Assessed the health knowledge of predominantly Mexican American adolescents, noting gender differences. Surveys examining 11 health knowledge categories indicated that, in all but one category, students answered less than half of the questions correctly. Students knew the most about nutrition and the least about communicable diseases. There were significant gender differences in some areas. (Author/SM)
