Healthy Behaviors Incentive Program Evaluation
Natoshia Askelson (UI College of Public Health - Community & Behavioral Health)
The objective of this study is to help assess parts of the Iowa Health and Wellness Plan: the Healthy Behaviors Incentive Plan and Dental Wellness Plan. One method for evaluating these Healthy Behaviors Programs (HBIs) has been to contact individuals who have participated in the program (or are eligible to participate) and ask them questions about their understanding of that program, the enrollment process, their opinions of its effectiveness and other questions. The Iowa Social Science Research Center (ISRC) will be involved in this 2019 telephone data collection effort, as it has been in past studies on this topic.

Farm Safety Study
Dr. Marizen Ramirez
The Farm Safety project underway in the state of Iowa in 2019 has been commissioned by the Great Plains Center for Agricultural Health. Through this study, University of Iowa is seeking to understand what characteristics of a farm make it more safe or less safe for its employees. The University of Iowa Social Science Research Center (ISRC) will be placing telephone calls to row crop farm owners/operators in pre-determined areas across the state to ask if they are interested and willing to schedule a farm visit.
