Disparities in Genetic Referrals for Breast Cancer among the Asian Immigrant Populations: How Can We Eliminate Them?

Authors: Sailaja Kamaraju, MD, MS, Amanda Jacquart, MS, CGC, Samantha Stachowiak, MS, CGC, Jennifer Geurts, MS, CGC, Morgan Depas, MS, CGC, Jessica Olson, PhD, MPH, Lubna Chaudhary, MD, MS, Christopher Chitambar, MD, Joan Neuner, MD, MPH and Yee Chung Cheng, MD

Abstract: Despite major advances in genetic testing for breast cancer, access to genetic counseling and testing are significantly lower among immigrant and refugee populations. Both patient related barriers and provider-based factors contribute to disparities in genetic referrals and testing. Previous studies addressing genetic referral patterns among the minorities have focused on African Americans, however, there are no reports addressing disparities in genetic referrals and testing in Asian immigrant and refugee populations living in the United States (US).

The Prevalence Rate of Cigarette Smoking among Congestive Heart Failure Patients at a Local Family Health Center

Authors: Salome Kapella-Mshigeni, Eunice Kimunai and Chad L Cross

Abstract: The prevalence rate of smoking is well documented in the general population, but little is known among patients with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). The mortality rate of CHF in San Bernardino county is nearly double (18.7 per 100,000 deaths) than that of the State of California (10.8 per 100,000 deaths). There is a need to fill knowledge gaps for CHF patients and identify evidence-based interventions that will help reduce health disparities among populations.
