  • "This book provides the basic foundation, the "what" of maternal child health, and is useful as an introduction. Any student desiring to know more about the topics covered in the book will do well to use the references at the end of each chapter. This edition, with updates on oral health, environmental health, global health, and health disparities, provides some important updates from the 2005 edition."
