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.
