Synopsis

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. Minorities, Aging and Health fills the gap and opens the debate on how to provide for the specific needs of an increasingly elderly population.







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.
