With the community-based approach, behavioral and social sciences have been increasingly integrated into public health, demonstrating that they can contribute to understanding the role of risk behaviors and risk-group characteristics for health promotion and disease control and prevention. The authors of this book provide a showcase of successful examples of integrating behavioral and social sciences with public health, and they challenge public health specialists and behavioral and social scientists to meld their work in more effective ways.
