Geisel Series in Global Health and Medicine
Editors: Lisa V. Adams, MD and John R. Butterly, MD, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth

This series, sponsored by Dartmouth College Press, draws on the scholarly and practical expertise of a diverse group of health care practitioners and public health professionals engaged in the wide range of challenging health issues faced by low-income countries around the globe. Books in the series vary: they may have a geographical focus, such as Central America; a topical focus, such as surgery; or offer a look at a particular set of health issues in their environmental and political contexts. All books in the series speak to medical students, health care and public health professionals, and anyone interested in engaging in global health work or learning more about the issues and problems facing our global society.
