How to Keep Your Husband Alive: An Empowerment Guide for Women Who Care about Their Man’s Health

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2002 - Spring


by Siegfried J. Kra, M.D., associate clinical professor of medicine

Lebhar-Friedman Books (New York) 2002

In a new approach to men’s health, Kra explores the manner in which women can help to prolong the life span of their mate. Kra encourages women to develop simple communication techniques for nudging their man to seek medical attention when warning signs such as fatigue, weight gain or loss and changes in breathing patterns and alcohol use are evident. In clear and direct language, Kra offers a guide for women to the appropriate questions to ask and the relevant tests to request once their mate has scheduled that first appointment.
