A complete guide to health promotion across diverse populations, at all stages of life, written for undergraduate and graduate courses in health promotion and disease prevention, as well as for practicing health professionals. The text covers individual and community models guiding health promotion interventions, strategies to implement and evaluate programs, and the evolving role of digital technology in improving efficacy. The eight edition focuses on increasing access to innovative health programs for all populations, especially those most vulnerable, and on promoting self-care for individuals and communities. Learning activities and resources challenge students to think critically to advance in the field of health promotion." -- Back cover.
