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 email@example.com

The Fitbit Study
The FitBit study is a behavior change program led by trained ISU students and faculty. If you are a healthy adult between the ages of 24-60 and you do not regularly exercise, you may be eligible to participate in this free program to help you become more physically active.
Participants in the study are provided with a Fitbit Charge activity monitor to use for 3 months and are guided in how to use the monitor and the associated software/app.
Participants set their own goals and can monitor their progress in becoming more physically active!
