In this book, the authors present topical research in the study of the racial/ethnic and socioeconomic risk factors and strategies for the elimination of health disparities. Topics discussed include the cessation and prevention of tobacco use for indigenous populations; understanding the true burden of cancer in American Indian and Alaska Native communities; understanding cardiovascular disparities between Maori and non-Maori indigenous populations in New Zealand; reducing health disparities of culturally-diverse minority populations through transcultural nursing in the home; childhood trauma and health disparities; dismantling racism to improve health equity; the impact of language barriers on healthcare utilization among Hispanic construction workers; and white and minority screenings in colorectal cancer prevention.
