The Changing Health Interests of College Students.
Sutherland, Mary S.
The author presents a summary of various major health interest studies conducted with college-level students during the period 1921-1977, and discusses the possibilities for using these results in curriculum planning in health education. Studies cited include: Nemir (1965), Oberteuffer (1927), Rooks (1935), Kitzinger (1950), Humphrey (1952), Stiles and Watson (1955), Lantagne (1952), Whitley (1957), Pangle (1959), Engs (1970), and Goodrow (1977). Identified as trends emerging from these studies were (1) a concentration on exercise and physical fitness during the war years, (2) emphasis on alcohol, tobacco, and drugs from the fifties through the seventies, and (3) an increasing concern with environmental influences through the seventies. It was felt that the identification of interest areas could provide the professional health educator with help in planning curricula to meet current health concerns and in this manner might aid in the establishment of more healthy behavior patterns and a better standard of living.
