Community Health Fairs and Intention to Seek Follow-up Care among the Hispanic Population of Dayton, Ohio
The purpose of this study was to better understand the connection between poor health and intention to seek follow-up care. The study focused on the Hispanic population of the Greater Dayton Area. A survey was adapted from the Theory of Planned Behavior which served as the measure for intention to seek follow-up care. This survey was administered at three separate health fairs. The purpose of a community health fair was to provide baseline measurements for participants, including BMI, body composition, blood pressure, blood glucose, triglyceride levels, etc. The intention to seek follow-up care was then compared with BMI, blood glucose levels and triglyceride levels. It was found that what most strongly correlated with intention to seek follow- up care was the attitude held by the participant about access.
