Health in the Later YearseBook - 1993
"This text is designed for use in courses on health and aging for upper-division college students. Students enrolled in these courses usually come from diverse fields, such as biology, medicine, dietetics, social work, psychology, sociology and recreational studies. Some students are preparing to work with older people, while others just wish to learn how to age successfully. The text is intended to meet the needs of both groups as well as graduate students and professionals who want to continue their education in health and aging. The topics addressed in this text provide a broad overview of health and aging. To meet the needs of students with little health background, basic health principles are included as well as their application to older people. Facts are amply referenced to enable advanced students to study health issues in more depth."--Pref.
