Article
The Hispanic population is growing rapidly in U.S. rural states, yet limitations in Spanish-speaking behavioural health providers are a barrier to accessing care. In Montana, a new immigrant destination, mental health disparities may not yet be fully understood. We describe an interprofessional approach of nurses and engineers using the Plan-Do-Che...
Article
Introduction: In 2020, 18.4% of Hispanics experienced mental illness, yet only about a third received treatment compared with nearly half of non-Hispanic Whites. In Montana, where only 11% of the mental health needs are currently met, service utilization is low. The purpose of this study was to determine the perceptions of the Hispanic immigrant p...

Despite recommendations to maintain hydration, workers likely do not drink enough to protect their renal function. Additionally, new research suggests that rehydration with sugary beverages adds additional risk to kidneys already stressed by hig...
Article
Background: Kidney damage is associated with an increased workload in high ambient temperatures and may represent a pathway to chronic kidney disease of unknown origin in agricultural workers. We tested the associations of workload and heat with acute kidney dysfunction in California agricultural workers. Methods: We recruited a convenience samp...

Principal among them is diabetes, and the prevalence of diagnosed and undiagnosed diabetes is difficult to estimate. In a convenience sample of 579 agricultural workers recruited through the California Heat Illness Prevention Study (C...
Article
Background Agricultural work can expose workers to increased risk of heat strain and volume depletion due to repeated exposures to high ambient temperatures, arduous physical exertion and limited rehydration. These risk factors may result in acute kidney injury (AKI). Methods We estimated AKI cumulative incidence in a convenience sample of 283 agr...

Article
We examined pediatric insurance status and receipt of weight-related anticipatory guidance in the 2008-2010 Medical Expenditures Panel Survey (n = 12 438). Hispanic children were more likely than white children to report diet and exercise counseling, regardless of insurance. Given the risks of overweight and obesity among Hispanic children, these f...
