This volume addresses the relationship of adult education and health from different perspectives. One task of adulthood is caring for one's health and, for many, caring for the health of children, a partner or spouse, and/or aging parents. Changes in health or the desire for improved health often prompt the need for individuals to learn--and adult education can play a vital role in enabling this learning.

Editor Lilian H. Hill, associate professor of adult education at the University of Southern Mississippi, and contributing authors assemble a comprehensive review of the critical issues involved including

  • How adults learn while coping with chronic illness
  • Health education within adult literacy, adult basic education, and English as a Second Language classes
  • Approahces to help adults evaluate and learn from online information
  • The influence of globalism on health
  • and more.
Concluding with Hill's own argument that health is a social justice issue, the volume illustrates how adult educators need to be involved in health education because they have valuable skills and knowledge to contribute, and because it is a meaningful arena in which to demonstrate the field's commitment to equity and social justice.

This is the 130th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education. Noted for its depth of coverage, New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education is an indispensable series that explores issues of common interest to instructors, administrators, counselors, and policymakers in a broad range of adult and continuing education settings, such as colleges and universities, extension programs, businesses, libraries, and museums.

From the Back Cover:

One task of adulthood is caring for one’s health, and, for many, caring for the health of children, a spouse or significant other, or aging parents. Health changes over time in response to wellness activities, aging, or disease. Adult learning is central to people’s abilities to cope with changing physical abilities, medical conditions, and the changes in lifestyle and social conditions resulting from them. Chapters in this volume address:

· How adults learn while coping with chronic illness

· Curriculum design for a program for parents with special needs children

· Health education within adult literacy, adult basic education, and English as a Second Language classes

· Ways to address the needs of adults who have low levels of health literacy

· Means of increasing cultural competence among health workers to meet the needs of diverse patients

· Community education performed by trained indigenous community health advisors

· Approaches to help adults evaluate and learn from online information

· The influence of globalism on health

· Ways that health education can be a social justice issue

This diversity of arenas prompts new roles for adult educators. They provide health education alone or in collaboration with health professionals, and they educate health professionals about adults' learning needs, especially individuals who have low levels of health literacy and are from diverse cultural backgrounds. They create meaningful curricula, assist individuals to interpret health information, and influence the design of online information. Other important contributions include training local individuals to serve as community health advisors, helping adults cope with health challenges rooted in increasing globalism, and working for social justice. Finally, adult educators can work with communities to create health-related public policy that contributes to improved quality of life.
