Intradisciplinary Boundaries and Cross-Cultural Communication Among Chronic Disease Epidemiologists Presented by Laura Senier, MPH, PhD 2011-01-31 The Panic Virus: A True Story of Science, Medicine and Fear <p> From a press release about &quot;The Panic Virus&quot;: Mnookin explains how dishonest researchers and snake-oil salesmen have taken advantage of desperate parents, and how the media - by ignoring facts and pretending that all points of view are equally valid - has through irresponsible coverage fueled a controversy that never should have arisen in the first place. He explores how cultural relativism and insular online communities have blurred the distinction between facts and feelings to the point that the traditional American ethos of individualism has been transformed into one in which individualized notions of reality, no matter how bizarre or irrational, are repeatedly validated. In addition, he gives readers fresh and fascinating insights into the scientific process, the nature of knowledge, and the subconscious forces that drive much of our daily lives.</p>Presented by Seth Mnookin 2011-01-27 Providing Culturally Sensitive Care/Education for Latinos Presented by Patricia Tellez-Giron, MD 2010-04-21 Healthy Climate for LGBT Youth and Others Presented by Bonnie Augusta; Brian Juchems 2010-04-21 Environmental Determinants of Health Mosquito-parasite Interactions and the Global Elimination of Human Lymphatic Filariasis by Sara Erickson, PhD Candidate and Bruce Christensen, PhD; Dept. of Pathobiological Sciences The Rhythm of the Rains: Seasonal Effects on Child Health in The Gambia by Benjamin Schwab, PhD Candidate and Coauthor: Ousman Gajigo Can Recent Infection with H1 or H3 Seasonal Influenza Virus Protect Macaques Against 2009 H1N1 Challenge? by Ben Wolter, Graduate Student Epidemiological and Microbiological Analysis of Drinking Water Quality in the Kimana Fenced Area, Kajiado District, Kenya by Jonathan Strong, MD Candidate Engineering and Health Projects in Rural Haiti by Eyleen Chou, BS StudentPresented by Sara Erickson, PhD Candidate; Bruce Christensen, PhD; Benjamin Schwab, PhD Candidate; Ben Wolter; Jonathan Strong, MD Candidate; Eyleen Chou 2010-02-03 Culturally Competent Approaches to Healthcare Presented by Shiva Bidar-Sielaff, MA 2009-12-08 Suicide Risk Assessment - Latina Case <p> The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Department of Psychiatry show a socio-cultural approach to suicide risk assessment.

Lancaster has the oldest and one of the largest communities of Older Order Amish in this country. As an outgrowth of their religious beliefs and heritage, the Amish chose to remain separate from the mainstream, and thus constitute an ethnically, culturally and genetically distinct population. The interactions between the Amish community and the surrounding modern world (the "English" as the Amish refer) are complex and often puzzling to those of us not of the Amish community. Eastman has spent part of his career working to understand the beliefs and practices of this community, particularly those that might impact on Amish attitudes about health care. In particular he has worked with Holmes Mort on and Kevin Strauss at the Clinic for Special Children (Strasburg PA) in the study of the metabolic and genetic diseases that are common in the Amish and Mennonite communities. This unique practice setting, built and financially supported by the Amish, blends effective therapy, compassionate care, and cutting-edge metabolic and genetic research in the ultimate translational model. Eastman currently works on continuing to bridge the divide between rural communities in both the medical and legal setting, and further investigating the diseases and health needs specific to the Amish ad Mennonite populations.Presented by James T.
