4062.0 Disease Prevention and Management

Tuesday, November 9, 2010: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
This session presents the findings from one ongoing quasi experimental study focusing on a church based diabetes education and physical activity program and three completed research studies. Presentations will discuss the findings from a retrospective study that examined the needs of youth who are infected with HIV as they transition into adult health care, a randomize clinical trial that sought to understand the relationship between maternal health beliefs and medication adherence in asthmatic children, and a quasi experimental study that examined interventions to reduce post partum smoking relapse.
Session Objectives: Identify the public health needs of the specific populations in each study. Describe the study design and evaluate the outcomes to date in each study.
