College Brief

From the September ACP Observer, copyright 2003 by the American College of Physicians.

Free patient videostarget minority groups

Two new free patient education videos from the College address common health issues among various racial and ethnic groups in America.

The videos provide medical information for at-risk groups and feature well-known public figures talking about their personal experiences with the diseases. The videos and accompanying patient guidebooks can be used in the office setting or given to patients to take home.

"Awareness is Power: Cancer and the African-American" discusses the risks and treatment options for prostate, breast and lung cancers, the three most common cancers among black Americans (ACP product code # 701101030). An accompanying guidebook outlines the risks, symptoms, treatments and resources for coping with cancer.

"Diabetes Prevention and Control: A Guide for Hispanic-Americans" features Congressman Joe Baca, actress Liz Torres and actor Edward James Olmos. All three have personal experience with the disease.

They join physician-experts to provide information and advice about the prevention and treatment of diabetes. The 30-minute program is available in both Spanish (product code # 701101530) and English (product code # 701101130), and it comes with a bilingual patient guidebook.

The videos and accompanying guidebooks are free for ACP members. (Shipping costs $5 for one to five items and $10 for six to 10 items.)

More information is online. To order, contact ACP Customer Service at 800-523-1546, ext. 2600, or 215-351-2600 (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., ET).
