Health Equity Study Compares Segregation, Low Birth Weight in Chicago and Toronto

A new study reveals that low birth weight is strongly associated with racial and ethnic segregation in Chicago neighborhoods. In Toronto, however, communities with high proportions of racial and ethnic minorities did not have greater rates of low birth weight. Researchers from the Center for Community Health Equity, a collaboration of DePaul University and Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, believe the findings can inform future research on the root causes of health inequities.

Three-fifths of low and middle income households are currently unable to save money, while for people already saving, the ratio between spending and saving is dramatically falling, researchers say. A new report from CHASM, University of Birmingham’s research Centre on Household Assets and Savings Management, is calling on the government and employers to do more to help those on lower incomes to start saving.

What Do Health Plan Deductibles Really Mean for People with Chronic Illness? New Study Takes a Look

For tens of millions of Americans, the start of a new year means the counter has gone back to zero on their health insurance deductible. If they need health care, they’ll pay for some of it out of their own pockets before their insurance takes over. As insurance plans with deductibles grow in popularity, a new study takes a national look at what those plans mean for people with common chronic health conditions.

Novel Research Demonstrates Improvements in Board-Level IT Governance in Firms That Experience Cyber Attacks

ITSecurity-702x336.png

New research from Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University finds that when companies experience operational IT failures, such as a data breach, they make changes to their boards of directors in order to improve oversight and monitoring of IT resource utilization. The study also observes that the board-changes are proportional to the magnitude of drop in stock prices that companies often experience upon suffering an IT failure.
