Full of current information, visual spark, and written to encourage behavior change, AN INVITATION TO HEALTH: BRIEF, FOURTH EDITION introduces students to research, information, and recommendations related to health and healthy lifestyles. Praised for its clear and engaging writing style, Dianne Hales' text addresses the issues related to health and wellness that affect college students now as well as the issues that they can face in their future. The "brief" form of the more comprehensive AN INVITATION TO HEALTH, ELEVENTH EDITION, the new FOURTH EDITION of AN INVITATION TO HEALTH: BRIEF continues to emphasize the importance of making healthy choices and covers a broad range of topics and research related to personal health and wellness, from stress on the body to dietary supplements, buying drugs online, binge drinking, quitting smoking, and treating cancer and heart disease. Students are well informed of the latest health guidelines, research, and trends so they can make responsible and informed decisions about their own state of mental, emotional, and physical well being. AN INVITATION TO HEALTH: BRIEF, FOURTH EDITION also comes with a wide-range of teaching and learning resources unlike any other! Besides the exclusive offerings of the CNN Video Today series and InfoTrac College Edition, or the extensive PowerPoint and Online teaching support, we offer TestWell, an online assessment tool that allows students to compare their wellness status in relation to the different dimensions of wellness. Each copy of the text also comes packaged with the exciting and interactive PROFILE PLUS CD-ROM, including self-paced, guided activities appropriate for all health students. In addition, we are now offering JoinIn? on TurningPoint for the growing interest in using Personal Response Systems in the classroom. Whether supporting active learning or active teaching, this text still has it all!
