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.

Partnerships

ReACH features a partnership with the University Health System (UHS), a comprehensive health care system that focuses on meeting the health care needs of all residents of Bexar County.

Through the UHS's contract with CareLink, a financial assistance program for thousands of uninsured persons in Bexar County that is supported by county taxes, UHS is well positioned to become an Accountable Care Organization for low income persons with the potential to increase the value of taxpayer dollars by investing in comprehensive, coordinated primary care.
