Welcome to the website for Goldman, Troisi, Rexrode: Women and Health, 2nd Edition.

Women and Health, Second Edition is a comprehensive reference which addresses health issues affecting women of all ages - from adolescence through maturity. It goes far beyond other books on this topic, which concentrate only on reproductive health, and has a truly international perspective. It covers key issues ranging from osteoporosis to breast cancer and other cancers, domestic violence, sexually transmitted diseases, occupational hazards, eating disorders, heart disease and other chronic illnesses, substance abuse, and societal and behavioral influences on health. Women’s health is defined in broad terms - including not only those conditions that are unique to or occur more frequently in women, but also those that present differently or are treated differently in women.
