Health promotion is among the foremost concerns of modern society. As with many problems of considerable social significance, most health problems are caused by what people do and what people do not do. People eat too much, exercise too little, and visit healthcare providers too infrequently, among many other things. Understanding and solving these problems is a task for the behavioral sciences, and applied behavior analysts have been addressing problems related to health and fitness since the earliest days of the field. The primary focus of this chapter is on applied behavior analysis research related to health promotion through diet, exercise, and medication adherence, as addressing these issues would significantly improve health across many populations. Health promotion is a problem that applied behavior analysts continue to address, but we still have considerable work to do.
