520    Minority status in the United States often accompanies 
       diminished access to education, employment, and 
       subsequently health care. This volume explores factors 
       that have contributed to health disparities among racial, 
       ethnic, and sexual minorities. Focused on developing 
       strategies for understanding these disparities and 
       promoting wellness in minority communities, the authors 
       highlight social forces such as racism, ethnocentrism, 
       sexism, and homophobia, which continue to influence not 
       only access to and quality of care but also perception and
       trust of health care professionals. The authors identify 
       several common themes, including the importance of 
       communication, intentional and unintentional 
       discriminatory structures, and perhaps most significantly,
       the role of culturally relevant learning sites. This is 
       the 142nd volume of the Jossey Bass series New Directions 
       for Adult and Continuing Education. Noted for its depth of
       coverage, it explores issues of common interest to 
       instructors, administrators, counselors, and policymakers 
       in a broad range of education settings, such as colleges 
       and universities, extension programs, businesses, 
       libraries, and museums
