Celebrating National Women's Health Week CTPL Style
In month of May we recognize the importance of -- and explore new innovations in -- women's health. In magazines, on the news, and on the internet information about your health is everywhere. There are mountains of information to sift through, consume, or evaluate, all in the interest of finding the truth. Yet, it seems that yesterday's truth is tomorrow's dispelled theory. There's no better time to take a look at some of this year's trending new books published about women's health concerns. All book covers are linked. Feel free to click to find out more information or request a copy to check out!
New dimensions in women's health / William Alexander, Linda Lewis Alexander, Judith LaRosa, Helaine "...a practical and biological approach to understanding the health of all women inclusive of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, culture and sexual orientation."
Diagnosis female : how medical bias endangers women's health / Emily Dwass. "Women often experience misdiagnosis and ignorance of their symptoms, in part because for centuries females were excluded from important medical research."
The Women's Brain Book: The neuroscience of health, hormones and happiness
"This is a book about what happens inside the brains and bodies of women as they move through the phases of life, and the unique - and often misunderstood - effects of female biology and hormones."
Breasts: the owner's manual : every woman's guide to reducing cancer risk, making treatment choices
"Most women don’t want to hear about breast cancer unless they have it and need to make some decisions, but these days news about breast cancer—the number one killer of women ages twenty to fifty nine—is everywhere."

"Fully revised and updated to include the very latest treatment innovations and research data, and reflecting today’s woman’s proactive involvement in her own health care, this important new edition will help women everywhere enjoy vibrant health with far fewer medical interventions."
