In Evaluating Health Promotion Programs, Thomas W. Valente, PhD, provides a comprehensive blueprint for the design of research studies to assess the impact of community health initiatives. These health promotion programs include endeavors such as antismoking campaigns and seatbelt safety awareness. This introductory text offers insight into behavioral theory, statistical analysis, and evaluation of program results. With its description of basic principles of study design and details of statistical analysis, Evaluating Health Promotion Programs should be useful to both beginning students and experienced researchers in public health, community medicine, and related disciplines.
