Summary

Designed as one of a series of modules in consumer education this booklet focuses on health problems from the consumer angle. It is designed to supplement the comprehensive health strands published by the New York State Education Department, and to be used as materials for an elective course. The module is constructed so that the student can achieve the following objectives: be able to state major achievements and unsolved problems in the health field; know how to seek qualified medical care services; learn to eat wisely, and avoid the use of unnecessary food supplements; develop a healthy skepticism about advertising claims for over-the-counter drugs; cut costs in shopping for drugs; become familiar with government programs for medical care services; state how Federal agencies operate to provide consumer protection; use sources of consumer information in the health field; and give thoughtful consideration to proposals now being offered for change.
