About this title

Synopsis:

Where are the fields of prevention and health promotion for women headed?

This valuable book illuminates the need for-and the gains that can be achieved by-targeting prevention/health promotion programs toward minority and low-income women in the communities where they live.

Reflecting the rise of women’s health issues to a national priority in the last decade, Prevention Issues for Women’s Health in the New Millennium explores the individual and contextual factors-biological, sociocultural, economic, and environmental-that affect the quality and length of women’s lives. It examines current research on disease prevention and the need for health promotion, particularly with minority and hard-to-reach women, and suggests directions for future investigation.

Rather than generalizing or pontificating, Prevention Issues for Women’s Health in the New Millennium looks up close at specific studies designed to answer questions such as:

  • What kinds of health promotion programs could make the biggest difference in the lives of Native American women, today and tomorrow?
  • How effective are cancer education/support programs for rural women, and what can be done to improve their efficacy?
  • How does sexual orientation influence women’s patterns of health-related behavior?
  • How can female substance abusers lessen the distress issues that often bring on risky behavior?
  • How can we more effectively reach African-American women, who are twice as likely as Caucasian women to develop diabetes, hypertension, and stroke?

    Well referenced and complete with user-friendly tables that make the statistics of each study easy to work with, Prevention Issues for Women’s Health in the New Millennium brings you an incisive look at issues that will become prevention priorities in the near future.
