A new study based on the Between the Lines research project — a two-year project between researchers at Drexel University and the Mexico section of the US-Mexico Border Health Commission — offers perspectives on the discrimination and trauma felt by immigrant children amid anti-immigrant rhetoric and family separation policies from 2019-2021.
For people with chronic kidney disease, obesity can increase risks of kidney function decline and is associated with worse outcomes after kidney transplant surgery. But weight loss attempts must be managed with care to avoid […]
Obesity is a risk factor for end-stage kidney disease (ESKD), and it can prevent an ESKD patient from becoming eligible for a life-saving kidney transplant. New findings from researchers at Drexel’s College of Medicine, School of Public Health and College of Nursing and Health Professions – in conversations with patients and clinical teams – suggests that critical weight management conversations between patients and their care teams simply aren’t happening, and the communication breakdown doesn’t end there.

As the United States approaches nearly 100 million COVID-19 cases and the convergence of a widely reported “tripledemic” of COVID-19, the flu, and Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), this holiday season, policymakers should support paid sick leave policies to prevent the spread of infectious disease, say researchers at the Dornsife School of Public Health in a recently published paper in the journal Health Affairs.
What lessons have researchers learned about what makes someone more vulnerable to more severe COVID-19 if they become infected, and how can this improve care for patients with the disease? Some answers may be found in a study published in The Lancet’s eBioMedicine that offers some important insights into characteristics that are linked with more severe COVID cases, as well as those suffering from post-acute sequelae of COVID-19, commonly termed “long COVID.”
Thanks to a new study in Nature Immunology, researchers have gained insights into why some people develop immunity to a disease following vaccination, while others do not.
One of the lesser-known downstream consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic is an increase in screen time among Americans in every age category. Although lots of television watching, social media scrolling, and playing video games may […]
As many communities across the country struggle with rising violence, a team of researchers from Drexel’s Dornsife School of Public Health took a unique approach to better understand the experiences of victims of urban violence […]
The results, recently published in the journal Frontiers in Neuroergonomics, suggest that fNIRS-informed training can improve the way we evaluate individual performance for mission-critical essential workers.
