NIH Funds Research to See if Gut Microbiomes of Hispanics/Latinos Influence Their Diabetes Risk

Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine have received a five-year, $3.9 million National Institutes of Health grant to investigate the role of the gut microbiome in the development of type 2 diabetes among Hispanics/Latinos, the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population. Hispanics in the U.S. have a 66 percent higher rate of diabetes than non-Hispanic whites (11.8 percent versus 7.1 percent). Since therapies can alter the microbiome in the gut, the research could lead to strategies for preventing and treating diabetes. Einstein co-principal investigators on the grant are Robert C. Kaplan, Ph.D., and Robert D. Burk, M.D., Rob Knight, Ph.D. at University of California San Diego is also a co-principal investigator.

Working Mothers Most in Need of Social Support Are Less Likely to Receive It

A new study links nonstandard work schedules to weaker private safety nets, particularly for African-Americans, the less educated and those who don't work 9-to-5. However, there also is evidence that switching from a standard to a nonstandard schedule increases the safety net. These mixed results suggest that the working mothers most in need social support are the least likely to actually have access to it.

One Hundred Years in the Making: A Space That Pays Homage to African-American History and Culture

2016AK11_221.jpg

Troy, N.Y. — More than a century after black Civil War veterans began imagining a monument to honor the civic contributions of African-Americans, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African-American life, history, and culture, will officially open its doors. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute President Shirley Ann Jackson is one of several notable guests who will speak during the Sept. 24 grand opening dedication ceremony for the museum. NMAAHC was established by an act of Congress in 2003, establishing it as part of the Smithsonian Institution, following decades of efforts to promote and highlight the contributions of African-Americans. The outdoor ceremony begins with a “gathering and musical prelude” at 8 a.m. The dedication of the newest museum is set for 10 a.m. The ceremony will be live-streamed on the Internet at nmaahc.si.edu.
