Minorities, Aging and Health free pdf Ethnic minorities represent a growing percentage of the elderly population in the United States.

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.
