Congratulations to Dr. Seth Noar on the publication of his new book, “eHealth Applications: Promising Strategies for Behavior Change.” The book was published in March of 2012 as part of Routlege’s communication series, and it was co-edited with Dr. Nancy Harrington, Professor of Communication at the University of Kentucky.

This volume 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 technology-based interventions for public health promotion and it explores the rapid growth of an innovative interdisciplinary field. The 15 chapters in the book were written by experts in the field, and they discuss key eHealth applications by presenting research examining a variety of technology-based applications. The Editors also summarize the latest in eHealth research in introductory and concluding chapters, including a range of computer, Internet, and mobile applications, and 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.

Providing a timely and comprehensive review of current tools for health communication, eHealth Applications is a must-read for scholars, students, and researchers in health communication, public health, and health education.
