Interpreting Electrospray Mass Spectra
This site is a tutorial on interpretation of electrospray mass spectra of multiply charged molecules. It provides a simple explanation of the electrospray process and the potential for the creation of multiply charged species, especially when working with peptides. The mathematics of determining the charge state and molecular weight of the peptide is also explained. Although this site provides a good foundation on electrospray MS of peptides, students requiring an advanced understanding of MS

The Role of the Elementary Principal in Promoting Parent Involvement: Evidence from Rural, Blue Ribb
The reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary School Education Act has amplified the implications of including parents in the education process. The benefits of parental involvement coupled with the teachers' and parents’ role in promoting involvement have been researched and studied for many years. Few studies focus solely on the principal’s role in promoting parent involvement, however. This study will examine the specialized association and participation of rural elementary princ

Minority Health Facts IN RHODE ISLAND
This report provides information about major health indicators in the racial and ethnic minority populations of Rhode Island defined by the Office of Management and Budget (Directive 15) as: • African American/Black: A person having origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa. • Asian and Pacific Islander (API): A person having origins in the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, or the Pacific Islands. This area includes, for example, China, India, Japan, Vietnam, Cam
Health Disparities among Racial and Ethnic Groups in Rhode Island
The health of racial and ethnic minority populations has been a focus of public health for many years, due to the disparities in health status, exposure to health risks, and access to health care that are revealed when these populations are compared to the White, non-Hispanic population. At the national level, the impact of poor health on the quality and length of life for minority citizens was considered to be so fundamental that one of the three overarching goals of Healthy People 2000 was to
HEALTHY INDIANA – A MINORITY HEALTH PLAN FOR THE STATE OF INDIANA
We are proud to present the Healthy Indiana - Minority Health Plan for the State of Indiana. This is another significant step forward in addressing the health disparities of minorities in our state. In March 2002, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released a report with startling revelations about health care delivery for minorities. The report was titled "Unequal Treatment: What Healthcare Providers Need to Know About Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Healthcare." Not surprisingly, the IOM found t
The Interagency Council on Black and Minority Health 2007 Annual Report
We are pleased to present you with the Interagency Council on Black and Minority Health’s 2007 report. The report outlines key data findings of the council as well as three critical health focus areas to be addressed. These focus areas for improving minority health will act as a launching pad for action within Indiana on every level - residents, public health providers, community organizations, policymakers, and other stakeholders - to address health inequities and improve the health and envir
Oklahoma Task Force to Eliminate Health Disparities
In 2003 Senate Bill 680 created the Oklahoma Task Force to Eliminate Health Disparities. Initially, twelve members representing the Oklahoma Legislature and diverse members of Oklahoma’s population made up the Task Force. The Governor, President Pro Tempore of the Senate, Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the State Commissioner of Health each made three appointments. In 2004 an amendment to Senate Bill 680 added three new members to represent mental health concerns. The Task Force w
Minority Health in Nevada
Racial and ethnic minorities are disproportionately affected by health problems and disease in Nevada and throughout the nation. Minorities often have higher rates of infectious and chronic diseases due to a variety of reasons including the following factors: Socioeconomic Status: Socioeconomic status, which includes income, education, and occupation, is linked to poorer health outcomes, higher rates to disease and less availability, accessibility, affordability and utilization of care. Minoriti
Health Care Workforce and Other Initiatives to Assist Medically Underserved Communities and Populati
Section 32.1-122.22 of the Code of Virginia requires that the State Health Commissioner submit an annual report to the Governor and to the General Assembly regarding the activities of the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) in recruiting and retaining health care providers for underserved populations and areas throughout the Commonwealth. The annual report is required to include information on: (i) the activities and accomplishments during the reporting period; (ii) planned activities for the co
Florida Health Disparities Strategic Plan 2008-2011
The Florida Health Disparities Plan was commissioned to determine the extent of Florida's health disparities and to present a framework for reducing them. Disparities in cancer mortality, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and infant mortality are symptomatic of deeper problems that some minorities face. Conditions such as poor access to quality care, poverty, and low health literacy plague some minority communities - like the proverbial "troubled waters" of old. Lack of culturally competent healthcare provider
U.S. CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL & PREVENTION: Crack cocaine use reduces antiviral therapy use in wo
Crack cocaine use decreases adherence to antiretroviral treatment among HIV-infected Black women. "Since the appearance of crack cocaine in the 1980s, unprecedented numbers of women have become addicted. A disproportionate number of female crack users are Black and poor. We analyzed interview data of HIV-infected women greater than or equal to 18 years of age reported to 12 health departments between July 1997 and December 2000 to ascertain if Black women reported crack use more than other H
Steps still being taken to undo damage of America's Nuremberg
The year 1947 was a watershed for medical ethics and medical care. Fifty years ago, the Nuremberg Code, created in response to the atrocities of Nazi medicine, called for the informed consent of participants in human research. That same year, penicillin was recognized as the standard of care for syphilis. Researchers from the U.S. Public Health Service failed to connect these two milestones. They continued to conduct a long-running study in Tuskegee, Alabama, on the course of syphilis in untrea
The Tuskegee Legacy: AIDS and the Black Community
No scientific experiment inflicted more damage on the collective psyche of black Americans than the Tuskegee study. After Jean Heller broke the story in 1972, news of the tragedy spread in the black community. Confronted with the experiment's moral bankruptcy, many blacks lost faith in the government and no longer believed health officials who spoke on matters of public concern. Consequently, when a terrifying new plague swept the land in the 1980s and 1990s, the Tuskegee study predisposed many

THE PRESIDENT: Ladies and gentlemen, on Sunday, Mr. Shaw will celebrate his 95th birthday. (Applause.) I would like to recognize the other survivors who are here today and their families: Mr. Charlie Pollard is here. (Applause.) Mr. Carter Howard. (Applause.) Mr. Fred Simmons. (Applause.) Mr. Simmons just took his first airplane ride, and he reckons he's about 110 years old, so I think it's time for him to take a chance or two. (Laughter.) I'm glad he did. And Mr. Frederick Moss, thank you, sir.

Pregnancy Discovery and Acceptance Among Low-Income Primiparous Women: A Multicultural Exploration
As part of a larger study exploring psychosocial factors that influence self-care and use of health care services during pregnancy, we investigated the process of pregnancy discovery and acceptance among a culturally diverse group of women who had given birth to their first child in the year preceding data collection. Methods: Eighty-seven low-income women from four cultural groups (African American, Mexican, Puerto Rican, and white) participated in eight focus groups held in their communities.
