Description

iHealth 4th Edition is an integrated print-digital learning system that provides a framework for building solid research skills, critical thinking skills, and behavior change skills that will enable students to make good decisions and live more fulfilling lives. The 4th Edition remains concise, conversational, lively, flexible, and digital. The authors focus on key issues and work from the premise that being health literate is not mastery of facts alone; it’s about behavior change, self-assessment, and decision making.
