Students entering North Carolina public schools must have documentation of a health assessment and immunizations by the 30th day of class, or they are excluded from attending school until they submit documentation. A community collaborative was essential in decreasing the number of students excluded from school for noncompliant documentation in the Winston-Salem Forsyth County school district.

Rheumatoid arthritis is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis. Because of advances in therapy, clinical outcomes have improved dramatically and remission is possible for many patients. These advances have come with many challenges, prompting consideration of strategies to improve diagnosis and treatment and implement more cost-effective care.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, a significant contributor to disability and the major cause for joint replacements, but treatment for the disease is still limited. Although no disease-modifying treatments exist, there are evidence-based algorithms and guidelines for the symptomatic treatment of the disease.

Obesity and musculoskeletal health are inextricably linked across risk factors, prevalence rates, and societal burden. They are also linked across management strategies. It is necessary to consider the mutual impact of musculoskeletal health and obesity in order to inform effective and safe weight management and physical activity solutions.

Osteoarthritis is the most common musculoskeletal condition. Due to the aging population and rising obesity worldwide, the projected increase in osteoarthritis is expected to be substantial. Since osteoarthritis has been associated with disability and many chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, it is important to consider its impact on mortality.

Timothy F Platts-Mills, Joseph A Dayaa
The increase in the number of active and independent older adults has, unfortunately, led to an epidemic of musculoskeletal injuries in this population. Chronic pain and functional decline are common sequelae from these injuries and have a major impact on quality of life. Optimizing care for these patients will likely require educating patients about analgesic risks and benefits, promoting physical activity, identifying and addressing the psychological impacts of the injury, and coordinating care between emergency physicians, orthopedists, and primary providers...

Racial and ethnic disparities in musculoskeletal disorders have been consistently documented in research conducted both nationally and in North Carolina. These disparities represent a higher clinical need that must be met with increased access to safe and effective interventions across medical, pharmacological, and psychosocial/behavioral modalities.

Therapy and rehabilitation services improve patients' lives. Changes in health care insurance policies and coverage substantially influence out-of-pocket costs for patients and their families. This may lead to variability in services and barriers to appropriate health care. This commentary highlights the current variability and barriers for therapy and rehabilitation services.

It is no secret that our country is in the midst of an opioid crisis. With hundreds of Americans dying everyday due to opioid use, it is hard to ignore. Closely related, though not as often talked about, is another crisis providers are facing: chronic pain and its treatment. The treatment approach to this problem is multifaceted. Evidence-based studies are the hallmark of appropriate treatment; however, increasing patient concerns and regulatory oversight have added an additional layer that physicians and other prescribers have to incorporate...

Musculoskeletal conditions are not only the most common group of chronic health problems in our country, but they have a profound impact on critical domains of health including pain, disability, work participation, mental health, and potentially mortality. There are challenges to the treatment of common musculoskeletal conditions, including the current epidemic of opioid misuse and abuse. However, there are also evidence-based therapies that can be more effectively incorporated into care models for these conditions...

BACKGROUND The Annual Wellness Visit was designed to enhance preventive services utilization among Medicare beneficiaries; Annual Wellness Visits are underutilized with sparse documented effectiveness. Patients of 3 community-based and 2 retirement community outpatient clinics in western North Carolina had team-based Annual Wellness Visits over a 20-month program, with the goal of improving the uptake and delivery of the Annual Wellness Visit. A clinical pharmacist saw high-complexity patients (≥5 medications) and a licensed practical nurse saw low-complexity patients...
