About the Author

Carol L. Schroeder has 20 years of experience in finding innovative ways to present medical terminology at a level appropriate for students. Her background in technical writing, translating and research is invaluable in continuously updating content and creating innovative activities and approaches--such as the Medical Mysteries and Human Touch stories featured in this text--to enable instructors to present engaging course material that helps all students succeed. Laura Ehrlich, a registered nurse, enjoys the fast-paced, challenging environment of the emergency department, as well as the knowledge that her skills save lives. She excels at explaining medical terminology to patients and training other nurses on new procedures, equipment and technology. She is a board-certified emergency nurse, and has been nominated for the DAISY (R) Award for Extraordinary Nurses. Katrina Schroeder Smith is a registered dietitian who trained and works at Boston Children's Hospital, a Harvard Teaching Hospital. After finishing her dietetic internship at Simmons College, she completed the prestigious LEAH (Leadership Education in Adolescent Health) Fellowship in the adolescent department at Boston Children's Hospital. Currently, she is a clinical dietitian in the adolescent clinic there, specializing in the nutritional care of teenagers with HIV, eating disorders, elevated body weight and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Katrina also writes guides and blogs for the Center for Young Women's Health and runs a small private practice in Brookline, Massachusetts. The late Ann Ehrlich, who founded this series in 1988, was an experienced teacher, professional author and lifelong student. Considered one of the leading experts in the field of medical terminology, she wrote numerous books on health topics such as dental assisting, practice management, speech therapy and lymphedema.
