Description

The newly revised Access to Health, Twelfth Edition makes health more accessible for students to learn, for instructors to teach, and for individuals to achieve. Long known for its currency, research, and strength in behavior change for personal health students, Access to Health provides just that: access to health information and your own health potential through a consistent framework that will motivate you to make healthy life choices. The Twelfth Edition ramps up the accessibility of good health with an eye-popping design, imaginative art, unique Focus On chapters, and robust media.

 

The tools for behavior change have been expanded in this edition with a completely re-written introductory chapter focusing on the steps needed to change your behavior, individually-designed self-assessments, and new media. This is just the standalone book.

  

As a teacher, mentor, and researcher, Rebecca J. Donatelle knows the health issues that are important to you. Through her engaging and friendly writing style, Donatelle addresses your concerns and teaches you how to be a savvy and critical consumer of health information. Access to Health provides hands-on practical tools that will help you access healthy changes in your life.
