January Faculty Publications

A new selection of articles have been added to the Faculty Publications display in the Ische Library. These eight articles, as well as all of the articles in our Faculty Publications database, are authored by at least one member of our research community here at LSUHSC-New Orleans. Each month the Library is proud to present copies of eight of these publications in a rotating display of 16. With the currently changes, we’ve decided to post the publications digitally. Check out the display below:

Publications cited in the Faculty Publications database are harvested weekly from a variety of sources, such as PubMedSCOPUS, and CINAHL, to name a few. In addition to articles they include books, book chapters, papers, editorials, letters to the editor, and meeting abstracts, all authored by at least one member of the LSUHSC-NO community. The database is maintained by Reference Librarian Kathy Kerdolff and is available to the general public here or via the Library’s webpage. A PDF of a bibliography of this month’s additions will soon be available here. If you have an article you would like us to highlight or if you have any questions regarding the display or the database, you can contact Kathy Kerdolff.

Louisiana adopts CDC guidance allowing shortened COVID quarantine, while stressing the risk

The Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) today adopts the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recently updated guidance that allows people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 to shorten their quarantine period from 14 days to 10 days, or as few as 7 days with a negative test.

Still, the shorter quarantine periods do come with a risk that a person may be infectious when he or she leaves quarantine, and should be carefully evaluated when weighing options.

The full news release can be read HERE on the Louisiana Department of Health website.

LSU Health Researchers Conduct Study on COVID and Neighborhood Deprivation

LSU Health researchers used ADI (Area Deprivation Index) to study the relationship between poverty and COVID in Louisiana, finding that people in deprived neighborhoods had as much as a 40% increased risk of COVID-19 compared to people in less deprived neighborhoods, in an article published last week.

The research was taken on to find answers about Louisiana’s high per capita rate of COVID this past summer, with highest COVID rates among African Americans.

The authors explain that risk factors “exist not only at the individual or biological level; neighborhood-level factors and their interactions with individual-level factors are also responsible for the observed disparities. Lack of access to health care, unemployment, less education, and poor housing conditions significantly increase the risk of COVID-19 infection.”

The authors hope the study can be “utilized to promote public health preventions measures besides social distancing, wearing a mask while in public and frequent handwashing in vulnerable neighborhoods with greater deprivation.”

You can read the article and see the findings at PLOS ONE. The LSUHSC Newsroom has also published a piece on the article.
