Your Health Today teaches personal health from a perspective of social responsibility. While each of us has a unique set of individual characteristics that shape our health, environmental factors have an impact on our well-being, too. Your Health Today incorporates the individual, interpersonal, and broader social factors that affect our health, acting as a guide for healthy living in college and beyond. The student-focused features in the eighth edition of Your Health Today highlight current topics, illustrate concepts with new photos and graphs, and invite dialogue among personal health students. These features serve as entry points to classroom discussion, critical thought, and practical application of health concepts to students' lives. Many also have accompanying assignable online activities within McGraw Hill Connect®.
