Latina Health in the United States identifies and offers an in-depth examination of the most critical health issues that affect Latinas' health and health care within the United States. In this comprehensive resource, the contributors examine a wide variety of topics that address Latina women's health concerns such as sexual and reproductive health issues; chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes; the impact of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs; mental health issues; adolescent health; and rural and migrant occupational health. Latina Health in the United States is a unique guide to the health and well-being of the women in our country's fastest growing population.
