How can we help people
make better choices about
their own health?

Hearst and OpenGrounds invite UVA undergraduates, graduate students, and post-docs to submit the most innovative ideas to build a healthier society, one at a time or together.

Student Health Attitudes Survey

Hearst Business Media is hoping to learn more about how young people think about and make decisions about their own health. OpenGrounds and Hearst Business Media are working with Survey Monkey on a survey to gain insight into college age attitudes toward health and health care. This survey will provide a common information resource for those involved in the competition, as well as an interesting window into the beliefs, practices, and motivations of the age group.
