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. Click here for additional information about how to enroll your company.
Health Coaching Opportunities
The Wellness Works team has been managing an ongoing participatory project called the Health Coach Study that provides opportunities for individuals (and employees at partner companies) to receive health coaching by trained ISU students. Click here for information on past projects.
The team recently completed a new study called the Fitbit Study that provided individuals with the opportunity to wear a Fitbit for 3 months as part of a behavior change program. Participants were trained by the coaches to set their own goals and monitored their progress in becoming more physically active!

Clinical Health Coaching
The Wellness Works team has partnered with McFarland Clinic on a project aimed at evaluating new ways to provide adults with information and support needed to adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles.
The study is only open to individuals that have been directly referred to the project by their physician. If you are eligible to participate, the study will involve wearing a physical activity device to evaluate physical activity patterns. The monitor is comfortable and easy to wear, and is about the size of a watch. Information from this monitor will help a member of the research team evaluate your lifestyle patterns and guide coaching on behaviors. See our Health Coach Team below.
