Integrating Health Promotion and Disease Prevention into Your Practice
(New York: Springer Publishing Co., 2000)
This is a very readable (my publisher called it "tradey") book on the subject of the title.
From the back cover: Steven Woolf, MD, MPH, Senior Editor of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in Clinical Practice, said: "Most of the leading causes of death and disability in the U.S. are due to health behaviors such as smoking, physically inactivity, and diet. The secret to helping [people] to change [their] health behaviors lies in this book . . . Jonas' 'Ten Central Commandments' are more likely to lengthen and enhance the lives of [people] than most of the tests and treatments administered daily in offices and hospitals."
Michael McGinniss, MD, who founded the office of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in the Dept. of Health and Human Service s in the 1980s, said: “Continuing his career-long leadership in health promotion and disease prevention, Dr. Jonas offers a useful and insightful primer on the range of issues and approaches important to clinicians interested in putting prevention into their practices.”
