Distributioninc-50The Outreach Program is dedicated to sharing the latest research finding and the experiences of  employers in the Midwest, particularly those with fewer than 250 employees, that have successfully implemented health, safety, and well-being programs for their employees.

We encourage the adoption of evidence-based practices that result in healthier employees (and their families), fewer injuries, less absenteeism and underperformance, reduced employee turnover, and better return on investment. We also study ways to speed the dissemination and translation of these successful programs and practices to other small and mid-sized workplaces across all sectors.

Our team includes staff located in Iowa, Nebraska and Missouri.

Current Activities

Outreach activities include in person and web-based conference and workshop presentations.  We also produce and evaluate materials to help small businesses develop or improve their safety and health programs. View our free video series:
