The purpose of this study was to explore communication patterns about health behaviors and lifestyles between Korean mothers and daughters living in the United States. Demographic and general health information was also collected. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with nine Korean mother and daughter dyads. Korean mothers talked with their daughters about healthy diets and exercise but relied on daughters'schools to provide much of their daughters'health education information related to growth and developmental changes and women's health issues such as screening and HIV prevention practice. Intervention models to enhance mother I daughter health communication and to improve mothers' self care need to be investigated.
