Nutrition, Growth and Development of North American Indian Children. Monograph.
Moore, William M., Ed.; And Others
Recognizing the special health needs of disadvantaged minority groups, in May 1969 the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development cosponsored a conference on these needs for North American Indian children. The monograph, based on this conference, summarizes previous knowledge, provides new information, and emphasizes the role of nutrition during growth and development. Articles are in 6 parts: (1) Perspectives in North American Indian Child Health and Development; (2) Diets, Growth and Nutritional Status of North American Indians; (3) Developmental Consequences of Malnutrition; (4) Field Studies of Malnutrition and Child Development; (5) Cultural Stability and Social Change in North American Indians; and (6) Nutrition Research and Community Service Among Native American Populations.
