1. Ibrahim, Najla Sadik. Healthcare utilization practices among Somali adults in San Diego.

Degree: 2017, San Diego State University

The purpose of this study was to examine and understand the predisposing, enabling, and need characteristics of a cross-sectional sample of Somalis living in San Diego with regards to their utilization of healthcare services. More specifically, to address if there are health disparities among Somalis with respect to healthcare utilization and what barriers exist that contribute to these disparities. The guiding framework for this study is Andersen???s Behavioral Model of Health Services Use, and followed a mixed methods research design . The sample population consisted of 40 self-identified ethnic Somalis that were 18 years of age or older, and were recruited through convenience and snowball sampling. Quantitative data was collected through a questionnaire based on the 2013-2014 California Health Interview Surveys Questionnaire (CHIS) and 2015 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) (UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, 2015; National Center for Health Statistics, 2016). The qualitative data was gathered through focus group interviews. The quantitative data was analyzed by using descriptive statistics that measure frequency and chi square test of association; whereas the qualitative data was audio recorded, transcribed, and thematically coded based on the constructs of the theoretical model. The factors that were found to be most significant in explaining the healthcare utilization of the sample was: age, country of birth, legal status, location of care, being diagnosed with a health condition, last routine check-up, having a main provider, employment, health status, and need for language assistance. The focus group interviews highlighted the following factors as significant: gender, language, beliefs about health, beliefs about the healthcare system, expectations of the healthcare system, religious health beliefs, the qualities and characteristics of the provider, affordability, and location of care; perceived need as significant. These factors can serve as barriers to using healthcare services and contributes significantly to the observed health disparities in this population.

2. Burdeaux, Jennifer Rose. The use of emergency contraception by a group of women ages 16-25 in San Diego.

Degree: 2016, San Diego State University

Unintended pregnancy continues to be a focus of public health efforts in the United States. The purpose of this study was to identify characteristics that contribute to the use of emergency contraception by women who utilize Planned Parenthood for their contraception needs. Emergency contraception is underutilized and further education could assist in preventing unintended pregnancy. This study reviewed data from a telephone survey 6 months after an initial Planned Parenthood clinic visit from February 2006 to January 2007. The participants were ages 16-25 at the time of survey, with the final sample including 50 women. SPSS 22 was used to analyze the data, and statistical analyses included descriptive statistics (e.g., frequencies), chi-square tests, and Fisher???s exact test. This study found a statistically significant association between education level and the use of emergency contraception. Also, a statistically significant association between race/ethnicity and the use of emergency contraception was found among this group of women. This particular research will be helpful for developing education efforts and public health interventions to minority patients and patients with low levels of education. Advisors/Committee Members: Social Work, Public Health, Stoskopf, Carleen, Packard, Tom, Li, Yawen.

3. Suzuki, Yukari. Health and wellbeing of older adults In The United States and Japan : a comparative study.

Degree: 2016, San Diego State University

The global population is projected to reach 9.1 billion in 2050 due to an increase in the number of older adults. Older adults are living longer; however, life expectancy values vary by country. While a country???s degree of economic development is a contributor to the health of its national population, life expectancy varies among economically developed countries as well. Social engagement has been studied as a factor contributing to longevity and the health of older adults. According to the convoy model of social relations, family members begin to play an increasingly integral role in the lives of older adults as they age. Literature has demonstrated preventive benefits of family engagement for the physical, psychological, and cognitive health of older adults. However, family engagement has also been linked to low health among older adults as a means of accommodating functional decline. Cultural values and attitudes have been shown to influence family engagement behaviors as well in both individualist and collectivist nations. This study examined the association of family engagement and self-rated health status (SHS) of older adults (ages 50 to 75 years) in the United State and Japan through a secondary cross-sectional analysis of the 2008 wave of the Health and Retirement Study and the 2007 Japanese Study of Aging and Retirement. Logistic regression found SHS, frequency of family engagement, and proximity of children???s residence to be significantly associated with the survey country. In the combined sample, family contact of at least once a week (OR: 1.9, 95% CI: 1.0-3.5), residence within 10 miles of their children (OR: 0.8, 95% CI: 0.7-1.0), and residence with children (OR: 0.6, 95% CI: 0.5-0.7) were significantly associated with SHS, even after controlling for age, gender, ethnicity, marital status, income, and comorbidities. Future research may consider a longitudinal analysis to observe whether family engagement demonstrates protective factors for maintaining high SHS over time. While these national surveys had been modeled after each other, increasing alignment of survey instruments for improved equivalence and comparability would strengthen the internal and external validity of findings.
