The Journey Through Health educational display was developed using the Health Belief Model and provided information on how the Dietary Guidelines Consumer Brochure messages can positively influence nutrition and physical activity choices to prevent or delay age-related changes throughout the body. The display consisted of 12 posters, educational scripts, and handouts. Evaluation of the display with 142 older adults revealed the display was positively received. The evaluation also showed increased awareness of age-related changes and associated health risks, knowledge of the benefits of nutrition and physical activity in health promotion, and self-efficacy towards following the Dietary Guidelines Consumer Brochure messages.
