A textbook that provides the background theory, the anatomy and physiology, and the basic concepts that will help students to make sound, well-informed decisions in areas that will impact their health now and in the future

Web-based resources designed to create a multidimensional learning experience

Something no other text can offer. Throughout the course, each student will develop his or her personal Total Wellness Plan™.
