Student Project Opportunity
WellSuite® IV is an evidence-based health risk assessment (HRA), developed by Wellsource®, and is used to assess an individual’s level of wellness. The aim of this study is to assess the validity of WellSuite® IV using validated instruments and determine the reliability of WellSuite® IV using a test-retest method. Wellsource is looking for a student—on a volunteer basis—to lead this project in collaboration with Wellsource’s Director of Health and Research. Activities will include developing the methods, submitting for IRB review and approval, recruiting participants, collecting participant information and HRAs, analyzing data using appropriate statistical methods, and drafting a manuscript for submission to a peer-reviewed journal article. The final deliverable for this project is a peer-reviewed journal article with the student as the lead author.
