Media Messages and Public Health (2008)
co-edited by Jennifer Manganello

Jennifer Manganello's Media Messages and Public Health: A Decisions Approach to Content Analysis helps researchers examine the impact of media images on public health issues such as smoking cessation and sexual behavior in adolescents. An assistant professor in UAlbany’s School of Public Health, Manganello says that she and her co-editors saw the necessity for the book because no prior works informed researchers about the difficult decisions that confronted them involving public health-related messages and behaviors.
