Asthma, Contextual Stress, and CBPR: Engaging Community and Healthcare Provider Perceptions of Contextual Influences on Childhood Asthma through Concept Mapping Apr 02, 2012 from 03:00 PM to 04:30 PM Bondurant Hall, 4074,
Disproportionately high asthma morbidity and mortality exists among socioeconomically disadvantaged children living in urban areas. Growing evidence shows that exposure to chronic stress predicts future asthma exacerbations in children. However, the influence of neighborhood-level factors on stress and asthma morbidity among urban youth remains poorly understood. This mixed methods study utilized concept mapping methods to engage residents of two underserved communities as well as primary healthcare practitioners to identify and prioritize neighborhood factors that may influence, positively or negatively, childhood asthma. Findings provide key insight to breadth and influence of the impact of diverse social and structural influences upon childhood asthma and asthma disparities. Results will generate testable hypotheses regarding neighborhood influences on childhood asthma care and inform the design of behavioral and public health asthma care and control programs for youth.
Animal Study Support and Imaging Resources at UNC Apr 02, 2012 from 12:30 PM to 02:00 PM Bioinformatics Auditorium,
The small animal imaging core provides advanced in vivo imaging on animals, including MRI, PET, SPECT, CT, ultrasound, and optical imaging, with the state-of-the-art instrumentation and experienced staff. The talk will be focusing on applications of these imaging techniques for a wide range of biomedical research including cancer, cardiovascular, neuroscience, and other research studies that can be benefit from imaging tools. The Animal Studies Core makes available a central facility staffed by skilled technicians to promote reproducible experimentation in laboratory animals for UNC Investigators. This presentation will detail the services we provide to the research community.
