The diversity of the United States is valuable because every culture brings with it strengths and differing perspectives. Although knowing about every culture is not possible, recognizing cultural similarities and differences is essential for delivering effective community services and one-on-one health care to individuals. The thoroughly updated third edition of Multicultural Health provides an introduction and overview to the concepts and theories related to cultural issues in health and serves as a primer on health issues and practices specific to certain cultural groups.

Divided into three distinct units (The Foundations; Specific Cultural Groups; and Looking Ahead), this book contains robust pedagogy in each chapter to stimulate critical thinking and classroom and online discussions. For this new edition, the authors have added a second case study to each chapter, added new topics (e.g., generational and rural/urban cultures), and have updated and/or added statistical, legal, and health information (including COVID-19) throughout the book.

This is a must-have text for instructors and students in both undergraduate and graduate-level programs across all of the health professions.

Lois Ritter earned a doctorate in education and master’s degrees in health science, health care administration, and cultural and social anthropology. She has taught at the university level for more than 20 years and has led national and regional research studies on a broad range of public health topics.
Donald H. Graham is an attorney and holds a master’s degree in urban affairs. He has developed and managed client-centered and culturally appropriate health and human service programs for more than 30 years.
