Week 6 – Discussion 1
There are a variety of theories and models that are utilized in health promotion and disease prevention. The theories and models (see article and websites below and review Chapter Three of your text) are used in development of programs to provide a way to understand and explain health behavior. This understanding will guide program efforts in strategy selection for the programs. For this week’s discussion pick one health behavior model or theory and answer the following questions
Feel free to pick a theory and/or model of your choice…nothing complicated. This is a weekly discussion board, no more than 2 or 3 paragraphs only.
