Abstract
Health professional recruitment and retention in northern and isolated areas is a continuing challenge. Surveys show that lifestyle and awareness of regional opportunities are important factors influencing those who choose to work in remote regions. This paper describes a satellite educational program of the School of Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy at McMaster University which brings part of each class of students to northwestern Ontario. Program rationale, basic educational structure, and a follow-up of the first graduating class are presented.

Abstract
The visual fatigue-affecting conditions of the classes of a higher educational institute were examined in students. The authors determined the light level of working places and its compliance with hygienic regulations of the factors influencing the students' visual perception. They analyzed and identified avoidable causes of variance of the light level and conjugate variables. Guidelines for optimizing the light level have been developed, by taking into account the lowest required tangible cost. A program of organizational actions, which aimed at following the sanitary-and-hygienic specifications at higher school, has been worked out.

Abstract
For over twenty years the University of Manitoba has been providing health services to northern communities. This arrangement has involved basically three parties: the government funding agency, the University, and communities. The development and evolution of these service arrangements are traced from their beginnings in the 1960s through to the current era of fiscal restraint, health reform, and transfer of program responsibilities to communities. Changes and consistencies in the positions of the parties are examined and potential options that might structure future relationships between them are explored. There are similar partnerships in other areas of Canada which have seen universities involved in delivering substantial levels of health services to northern communities. This paper documents one example which has operated for a generation.

Abstract
The paper presents the structure and trends of morbidity in the examined first-year students of the Belgorod State Engineering Academy of Building Materials in the course of the past 6 years. High morbidity rates were found in them. Every year healthy students decrease in number; students who have 2-5 diseases or more increase. The authors present the results of their own results of survey at the Department of Physical Education and Sports in two tables and a figure. Due to this health status of first-year students, they developed a health promotion programme for these students as "Formation of Health-Promoting Culture for First-Year Students" and the "Authors' Student Health Programme".
