Abstract : Prediction of health change, particularly illness, may be improved through careful study of life changes in a person's recent experience. Samples of a medical center's resident physicians, sailors at sea, men undergoing stressful training, show that confidence in a method of approach is possible, and that reasonable relationships can be obtained.
