About the Author

Ann Ehrlich is an experienced teacher, professional author, and lifelong student. Considered one of the leading experts in the field of medical terminology since 1988, she has written numerous books on such health topics as dental assisting, practice management, speech therapy and lymphedema.


Carol L. Schroeder has been working for more than 15 years to find innovative ways to present medical terminology at a level appropriate for this text's students. 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—to enable instructors to present engaging courses that help all students succeed.


Laura Ehrlich, a Registered Nurse in the emergency department at Kaiser's South San Francisco Medical Center, 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 and technology. Previously, she helped develop and present employee training for the Nursing Education Council at San Leandro Hospital.


Katrina A. Schroeder 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 eating disorders, obesity, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Katrina also writes guides and blogs for the Center for Young Women's Health and runs a small private practice in Brookline, Mass.
