Books Info:

Minorities, Aging and Health free pdf Ethnic minorities represent a growing percentage of the elderly population in the United States. Yet, the impact of aging on minority groups and subgroups has only been partially studied.

Specific issues covered in this volume include: mortality and life expectancy- the incidence of chronic disease and disabilities- diet and nutrition- mental health- access to health services and long-term care- and public health-care policy.
