Technology-Based Health Promotion

Synopsis

Technology-Based Health Promotion by Sheana S. Bull

Designed for courses in health promotion, public health, health science, and social science, Technology-Based Health Research & Program Evaluation examines the role that technology can play in the promotion of health and the prevention of disease. The author also cautions that we need to consider ways to maximize technology for health promotion without sacrificing the critical and effective traditional strategies that we know can be effective to help people choose and sustain healthy behaviors.
