The Sixth Editionfeatures updated information throughout, significantly re-worked Chapters 2 (Starting the Planning Process) and 3 (Models for Program Planning in Health Promotion) for a more streamlined presentation, a more robust supplements package, and more information on program management and administration. It has been thoroughly reviewed by both practitioners and professors to reflect the latest trends in the field. "[Planning, Implementing, and Evaluating Health Promotion Programs: A Primer] provides a very clear and concise explanation on how to develop a Health Promotion Program. The book provides excellent examples and activities for application of Program Planning as well as ties in each step so the final process makes sense. I also like that the book prepares and encourages students to take the CHES exam as well as gives them the tools they need to be successful." - Aimee Richardson, Adjunct Faculty, American University, Washington, DC
