Service Learning Partnerships
The Wellness Works team provides local companies with supplemental assistance in wellness programming through service learning collaborations through the KIN 380 course (Worksite Health Promotion).
Students will be continuing to offer free blood pressure and body composition screens at various worksites. The primary target is ISU faculty and staff and screening days have already been set for Nov 18th and 19th (8-4 at the ISU Memorial Union). All faculty and staff are eligible to come by for a free screening evaluation.
There are opportunities to conduct similar screening initiatives at other area worksites. If you are interested in having students contribute to your companies programming please contact Dr. Greg Welk at firstname.lastname@example.org
Interactive Health Partner
The Interactive Health Partner (IHP) software provides users with a powerful and personalized exercise and health tracking system. The IHP is currently being piloted through several area worksites. Visit the Health Tracking Page to find out more about the tool and project and how to sign your company up for the project.

Health Coaching and the 'Fitbit Study'
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.
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!
