Wellness Works is an outreach program coordinated by the Physical Activity and Health Promotion Lab in the Department of Kinesiology at Iowa State University. Programming is led by students working through internships, independent studies, or class-based service learning programming coordinated through an upper division Kinesiology course (HS 380 - Worksite Health Promotion). The sections below provide some highlights about current programming. Click here to learn more about our team and our approach.
Walk with Ease in the Worksite
The Wellness Works Team has been working to support area worksites and has developed a flexible physical activity incentive program that could be effectively implemented in collaboration with current wellness programs or in addition to other initiatives. The program builds on an evidence-based walking program called ‘Walk With Ease’ developed by the Arthritis Foundation that is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to increase physical activity and help improve overall health.

Worksite Wellness Support (BSDI)
Our Wellness Works team has established a collaborative education/research partnership with BSDI (www.BSDIweb.com) that enables us to provide employees at local companies with access to the powerful BSDI worksite wellness programming tool along with the Motivation Alliance suite of programs. The software enables employees within a participating company to set up and monitor health data and track efforts to change lifestyle behaviors.
