This study examined the efficacy of a coronary artery risk evaluation program conducted at a military installation. Based on the Precede Model of Health Education, the study tested the theoretical relationship between health education and health outcomes Green, Kreuter, Deeds, Partridge, 1980. Health education involved the screening and evaluation of 195 men and women for cardiovascular disease risk and an educational program, designed to facilitate positive lifestyle changes. Health outcomes were measured as serum lipid levels and cardiovascular risk levels low, moderate, or high risk. These outcomes were measured pre- and six months post-participation in the program. Findings indicate significant improvements in serum lipid values.
