GÉNERO, PRÁTICAS DE SAÚDE E REPRESENTAÇÕES SOCIAIS EM ESTUDANTES UNIVERSITÁRIOS
Júlia Maria Guilherme Ribeiro Antunes
College students are typically well educated, healthy, are a relatively homogeneous and privileged group relatively to socioeconomic culture and “status”, being undoubtedly a potential future leadership that may influence easily other social groups at different times of the cycle life, assuming the role of changing agents. They will also match more motivated to knowledge about behaviors and healthy lifestyles. Health practices are influenced by social representations that individuals and populations integrate into their culture, they explain agreements and disagreements that are sometimes not evident. Health practices and social representations are thus a theoretical object being constructed to further develop its analysis, including understanding whether there are new ways to manage health and disease related to gender. Were surveyed by questionnaire 502 graduate students from Health Science. It was an exploratory, descriptive and cross survey and some results which are presented in this article, which highlights the uniformity of opinions before most of the questions, which may be indicative of a future society formatted, unimaginative, without creativity where the gender gap is scarce and can develop new forms of body management and wellness.
