Brief Summary:
This study evaluates the feasibility and the potential positive health impacts of a novel "health education theater," which will task participants of a health education program to create an original 10-minute theater that is required to use the health guidelines about physical activity and diet/nutrition. The outcomes include the changes in (a) knowledge about these guidelines, (b) compliance to these guidelines, (c) health related quality of life, and (d) self-perception well-being measures such as self-esteem and self-efficacy.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Health education
This arm's subjects are tasked to create an original 10-minute theater that is required to use the guidelines about physical activity and diet/nutrition.
Behavioral: Health education
All subjects are tasked to create an original 10-minute theater about physical activity and diet/nutrition.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in knowledge about the health guidelines regarding physical activity [ Time Frame: baseline, immediately post-intervention, 6 months post-intervention, 12-months post-intervention ]
    Knowledge about the guidelines regarding physical activity assessed via survey questionnaire. This outcome is dichotomous, either 0 or 1, representing a survey respondent's knowledge about the guideline is incorrect or correct, respectively. This guideline is set by the UC Davis Health Education and Promotion (HEP) (https://shcs.ucdavis.edu/wellness/physical-activity).

  2. Change in knowledge about the health guidelines regarding diet/nutrition [ Time Frame: baseline, immediately post-intervention, 6 months post-intervention, 12-months post-intervention ]
    Knowledge about the guidelines regarding diet/nutrition assessed via survey questionnaire. This outcome is dichotomous, either 0 or 1, representing a survey respondent's knowledge about the guideline is incorrect or correct, respectively. This guideline is set by the UC Davis Health Education and Promotion (HEP) (https://shcs.ucdavis.edu/fruits-andveggies).

  3. Change in compliance about the health guidelines regarding physical activity [ Time Frame: baseline, immediately post-intervention, 6 months post-intervention, 12-months post-intervention ]
    Compliance about the guidelines regarding physical activity assessed via survey questionnaire. This outcome is dichotomous, either 0 or 1, representing a survey respondent is non-compliant or compliant to the guideline, respectively. This guideline is set by the UC Davis Health Education and Promotion (HEP) (https://shcs.ucdavis.edu/wellness/physical-activity).

  4. Change in compliance about the health guidelines regarding diet/nutrition [ Time Frame: baseline, immediately post-intervention, 6 months post-intervention, 12-months post-intervention ]
    Compliance about the guidelines regarding diet/nutrition assessed via survey questionnaire. This outcome is dichotomous, either 0 or 1, representing a survey respondent is non-compliant or compliant to the guideline, respectively. This guideline is set by the UC Davis Health Education and Promotion (HEP) (https://shcs.ucdavis.edu/fruits-andveggies).

  5. Change in health related quality of life [ Time Frame: baseline, immediately post-intervention, 6 months postintervention, 12-months post-intervention ]
    Health related quality of life will be measured with the unit of utility (ranging from 0 to 100), which will be derived with the established method of visual analogue scale following EuroQol Group (Health Policy. 1990;16(3):199-208).

  6. Change in self-esteem [ Time Frame: baseline, immediately post-intervention, 6 months postintervention, 12-months post-intervention ]
    Self-esteem will be measured by the established method of "the Rosenberg's self-esteem scale," ranging from 10 to 40 (Rosenberg M. Society and the Adolescent Self-Image. Princeton, NJ, Princeton University Press, 1965).

  7. Change in self-efficacy [ Time Frame: baseline, immediately post-intervention, 6 months postintervention, 12-months post-intervention ]
    Self-efficacy will be measured by the established method of "the Generalized self-efficacy scale," ranging from 10 to 40 (Schwarzer, R., & Jerusalem, M. (1995). Generalized Self-Efficacy scale. In J. Weinman, S. Wright, &M. Johnston, Measures in health psychology: A user's portfolio. Causal and control beliefs (pp. 35-37). Windsor, England: NFER-NELSON.).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Economic efficiency of the intervention [ Time Frame: 60 years after the end of the intervention based on a simulation analysis ]
    Return on investment (ROI) of the intervention based on a simulation analysis
