Wits Wellness Research

Research opportunity for people 50 years and older starting in late Winter/early Spring 2022

University of Illinois is looking for participants for the Wits Wellness Research Study. Participants can receive up to $60 for their participation in the study. The study will include 12 weekly health and wellness sessions being held at various locations across the state. The sessions will be fun, with interactive discussions and pen and paper activities on topics such as healthy eating, managing stress, improving sleep, and more! You can participate in any of the following locations:

  • Champaign
  • Mattoon
  • Leyden Township
  • St. Joseph
  • Sterling
  • Westchester
  • Online (am & pm sessions)

Participants will be compensated up to $60 in gift cards for completing health-related surveys, attending the 60-minute workshop sessions, and providing us with your feedback. Spots are limited, but everyone who qualifies for the study will receive the program in either a Fall 2021 or Spring 2022 12-week workshop series. Findings from the study will be used to improve future program offerings from University of Illinois Extension.
