The SHOW has returned again to the city as researchers continue a statewide effort to measure residents' health.
SHOW, an acronym for the Survey of the Health of Wisconsin, will be in local neighborhoods the weeks of Sept. 26, Oct. 10 and Oct. 24, randomly selecting about 36 homes.
Each participant will be asked to fill out a survey and answer questions verbally on health topics, schedule an appointment at a survey center to have a few physical measurements taken, and talk on the phone about once a year to discuss any health changes.
SHOW, which also visited West Allis in February, does not provide any information about participants, according to survey officials. It only shares data summaries from the information gathered.
The study is conducted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison's School of Medicine and Public Health. For information, visit the website at www.wisc.edu or call (888) 433-7649.
