Cultural Food Practices

The incidence of diabetes is growing at an epidemic rate in the U.S. and along with changing demographics, the health system and its practitioners will need more competence with culturally diverse populations. This book is written very clearly by nutrition practitioners on 15 different cultures. It will be useful to anyone working in health care.
