Abstract

We have been developing a health promotion program called the "e-health community" which consists of both online and off-line activities. The approach of this program is to develop a citizen centric health community for sustainable health promotion activities in local community. We have provided an online lifestyle record system with blogs and off-line physical activity and cooking classes. Our research showed that over 70% of the participants experienced difficulties in maintaining records of their daily diet, while participation in off-line classes motivates the recording activities. Social networking is an important motivation for attendance of the off-line activities as well as the knowledge acquisition.
