A significant amount of the mortality and morbidity experienced by Americans of all ages today is preventable.
Research directed toward the identification of health promotion needs of traditional students in college environments may contribute to the development and implementation of programs and activities that assist students to adopt healthy lifestyle behaviors throughout their life spans.
The purpose of this descriptive survey study was to identify the health promotion needs of traditional students in a college environment.
More specifically, the research question was :
What are the health promotion needs of traditional students in a college environment ?
Subjects were male and female students, 18-21 years of age, and enrolled in a full-time (minimum of 12 hours) program of study at one of two college campuses in a metropolitan southern city.
One of these was a 2-year state-affiliated community college and the other was a private 4-year coeducation university.
A randomized sample of 148 subjects was computed.
Results of this study emphasize the distinctive individual and group health promotion needs of traditional students in a college environment.
Identification of the health promotion needs of this population will enable health care providers to develop interventions to assist students in developing healthy lifestyle behaviors.
