In this cross-sectional study, we evaluated health status of 1583 young men and women (19.2 ± 1.3 years) studying health education from 2012 to 2016 at the University of Novi Sad, and presented data on the frequency of common chronic diseases in this specific population. Total prevalence of hypertension was 3.4%, while 17.1% participants were overweight and diabetes affected 0.6% of health educators. Future health educators could be seen as positive health role models in public health campaigns since they suffer from chronic diseases less often comparing to general population, suggesting affirmative health profiles of this profession.
