This report examines the relationship between nutritional fitness and resilience, using key constructs found in the scientific literature that address self-regulation, positive affect, perceived control, self-efficacy, self-esteem, and optimism.
The DoD is one of the largest funders of research on suicide prevention but its current funding priorities do not reflect its research needs. Funding is overwhelmingly allocated to prevention goals already considered by experts to be effective while other goals receive little funding and are rarely studied.
The PROMIS Smoking Initiative developed an assessment toolkit that enables the measurement of current adult smokers' standing in domains of importance to smoking research, including nicotine dependence and using smoking to cope with stress.
Students have negative attitudes about school fountains. To increase overall water intake, it may be important to promote and improve drinking water sources not only at school but also at home and in other community environments.
Among high-risk youth, those who may be at increased risk for adverse alcohol and other drug (AOD) use outcomes may benefit from targeted prevention efforts; how youth acquire AOD may provide an objective means of identifying youth at elevated risk.
Just like U.S. civilians, those serving in the Air Force use the Internet, email, texting, and social media for entertainment and to stay in touch with friends and family. But technology use can be disruptive, and “addiction” could signal broader issues.
RAND researchers looking at the growth of obesity rates over time found that the epidemic has been fueled by historically low food prices relative to income and constant availability, which have driven high consumption.
The problem of obesity cannot be attributed to a single dietary or physiological factor, like too much sugar, too much fat, or even factors like viruses, bacteria, and endocrine disrupters. The real problem is that Americans now live in a food swamp and there is just too much food easily available.
Assesses the results of a statewide survey to determine language differences among California adults' exposure to suicide prevention messaging, confidence to intervene with someone at risk of suicide, and resource preferences.
The possible effects of families on health and mortality is an extremely complex topic. No single study or type of study is exactly a test of the argument. We need more studies that advance possible interpretations and describe patterns of associations in broad populations of interest.
Gaining a better understanding of the factors that influence the evidence-based treatment sustainment may lead to more effective dissemination strategies and ultimately improve the quality of care being delivered in community-based addiction treatment settings.
Initial findings suggest highly educated children contribute to the parents' longevity. Encouraging better parental health habits, providing access to resources and information, and delivering higher-quality care are some possible explanations for this correlation.
Increasing performance of public schools in low-income communities may be a powerful mechanism to decrease very risky health behaviors among low-income adolescents and to decrease health disparities across the life span.
