Tillman, Peggie S.
There continues to be a significant disparity between the health status of minorities and nonminorities despite the improved health status of Americans in general. This bibliography contains 381 citations to information published between January 1983 and December 1988 concerning the following aspects of minority health: (1) health education; (2) health promotion; (3) attitudes towards health; and (4) availability of health services. Citations are limited to the United States and to ethnic groups identified in a search of the National Library of Medicine's MEDLINE database; women were not considered as a separate minority. Citations are arranged in the following three sections: (1) journal articles; (2) hearings, conference papers, and reports; and (3) monographs. The journal articles are subdivided into the following subject categories: (1) aging; (2) AIDS; (3) cancer; (4) cardiovascular diseases; (5) mental health; (6) adolescent pregnancy; (7) general pregnancy issues; (8) substance abuse; and (9) general health. Citations appear in only one category. A subscription order form is appended. (Author/FMW)
