Abstract: We proposed a conceptual model to predict health information seeking behavior (HISB) from three different sources (family, Internet, doctors). To test the model, a structural equation modeling (SEM) analysis was conducted using data from the 2012 Annenberg National Health Communication Survey (ANHCS) (N = 3,285). Findings suggest higher social support from family predicts higher trust in health information from family members, which is positively related to health information seeking from all three sources with the path linking trust to family information seeking being the strongest. Effect of social support on information seeking from family is partially mediated by trust, while effect of social support on information seeking from the Internet/doctors is fully mediated by trust. Implications of the study are discussed.
