Health Coach Study
The Spring 2014 Health Coach Study is underway. A cohort of participants has been enrolled. If you are a registered participant, you can click on the button below to access your Sensewear ProConnect account.
What is the 'Health Coach' Study?
The HealthCoach study is a 9 week guided behavior change program that is guided 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 has been completed for the Spring 2014 semester but we will be enrolling a new cohort for the Fall.
Participants in the study are provided with a Sensewear monitor to use for 8 weeks and be guided on how to use the monitor to help with physical activity, diet, or weight control efforts.
Participants would be able to use the monitor on their own or enroll in in person or online health coaching programming to assist in lifestyle change.
