dc.description.abstract Are you "turning on" your class to health education? Are you capturing the interests of your students? Do you know your students' major health concerns? If health education classes are to be relevant and meaningful, the answers to these questions must be "yes." The first step in changing these answers to the affirmative is to find out what students want to know about health. This was accomplished in a recent survey conducted by Engs (1) of 285 Personal Health students at the University of Oregon. The problem was to determine the general health concerns of college students and how these are affected by sex, birth order, and religion. A health concern, as defined for this study, is that which causes an individual to feel anxious, worried, interested in or disturbed because of it's potentiality of affecting his, his family's, or his society's physical, mental, or social well-being. en
