The Thirteenth Edition of Access to Health makes personal health engaging for students to learn and easier for instructors to teach by focusing on the most important real-world issues and topics, highlighting a focus on technology and money.

Long known for its currency, research, and strength in behavior change, Access to Health provides access to information through a consistent framework for motivating students to make healthy life choices. As a teacher, mentor, and researcher, Rebecca J. Donatelle knows the health issues that are important to today’s students. Through her friendly writing style Donatelle addresses students’ concerns and teaches them to be savvy and critical consumers of health information.

The Thirteenth Edition adds new features highlighting health topics centering around money and technology issues. Additionally, the book references one Video Tutor per chapter with QR codes. Students simply scan the code with a reader on their phone and quickly and easily view a short little “movie” that makes a tricky concept easy to understand. As always, the book’s attractive design, imaginative art, unique mini-chapters, and robust media make learning personal health more accessible.

Access to Health provides hands-on practical tools that help students effect healthy changes in their lives.
