The Survey of the Health of Wisconsin (SHOW) can support innovative health sciences and precision medicine research, applied public health and community-based research and encourages translational research from bench to communities. SHOW has provided research infrastructure and other services for more than 30 studies since its inception in 2008. Explore studies currently supported by SHOW.

vizHOME: A context-based health information needs assessment strategy

The vizHOME project is funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to systematically determine how household context shapes personal health information management.

Community-Based Continence Promotion: SHOW Me the Reach

More than half of older women have bladder or bowel incontinence, resulting in a significant negative impact on women’s quality of life, loss of independence and related costs. This study aims extend the reach of a community-based continence promotion program.

The EPIC Study: Examining the Potential of the Microbiome in Children to Reduce Antibiotic Resistance

The goal of this study is to assess the relationship between the nasal, skin, and gut microbiomes and MDRO colonization in children attending daycare in Wisconsin.

Milwaukee Angler Project

This study measures chemical levels among people who eat fish from Milwaukee-area waters with the hope of better protecting people from chemical exposures.

Lead, the Human Gut Microbiome and Multi-Drug Resistant Organism Colonization

The overarching goal of this research is to gain further insight into the relationships between sources of environmental lead exposure, chronic lead exposure and the gut microbiota, and how lead exposure is associated with colonization of multi-drug resistant organisms.

Cumulative Risks, Early Development and Emerging Academic Trajectories (CREATE)

The purpose of this project is to look at how children develop in their environments.

The WARRIOR Study:Winning the War on Antibiotic Resistance in Wisconsin

This project examines the relationship between fiber-rich food intake and gut microbiota, the prevalence of intestinal colonization by MDROs, and the relationship of fiber intake with MDRO colonization.

Carbon Monoxide Monitoring Project

Together with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, this project will gather information about carbon monoxide detection and awareness among Wisconsin residents using the SHOW sample.

Physical Activity Needs and Interests among Rural Wisconsin Women

This study is designed to learn about the factors that help and hinder rural women from leading an active lifestyle, and to assess their interests in different types of physical activity promotion programs.
