Race unmasked : biology and race in the twentieth century by Michael Yudell( )

20 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 1,603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Race, while drawn from the visual cues of human diversity, is an idea with a measurable past, an identifiable present, and an uncertain future. The concept of race has been at the center of both triumphs and tragedies in American history and has had a profound effect on the human experience. 'Race Unmasked' revisits the origins of commonly held beliefs about the scientific nature of racial differences, examines the roots of the modern idea of race, and explains why race continues to generate controversy as a tool of classification even in our genomic age.0Surveying the work of some of the twentieth century’s most notable scientists, 'Race Unmasked' reveals how genetics and related biological disciplines formed and preserved ideas of race and, at times, racism. A gripping history of science and scientists, 'Race Unmasked' elucidates the limitations of a racial worldview and throws the contours of our current and evolving understanding of human diversity into sharp relief
Welcome to the genome : a user's guide to the genetic past, present, and future by Rob DeSalle( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2020 in English and held by 1,260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Welcome to the Genome takes you right into the thick of today's most cutting-edge science and its far-reaching implications. Authors Rob DeSalle and Michael Yudell have written a book which clearly explains the ongoing saga of our attempts to understand the mystery of biology's Rosetta Stone and use its code to better our lives." "This book employs an understandable style and full-color illustrations to provide insights into the complex science involved. It delves into the past discoveries that led to the sequencing of the human genome; it presents the challenges facing today's scientists and society and culture in general; and it considers the future possibilities of the developing genome era. Social issues, particularly questions of ethics, receive special attention, covering an important area too often overshadowed by science and technology."--Jacket

Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Mammogram Frequency Among Women With Intellectual Disabilities : An Exploratory Mixed Methods Approach by Evelyn Arana( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background: Women with intellectual disabilities (ID) have fewer mammograms compared to women without ID and are diagnosed with breast cancer at later stages. Little information exists on the impact of having an ID and being a member of a racial/ethnic minority group on mammography. This study examined the relationship between mammogram frequency and race/ethnicity among women with ID. Methods: This study used a mixed methods design to explore relationships between mammogram frequency and race/ethnicity among women with ID. Data came from mammogram medical records and in-depth interviews. Mammogram medical record data was collected from years 2010-2013 from a sample of 95 participants. Interviews were conducted in person with a sub-sample of 30 participants, including the women themselves or their caregiver. Multinomial logistic regression was used to model the relationship of mammogram frequency and race/ethnicity while holding possible confounders constant. Qualitative data was analyzed using thematic analysis in Atlas.ti. Results: A total of 95 individuals participated in the study. Participants who live in a state-funded residence, are over age 50 and have a mild or moderate ID impairment are more likely to undergo mammography compared to participants living with family or alone, are 50 years or less, and have a severe ID impairment. Non-Hispanic Black (NHB) women with ID were more likely than non-Hispanic White women with ID to be screened at least biennially than insufficiently. From the qualitative data, the most prominent barriers reported by participants included less health coordination support and lack of accessible mammogram machines. Reported facilitators included having positive mammogram attitudes and receiving support from healthcare professionals. Conclusions: This study provides evidence that mammogram disparities exist among women with ID, which should be explored further in a larger sample. This study highlights the need to implement care coordination services for women with ID who live with family or alone. These results may be considered when planning interventions to enhance the quality of healthcare for this population.

Theoretical Foundation of iPledge Campaign by Aju Eluvathingal( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background: The iPledge Campaign is a 'Women Against Abuse' initiative. This campaign originated in response to the rising incidence of domestic violence in Philadelphia. It embodies the mission of 'Women Against Abuse', by raising awareness of the prevalence and impact of abusive relationships, in order to prevent domestic violence. Objectives: Women Against Abuse wanted to provide a strong theoretical foundation for the iPledge campaign so that it could be studied by other organizations and replicated as per the requirement in different settings. Methods: Researched the existing health behavior theories used to influence the community to bring about the desired change in behavior, through literature review. A detailed understanding of the functioning of the iPledge campaign was taken into consideration to outline the theoretical foundation of this campaign. Results and Conclusion: The iPledge campaign has its concepts rooted in the different theories. This campaign integrates the concepts of Theory of Planned Behavior, Social Cognitive Theory, and Social Marketing Theory. The iPledge campaign attempts to bring about a change in the society by disseminating information, raising the awareness and getting the people actively involved in the cause for domestic violence victims
