'Health Coach' Study
The HealthCoach study is a guided behavior change program that is led by trained ISU student health coaches. If you are a healthy adult (18 and over) interested in being more active, eating better or losing weight you may be eligible to participate in this free program. Enrollment is now open for the Fall cohort. Click here to go to registration page.
Participants in the study are provided with a Sensewear monitor to use for 8 weeks and are guided on how to use the monitor to help with physical activity, diet, or weight control efforts.
Participants set their own goals and can choose to use the monitor on their own or choose to receive personalized health coaching to assist in lifestyle changes.
