In addition, the encyclopedia provides useful synergies for sociologists, anthropologists, and undergraduates with some interest in the interface of human health and behavior. Areas covered include quality of life and lifespan issues; population, health policy, and advocacy issues; health promotion and disease prevention; behavioral care in all types of settings; biological, psychological, and person factors in health behavior change; professional development and practice-related issues; and  much more. This encyclopedia is the first resource to which readers turn for factual, relevant, and comprehensive information to aid in delivering the highest quality services.
