Research Areas – Cancer Health Disparities

Why Research on Cancer Health Disparities Is Critical to Progress against the Disease

Although there has been substantial progress in cancer treatment, screening, diagnosis, and prevention over the past several decades, addressing cancer health disparities—such as higher cancer death rates, less frequent use of proven screening tests, and higher rates of advanced cancer diagnoses—in certain populations is an area in which progress has not kept pace.

These disparities are frequently seen in people from low-socioeconomic groups, certain racial/ethnic populations, and those who live in geographically isolated areas.

Documented cancer health disparities include:

  • a higher incidence of a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer (the triple-negative subtype) among African American women than women of other racial/ethnic groups
  • substantially higher rates of prostate cancer incidence and death among African American men than men of other racial/ethnic groups
  • higher rates of kidney cancer among American Indian and Alaska Natives than other racial/ethnic groups

Dentist in Inglewood

For more than 22 years, Dr. Deborah Fox has led a private orthodontist practice in Rochester, New York. Dr. Deborah Fox recently introduced to her office the iTero Digital Scanner, which provides an alternative to traditional impressions.

Many dental and orthodontic patients dread sitting through an impression. The associated material is not only messy but also can be extremely uncomfortable and can easily activate a patient’s gag reflex. The iTero Digital Scanner serves as a safe and comfortable alternative. Using laser technology, it takes an accurate three-dimensional image of the patient’s teeth and gums.

The iTero Digital Scanner uses a hand-held wand that the dentist or orthodontist manipulates to capture images of the teeth. The scan appears on a screen that both practitioner and patient can view in real time, and the final product is then available to transmit directly to a laboratory. Furthermore, if the practice has

China Pledged to Build a New Hospital in 10 Days. It’s Close.

WUHAN, China — People desperate for treatment started descending on a new hospital that was mostly built in just 10 days to help cope with the outbreak of the new coronavirus in the central city of Wuhan on Monday.

Construction workers in hard hats, medical staff in hazmat suits, and men and women in army fatigues scrambled around the dusty site on Monday afternoon, dodging moving trucks, excavators and cranes. Workers were still trying to finish construction on the Huoshenshan Hospital — a name that means “Fire God Mountain” — even as the facility prepared to accept its first batch of patients, the official state broadcaster, China Central Television, reported.

Xue Ying, a resident of Wuhan, had driven to the new hospital hoping to find help for his increasingly unwell cousin. But city officials and signs on checkpoints have said the hospital would

Characteristics of Mental Health

Understanding the characteristics that make up good mental health will help you determine how mentally fit you are. Here are some real-life examples:
Ability to enjoy life You’ve just become engaged. You join your friends and family in celebrating the future you are planning with your partner. You realize that life before and after your marriage will bring challenges, but worries about problems that may crop up do not dim the joy you feel.
Resilience Due to changes in the marketplace, you are suddenly laid off from a job you love. You are shocked and angry, but those emotions fade quickly as you put the event in perspective. You gather solid references, revamp your resume and begin your job search.
Balance An old friend confronts you, saying you never have time for him. You are taken aback and give excuses of overwork. Then you look at

Why walking is the best exercise + great benefits of walking

Walking is the most recommended form of cardio for a reason – it’s the perfect low-impact workout to burn calories and get healthier that anyone can do. A common myth is that the only way to get all the benefits of cardio is through running and jumping. Research has shown that you can get most if not all of the same benefits from walking at a lower intensity level, which is perfect for everyone from beginners to super active people.

Walking might be the perfect exercise because it’s great for your mind and mental health in addition to its physical benefits. 15 minutes in the morning and a short walk after dinner are all you need to hit your recommended daily activity too.

Read on to learn more about the many benefits of walking for mind and body, why walking is the most popular exercise, and how to get

Dentist offices reopen for non-emergency procedures with precautions in place

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – As many offices open back up, people can start seeing their dentist for non-emergency procedures again.

 

One dentist says she’s seen an increase in need for dental professionals during the pandemic because not every provider had their doors open.

 

During Shelter-in-Place, people could only see the dentist for emergencies. Dr. Rachelle Beebe says the best way to describe an emergency is if someone is feeling pain.

 

Beebe, a dentist at Moore Dentistry and Braces, was in the midst of opening a second dental practice, i240 Dental, before the pandemic started. The opening has been pushed back until May 4.

 

She says quarantine has made some people more aware of their dental health.

 

“Because we have so many people that came in during the pandemic in pain, and now we have so many people noticing during quarantine, they have a little pain when chewing or discomfort, it
