In recent years there has been increasing awareness of the demands that ill-health places on national resources. As a consequence, there has been a greater emphasis placed on prevention of illness, and an encouragement of health promotion. Pharmacists, since they regularly come into contact with both healthy and sick members of the public, are thus ideally placed to advice and influence people to lead healthy lifestyles and thus possibly prevent future illness. The Handbook of Pharmacy Health Education contains a wealth of information that the health professional, and particularly the pharmacist, can utilise in promoting healthy living. This new edition of the Handbook has been extensively revised by a team of health professionals and reflects changes in practice, therapeutics, and health promotion. An additional new chapter on companion animals and human health has also been included.

Published in 1959, Robert Wilson's account of the development of the Georgia pharmacy system begins with the founding of the state and explains that the search for drugs was a main factor in the original colonization. As he traces the evolution of medicine, Wilson identifies the pioneering figures of pharmacy in Georgia, disease and drug problems that confronted the colony, self-diagnosis and home treatment, epidemics, and the advertising and sale of medicinal products. Wilson describes the struggles Georgia encountered, including the development of a State Board of Health, as it was created in 1875, disbanded in 1877, and resurrected twenty-five years later. He also highlights Georgia's many accomplishments, including granting a woman a pharmaceutical license in 1903.
