Harrington Co-edits New Book on eHealth Applications

Published: Mar 27, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 27, 2012) — A scholarly anthology covering advances in the field of eHealth applications, co-edited by University of Kentucky Communication Professor Nancy Harrington, has been published by Routledge and is now available for purchase from the publisher.

 

Harrington collaborated on the book with former UK faculty member Seth Noar, now an associate professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

 

The book, "eHealth Applications: Promising Strategies for Behavior Change," provides an overview of technological applications in contemporary health communication research, exploring the history and current uses of eHealth applications in disease prevention and management. It focuses on the use of these technology-based interventions for public health promotion and explores the rapid growth of an innovative interdisciplinary field.

 

The chapters in this work, written by national and international experts in the field, discuss key eHealth applications by presenting research examining a variety of technology-based applications. Editors Seth M. Noar and Nancy Grant Harrington summarize the latest in eHealth research, including a range of computer, Internet, and mobile applications, and they offer observations and reflections on this growing area, such as dissemination of programs and future directions for the study of interactive health communication and eHealth.
