This book is written to fill a gap, as many other community health groups, especially local Healthy Start organizations at regional and national meetings, have asked me questions about how to incorporate a GIS into their program. So far, little has been written on this subject. Equally so, my GIS students have a plethora of “texts” that adequately describe the right buttons to push and how metadata should be written, but again, relatively little exists in terms of a detailed, contextual work that helps one understand why one would want to use a GIS. I hope these two audiences will start to meet up at some point, maybe even as a result of this book. A few of my GIS students have already been “turned onto” public health and medical geography.
The Stop TB Department of the World Health Organization gratefully acknowledges the members of the Guidelines Group (listed in Annex 6), including Jeremiah Muhwa Chakaya, the Chairperson. Richard Menzies (McGill University, Montreal, Canada), Karen Steingart and Phillip Hopewell (University of California, San Francisco, USA) and Andrew Nunn and Patrick Phillips (British Medical Research Council) led the teams that compiled, synthesized and evaluated the evidence underlying each recommendation. Suzanne Hill and Holger Schünemann facilitated the meeting of the Guidelines Group. Useful feedback was obtained from the External Review Group (also listed in Annex 6). Additional feedback and support were provided by the Guidelines Review Committee (Chair, Suzanne Hill; Secretariat, Faith McLellan).

Designed for the one-semester course, Seeley’s Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology is written to allow instructors the ability to accomplish one overall goal: to teach the basics of A&P while fostering the skill of problem solving. Through learning how to solve problems and think critically, students learn A&P based on two themes: the relationship between structure and function, and homeostasis.
