"For many generations in Newfoundland professional medical treatment was not readily available -- it was the responsibility of the whole community, with knowledge of cures and prevention being passed on from the community elders. 'Healthways' began as an exploration of changing health carae beliefs and practices inNewfoundland during the first half of the twentieth century. The authors s ought to capture the changes through the voices of those who participated in them. One rason for the exploration was to look not only at the dramatic impact of changes in health care, but also in Newfoundland lifestyles. Their thought was that because of the chagnes Newfoundland's older and younger generations may well have very different values and understandings about living healthy lives." - from the rear cover.
