This text provides multidisciplinary, and comprehensive information about aging in diverse racial and ethnic populations in the U.S. It focuses on public health issues as they relate to older minority Americans, addressing social, behavioral, and biological concerns, particularly on the needs of four major ethnic groups: Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, African American, and Native American.
