For many generations in Newfoundland professional medical treatment was not readily available-it was the responsibility of the whole community, with knowledge of cures and prevention being passed on from teh community elders.

Healthways began as an exploration of changing health care beliefs and practices in Newfoundland during the first half of the twentieth century. The authors-an anthropologist, a socio-linguist and a medical doctor--sought to capture the changes through the voices of those who participated in them. One reason for the exploration was to look not only at the dramatic impact of changes in health care, but also in Newfoundland lifestyles. Their thought was that because of the changes Newfoundland's older and younger generations may well have very different values and understanding about living healthy lives.

The voices of the elders are printed verbatim with silent editing to smooth reading. While the names of the imformants have been changed, most names mentioned by informants are as given.
