It is widely acknowledged that cardiovascular disease prevention requires intervention as early in the human lifespan as practical. A window of opportunity presents in early adulthood when students gain independence as young adults attending university. In a three-phase investigation, this study will evaluate the behavioral patterns of university students in the domains of diet, exercise, stress management, smoking and sleep phase 1. Informed with information from phase 1, a pilot study phase 2 will test the feasibility of performing an intervention in university students consisting of an 8-week period during which the students will receive three text messages by phone or iPad per week, tailored to address the behavioral issues that the student has identified as needing improvement and for which the student has indicated a desire to make change.
