"The story of this book began twelve 12 years ago when three friends--a health educator, a family physician, and a family therapist--had a conversation about their beliefs about teaching health.

Many personal health books at the time focused on personal responsibility for health. While it is indeed a major part of health, we wanted to emphasize a model where individuals make health decisions within the context of their relationships, cultures, communities, policies, and physical surroundings. What eventually came of that conversation was the decision to create a book that emphasizes putting personal health in context"--
