Organizations listed in this section focus on: (1) pregnancy and childbirth; (2) infant health; (3) child health; (4) adolescent health; (5) school health; (6) women's health; (7) nutrition; (8) genetic services; (9) chronic illness and disability; (10) special health care needs; (11) public health programs and services; (12) health care providers. The second section lists self-help clearinghouses which collect and disseminate information about local self-help groups and assist in the formation of new groups. This section is arranged alphabetically by state. Two indexes are included; the first is a detailed subject index and the second is an alphabetical list of all organizations covered. (RJC)
