Behavioral Medicine Approaches to Cardiovascular Disease Prevention

By Kristina Orth-Gomér; Neil Schneiderman | Go to book overview
A major emphasis and strength of a community intervention program should be attempts to change social and physical environments in the community more conducive to health and healthy lifestyles.
Major community intervention programs can be useful for a target community, but can also have broader impact as a national demonstration program. For this, proper evaluation should be carried out and results disseminated.
