Women face a vast array of health and wellness issues over the course of a lifetime. One of the major goals of “Women’s Health and Wellness: An Illustrated Guide” is to make these issues more understandable and to facilitate communication between women and their health care providers. This book features more than 100 full color-illustrations, providing an at-a-glance understanding of all major women’s health issues, from arthritis and heart disease to diabetes and menopause. It explains what each condition is, lists risk factors and symptoms and offers key prevention and management strategies—all in concise comprehensible language. This book was developed in consultation with 16 medical experts and is grounded in gender-based biology.
As Developmental Editor, Lesley developed the idea for this book and guided the product from concept through development and now serves as the product spokesperson.
