Details: About the Author 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 such health topics as dental assisting, practice management, speech therapy and lymphedema. Carol L. Schroeder has 20 years of experience in finding innovative ways to present medical terminology at a level appropriate for this text's readers. Her background in technical writing, translating and research is invaluable in continuously updating the content and in creating innovative activities and approaches -- such as the Simplified Syllabus and Human Touch stories -- that enable instructors to present engaging courses that help 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. Katrina 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). She also writes guides and blogs for the Center for Young Women's Health and runs a small private practice in Brookline, Massachusetts.
