about

"Historically neither the health care system nor the government knew or wanted to know about SIDS. Bergman, who has worked with parents and with a small number of professionals, was president of the National SIDS Foundation (1972-77), got SIDS research into federal programs, and provided help for bereaved parents--counselling rather than jail. . . . This book is must reading for health care providers and for government health policymakers. It should be in all libraries. Rarely does a book offer so much insight into human need and into political medicine. Highly recommended." Choice "This is a very useful book that describes the valuable contribution that a dedicated public spirited pediatrician can make to promote the health of children in the United States." JAMA

?Historically neither the health care system nor the government knew or wanted to know about SIDS. Bergman, who has worked with parents and with a small number of professionals, was president of the National SIDS Foundation (1972-77), got SIDS research into federal programs, and provided help for bereaved parents--counseling rather than jail. . . . The book focuses on bureaucrats concerned with their own jobs. Bergman names names and hands out praise where due. . . . This book is must reading for health care providers and for government health policymakers. It should be in all libraries. Rarely does a book offer so much insight into human need and into political medicine. Highly recommended.?-Choice
