The Health Challenges of Urban Latino College Students as Revealed through Student Journaling
Rowland, Amy L.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v7 n2 p131-143 2008
Because of the unique health risks faced by the Hispanic population and the notoriously poor health habits of college students, this study examines the health challenges faced by Latino college students enrolled at an urban commuter institution. A thematic analysis reveals the top themes for males and females as healthy eating, weight management, and exercise. Alcohol use management is a theme for males, whereas stress management is found as a theme for females. (Contains 1 note.)
