Summary

This text presents current information about infectious and non-infectious diseases and their histories, from a nonclinical point of view; it is written to support the needs of health education students and professionals, rather than clinicians. Including an overview of the principles of disease occurrence and of the body's defenses, it provides key details and stimulating information regarding the body's vulnerability to disease.

  • This thoroughly updated edition includes new and updated coverage of new or emerging diseases and health threats, such as SARS, Hantavirus, West Nile Virus, Ebola, and diseases that relate to bioterrorism. Revised chapter pedagogy includes behavioral objectives listed at the beginning of each chapter, as well as critical thinking questions added to the case studies.
  • The revised companion website now features instructor and student resources, including a Student's Guide offering a review question for every question on the test.
