Abstract/Description

Health education is a tool used in Public Health to increase individuals understanding of both positive and negative public health practices. These practices can both benefit and harm an individual’s health. The more health education individuals are exposed to increases someone’s ability to make decisions that will benefit them and their health. Using the time that has already been set aside for an individual’s health is a great place to implement health education. What this study aimed to asses was individuals perceptions/willingness to participate in provided health education implementations while they waited to see a healthcare professional. We wanted to understand if individuals felt that because they had already allocated that time to improve their own health, would they feel more open to farthing that alluded time to improve their health education. Understanding not only if individuals were willing to participate but also what healthcare topics they felt were most important to their personal health and what individuals thought about current implementations were also goals of this study.
