Core Concepts in Health has maintained its leadership in the field of personal health education for more than 30 years. Since pioneering the concept of self-responsibility for personal health in 1976, millions of students have used this book to become active, informed participants in their own health care. Now, the Canadian edition builds off of this standard to ensure relevancy and currency for Canadian students and faculty.

In keeping with twenty-first-century technology, we are also adding an exciting digital dimension to the Canadian edition. Connect Personal Health is an online platform that allows instructors to connect with their students and students to connect with their instructors and coursework. Connect adds a level of enhanced online teaching and learning potential to Core Concepts in Health that benefits both instructors and students.

To reflect Canadian instructors' preferences, the chapter sequence has been re-ordered and content dealing with "Understanding Sexuality" (now Part Four) has been condensed and moved later in the text. In addition, the box program has been streamlined to avoid redundancies. The Canadian edition will be 21 chapters, two fewer than the US edition.

Connect - Your Study and Testing Program with e-book - is included with each new copy of the text. For more information, go to
