Preventive Medicine


Because of the increased burden of an array of cancers, African Americans have screening recommendations that are sometimes different from the majority population.  Dr. Hall will review the current US cancer demographics as well as recommendations for cancer screening in African Americans and other communities of color. When a cancer diagnosis is discovered, the related discussion needs to be delicately handled in many cases.  We will review the attitudes, perceptions, and beliefs regarding a cancer diagnosis in African American patients and best practices for successful outcomes.

Antimicrobial resistance, especially pneumococcal resistance to macrolide antibiotics, or potential safety concerns of commonly used antibiotics result in underserving certain patients with CABP.  A systemic pleuromutilin antibacterial may be a treatment alternative for these underserved patients.
