Description

The newly revised Access to Health, Twelfth Edition makes health more accessible–for students to learn about, for instructors to teach, and for individuals to achieve.

 

Long known for its currency, research, and strength in behavior change, Access to Health provides just that: access to health information and the student’s own health potential through a consistent framework for motivating students to make healthy life choices. In the Twelfth Edition, access to learning about personal health has been enhanced through the book’s eye-popping design, imaginative art, unique Focus On mini-chapters, and robust media.

 

The Twelfth Edition offers superior access to teaching personal health with the inclusion of Focus On mini-chapters.

 

With the goal of guiding students to improve their own health, the Twelfth Edition provides greater access to achievingoptimal health through new features and supplemental materials. Behavior change coverage has been expanded in this edition with a completely re-written introductory chapter focusing on the steps needed to change one’s behavior and individually designed self-assessments.

 

As a teacher, mentor, and researcher, Rebecca J. Donatelle knows the health issues that are important to today’s students. Through her engaging and friendly writing style, Donatelle addresses students’ concerns and teaches them how to be savvy and critical consumers of health information. Access to Health provides hands-on practical tools that help students effect healthy changes in their lives.
