ReACH Director, Dr. Barbara J. Turner featured on Texas Public Radio's Texas Standard

On Friday, March 31st, Dr. Barbara J. Turner, the Director of the Center for Research to Advance Community Health (ReACH) will be 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.  Dr. Turner and her team conducted a population-based survey representing 8.8 million Hispanic residents of five Southwestern states who did not have chronic pain.  The data from this study reveal serious gaps in knowledge about chronic pain including misunderstanding about relying on narcotics to treat the disease. This is the first study to reveal poor knowledge about chronic pain in a large population of Americans and reinforces the urgency of launching a broad-based educational campaign about chronic pain and its care.

Advanced Primary Care - Health home implementation project through UHS

ReACH is developing a comprehensive, longitudinal database of patient health care services delivered by UHS and UT Medicine providers. The Center will augment these administrative data with primary data collected from patients and providers to create a unique research resource for studies of quality of care, health disparities, and innovative models of care. Center will also partner with other South Texas health care providers to evaluate effective models of care for their populations. Because San Antonio boasts one of the largest military complexes in the nation, a research partnership with the military will be a key focus of advancing the health of all residents of the Bexar County community.
