ABSTRACT
The purpose of this initial investigation was to combine health and economic decision making approaches to predict the success of recruiting pre-diabetics to exercise. Through a conceptual integration process and in-depth interviews, health/economic models were integrated to predict exercise recruitment in a population of pre-diabetics. The effort provided a conceptual framework for combining decision making models from health and economic disciplines that can be used to predict recruitment to exercise inpre-diabetic populations. The empirical survey needs to be administered to a group of pre diabetics to evaluate the efficacy of the model.
