A group of nursing students at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) is trying to ensure the next generation of nurses is healthy. Their project, Healthy Lifestyle: Diet, Exercise and Rest, has been giving tips on healthy lifestyles to first-year medical, dental and nursing students. The second-year students, during a three-day survey of student health attitudes, were shocked to find many of their peers did not care about what they ate. Coffee Chiu Wing-ho, Eva Yip Tai, Christina Lee Sui-fong, Veronica Wan Hoi-yan, Nancy Ng Hiu-yim, Irene Chow Sau-lin and Joan Lee Tin-yuet worked on the study for two months. 'It was a bit of a surprise to discover medical students were not concerned about the food they ate inside or outside the campus,' Joan Lee Tin-yuet said. The researchers believed the university canteen was partly to blame as it offered a limited choice of healthy food. The group distributed leaflets and set up displays describing which foods were best. Christina Lee Sui-fong, who won an award for the best nursing student at HKU, said more exercise and a positive outlook would help many students.
