study will have two evaluations at study entry that include a dual x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) densitometry, anthropometry, neurocognitive testing, blood and urine samples for metabolic testing, and a cardiorespiratory fitness testing. DEXA will be conducted in the Endocrinology ...
Project: An analysis of Diabetes Control in Puerto Rico Hypothesis: This project seeks to determine the causes for: i) poor adherence to prescribed treatment by patients, ii) low compliance by providers with national guidelines iii) barriers impose by health insurance in control of diabetes mellitus iv) effectiveness of a disease management program for treatment adherence by patients.
This pilot project will determine whether a diet culturally-adapted to Puerto Ricans can effectively decrease cardiometabolic risk for diabetes. This will help define a culturally-appropriate, feasible, and sustainable diet intervention aimed at reducing type 2 diabetes and obesity outcomes.
The purpose of this study is to test how the brain responds when individuals eat enjoyable foods such as chocolate. Eating certain foods can make one want to keep eating even when feeling full, caused by dopamine in the brain. The researchers believe this dopamine response can be measured by looking at the individual's eye.
The overall goal is to identify trends and longitudinal associations in psychosocial, food-related, and cardiometabolic risk factors that can guide public health priorities and future research needs aimed at reducing cardiovascular-related disparities in Puerto Rico. To this end, investigators will establish 'PROSPECT: Puerto Rico Observational Study of Psychosocial, Environmental, and Chronic disease Trends', an island-wide, longitudinal population cohort of 2,000 adults (30-7...
This study aims to first determine whether high child stress leads to reduced response to common treatmenIs for asthma (inhaled corticosteroids and short-acting bronchodilators), and then to identify DNA methylation differences leading to stress-induced treatment resistance among children with asthma.
The overall objective of this project is to conduct a preliminary evaluation of the "New Foods Take Time" Intervention in Head Start preschool classrooms.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate quality of life changes in Puerto Rican subjects with Rheumatoid Arthritis treated with Humira (adalimumab) as their first Anti-TNF Monoclonal Antibody.
Adenosine A1 and A2 receptors are widely distributed in the brain and spinal cord and represent a non-opiate target for pain management. Activated spinal A1 receptors inhibit sensory transmission by inhibiting the slow ventral root potential, which is the C-fiber-evoked excitatory response associated with nociception. Adenosine may inhibit intrinsic neurons through an increase in K+ conductance and presynaptic inhibition of sensory nerve terminals to inhibit the release of su...
In this study, the investigators will vary the proportions of high- and low-energy-dense foods served to preschool children at all meals and snacks during three 5-day periods. In the three experimental conditions, the same foods will be served; only the amounts and proportions of foods will be varied. In the Baseline condition, typical proportions of age-appropriate foods will be served. In the Addition condition, the portion sizes of low-energy-dense foods will be increased, a...
The purpose of this study was to test the efficacy of a CBT-based smoking cessation treatment enhanced with transdiagnostic skills for the management of anxiety and fear-based avoidance behaviors (CBT-A) relative to a standard CBT-based smoking cessation treatment (CBT-S) for smokers with elevated PTSD symptoms who were exposed to the 9/11 World Trade Center disaster. The investigators hypothesized that the CBT-A treatment would yield more favorable outcomes with regard to smok...
The sample will be, at least, 90 primary molars, randomly distributed into three groups: Group 1: IPC; Group 2: SE; Group 3: SCR. Teeth must present deep caries lesions (at least 2/3 of dentin depth), pulp vitality (no clinical or radiographical signs of pulp disease, such as abcesses, fistulae, root resorption, abnormal tooth mobility). This study received approval by the Ethics Committee of Fluminense Federal University (UFF; Brazil) - # CAAE: 58812816.8.0000.5626. The study ...
Gastric emptying rate, glycemic response, fermentation, and appetitive response are being assessed after consumption of traditional West African carbohydrate-based foods (pearl millet couscous, pearl millet thick porridge) and Western type carbohydrate-based foods (wheat couscous, white rice).

Investigators will evaluate clinical practice for AF detection and treatment in stroke patients within large stroke hospital systems of care with multi-ethnic patient populations and thereby representative of the states of Florida and Puerto Rico. The results of this study will be of crit...
Excessive eating of energy-dense foods and obesity are risk factors for a range of cancers. There are programs to reduce intake of these foods and weight loss, but the effects of the programs rarely last. This project tests whether altering the value of cancer-risk foods can create lasting change, and uses neuroimaging to compare the efficacy of two programs to engage the valuation system on a neural level. Results will establish the pathways through which the programs work and...
For weight loss to occur, energy intake needs to be reduced to incur an energy deficit. One dietary strategy that may facilitate weight loss is consuming a diet low in dietary energy density (ED). It is hypothesized that a diet low in ED, which can be achieved by a high intake of low-ED foods, low intake of high-ED foods, or a combination of the two, will allow a greater amount of volume of food to be consumed relative to energy consumed, which can assist with reducing energy i...
Food structure influence metabolic response including appetite. Whole grain foods include a wide range of products; cracked or cut kernels, rolled flakes or milled to flour and used in foods such as breads, breakfast cereals and pasta.
The aim of the study is to determine the glycaemic and insulinaemic index of pasta products and local foods. It is hypothesized that different pasta cuts and wholegrain composition of pasta and local foods have different GI depending on the nature of the carbohydrate content and the food structure within each food.
