“Understanding the Relationship between Social Factors, Physical Activity, and Obesity in Hispanics/Latinos”

Presented by:

Rosenda Murillo, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of Preventive Medicine

 

Obesity is a risk factor for chronic disease (i.e., heart disease) and the burden of obesity is not shared equally across the US population. Physical inactivity is a risk factor for obesity; however, high physical inactivity rates are observed in Hispanics/Latinos compared to other ethnic groups. Family-based interventions may be appropriate for physical activity promotion in Hispanics/Latinos.

Description:

“Exploring the Relationship between Positive Psychological Well-being and Cardiovascular Health in Underserved Populations ”

Presented by:

Rosalba Hernandez, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of Preventive Medicine

 

Abstract: The field of psychology has historically focused on psychological ill-being and pathology, e.g., depressive symptoms, but a paradigm shift has occurred whereby interest has been shifted to psychological well-being and the related constructs of optimism, happiness, and resilience. In this presentation, using data from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) and the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL), Dr. Hernandez will share research finding on the association between optimism and cardiovascular health, particularly as it pertains to Hispanics/Latinos. She will then describe a current pilot study that aims to conceptualize psychological well-being in low-income Hispanics/Latinos with the purpose of developing a 12-week positive psychology intervention to improve cardiovascular health.

Description:

Is there a role for beta-blockers in the management of primary hypertension?

 

Presented by:

Lars H. Lindholm, PhD

 Professor, Department of Public Health and Clinical Medicine

Umeå University, Sweden

 

Lars H Lindholm is the senior author of the chapter on Beta-blockers in "HYPERTENSION - a Companion to Braunwald's Heart Disease", 2nd edition, published in 2013. In Chicago, he will discuss data on clinical epidemiology of blood pressure lowering treatment with beta-blockers as well as some mechanisms which could explain their suboptimal effect on the incidence of stroke.
