Bruhn's (1988) framework of life-style and health behavior was used to guide this study. According to Bruhn, multiple factors influence the development of life-style and health behaviors that ultimately impact health related quality of life. The convenience sample included 200 adults who were 18 to 66 years of age (M = 38.33, S.D. = 12.77). Data were collected prior to a health care visit and via a phone call at three months.
