When ReACH Director Joel Tsevat, MD, MPH joined the faculty at UT Health San Antonio and Dell Medical School at UT Austin in the summer of 2017 he was fascinated by the emphasis on value-based health care in terms of providing care and teaching value-based concepts to students and residents.

On Friday, March 31st, Dr. Barbara J. Turner, the Director of the Center for Research to Advance Community Health (ReACH) was featured on the Texas Public Radio show Texas Standard to discuss a recently published study that looks at how much the Hispanic community knows about chronic pain.  

Hispanics’ knowledge of chronic pain shows gaps

Hispanics and other minorities are more likely to receive poor quality of care for chronic pain. A new survey of Hispanics’ knowledge about chronic pain reveals that, even with the painkiller-related deaths of celebrities such as Prince and Heath Ledger, most know little about chronic pain and its care, leaving them vulnerable to repeat the dangerous painkiller cycle.
