"There are clearly many different cultural approaches to health, and it is of great importance for health care workers and the administrations that support them to be culturally aware. Knowing about the different approaches to health can also help the lay consumer be better apprised of cultural differences that in turn can lead to a reduction in stereotyping or prejudicial attitudes toward behaviors that may be seen as different from the norm. This book represents the second in a series of titles each designed to focus on a subgroup representing the diversity of America." - Series Forward
