1. Butler, Eartha S. Normalization of Stressors among African American College and Graduate Students| Looking through a Cultural Lens.

Degree: 2018, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University

<b>Introduction:</b> Obtaining higher education increases the amount of stressors physically, mentally, and emotionally. College is more than parties, pledging, and freedom from authoritative figures. For many young adults, it is the time to learn independence, responsibility, and roads to success. Today’s students are making life-altering decisions under the influences and pressures of society. Coping with stress is just one of the challenges students will endure while in college. Stressors are often considered normal, and students may not immediately recognize certain stressors as being problematic. They may also fail to identity and differentiate between eustress and distress. <b>Purpose:</b> This exploratory study defines the role of stress in coping mechanisms (healthy and unhealthy decision making) as it relates to African American college students’ success (ability to strive academically) at Historically Black College and University (HBCU) and Predominantly White Institutions (PWI). <b>Methodology:</b> A mixed method research design was applied to determine the effects of culture on stressors and coping mechanisms of African American college and graduate students at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) and Florida State University (FSU). The <i> Transactional Model of Stress and Coping</i> framework was utilized to evaluate the processes of coping with stressful events. To ensure rigor and validity, the study was segmented into two phases, qualitative (Phase I) and quantitative (Phase II). Phase I consisted of the primary researcher transcribed 17 interviews. A second researcher reviewed and coded for themes. Phase II consisted of 300 student respondents to the College Student’s Stressful Event Checklist (CSSEC) and the Brief COPE (COPE) surveys. Descriptive statistical analyses were conducted for each variable using quantitative software, SPSS Statistics. A comprehensive analysis was conducted to identify new or merging themes bases on the research questions. <b>Results:</b> African American college and graduate students perceived both their susceptibility and severity to stress to result in negative outcomes (problems or health issues). The problems were categorized as maladaptive (overeating, smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol) and non-maladaptive (prayer, meditation, and exercising) behaviors. The health issues experienced, are listed as the following but not limited to: Unwanted pressure, feeling overwhelmed, tired, embarrassed, and symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). As an individuals’ perception of susceptibility and severity increased in regards to demographics so did their level of stress (CSSEC scoring). Although there was almost an even split about culture being an influence, it played a factor in normalizing stress. A positive relationship was discovered between a student’s academic matriculation (classification) and their amount of coping (COPE score). <b>Discussion/Conclusion:</b> The findings from phase…

2. Moore, Jaleesa. The Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Degree: 2018, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University

<b>Introduction:</b> During 2017, approximately 750,000 strokes occurred, of those approximately 140,000 people died from a stroke and <10% were also diagnosed with a hospital acquired condition. The economic burden associated with stroke care exceeds $34 billion; and hospitalizations with a hospital acquired condition increase costs. In the United States, differences in health outcomes have been documented; however, these studies show that sociodemographic differences continue to exist. The objectives of this study are to assess differences in clinical outcomes among the study population, and to assess if there are differences hospital charges. <b>Methods:</b> To investigate differences in outcomes and hospital charges among the study population, the 2001-2011 Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) database was used. Hospitalizations that occurred with a primary diagnosis of an ischemic stroke and a subsequent diagnosis of a hospital acquired condition were queried using ICD-9 codes. Additionally, the Elixhauser comorbidity index was used to identify comorbid conditions among individuals hospitalized. To assess the differences in outcomes and hospital charges chi-square, logistic regression, and hierarchical multilevel modeling procedures were used. All statistical analyses were performed using SAS 9.4. <b>Results:</b> The overall death rate has decreased among the study population; however, racial/ethnic differences exist in patient outcomes. When assessing hospital charges, hospitalizations that occurred in the Southern region of the United States were higher than hospitalizations that occurred in the Northwest region of the United States. <b>Conclusion:</b> Further analysis needs to be conducted to assess sociodemographic differences in clinical outcomes among the study population. There is a need to continue to identify sociodemographic groups with risks of mortality to better guide the funding opportunities to target these resources to populations that experience the worse health outcomes. Future studies should also assess the role of mental health, cultural competency, and care coordination to improve patient outcomes.

3. Stewart, Elizabeth C. African American Adolescent Male Perspectives of Fatherhood| A Qualitative Analysis.

Degree: 2018, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University

This project examines African American adolescent males’ perception of fatherhood by exploring the participants definition, assessing how personal experiences shape this definition and defining the external influencing factors and assess the influence of African American adult males who work with them in an employment or volunteer setting. The study occurred in two phases, the first was in-depth interviews with African American adult males and the second phase was focus groups of African American adolescent males. The definitions of fatherhood and masculinity were different among the study population. The adult males focused on traditional fatherhood and male roles using language that described actions and physical and personal attributes, while the adolescent males found their definitions of fatherhood and masculinity to be nearly the same, as they used traditional language to describe the role but contemporary language for their needs. Black masculinity, expectations of fathers and father figures, and influences were found to be the dominant themes that emerged in their perspectives. These findings indicate: the definitions provided were demanding and one could easily falter; all participants showed awe in the role; African American adolescents can understand and communicate their needs; and this research counters the narrative and negative imagery of Black fathers.
