Walk With Ease
This project is a collaborative partnership with CHPcommunity to facilitate the effective dissemination and evaluation of an evidence-based program called Walk With Ease. The virtual (online) version of the 6 week program is available state-wide. An in-person version of the group program is available locally in Story County in collaboration with Ames Park and Recreation and Mary Greeley Medical Center with locations at the Ames Community Center and the Lifetime Fitness Center in Story City. For more information on the Walk with Ease program and ongoing research efforts, visit walkwitheaseISU.org.
The project aims to help develop training capacity to both broaden dissemination efforts, as well as evaluate and support improved participant outcomes. The other major goal is to understand what factors act as barriers or facilitators to successful large-scale program implementation.
