The knowledge path covers topics relevant to health promotion and disease prevention for all women, and specifically for women with mental and behavioral health disorders. Topics include: reproductive and maternal health, intentional injury, chronic conditions, healthy behaviors, and health disparities. Contents include websites, distance!
learning tools, reports, data and statistics, journal articles and other literature and research, and guides on related topics. The knowledge path is available at http://www.mchlibrary.org/KnowledgePaths/kp_WISH.html
