Health Beliefs of College Students Born in the United States, China, and India
Rothstein, William G.; Rajapaksa, Sushama
Journal of American College Health, v51 n5 p189-194 Mar 2003
The authors surveyed 243 urban public university students who were born in the United States, China, and India to compare the health beliefs of the China-born, India-born, and US-born students. Although the China- and India-born students shared beliefs in many preventive and therapeutic practices of Western medicine with the US-born students, they retained some of their traditional health beliefs. This suggests that student health service clinicians should assess students' cultural beliefs and individualize healthcare for students from different countries. (Contains 4 tables.)
