Comparative De Novo Transcriptome Assembly of RNA-seq Data using Two Commercial Software Programs.

Calif J Health Promot 2018 Jun;16(1):46-53

Department of Biological Science, California State University Fullerton.

Background And Purpose: The reduction of cost and ease of using core laboratories or commercial sequencing companies have allowed biomedical and health researchers alike to employ reference-based genomic or transcriptomic sequencing (RNA-seq) projects to expand their work. Non-reference based data analysis, in cases of inexperienced researchers, become more challenging despite the availability of many open source and commercial software programs.

Methods: We performed de novo assembly of RNA-seq data obtained from a non-model organism (Eastern Newt skin) to compare data output of two commercially available software workflows. Read More

The Effects of Age, Mental Health, and Comorbidity on the Perceived Likelihood of Hiring a Healthcare Advocate.

Calif J Health Promot 2016 ;14(3):45-57

San Diego State University, Department of Psychology.

Background And Purpose: The projected increase in chronically ill older adults may overburden the healthcare system and compromise the receipt of quality and coordinated health care services. Healthcare advocates (HCAs) may help to alleviate the burden associated with seeking and receiving appropriate health care. We examined whether having dementia or depression, along with hypertension and arthritis, or having no comorbid medical conditions, and being an older adult, affected the perceived likelihood of hiring an HCA to navigate the health care system.

Calif J Health Promot 2014 ;12(3):35-45

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Digital media are often used to encourage smoking cessation by increasing quitline call volume through direct promotion to smokers or indirect promotion to smoker proxies. The documentation of a program's experiences utilizing digital media is necessary to develop both the knowledge base and a set of best practices. This case study highlights the use of digital media in a proxy-targeted campaign to promote the California Smokers' Helpline to health care professionals from October 2009 to September 2012.

Calif J Health Promot 2013 Sep;11(2):21-31

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, 1100 Fairview Avenue, Seattle, WA 98109.

We implemented a home-based group educational intervention in the form of home health parties (HHPs) among Hispanic men and women in the Lower Yakima Valley of Washington State led by trained bilingual and compared participants' baseline and follow-up responses to questions related to communications about CRC screening. We also documented participants perceptions of the CRC related educational information presented as measures of effectiveness of the HHPs as well as possible indicators of their intentions to engage in timely CRC screenings. The group based educational sessions resulted in positive participants' perceptions about the benefits of the CRC related information and in improved communications about CRC screening. Read More

The causes of cancer health disparities amongst Pacific Islanders and other racial groups are complex and multifactorial. Both biologic and non biologic determinants have been identified as causal factors. Racial/ethnic classification can be used as a surrogate for non biologic determinants such as place of geographic origin, socioeconomic status, cultural practices, and diet. Read More

Pacific Islander Health Partnership.

Relatively little attention has been paid in the literature to strategies promoting the health of Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander (NHPI) men. To fill this void, a Native Hawaiian cancer survivor and a Marshallese minister in Orange County, California, founded the Kane Group to promote men's health information and support. This group is comprised of 10 to 15 NHPI men, ages 35 to 83, with a diverse background of experiences in the U. Read More

Following the goals of Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR), this paper describes how Native Hawaiian values emerged as a methodology for the conduct of a study with Native Hawaiians residing in Southern California. The equitable placing of community values side by side with scientific values show that community concepts can parallel and extend CBPR premises and are more than a variable to be added in the analysis. The community partners, whose voices guide this paper, introduced the values associated with the concepts of "aloha," "mālama," "maihilahila," "na'auao," and "ano ano hua. Read More
