In addition, communities on the Kenai Peninsula, which consist of residents who regularly visit and view the park resources from their towns, will also be served. These communications will take the form of educational programs, called “Discovery Labs,” and they will be developed jointly by UAA staff based at the Kachemak Bay Research Reserve (KBRR) and NPS staff. The educational programs will be delivered by UAA staff to the various communities.

Description: The National Institute on Aging (NIA) invites applications from qualified institutions for the creation or continuation of Resource Centers for Minority Aging Research (RCMARs). The primary purpose of this FOA is (1) to support centers that will enhance the diversity of the aging research workforce by mentoring promising scientists from under-represented groups for sustained careers in aging research in a selected area of scientific focus, and (2) to develop infrastructure to promote advances in this area and increase the number of researchers focused on the health and well-being of minority elders. RCMARs focus on priority areas of social, behavioral, and economic research on the processes of aging at the individual or societal level. The program supports research at multiple levels from genetics to cross-national comparative research, and at stages from basic through translational, with the goal to improve the health, well-being, function, and independence of older Americans. This new cycle of RCMARs will expand the scientific scope of the program to encourage transdisciplinary social and behavioral science research on any theme addressed in the National Institute on Aging Strategic Plan. Consistent with the longstanding focus of the RCMAR program on minority aging research, all centers are also expected to offer mentoring in health disparities and minority aging issues as a major component of their research education programs, thereby enhancing the potential impact of research supported by the program on all sectors of our aging society.

Description: There are approximately 1.2 million people living with HIV in the United States among whom only 40% are engaged in HIV medical care and 30% have reached viral suppression. The substantial proportion of persons who are not engaged in care has important individual and public health implications because over 90% of new HIV infections are transmitted from persons with HIV who are not fully retained in medical care. Re-engaging out-of-care persons with HIV back into care, confers important individual-level health benefits and population-level prevention benefits. Use of HIV surveillance data to identify out-of-care persons, is one strategy for identifying and re-engaging out-of-care persons in care. Using surveillance data (i.e., CD4 and HIV viral load test results reported to the health department) to identify out-of-care persons and to re-engage these persons in care is called Data to Care or D2C. In the current D2C model, there is a delay in the identification of out-of-care persons due to the time interval between recommended monitoring tests (i.e., every 3-6 months) and the subsequent reporting of these tests to surveillance. Thus, the current D2C model identifies a failure to retain in care rather than identify persons at risk for dropping out of care and the model cannot intervene in the time between a gap in care and identification of being out of care. More real-time data is required to identify persons at risk of dropping out of care and to intervene prior to a gap in care or loss to care. Pharmacy prescription refill (claims) data are a source to identify HIV-infected persons, who have stopped filling antiretroviral (ARV) medications, and who are at risk for becoming out of care. Patients may elect to fill prescriptions at one of potentially many pharmacies that accept their insurance plan. Within one pharmacy network, prescriptions can be tracked across partnered pharmacies (e.g. chain drug stores). However, if a patient switches pharmacies (to another chain or independent pharmacy) the prior refill history remains with the first pharmacy. Pharmacy claims are adjudicated for an insurance company by a third-party claims processor or a pharmacy-benefit management (PBM) company. All pharmacy claims that are billed to an insurance company, for an individual patient, can be tracked through the PBM, regardless of where a patient filled the prescription. PBMs manage pharmacy benefits for ~85% of all people with prescription benefits. Because most ARVs are prescribed as a 30-day supply of medication, data from PBMs, can be used to identify persons who are not filling their medications on a monthly basis. Tracking ARV refill data can, therefore, be a more real-time indicator of poor adherence and can act as a harbinger of potential poor retention in care. Given that ~30% of persons on ARV are non-adherent, using real time pharmacy data to identify persons who fail to fill ARV prescriptions and to intervene could have a significant impact on adherence and potentially on retention in care. The purpose of the cooperative-agreement is to develop and implement a model using real-time pharmacy data to identify persons who fail to pick up prescribed ARVs, and who are at risk for poor retention in care, and to use this information for targeted adherence and retention interventions and to re-engage persons in care. The grantee, along with the Project Team, will develop and implement a 1st line intervention for persons who fail to pick up prescribed ARVs within 30 days, a 2nd line adherence /retention intervention to be conducted at the prescribing clinic or filling pharmacy for persons who fail to pick up prescribed ARVs within 60 days and a 3rd line intervention for the health department to locate persons who fail to pick up prescribed ARVS within 90 days and to re-link these individuals to the clinic or to the pharmacy. The expected outcomes of the model program are increased retention in HIV care, re-linkage to care, adherence to ARV therapy and viral load suppression. Specific activities, of the cooperative agreement, are broadly categorized into three areas: (1) develop a model to use pharmacy claims data to identify persons who fail to pick up prescribed ARVs and to target these individuals for progressive adherence interventions (2) implement the model (3) evaluate project outcomes and disseminate results.

Description: The unique nature of Alaska, with its many rural and remote villages, provides the challenge of getting quality marine science education to students in schools which are usually multi-grade facilities with minimal staff support. Staff members of both Kenai Fjords National Park and the Alaska SeaLife Center (ASLC) have been successfully taking science to these students for the past ten years. In a state with such an abundance of science, natural resources, and students longing to understand them â¿¿ the Ocean Alaska Science Learning Center (OASLC) Village Outreach Program is a natural fit. With a track record of success and a recent increase in teacher participation and frequency of outreach trips, this program has the potential for continued growth and even greater success as schools are looking for unique, cost-effective, and inquiry based learning experiences for their students.
