Kaiser Permanente Northern California’s Colorectal Cancer Screening Program Saves Lives

Kaiser Permanente members in Northern California are 52 percent less likely to die from colorectal cancer since the health care system launched a comprehensive, organized screening program, according to a new study in the specialty’s top journal, Gastroenterology.

“Since we launched our screening program we have seen a remarkable decline in the number of cases of colorectal cancer and related deaths across a large, diverse population,” said gastroenterologist and co-lead author Theodore R. Levin, MD, clinical lead for Kaiser Permanente’s colorectal cancer screening in Northern California.

The study, “Effects of Organized Colorectal Cancer Screening on Cancer Incidence and Mortality in a Large, Community-based Population,” confirms that since Kaiser Permanente Norther California’s screening program for colorectal cancer was rolled out between 2006 and 2008, screening completion as recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force increased to 83 percent among those eligible (adults 50 to 75 years old) by 2015, compared to 66 percent nationally. In that same timeframe, new cases of colorectal cancer in the United States dropped 26 percent.

Researchers compared the periods before and after the organized Kaiser Permanente screening program was rolled out between 2006 and 2008. The study found that mortality from colorectal cancer decreased 52.4 percent from approximately 31 deaths to 15 deaths per 100,000 people; and the incidence fell 25.5 percent from approximately 96 cases to 71 cases per 100,000 people.

“This most recent study is the culmination of more than two decades of groundbreaking Kaiser Permanente research and clinical care initiatives. It provides evidence for dramatic improvements to colorectal cancer screening by having an organized approach to making sure people get screened,” said The Permanente Medical Group gastroenterologist and co-lead author Douglas A. Corley, MD, PhD.

Screening saves lives

Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimates more than 140,000 new cases will be diagnosed in the U.S. this year, and it’s expected to cause more than 50,000 deaths during 2018.

Fortunately, regular screening allows for the early detection of colorectal cancers and polyps that can become colorectal cancer. Cancer detected early is more likely to be cured and removing polyps early can prevent the development of colorectal cancer.

  • Fecal testing (such as with the fecal immunochemical test or “FIT”), every year
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy every 5 years, and/or
  • Colonoscopy every 10 years

After a positive fecal test or sigmoidoscopy, physicians order a colonoscopy, the procedure that examines the full colon and can remove polyps.

Drs. Levin and Corley, both research scientists with the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research, noted that Kaiser Permanente has conducted, and continues to conduct, critical research on all three of these methods, with important studies dating back to the 1980s.

“Colonoscopy has long been an effective screening tool for colorectal cancer, but it can be expensive and time-consuming to deliver in large populations, and many people are unwilling to undergo the test,” Dr. Levin said. “We have found that Kaiser Permanente members are more than willing to be screened with the FIT kit, which has greatly contributed to our high screening rates.”

An initial Kaiser Permanente research goal — led by James Allison, MD, FACP, an emeritus research scientist in the Division of Research — was to generate evidence that the guaiac-based fecal occult blood test and/or sigmoidoscopy conducted in large, average-risk populations could save lives and decrease the incidence of colorectal cancer.

The Division of Research conducted landmark studies on the use of flexible sigmoidoscopy, which began at Kaiser Permanente facilities in the mid-1990s; these studies formed the basis for U.S. Preventive Services Task Force guideline recommendations.

In 1996, Kaiser Permanente conducted the first U.S. study showing that FIT kits had superior performance characteristics to the fecal occult blood test. A 2007 study provided evidence used by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force to recommend FITs as a screening option in their guidelines. And a recent multicenter study within Kaiser Permanente was the first large U.S. study to estimate the effectiveness of colonoscopy for reducing deaths from colorectal cancer. (Although colonoscopy is commonly used, it has not been studied in large, randomized trials.)

Model screening program

Within a few years of initiating its population-based screening program, Kaiser Permanente was able to dramatically increase its screening rates by mailing FIT kits to the homes of its Northern California members of recommended screening age, 50 to 75 years old; systematically reminding members when they are due for screening; and quickly processing a large volume of FITs — upwards of 3,000 per day — that are mailed directly to a Kaiser Permanente laboratory.

“Kaiser Permanente’s screening program for colorectal cancer in Northern California is a perfect example of how a large health care system can expertly use technology and data to create a program that promotes health, prevents illness and saves the lives of its members on an unprecedented scale,” said Yi-Fen Chen, MD, associate executive director for quality and research of The Permanente Medical Group.

In 2014, the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable set a national goal of screening at least 80 percent of those eligible by 2018. Kaiser Permanente Northern California achieved the 80 percent screening rate by 2011. The Kaiser Permanente FIT-based outreach program, combined with colonoscopy, has become a model for similar programs to maximize the number of people screened in the United States, the Veteran’s Administration and internationally.

Dr. Corley now also leads the National Cancer Institute’s Population-based Research Optimizing Screening through Personalized Regimens (or PROSPR) consortium, a multisite effort to evaluate and improve cancer screening processes, including colorectal cancer. The consortium’s research has included important studies on the quality and effectiveness of colonoscopies and adenoma detection rates.

“Screening markedly decreases deaths from colorectal cancer and enables people to live healthier lives,” Dr. Corley said. “The future of colorectal cancer research and care is furthering proven ways to increase screening rates; better understand the best ages to start, repeat and stop screening; and continue to improve the ease and effectiveness of the tests themselves.”

Integrated Program Improves Heart and Stroke Risk Factors in Those With Diabetes

OAKLAND, Calif. — Over a 10-year period, control of three key cardiovascular risk factors improved faster for Kaiser Permanente diabetes patients in Northern California than in the rest of the United States, according to research published today in the American Journal of Medicine.

This study marks the first investigation to systematically assess the effects of Preventing Heart Attacks and Strokes Everyday (or PHASE) program, launched in Northern California in 2004, on multiple risk factors. The study reviewed annual blood pressure, blood sugar and blood lipid levels in approximately 100,000 PHASE patients with diabetes in Northern California, and compared them with data on commercial enrollees from the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (or HEDIS).

“People with diabetes face a higher risk of stroke and heart attack, but controlling key risk factors is a real challenge,” said lead author Jamal S. Rana, MD, PhD, cardiologist at Kaiser Permanente Oakland Medical Center and adjunct researcher at the Division of Research. Bringing blood pressure, blood sugar and blood lipid levels under control is a major focus of the PHASE program at Kaiser Permanente, which uses lifestyle changes and medications to improve patients’ heart health.

The PHASE program was designed for members with an elevated risk of cardiovascular disease, including people who have had a heart attack, stroke or diabetes. The use of a patient registry identifies these patients who might benefit from intensive risk-factor control, and each patient is treated by a comprehensive care management team according to a continually updated treatment algorithm.

“Our encouraging findings speak to the strength of the PHASE program,” Dr. Rana said. “This study shows that the PHASE program addresses the daunting challenge of controlling risk factors in a high-risk population consistently and over an extended period of time, by the systematic application of a simple treatment protocol, a comprehensive registry, performance metrics, and task sharing with care managers.”

According to the new study, “Improved Cardiovascular Risk Factors Control Associated with a Large-Scale Risk Reduction Population Management Program among Diabetes Patients,” PHASE has been particularly successful for diabetes patients, who make up two thirds of the program’s participants.

Notably, the proportion of diabetes patients with better blood pressure control consistently remained 20 percentage points higher at Kaiser Permanente than among U.S. health systems reporting performance to HEDIS, in accordance with the findings of previous research among Kaiser Permanente members in Northern California with hypertension. The proportion of patients with good blood pressure control started out higher at Kaiser Permanente and remained so throughout the study, rising from 77 percent in 2007 to 82 percent in 2013, versus an increase from 57 percent to 62 percent in the national HEDIS reports.

From 2004 through 2013, the percentage of people with diabetes who had poor blood sugar control fell both nationally and for Kaiser Permanente patients, but only the Kaiser Permanente group’s decline was statistically significant. During the same period, the proportion of individuals with diabetes with good lipid control rose from 47 to 71 percent for the Kaiser Permanente patients, but there was no significant change seen in the national HEDIS reports.

Since 2006, Kaiser Permanente has partnered with community health to share and implement evidence-based PHASE strategies for reducing heart attacks and strokes in high-risk patient populations.

And now study senior author Marc G. Jaffe, MD, of Kaiser Permanente’s South San Francisco Medical Center and the Resolve to Save Lives Cardiovascular Health Initiative, is leading efforts to spread a similar approach worldwide to help low- and middle-income countries implement proven strategies to prevent cardiovascular disease.

“We are excited to share our experiences with others who treat high risk individuals, not only in California, but also across the world,” Dr. Jaffe said.

This study was funded by a Kaiser Permanente Northern California Community Benefit grant.

In addition to Drs. Rana and Jaffe, co-authors were Andrew J. Karter, PhD, Jennifer Y. Liu, MPH, and Howard H. Moffet, MPH, of the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research.

Las Patronas Grant Awarded to San Diego Surfrider for Water Quality Testing Program

WHO/WHEN:

Surfrider Foundation San Diego Chapter will be launching the Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) program in early 2018 due in part to receiving a generous grant from Las Patronas, a historically philanthropic organization in San Diego. Since 1946, Las Patronas has donated over $ 20 million to over a thousand charitable institutions that support a diverse range of causes and services in San Diego.

WHAT/WHERE:

The Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) is Surfrider Foundation’s national volunteer-run, water

testing, education and advocacy program. The program was founded upon Surfrider Foundation’s Clean Water Initiative:

 

To protect water quality so it is safe to surf, swim, and play in the ocean.

 

Similar to the national program, San Diego’s Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) program will be a water quality monitoring, education and advocacy program, run by Surfrider San Diego volunteers and community volunteers impacted by water quality issues. Specifically, the SD BWTF will facilitate weekly water quality results in order to inform public recreational use in our Weekend Beach Reports.

 

For approximately 20% of the year, the beaches of Imperial Beach are closed because the level of human sewage is too risky for contact or exposure. The nearby Tijuana Sloughs are closed  60% of the time due to hazardous human waste. Other times, neither are closed but the stench of raw, untreated sewage flowing in the nearby Tijuana River causes residents to stay indoors, keep windows closed, and dart home from their cars fighting nausea, gagging, and watering eyes. In February 2017, the largest sewage spill in ten years occured, where the U.S. estimates somewhere between 143 to 200 million gallons of sewage contaminated the regions of Imperial Beach and Coronado.

 

The first year of the BWTF program will focus on the areas most affected by water quality in the Tijuana River Valley, Coronado and Imperial Beach (one of the most water polluted regions of San Diego County). BWTF will identify and add additional testing sites of areas that are negatively impacted by water quality issues within San Diego Counties 72 miles of coastline.

 

Surfrider has partnered with community groups and schools in the South Bay area to focus water quality sampling and testing on highly vulnerable pollution zones. Students and volunteers will perform weekly water quality testing and results will be posted to Surfrider Foundation San Diego’s website.

 

The second lab will reside in the Surfrider Foundation San Diego office, centrally located in Sorrento Valley. This lab will be used as an open lab for all Surfrider volunteers and concerned citizens that are a part of BWTF, to test water samples and post results as the program targets the need for testing at other site along our communities coastline.

 

THE BIG WHY:

 

SD BWTF will be established with the following objectives:

 

  • to provide concerned citizens with the opportunity for hands-on involvement with an environmental problem solving effort;

  • to gather coastal water samples on a regular basis to determine pollution levels in the near shore environment;

  • to raise public awareness regarding the extent and severity of coastal water pollution;

  • to use the data collected to bring polluters into compliance; and

  • to develop a model program that could influence national legislation and enforcement.

Report: Pentagon Acknowledges Secret UFO Program

For the first time, the Pentagon has acknowledged the existence of a recent, secretive program to investigate reports of UFO sightings, The New York Times reports. While the Defense Department says it ended the mysterious Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program in 2012, Luis Elizondo, the former head of the program, told the Times it continues to operate with the help of officials from the Navy and CIA, albeit without federal funding. Elizondo said he appointed a successor to take over after his resignation in October. The program, which began as part of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2007, was launched with backing from former Senate majority leader Harry Reid and his longtime friend, Robert Bigelow. Bigelow’s company, Bigelow Aerospace, received just under $ 22 million in government funds from late 2008 until 2011, according to the report. The company used the funds to modify buildings for the storage of materials recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena and study people who’ve reported unexplained encounters. The program also collected video and audio recordings of reported UFO sightings, including one in which Navy pilots can be heard expressing shock as a “fleet” of rotating, glowing auras follow them at high speeds.

Kaiser Permanente and Village Capital Launch Program to Spark Innovation for Successful Aging in Communities

Kaiser Permanente and Village Capital are teaming up to launch Health US: 2018, a unique program focused on addressing critical economic, social and environmental issues that impact the health of aging populations. This collaboration will tap into socially minded entrepreneurs to spur development of community health innovations for successful aging.

Kaiser Permanente is a long-established leader in providing care and coverage programs for seniors. This program seeks to look even further to community-health interventions that can support an aging population. Working with Village Capital brings their expertise as a global venture capital firm that finds, trains and invests in entrepreneurs solving real-world problems.

The major wave coming and our opportunity to serve

Between 2015 and 2060, the number of people over age 65 will double and the number of individuals over 80 will triple, according to the Population Reference Bureau, representing the largest demographic shift the U.S. has ever seen. At the same time, the price tag of retirement and aging is far beyond what most of the population can afford. Thirty-five million baby boomers on the cusp of retirement lack any retirement savings and only 27 percent think they’ll have enough money to cover health care expenses as they age. Currently there is not an infrastructure in place to account for the millions of coming retirees.

This aging crisis will affect the poorest Americans the most. Socioeconomic status plays a large role in an individual’s health and the quality of their aging experience. Poverty increases the likelihood of a physicial limitation in adults over 60, and the emotional distress of poverty contributes to physiological changes that make an individual more susceptible to depression.

Many people over the age of 65 experience social and emotional isolation and challenges handling investments and Social Security payments, or dealing with issues like transportation or meal preparation.

Against this background, Kaiser Permanente convened an “Aging Challenge Design Roundtable” with Village Capital. The roundtable brought together community leaders in providing resources for seniors, along with Kaiser Permanente leaders focused on social supports and improving care and innovations. They identified top challenges facing seniors today: creating workforce opportunities; improving social, emotional and education support for caregivers; managing finances; and organizing affordable support services to enable aging at home.

‘Think outside the medical setting’

“We recognize the urgent need for solutions that can change the passive aging narrative and facilitate the three key components of successful aging – function, health status and social inclusion,” said Bechara Choucair, MD, chief community health officer at Kaiser Permanente. “Helping people age well requires us to think outside the medical setting. Our goal is to drive innovation that will help create the right infrastructure and environments that people need to age well and with dignity.”

Village Capital will bring their expertise to identify entrepreneurs committed to developing innovations to help address these community-related issues. Kaiser Permanente will work in collaboration with Village Capital to select the most promising ventures and provide expertise and mentorship for the workshops.

The top 10-12 ventures will be taken through three separate four-day workshops designed to strengthen their business models, leverage the collective knowledge of their fellow participating entrepreneurs, and provide tailored engagements with potential strategic partners.

Frequently, a startup’s biggest need is validation from customers and relationships with key partners to help them navigate scaling. This program serves to streamline this process, helping ventures connect with decision-makers.

At the end of the program, two of the ventures, chosen using a unique peer-selected approach, will receive initial investment capital from VilCap Investments, with the ability to commit follow-on investment to the highest-performing companies in the portfolio over time. Applications are being accepted now and the workshops will conclude by June 2018.

Focus on tech-enabled services

While all ventures with aging-related solutions are encouraged to apply, the program is especially interested in tech-enabled services that:

  • Enable aging in place
  • Create workforce opportunities for an aging population and tap into the potential of seniors
  • Plan and communicate an individual’s last wishes
  • Decrease isolation and increase social engagement
  • Improve the social, emotional, and/or educational support for caregivers
  • Improve access to health services
  • Assist in managing the finances, such as paying bills and handling investments and Social Security, both for the individual as they age and/or the designated caregiver
  • Find and organize affordable, quality support services, such as transportation, caregiving, cleaning and meal preparation

“Kaiser Permanente is a leader in their approach to health, and we’re thrilled to be teamed up with them,” said Ross Baird, president, Village Capital. “These market-based solutions around aging have the potential to change millions of lives, and also make an attractive investment opportunity.”

Applications to Health: US 2018 are now open through Village Capital’s website. For more information, please visit: http://vilcap.com/program/health-us-2018/

Kaiser Permanente Grant Brings HICORE Healthy Hydration Program to Students at Kapunahala Elementary School

HONOLULU — More than 500 students at Kapunahala Elementary School in Kaneohe were encouraged to develop healthy habits at an event celebrating the completed installation of the school’s new water bottle filling station. The water station is part of a program from the Hawaii Initiative for Childhood Obesity Research and Education (know as HICORE) and the Hawaii Department of Education. HICORE is teaching students about the benefits of healthy hydration and installing water bottle stations throughout Hawaii’s schools, encouraging students to make healthy beverage decision and avoid sugary drinks through a grant from Kaiser Permanente.

The program, which began in 2015, allows schools to receive water bottle filling stations after they implement healthy policies, such as reducing or eliminating beverage offerings that are high in sugar. The program is part of the Hawaii 5210 Initiative that encourages children to eat five servings of fruits and vegetables, limit their screen time to two hours, get at least one hour of physical activity and drink zero sugary beverages each day.

The simple choice to drink water rather than sweetened drinks each day can make a big difference in a person’s long-term health and quality of life. When keiki learn healthy habits, it can help them avoid potentially deadly conditions such as obesity and diabetes. Making water a convenient alternative to juice and soda is vital.

To date, the Hawaii 5210 Initiative has 72 participating schools and has installed 24 water bottle filling stations at six Oahu complexes and one Maui complex.

NEW PARENT ESSENTIAL UPDATE:

The NYC attack shouldn’t lead to getting rid of the diversity lottery program

The NYC attack shouldn’t lead to getting rid of the diversity lottery program


The NYC attack shouldn’t lead to getting rid of the diversity lottery program

On Wednesday morning, President Trump tweeted that the New York City attacker arrived in the U.S. under the “diversity lottery program” and that his administration would seek to end it. But Trump is totally wrong about the diversity lottery program for a few reasons, the biggest one being that getting rid of the diversity lottery program wouldn’t have changed anything about the attack on Tuesday afternoon.

The Department of Homeland Security confirmed late Wednesday that the New York City attacker entered the U.S. in 2010 with a passport and a valid diversity immigrant visa, according to the Washington Post. But NYPD and law enforcement said in previous statements that he was radicalized after coming to the U.S., so for that very simple reason, changing the immigration policy wouldn’t have worked in this particular case. Aside from that, the diversity lottery program allows many immigrants to come to the U.S. who otherwise wouldn’t be able to, and closing those doors might not be the best thing for the country.

Trump said in a press conference, also Wednesday, that the diversity visa lottery program is not “nice.” “It sounds nice. It’s not nice. It’s not good,” he (sort of) explained. But it’s not like someone over at DHS spins some Bingo machine and randomly gives away free tickets to immigrants. It’s a lot more complicated than that.

The program was started in 1990 as a way to help immigrants come to the U.S. from countries that normally don’t have a lot of immigrants coming our way.

Recipients of the program come from countries that have fewer than 50,000 immigrants in the U.S. already and come from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America (other than Mexico), Oceania and South America, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.

It’s supposed to fill in the gap for people who can’t get visas through employment or family connections. According to CNN, one million green cards are issued by the U.S. per year and last year, 45,664 of them were diversity visa recipients.

To even apply for the visa, they have to have at least a high school education or equivalent and have had at least two years of work experience that required training within five years of the application date. They also have to have an in-person interview and be “admissible” to the U.S., which means they have to disclose past criminal behavior, including associations with terrorists. They take fingerprint scans and require a medical check up, too.

Again, no one’s scratching some magic DHS lotto ticket in a foreign country and getting a free ride to the U.S.

It’s called a lottery because the odds of getting one, given the number of applicants, are worse than the odds of getting into Harvard University, according to Vice.

Trump wants to get rid of this path to citizenship entirely and make immigration solely “merit based.” But the requirements for a diversity visa are already pretty high. Instead of scrapping the program, the State department could also look into revising how they screen people coming in, especially since the political environment has changed a lot since President George H.W. Bush signed it into law.

There might be better ways to screen people, but blocking immigrants from smaller countries from coming here just because they already don’t have a job lined up or family members living somewhere in New Jersey just seems backwards. Think of all the talent and interesting human beings we’d be missing out on.

That being said, the diversity visa lottery program hasn’t always been popular and there have been a handful of terrorist plots associated with the program, though only Tuesday’s was fatal. The others are associated with the program only because there were very tangential actors in the plot who had the visa. Given the number of diversity visas given out every year, that seems more like probability than the visa program actual being a cause of terrorism.

Although the diversity visa lottery program was passed with bipartisan support back in 1990, there was a move by Democrats to overhaul immigration legislation back in 2013. Funny enough, New York Senator Chuck Schumer was a member the group who came up with an immigration reform package that would have eradicated the diversity visa program in the name of a 13-year pathway to citizenship for all immigrants.

On Wednesday, Trump seemed to have forgotten that part of immigration history, calling the diversity visa lottery a “Schumer beauty.” (Isn’t it nice to live in a world where the president erroneously blames the senator of the state that just experienced a terrorist attack? But anyway…)

Back in 2013, Politico reported that the bipartisan immigration reform bill would “revamp every corner of U.S. immigration law, establishing a 13-year pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants, with several security benchmarks that have to be met before they can obtain a green card.” The reform bill would have also required a mandatory workplace verification system for employers and increase security on the borders.

Obama lauded the reform bill as a perfect example of compromise. The measure would not only increases security along the border, but requires a mandatory workplace verification system for employers, trying to ensure no jobs are given to immigrants who are not authorized to work in the United States. As with so many other pieces of bipartisan legislation during the Obama era, the bill died in Congress.

Immigration reform and national security are important, nuanced issues that should be dealt with by Congress. But we shouldn’t allow emotions to take over and implement policies such as Trump’s elusive “extreme vetting” program (what does that even mean?) because of one single instance. Given that the most recent terrorist attacks in the U.S. were perpetrated by people who were radicalized after they moved here. Getting rid of the diversity visa lottery doesn’t address that one, very important aspect of terror attacks that happen here.

Tiger Woods to enter diversion program Oct. 25

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Tiger Woods has agreed to plead guilty to reckless driving and will enter a diversion program that will allow him to have his record wiped clean if he completes the program, a prosecutor said Wednesday. Woods, 41, was charged with driving under the influence in May when he was found asleep in his Mercedes-Benz, apparently under the influence of a prescription painkiller and sleeping medication. No alcohol was found in his system. Woods did not appear at the Palm Beach County courthouse for his arraignment. Prosecutor Adrienne Ellis said the golf superstar agreed to plead guilty at an Oct. 25 hearing and enter the county’s program for first-time DUI offenders. "He is not being treated any different than anyone else," Ellis said. Woods’ attorney, Douglas Duncan, entered a not guilty plea to the DUI charge on Woods’ behalf and declined comment as he left the courthouse. Under the plea deal, prosecutors would…

$4.5M Intel HBCU Grant Program to Increase Retention in STEM College Majors and Careers

Intel HBCU Grant Program

Today, Intel Corp. is announcing the Intel HBCU Grant Program, a three-year, $ 4.5 million initiative, to help retain students in STEM pathways at six historically black colleges: Florida A&M University, Morgan State University, Howard University, Prairie View A&M University, North Carolina A&T State University, and Tuskegee University.

“The key goal of the program is retention, in college as well as in STEM careers,” Barbara Whye told me, Intel’s chief diversity and inclusion officer and vice president of Human Resources. “We’re working to increase retention rates in partnership with the universities.”

This is not an easy goal. The New York Times has previously reported that black people make up 1% of the tech workforce at Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Twitter, making this demographic the least represented of all underrepresented groups.

 

Intel’s Commitment to Diversity

 

In January 2015, Intel announced its goal to reach full representation in 2020, across all categories, from entry level positions, to the senior vice president, as well as among the Intel Fellows—which is the highest technical role at the company—Whye says. “Full representation” is determined by what’s available in the employee “market.” For example, if 25% of those with engineering degrees are women, Intel’s goal is to employ 25% or higher women engineers by 2020.

Intel is one of 80 companies that agreed to a White House pledge last year to increase diversity; of those companies, it’s been reported that only seven have released data about their progress, of which, Intel is one.

“We are serious about this commitment,” Whye says. “We’re one of the few still monitoring and reporting transparently about our progress. We’ve committed $ 300 million to invest in diversity and inclusion in our Intel workforce.”

 

The Intel HBCU Grant Program

 

The Intel HBCU Grant Program may hold promise in supporting the company’s achievement of its goals. The six HBCUs were chosen because they grant degrees relevant to Intel—in computer science, electrical engineering, and computer engineering.“These degrees fit within our relevant space. About 80,000 workers at Intel have engineering degrees,” Whye says, who also has a B.S. in electrical engineering.

She also explained that the program was developed with input from the schools themselves.“We spent nine months on the ground with the university presidents, in conversation. A lot of times, companies design programs for universities instead of having conversations with those universities, but we talked through its development.”

Another great aspect of the program is that it’s based on what research has shown to contribute to student success. Whye explained that, in order to increase retention for STEM students, key success factors are access, awareness, opportunity, role models, hands-on research, a quality curriculum, and knowing how this work makes a difference. “The program is designed around these key success factors,” Whye says.

The three-year program will also bring professors from the six campuses to Intel, so they can engage in annual workshops, and take back what they learn to their schools.

Internships and two-year scholarships are integral to the program. Black employees at Intel will also have the option of getting involved, by “adopting” one of the six schools or mentoring a student.

MFAA: The History of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Program (Also Known as Monuments Men)

MFAA: The History of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Program (Also Known as Monuments Men)


The Holocaust was the systematic murder of six million European Jews by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party. The horrors of the Holocaust have documented been many times. Even those that were not killed, mutilated, or starved in concentration camps were stripped of their citizenship and their identities. The Nazis did not stop there, though. Hitler, in his quest to build an empire, planned and executed the most extensive theft of art and cultural treasures in history. A group of art historians, museum curators, scholars, and others with an expertise in art accepted the enormous responsibility of traveling to the front lines of World War II in an effort to protect art before it could be stolen or recover the art that fell into the hands of the Nazis. Even more lent their expertise when the fighting ended, remaining in Europe for years after the war was over. They were called “Venus fixers” by the troops but have since come to be known as the Monuments Men. Acting on orders from General Dwight D. Eisenhower, who had the backing of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, many of the Monuments Men – and women – put their lives on the line for art. By doing so, they preserved not just paintings, sculptures, and tapestries, but a significant portion of the culture that makes life worth living. As Mikhail Piotrovsky, the director of the State Hermitage Museum in Russia, said, “Art belongs to humanity. Art is what makes us human.” This book dives into the fascinating history of one of the greatest treasure hunts of all time! HistoryCaps is an imprint of BookCaps Study Guides.

Eat & Beat Diabetes with Picture Perfect Weight Loss: The Visual Program to Prevent and Control Diabetes

Eat & Beat Diabetes with Picture Perfect Weight Loss: The Visual Program to Prevent and Control Diabetes


Beat diabetes "and" lose weight Ask any doctor or nutritionist who treats patients with diabetes: the first focus for controlling the disease is a healthy eating plan. But typical diabetic eating plans have been all about what you can’t eat and what to do if you fall prey to a craving for foods you shouldn’t have. But now a typical day in the life of a diabetic might start with a smoked salmon-and-dill omelet, continue to a lunch of three-bean chili, salsa and guacamole, and finish with a dinner of grilled shrimp and shaved fennel, topped off by a dessert of chocolate terrine. It’s a kind of eating that virtually guarantees not just control of the disease and a satisfying of the appetite, but an emphasis on specific nutrients that actually target diabetes, beating back its potential side effects and maintaining the healthy weight that is key to controlling the disease. In "Eat & Beat Diabetes with Picture Perfect Weight Loss," Dr. Howard Shapiro uses the same visual method of food comparisons that made his bestselling weight-loss books so popular and easy to use. Now he has teamed with top chef Franklin Becker, a diabetic himself, and together they reveal the secrets to a diet that can actually help you prevent and beat diabetes–without depriving yourself of delicious food.
