Thompson, Shawn N.; Chambers, John W., Jr.
Journal of Black Psychology, v26 n3 p330-45 Aug 2000
Investigated three models of relationships between African self-consciousness, health consciousness, and health-promoting behaviors among African American college students. The models included the mediator model, moderator model, and independent model. Surveys of 80 students supported the independent model, suggesting that African self-consciousness and health consciousness contribute uniquely to health-promoting behaviors. (SM)
