Written by a stellar panel of scholars and practitioners, Health Issues in the Black Community (third edition) provides the most complete coverage of the factors affecting the health status of African Americans. The need for this book is tremendous: in the seven years since the release of the second edition, the health status among African Americans has continued to be marginalized against national morbidity and mortality statistics.All existing chapters have been substantially updated, and this edition includes numerous new thematic chapters to capture the evolving dynamics of health disparities in the African American community. This volume will prove an invaluable resource to researchers, students, health planners, policy makers, practitioners, local health department personnel, and physicians.Part One: Health Status Across the Life SpanThe Health Status of Children and Adolescents; The Health Status of Black Women; The Health Status of Black Men; Health and the ElderlyPart Two: Social, Mental, and Environmental ChallengesMental Health; The Epidemic of Homicide and Violence; The Dilemma of Organ and Tissue Transplantation; The Quest for Environmental Justice; Social Marketing, Media & Health; Prison Health and ReEntryPart Three: Chronic DiseasesRacism and Metabolic Health; Hypertension, Heart Disease and Other Risk Factors for Stroke; Cancer; Diabetes; Sickle Cell AnemiaPart Four: Lifestyle BehaviorsSubstance Abuse; HIV/AIDS; Tobacco; Alcohol Use and Misuse; Nutrition and Obesity; Physical Activity; Oral HealthPart Five: Alternative Interventions and Human Resources Development Chiropractic Health Care; Comprehensive and Alternative Medicine; The Role of Black Faith Communities in Fostering Health; Indigenous Community Health Workers in the 1960's; Health Training PipelinePart Six: Ethical, Political, and Ecological IssuesResearch and Ethics: A Legacy of Distrust; Health Policy Challenges; Closing the Gap: Eliminating Health Disparities -- A Vision for Health Philanthropy
