About the Book

All too often the medical profession overlooks the fact that African-American women have special needs when it comes to their health. The African American Woman’s Health Book is the first comprehensive diagnostic and treatment manual that focuses exclusively on the major health problems common in black and minority women. Dr. Alcena addresses factors that predispose black women to hypertension, sickle-cell anemia, and other conditions that are almost exclusively found in people of African descent, as well as common ailments such as stroke, high cholesterol, heart disease, cancer, gynecological and obstetrical diseases, AIDS, depression, alcoholism, and drug addiction.
