Achieving and maintaining an optimal level of wellness promotes health related quality of life. According to Health People 2010, there are more than 40 million individuals in the US who do not have health insurance. Adults who are underserved often exhibit a life-style that lacks wellness behaviors necessary for an improved quality of life. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationships among life-style, health behaviors, and health related quality of life for underserved adults at a nurse managed center. 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. A convenience sample of 100 men and woman were recruited from an underserved health center. Data is being collected at three different times over a one year period. Instruments for data collection include: (a) an investigator developed questionnaire to measure current life-style and health behaviors and (b) the SF-12 Health Survey to measure health related quality of life. Data will be analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings will be used to meet the needs of an underserved population, promote healthy life-styles, and improve overall health related quality of life. AN: MN030363
