Minority Populations and Health by Thomas A. LaVeist
Book Description'The text is state-of-the-art in its analysis of health disparities from both domestic and international perspectives. "Minority Populations and Health: An Introduction to Health Disparities in the United States" is a welcome addition to the field because it widens access to the complex issues underlying the health disparities problem' - "Preventing Chronic Disease/CDC, October 2005". 'This is a very comprehensive, evidence-based book dealing with the health disparities that plague the United States. This is a welcome and valuable addition to the field of health care for minority groups in the United States' - "Doody's Publishers Bulletin, August 2005". 'Health isn't color-blind. Racial minorities disproportionately suffer from some diseases, but experts say race alone doesn't completely account for the disparities. "Newsweek's" Jennifer Barrett Ozols spoke with Thomas LaVeist, director of the Center for Health Disparities Solutions at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and author of the upcoming book, "Minority Populations and Health: An Introduction to Health Disparities in the U.S." (Jossey-Bass) about race and medicine' - "MSNBC"/"Newsweek" interview with author Thomas L. LaVeist, February 2005. 'The book is readable and organized to be quickly read with specifics readily retrievable. It is comprehensive and visual' - "Journal of the American Medical Association, September 2005". "Minority Populations and Health" is a textbook that offers a complete foundation in the core issues and theoretical frameworks for the development of policy and interventions to address race disparities in health-related outcomes. This book covers U.S. health and social policy, the role of race and ethnicity in health research, social factors contributing to mortality, longevity and life expectancy, quantitative and demographic analysis and access, and utilization of health services.
