Summary:Despite projections of significant growth in older minority populations, researchers have little more than surface-level appreciation of how cultural factors will shape mental and physical health outcomes. This volume is part of a new wave of studies designed to address the issue of recruiting and retaining minority elders for participation in research studies. The authors highlight the strengths and weaknesses of a wide array of research designs, ranging from small, in-depth qualitative studies to randomized, controlled behavioral interventions. Several chapters focus on successes with Africa.
