Women's organizations concerned with the promotion of health, and teachers in schools, colleges and universities are just beginning to appreciate the difficulties of proper education on health matters. For this group the present volume of outlines is planned particularly, and by them it is likely to be especially welcomed. Each of the outlines is preceded by a text and followed by special questions and a bibliography. Numerous charts and graphs supplement the facts made available in the outlines themselves. The appendix provides outlines for case records as well as a list of organizations interested in the health field. The book will no doubt require revision as continued experience is gained in this work. For the present, it constitutes one of the most useful volumes in the field that it covers.
