In addition to her varied teaching responsibilities, Becky is an active researcher in the area of health behaviors and behavior change including studies with a focus on motivating behavior change, the use of social support in facilitating behavior change, the use of community supports to assist individuals in changing high-risk behaviors, and the role of stress in health and disease.

 

Becky has also conducted extensive research in the area of decision-making and factors influencing the use of alternative and traditional health care providers for treatment of low back pain; illness and sick role behaviors; women’s decisions about treatment for breast cancer and cardiac rehabilitation.

 

Donatelle has received the Leadership Award, outstanding teacher award in her college, and a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Presidential Award for Promising New Research in the Smoke-Free Families National Initiative. She has been an active member of several state and national committees and task forces and continues to work to reduce risk for high risk populations, particularly women and the elderly.

Format: Paperback
This book is perfect for what its used for. Obviously by a college level much of this info is common knowledge but its a great reminder of what it takes to live a healthy life. For any one required to purchase this book or the 9th ed for a class they are exactly the same thing. The only difference is one chapter in 8 is split into 2 chapters in 9. Save your self money and just by the 8th edition

The book is easy to read. It contains very useful information that a college student needs to know to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I love the exercises that come in each section because it makes someone realize if he/she has been following a sedentary lifestyle and it helps him/her fix the problem.

The price was great! Paid .50 instead of $130 like the rest of my class! I used this edition for a class that was using the 10th edition. It was missing a little bit of information..(I got those questions wrong on the test). But overall it was worth the savings and was still clearly written.

This book would have cost 3x as much in most other places I found it, so I am able to own for a fraction of the cost and benefit from not having to resell it.
