About the Author

Rebecca Donatelle has served as a faculty member in the Department of Public Health, College of Health and Human Sciences, at Oregon State University for the last two decades. In that role, she has chaired the department and been program coordinator for the Health Promotion and Health Behavior Program (bachelor’s degree, master of public health, and PhD degree programs), as well as served on over 50 national, state, regional, and university committees focused on improving student academic success and improving the public’s health. Most importantly to her, she has also taught and mentored thousands of undergraduate and graduate students.

 

Dr. Donatelle has a PhD in community health/health promotion and health education, with specializations in health behaviors, aging, and chronic disease prevention, from the University of Oregon; a master of science degree in health education from the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse; and a bachelor of science degree from the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse, with majors in health/physical education and English. In recent years, Donatelle has received several professional awards for leadership, teaching, and service within the university and for her work on developing nationally ranked undergraduate and graduate programs in the health promotion/health behavior areas.

 

Her primary research and scholarship areas have focused on finding scientifically appropriate means of motivating behavior change among resistant populations. Specifically, her work uses incentives, social and community supports, and risk communication strategies in motivating diverse populations to change their risk behaviors. She has worked with pregnant women who smoke in an effort to motivate them to quit smoking, obese women of all ages who are at risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes, prediabetic women at risk for progression to type 2 diabetes, and a wide range of other health issues and problems. Earlier research projects have focused on decision making and factors influencing the use of alternative and traditional health care providers for treatment of low back pain, illness and sick role behaviors, occupational stress and stress claims, and worksite health promotion.

 

More recently, through her writing she has been working to provide scientifically defensible, engaging ways to help students understand today''s complex health and health care challenges, to ask the tough questions, understand that there are often no simple solutions to the myriad of issues we face both in the US and internationally. With this text in particular, she has worked to motivate students to approach their challenges in a mindful, thoughtful way; to take time to notice and to look within and outside themselves in order to really see, hear and feel the life experience to act compassionately toward self and toward others who are struggling with personal challenges. Importantly, she challenges students to ask..."How can I make the world a better place, for me.. for others, and for future generations?...to live more healthfully, and with more enthusiasm?" Whether it be working to improve personal health behaviors, help others who are struggling, or working to improve the social, political, and macro health environment, her goal is to motivate students to become more engaged and be the health change agents of the future.

 

In addition to her ''writing'', Dr. Donatelle enjoys playing acoustic guitar, gardening, camping and socializing with friends and family, and walks with her three rambunctious Westies.

I like this textbook, but the author often presents her opinion as ''facts'' on topics she is partial to, or biased against. A great example is the back-to-back chapters on Alcohol and Tobacco. While the Alcohol chapter was by no means partial to alcohol having any benefits, neither was it so overtly condemning as was the chapter on tobacco. In addition, little ''facts'' like omitting the annual magazine ad budget for alcohol, but gleefully flashing the one for tobacco shows serious methodology issues from this occasionally VERY biased author. In addition, she neglected to mention the studies that I stumbled on with a simple Google keyword search that shows that while tobacco DOES target college students, minorities, and low-income households as some of the biggest concerns with that variety of advertising, that the alcohol companies spend over twice as much ad revenue (for magazines--tobacco CAN"T advertise on TV) and is extremely interested in targeting...MINORS, of all things!! Things like this make what could have been an otherwise five-star text a mere three stars. :/ (Don''t EVEN get me started on the studies that show women who have an abortion suffer no more emotional and mental damage than those who don''t.) Also, I am not Right-Wing or Conservative, as much as it sounds it--I believe in ''gay'' marriage, free\universal healthcare, and other Liberal causes as well. (Truth is, I hate ALL political parties EQUALLY! LOL)
