    If you have joined the Peace Corps, you have read this bookand probably reread it about twenty five times after It is an immense source of knowledge of medical conditions, treatments and resources available for communities without professional help available Everything from how to take blood pressure and what those results actually mean to a differential diagnosis of stomach pain, it has become essential to me in working with community health workers learning to deal wi
