Positive Psychology Intervention for Spanish-speaking Hispanic/Latino Adults at Risk for Cardiovascular Disease

The largest epidemiologic study of Hispanic/Latino participants thus far, i.e., the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL) documented that 80% of men and 71% of women have at least one major cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factor. The American Heart Association emphasizes that current CVD prevention efforts are sparse and ineffectual in minority populations and acknowledges the need for new and more effective disease prevention strategies. This observatio...


BRCA Mutations in Latinas

Background: - BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations have been linked to a higher risk of developing breast cancer and other cancers, and may be associated with types of breast cancer that are more difficult to treat and more likely to recur. New cancer treatments are being developed specifically to treat individuals who have these gene mutations. However, more information is needed about the prevalence of these mutations in minority populations, including Hispanic/Latino popula...

A Culturally Targeted Transplant Program

Hispanic/Latino patients with end-stage renal disease are disproportionately less likely to get a kidney transplant, and specifically, a living donor kidney transplant (LDKT), compared to non-Hispanic whites. Accordingly, without LDKTs, Hispanics experience longer transplant waiting times, shorter patient and graft survival, and worse quality of life. Cultural beliefs and linguistic barriers contribute to the disparity in LDKTs. The objective of the proposed study is to impleme...

Pharmacogenomics of Warfarin in Hispanics and Latinos

Warfarin is a commonly used blood thinner to treat and prevent blood clots. It is important to take the right dose of warfarin because too much can increase the risk of bleeding and too little can increase the risk of blood clots. This is why patients are closely monitored especially when they begin warfarin therapy. When clinicians prescribe warfarin, they have to consider different factors such as patient's age, body size, diet, and other medications that can interact with wa...

Helping Hypertensive Latinos to Improve Medication Adherence

Poor medication adherence is a major contributor to inadequate BP control, and is associated with 125,000 deaths annually. Translation of adherence interventions to community-based primary care practices where majority of Latino patients receive care is non-existent. Thus, the development of tailored interventions targeted at improving medication adherence in the Latino population is needed in order to address the racial disparities in BP control between Latinos and whites. Thi...

Stories for Change: Digital Storytelling for Diabetes Self-Management Among Hispanic Adults

Hispanic adults are twice as likely to have type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) and 1.5 times more likely to die from the disease than non-Hispanic whites. These disparities are mediated, in part, by less healthful levels of physical activity, dietary quality, medication adherence, and self-monitoring of blood glucose than non-Hispanic whites. Innovative approaches that arise from affected communities are needed to address these health disparities. Community-based participatory res...

With Love: Using Promotoras for a Hispanic Community Palliative Care Promotora Palliative Care

Despite being strongly recommended, the integration of palliative care in oncology has not been widely adopted. Very few people have access to comprehensive palliative care.

The overarching objective of t...

Strong Futures: A Trial of Two Primary Care Based Interventions to Promote Optimal Health in Latino Infants and Toddlers

Latino children experience higher rates of obesity compared to non-Hispanic white children, especially in low-income communities. Optimal feeding strategies in early life, avoidance of screen time and longer sleep duration may lower the risk of obesity.
