Special features include:

  • A step-by-step guide to planning, implementing, and marketing community health programs;
  • Strategies for wellness nutrition, fitness, stress management, and smoking cessation;
  • Strategies for preventing violence in the schools and larger community;
  • Tips on sharpening communication skills with individuals and groups; and
  • Models of culturally sensitive health promotion programs.
