Arizona's nonprofit sector delivers vital services to the community in fields such as health care, education and housing. But a report by the L. William Seidman Research Institute at ASU estimates that giving to nonprofits in Arizona will decline by $272.7 million annually due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Dennis Hoffman, the Institute’s director, explains this estimate and what it means for Arizona's nonprofit sector.
A measles outbreak that has affected 66 people in the state of Washington has drawn national attention and prompted lawmakers on Capitol Hill to hold a congressional hearing on the matter. While measles was eliminated from the United States in 2000 thanks to widespread vaccination programs, the disease is experiencing a resurgence due to declining vaccination rates. In this Q&A, Swapna Reddy and Matthew Speer from the College of Health Solutions explain the public health risks of a measles outbreak and the role of vaccines in preventing the spread of disease.
Glenn Gaesser, professor in the College of Health Solutions, is challenging the long-held premise that obesity is the primary cause of many major weight-related health conditions. According to Gaesser, who has studied obesity for more than a quarter-century, “health encompasses much more than a number on a scale. We tend to get hung up on weight and that is a problem.” In this Q&A, Gaesser shares his perspective and how he fully expects that his stance will get mixed reactions.
