Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

iHealth uses a concise, lively conversational style to engage students with personal health issues they and their families face. An emphasis is placed on informed decision-making, developing healthy habits and being proactive.  


iHealth is an integrated print-digital learning system that provides a framework for assessing research and data; developing critical-thinking skills, and driving behavior change that will enable students to make health-enhancing decisions and live more fulfilling lives. The authors focus on key issues and proceed from the premise that being “health literate” is not mastery of facts alone; it's about behavior change, self-assessment, and decision-making. Instructors can easily add their own materials, readings, and assessments to customize the iHealth learning package.
