"This is is a major volume concerning the influence that culture has on how individuals perceive, receive, and provide health care. Understanding the cultural context in which one communicates about heath is a growing concern for practitioners, researchers, and patients alike. This collection of theoretically diverse applied research in health communication provides important insights into the ways in which socio-cultural constructs influence health care." Annette Madlock Gatison, Southern Connecticut State University
