The research instruments were composed of the health promotion program, a scale of health literacy with the reliability in a range of .67-.91, a recording form of health condition, a questionnaire of satisfaction with health promotion activities with the reliability of .79, a glucometer, a sphygmomanometer, a waistline tape, and


a weight scale with a height gauge. The implementation and data collection were conducted from November, 2016 to February, 2017. Statistics used for data analysis included frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and paired t-test.


The results revealed that 1) after the experiment, the samples had statistically significant higher mean scores of 8 aspects of health literacy than before the experiment (p < .001); 2) after the experiment, the samples had lower mean scores of all indicators of health condition—fasting blood sugar, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, waistline, and body mass index than before the experiment; and 3) after the experiment, the samples had an overall mean score of satisfaction with health promotion activities at a highest level (= 4.67, SD = .62).
