AAMC Calls for FDA to Seek Broader, Long-Term Engagement with Diverse Populations

Building and sustaining trust should be the first step to improve the representation of diverse communities in research that the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) uses as the basis for regulatory and other decisions, according to AAMC testimony presented at a recent hearing on the topic. The FDA Office of Minority Health held the daylong session to hear public comments on the challenges of collection, analysis, and availability of demographic data, such as sex, race, ethnicity, or age, in applications for approval of FDAregulated medical products. In her presentation, Ann C. Bonham, Ph.D., AAMC chief scientific officer, proposed strategies for improving enrollment of individuals from diverse communities, and better communication about research results and newly approved health products for affected populations. “This is a marathon, not a sprint, and boom-bust engagement with communities linked to funding will undermine developing effective partnerships for minority groups to benefit from discoveries.” To read more, visit www.aamc.org/advocacy/.


Clinical Care Innovation Challenge Award Winners Announced

Ten awardees of the AAMC’s Clinical Care Innovation Challenge have been selected, including five Challenge Award winners and five Pilot Project winners. The challenge recognizes teaching hospitals and medical schools that have implemented—or are developing—programs to address clinical care innovations that integrate education and research to improve value and quality. Proposals were accepted in key areas, including innovations in new models of care delivery, payment, primary care delivery, and graduate medical education training. All awardees will be recognized at the AAMC’s 2014 Integrating Quality Meeting: Improving Value through Clinical Transformation, Education, and Science, on June 12–13 in Rosemont, Ill. Meeting registration is now open.


Upcoming Webinar on Teaching for Quality Faculty Development Program

The AAMC will host a free informational webinar about Teaching for Quality (Te4Q), a new faculty development certificate program that trains clinical faculty how to teach quality improvement and patient safety to medical students, residents, and other clinicians. The webinar will provide background on Te4Q, including how the need for the program was identified, how it works, how other organizations have implemented the program, and how to get involved. The webinar, “Why Teaching for Quality (Te4Q): Closing the Education Gap in Quality Improvement and Patient Safety,” will be held April 29 at 2:00 p.m. EDT. To register, visit the webinar website.


Academic Medicine Issues New Call for Papers on the Future of GME

The journal is seeking submissions for an upcoming collection focused on the current challenges to graduate medical education (GME), and effective solutions for overcoming these challenges and optimizing the education of residents and fellows. Submissions are due Aug. 1. For more information, read the complete call for papers. The journal’s 2014 Question of the Year is also related to GME: How can we ensure that our graduate medical education system will prepare trainees for practice in new systems of care delivery? Responses are due May 1.


On the Move

Petra Kaufmann, M.D., M.Sc., will serve as director of the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) Division of Clinical Innovation, beginning May 4.

Diabetes has become more vexing for primary care physicians to manage because of the emphasis today on measuring performance and improving outcomes. No matter how diligently physicians monitor patients' diabetes and how compliant patients are, HbA1c levels will fluctuate, the disease will progress and complications will occur, notes Misha Denham, DO.

8.  Exposure to smog is likened to sunburn in your lungs.  

Sierra Club - Explore, enjoy and protect the planet

Dear Stan,

Tell the EPA:
Protect our kids from bad air!


Take action

Take action

 

Can you imagine getting a sunburn inside your lungs?

It sounds awful -- and for thousands of children in America, it is an awful reality every year. That's what it's like when they breathe smog.1

Take action to make sure the EPA protects our communities -- and our kids -- from dangerous smog pollution.

Smog isn't just the brown haze that destroys views; it's one of the most dangerous pollutants to come from burning fossil fuels.

When smog gets heavy and chokes our air, we breathe big lungfuls of ozone that trigger tens of thousands of asthma attacks and send tens of thousands of children to the emergency room every year.

Tell the EPA that we need strong protections against smog, and we need them right away.

Coal-burning power plants are one of the biggest contributors to America's smog problem, and it shouldn't surprise you to learn that Big Coal doesn't think there's a problem at all. Even when schools close and red air alerts are issued across the country, they go on claiming that coal plants shouldn't be required to reduce their air pollution.

I don't know how they ignore that their smokestacks are sending kids to the emergency room day after day, year after year.

Don't let Big Coal's lobbyists get the last word on smog. Tell the EPA that you want them to protect our kids -- and all of us -- from smog!

Thank you for all you do,

Mary Anne Hitt
Beyond Coal Campaign Director

P.S. Six messages are more powerful than one! After you take action, forward this message to five of your friends and family or share it on Facebook and Twitter.

University of Vermont Announces New Master of Public Health Program
Online degree program admitting for Fall 2014 and can be completed in 2 years

 

http://img.constantcontact.com/letters/images/1101116784221/S.gif

 

The University of Vermont has announced a new Master of Public Health program, a collaborative graduate program between the College of Medicine, the Graduate College at UVM, and Continuing and Distance Education. The new 42-credit online Master's program was approved by the UVM Board of Trustees in February and is now open for Fall 2014 admission.The University of Vermont has announced a new Master of Public Health program, a collaborative graduate program between the College of Medicine, the Graduate College at UVM, and Continuing and Distance Education. The new 42-credit online Master's program was approved by the UVM Board of Trustees in February and is now open for Fall 2014 admission.

 

"UVM's leadership in interdisciplinary and health care education, along with our close affiliation with Fletcher Allen Health Care, make the university a strong choice for public health students," said Jan K. Carney, MD, MPH, Associate Dean for Public Health at the College of Medicine and Program Director for public health graduate programs. "Our faculty have depth of knowledge and experience in public health, and this new graduate program offered online will appeal to a diverse cohort of public health students from around the globe - including medical and nursing students, researchers and health care professionals."

 

Graduate students accepted into the program, which will start this summer, will have the opportunity to explore current public health and health policy issues while gaining a strong foundation in population health sciences. The study of public health - including the implementation of prevention measures, the promotion of healthy behaviors, and research into global and community health - spans a variety of academic disciplines and professions, from epidemiology and biostatistics to environmental public health and health policy. "UVM is committed to providing innovative, high-quality programming to engage students both here in Vermont and from national and international markets," said Cynthia Belliveau, EdD, MPA, Dean of Continuing and Distance Education. "The Master of Public Health is a perfect fit with our expertise and the increasing need for public health professionals around the world. Offering this degree in an online format will appeal to prospective students who are seeking an academically rigorous program that is also flexible."

 

Students in the Master of Public Health program can complete the degree requirements within two years as a full-time student, and five years as a part-time student. The program is designed for medical and graduate students, health professionals in all disciplines, public health professionals, researchers, and others who wish to increase their knowledge in public health. In addition to enhancing careers in public health practice and health professions, the program also prepares graduates for advanced study at the doctoral level.

 

The new Master of Public Health is the first online public health graduate program in the state of Vermont. UVM currently offers an online Certificate of Graduate Study in Public Health. Students from the certificate program may transfer their credits upon acceptance into the master's program.

 

The UVM Master of Public Health program is now open for Fall 2014 admission. Courses are available this summer and may be transferred into the MPH program in the fall. For more information, click here.
