Survey shows Harvard doctors practice what they preach

1 min read

In the 30th anniversary year for the Harvard Health Letter, the editors decided to revive a tradition and ask Harvard doctors whether they follow their own advice – two similar surveys were conducted in 1982 and 1992. Results from the 2,115 faculty members (1,185 male and 930 female) who responded were reported in the October 2005 issue. Highlights include alternative medicine use, diet, exercise, vitamin use, body weight, smoking, and more.
