Get Involved with Health Research in Milwaukee

Survey of the Health of Wisconsin (SHOW) will be working in Milwaukee this April. SHOW is an ongoing statewide public health research project that is designed to measure the health of Wisconsin residents. The information that is collected will be used as a resource to improve the health of Wisconsin families.

SHOW visits 1,000 households around the state each year to learn about the health of residents. 36 local households in Milwaukee have been invited to participate, and SHOW will begin recruitment on April 8, 2013. The information that SHOW collects will be made available as a public-use databank for researchers, policy makers, health officials and other stakeholders to identify and address the public health needs of state residents.

SHOW is modeled after the CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which has provided key health information about the nation’s health for over 50 years, and is specially designed for the Wisconsin population. To learn more about the effort, visit www.show.wisc.edu.
