(OPEN):
WHEN ASKED ABOUT HEALTH, MINNESOTANS' RESPONSES VARY A LOT--IN LARGE PART, DUE TO THE GENERATION THAT THEY WERE BORN INTO.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO NEW POLL-RESULTS FROM THE "CENTER FOR PREVENTION", AT "BLUE CROSS AND BLUE SHIELD OF MINNESOTA".  THE COMPANY'S JANELLE WALDOCK EXPLAINS...

(WALDOCK):
"
JUST OVER HALF OF ALL RESPONDENTS BELIEVE THAT THEY CARE MORE ABOUT THEIR OWN HEALTH THAN THEIR PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS DID.  WHEN YOU BREAK THIS DOWN BY GENERATION, HOWEVER, THERE ARE CLEAR DISTINCTIONS:  TWO-THIRDS OF 'BABY BOOMERS' BELIEVE THIS--COMPARED TO LESS THAN ONE-THIRD OF 13- TO 17-YEAR-OLDS, OR 'GENERATION Z'.  INTERESTINGLY, THOUGH, YOUNGER MINNESOTANS WERE MORE LIKELY TO SUPPORT PUBLICLY FUNDED PREVENTION-PROGRAMS, TO ADDRESS DIABETES, HIGH BLOOD-PRESSURE, HEART-DISEASE, AND CANCER.  ALL AGE-GROUPS WERE SUPPORTIVE OF PUBLIC INVESTMENTS IN SCHOOL HEALTH- AND WELLNESS-INITIATIVES; THIS IS PROMISING, AS LEARNING ABOUT HEALTH AND WELLNESS, AT AN EARLIER AGE, COULD RESULT IN A NARROWING OF THE 'HEALTH GAP'."
