9780674367692: The Harvard Guide to Womens Health

THIS EDITION HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A NEWER 2004 EDITION

With the publication of The Harvard Guide to Women's Health, women will have access to the combined expertise of physicians from three of the world's most prestigious medical institutions: Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Brigham and Women's Hospital. For complete information on women's health concerns, physical and psychological, this A to Z reference book will be the definitive resource.

Review:

Arranged alphabetically like an encyclopedia of health, it starts with Abdominal Pain and Abortion and works its way through Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Heartburn, and Safe Sex to Vulvitis and Zinc. While it zeroes in on health issues more generic health books often leave out, it's clearly more comprehensive than that. It's a guide family and friends, regardless of gender, will turn to for comprehensive, clear explanations in a field where too little said can be as harmful as misinformation. For women especially, for whom certain topics often get short shrift from squeamish publications, this guide's a godsend of information.

About the Author:

Dr. Karen J. Carlson is a pioneer in the field of primary care for women. More than fifteen years ago she founded Women's Health Associates at Massachusetts General Hospital and is currently Director of this innovative center, which has been widely emulated in other medical centers throughout the country. Dr. Carlson is an Assistant Professor of Medicine and Deputy Director of the Center of Excellence in Women's Health at Harvard Medical School. Her research and academic publications focus on hysterectomy, ovarian cancer screening, and communication between doctors and patients. She lectures frequently to thousands of physicians in continuing education courses at Harvard and other major medical schools.
