Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1978 
45 p. 
Summary

Interviews were conducted with 237 adult blacks in the Boston area to determine their most urgent needs and the most urgent needs of blacks in general, to characterize the information flow from health services agencies, and to characterize access to and utilization of health services. The respondents ranked better economic conditions, family and religious concerns, equality before the law, and political power as the four most pressing needs for themselves individually and for the black community as a whole. Most respondents characterized the flow of information from health services agencies as good although more specific questions about information contradict this finding. Furthermore, respondents described access to health services as adequate to good, although most had never utilized a community health facility. Implications of the research and recommendations are discussed. (MK)
