Extractions: Florida schools serve 2.7 million students, approximately 20% of whom live in poverty. In 1999, 81% of Floridas youth (aged 1024 years) did not attend daily physical education classes, 78% did not participate in any moderate physical activity, 74% did not eat the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables per day, and about half (48%) consumed alcohol during the month preceding survey or had engaged in sexual intercourse (50%). Evidence That Prevention Works Health education in schools can reduce the prevalence of health risk behaviors among young people. For example, health education resulted in a 37% reduction in the onset of smoking among 7th graders. In addition, obese girls in the 6th and 8th grades lost weight through a program at school, and students who attended a school-based life-skills training program were less likely than other students to smoke or use alcohol or marijuana.

Extractions: Dr. Sue McPherson (left) and Beth Calavito Siu, a graduate research assistant and a staff member of the Human Nutrition Center at UT-H School of Public Health, review food pyramids from around the world. After R. Sue McPherson, Ph.D., wrapped up her pre-med studies at Texas Tech in Lubbock, she headed straight for Houston and The University of Texas-Houston Health Science Center. Her intention was to apply for medical school. "But I went into the wrong building - the UT-Houston School of Public Health (SPH) - and my career path changed," she says today. "I have always been interested in how nutrition relates to disease. When I read the SPH catalog section on epidemiology, I knew this was my field because that is exactly what the discipline of epidemiology seeks to find." Dr. McPherson, associate professor of epidemiology and director of the Human Nutrition Center at SPH, says, "While we know that what we eat is neither the direct cause nor the sole preventative for disease, we also know they are very much intertwined." The Center focuses upon chronic diseases and the part nutrition may play in them." Children, their lifestyles and cardiovascular risk, and cancer in people of all ages, are of particular interest to Dr. McPherson. "We've been involved in trying to understand what children eat and what kinds of physical activity they do today. The point is to see what sorts of behaviors can be intervened upon and what changes can actually be brought about.
Extractions: WHY A RESIDENCY PROGRAM AT THE DEPARTMENT? P hysicians who continue their post graduate training through a year of primary care medicine (PGY-1), obtain and MPH or equivalent degree (PGY-2) and serve a year of 'practicum" in the field of public health with and accredited program (PGY-3) can become eligible to take the American Board exam in Preventive Medicine. Such physicians are in demand as Directors of local, regional and State health departments, as well as leaders in other preventive and public health roles. I t was with the intent to train the future leaders of Texas public health that the Department embarked on its program of residency training for the "practicum year". Because the program is supported by State tax dollars, the training is intended for those physicians who plan to remain in public health practice in Texas after completion of the residency program.
