Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

The purpose of this qualitative study is to explore the health beliefs of community-dwelling African American male elders and the activities or behaviors associated with these beliefs. This research topic will advance the practice of OT through providing a client-centered perspective of the major influences on health behaviors and the role of engagement for a high-risk minority population.
