The High School Health Fair.
Novick, Lloyd F.; And Others
In response to unmet health needs of high school youth particularly those in ghetto schools, health fairs were organized at three inner-city high schools in New York. The purposes of all three fairs were similar: to disseminate health information, to perform selected health testing, to provide follow-up activities when necessary, and to engender familiarity and positive attitudes towards preventive health measures and medical care. The fairs were a combined effort of students, faculty, the health department, and other related agencies. This paper analyzes the events preceding initiation of the fair, the planning of the fair, the screening of results, educational efforts, and follow-up activities in an effort to determine the effectiveness of these fairs as an alternate approach to school health problems.
