Overview

This exciting new brief text presents personal health in the context of a changing social and cultural environment. Going beyond behavior change and individual responsibility, it offers a broadened view of health that includes the impact of family, community, and society. It's a new way of looking at health: "It's not just personal..."

"Choice" is another key theme in Your Health Today. Emphasizing the importance of making informed health choices, this text demonstrates how these choices affect an individual’s health--for today and for a lifetime.

The brief version of Your Health Today contains five fewer chapters than the big book, but it still offers in-depth coverage of key topics such as nutrition and fitness and presents complete chapters on genetics, sleep, body image, and spirituality.
