An Invitation To Health, 4th Canadian Edition

Dianne Hales and Lara Lauzon

This book provides information, advice, recommendations, and research on how you can take charge of your own health.

This is one textbook I am keeping for sure. Great information. And inspirational stories that will last a lifetime. From the chapter on nutrition to the chapter on spirituality I have really learned a lot from this course. I will take what I learned and apply it for the rest of my life!

EPHE 142 Student

I want to start by saying I LOVED the text.  It is so interesting it could honestly be out on a coffee table as much as in a classroom because it is full of current, relevant and interesting information. Fabulous, easy and interesting to read which will appeal to students.
