Seeger and Hanson were recognized for the Iowans Walking Assessment Logistics Kit (I-WALK), ā€œa perfect example of how Extension and Outreach helps Iowans understand and operationalize research from a land-grant university,ā€ the award citation said. ā€œUtilizing smartphone technology, geographic information systems and crowdsourcing to solve community problems takes everyday technology that community members can access and puts it into use to make informed decisions.ā€
