Brown and his co-workers to demonstrate the link between childhood adversity and premature loss of life, may ultimately provide us with most significant public health data ever compiled, said Sandra L. Bloom, M.D., an associate professor of health administration and plan at Drexel University School of Public Health. Our wish is that, because of this research, child maltreatment and contact with childhood traumatic stress in its different forms will be more more popular as a public medical condition, Brown said. It is important to understand that implications to childhood trauma can lengthen over an individual’s life.The study can be the first in-depth look at the gay/bisexual community in Ontario since a nationwide survey in 1991. The picture that emerges can be one of a community that is racially and culturally different, more noticeable than it was a decade ago and more developed when it comes to the cultural and community providers it offers. Twenty-five percent of gay and bisexual males surveyed have participated in unprotected intercourse with an informal male partner at least once in the past 90 days, says Myers. At the same time, men look like aware of a few of the risks.
