"Transforming Global Healthcare Delivery: Leveraging Technology to Increase Accessibility and Affordability" guides readers through the ongoing digital transformation of healthcare. The author makes the case for how tools like AI, telehealth, and data analytics can empower patients, connect underserved communities, and help health systems achieve the Quadruple Aim. Real-world examples along with the author's evaluations of digital health interventions showcase promising directions. The author argues realizing the full potential of new technologies requires corresponding advancement of care delivery models towards team-based, coordinated practice and spotlights innovative programs trailing shared appointments, community health workers, remote monitoring and more that can expand access and better meet individual needs. With authoritative analysis grounded in both research and practice, this book serves as a practical roadmap for digitally enabled, patient-centred care capable of delivering improved outcomes to all.

"Pathophysiological Consequences of Alcohol" presents how alcohol impacts physiological processes in organ systems. Relevant organ system physiology will first be presented as an overview, followed by up to date, evidenced-based findings related to how alcohol use either acutely or chronically impacts these processes. Each chapter, with the exception of the Introduction and Cellular and Molecular Physiology, begins with an overview of the physiology of the system, followed by the salient findings on alcohol's impact on that system, and ends with with an integrative case or clinical vignette. Written for those working and studying physiology, biology or neuroscience, by a team of experts involved in the study of how alcohol use contributes to risk for comorbidities, based in a leading Physiology Department, and heavily engaged in teaching of the discipline.

"Fluid Dynamics of Viral Transmission" is a timely exploration of the transmission dynamics of COVID-19 within environments focusing specifically on the airborne transmission of respiratory aerosols carrying infectious viruses. With the recent global pandemic, there is an urgent need for information into the intricate interplay between fluid dynamics and viral spread. The book provides solutions to specific problems related to COVID-19 transmission in indoor environments. These solutions encompass a range of practical interventions informed by CFD simulations, including optimizing ventilation systems, designing effective air filtration strategies, and implementing spatial layout modifications to minimize airborne transmission risks. Additionally, the book explores the efficacy of various mitigation measures, such as mask-wearing, physical distancing, and occupancy limits, in reducing the spread of COVID-19 within households and enclosed spaces. Ultimately, the goal is to equip readers with the knowledge and tools needed to create safer indoor environments. Written for public health officials and policymakers, healthcare professionals, engineers, researchers and academics fields of fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, epidemiology, and virology.

Clinical research is the tip of the spear for innovation and central in the development of improving safety and efficacy for patient centric care. Unfortunately, clinical research in academic practices is bogged down by inefficiency and infrequent regulatory oversight, thus leaving physicians unable to meet the clinical and research needs for driving innovation. Private practice is a valid practice cohort that can effectively, reliably, and reproducibly perform study related activities, for both FDA and non-FDA regulated studies, both industry-sponsored or investigator-initiated.Clinical Research in Private Practice fills a gap and provides a playbook for how to incorporate clinical research in a validated, safe, and compliant manner, allowing a needed meaningful contribution to the medical space, while concurrently maintaining fiduciary responsibility. Written for physicians by physicians.

Globally, it is estimated 1.3 billion tons of food, valued at $1 trillion is wasted a year, according to the United Nations and the Food and Agriculture Organization. (FAO) In addition, billions of tons of agro-industrial waste from agriculture and food processing activities are generated yearly, putting a strain on natural resources, and negatively effecting the environment. “Food and Agro-Industrial Wastes: Sustainable Impacts, Transformation and Added Value of By-Products,” addresses both the valorization of food waste and agro-industrial waste as a promising and sustainable solution to recycle material back into the supply chain to create new, value-added products—from functional foods to enhanced product packaging. Divided into four parts, “Food and Agro-Industrial Wastes: Sustainable Impacts, Transformation and Added Value of By-Products,” sequentially addresses the fundamentals of food waste. It begins with explaining sustainable development methods through responsible consumption and production and moves on to emphasize the practical protocol-based valorization methods for food and agro-industrial wastes and ways to extract value-added products. This includes a deep dive into the meat and dairy industries, crop, and processing residues for leaves, stems, pods and straw, and husks, seeds, bagasse (a byproduct of the sugar extraction process) and roots, respectively. The valorization and safety of fruit and vegetable waste highlights peels, tops, skins and shells and how their bioactive compounds are used to nutritionally enhance and innovate food products. The book concludes with valuable, real-life case studies on the valorization of food and agro-industrial wastes highlighting bioactive compounds, nutraceuticals and other bio-based enzymes.

“Chia Seeds: Applications in the Agri-food Industry” is a comprehensive guide to the properties of chia biomass (seeds, leaves and ingredients/products thereof) and their utilization in the agri-food industry and beyond. The book is based on the analysis of chia value chain and summarizes the scientific, technical and health aspects of chia (Salvia hispanica L.). Divided into 3 sections, this book fills a critical gap in the literature by providing a comprehensive overview of chia biomass available to address key global bioeconomy and United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) challenges. It provides advanced information for utilization of chia-based biomass based on their specific properties, application of eco-efficient technologies for their processing and conversion into a variety of products for different groups of consumers including those with special needs (e.g. celiac patients, vegans and vegetarians). It offers practical guidance on the development of new value chains, and their integration within the existing agri-food systems. Edited by a team of experts in the field, this book provides a practical and informative resource for researchers, students, and professionals interested in the application of chia seeds, leaves and chia-based ingredients for the development of new food and non-food value chains.
