Promoting Health-Related Consumer Research: Arc Model Application to Cdc’S Health Campaign

Despite the growing realization that health communication strategies need to be improved, possibly by tailoring them to audience segments, there is no model that guides the design of health communications. To address this need, we develop a model that examines the effects of message tactics and individual differences on health intentions. The model can be used to select message formats for a general audience or for influencing target audiences that vary in age, race, gender, regulatory focus, and involvement. The predictive ability of the model is examined for CDC’s national exercise campaign.
