A Longitudinal Analysis of a Peer Health Aide Program.
Martin, Gary L.; And Others
A three-year longitudinal description is presented of a college health aide program, and an assessment is made of the changes resulting from a cutback in funding. In this program students are trained as paraprofessional health aides and serve in this capacity in their group residences for a small weekly salary. A record of the number of visits reported by these aides and the type of indisposition they deal with was compiled over a three-year period. A comparison is made of this record and the services rendered following a considerable cutback in the funding of the program. (JD)
