Pupil's knowledge about health and illness

Uzi Brook, Michael Heim

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Three hundred twenty high school pupils were evaluated concerning their knowledge about health and disease. The knowledge of 170 students in the first school in which they received lectures and had regular talks about health topics was higher in comparison with the knowledge of 150 students in the second high school who did not receive these lectures. We recommended that health topics be integrated in the school program starting at the first grade and continuing until graduation from high school.
