Wellpower Spring Reward Period Runs February 4 – June 21, 2013

Wellpower’s focus this year is on exercise, nutrition, and stress reduction because improving our lifestyle habits in each of these areas can positively impact our overall health and wellness. Wellpower’s spring reward period officially begins February 4, however registration for the first challenge will begin January 28, 2013.

To be eligible for a reward during the spring reward period, participants must:

  1. Complete a health screening and Health Risk Questionnaire (HRQ) if these were not completed last fall
  2. Earn 3 credits in the Wellpower Program

Health Screening/Health Risk Questionnaire (HRQ)Nurse Taking Blood Pressure
If you completed both a health screening and the HRQ in the fall of 2012, you are already eligible to earn a reward in the spring. You will need to repeat the screening/HRQ process in the fall of 2013, not this spring.

However, if you last completed a health screening and the HRQ in the spring of 2012, you’re due to renew! That means you need to complete a screening and HRQ before June 21, 2013. The easiest way to do that is sign up for a free on-campus screening now. Wellpower is offering screenings between January 23 and February 1, 2013. Register today!

Wellpower also offers alternatives to the on-campus screening which allow you to get a screening through your own medical provider or through Dallas Diagnostics Association. You will need to have recent lab results or screening results on hand when you complete the HRQ, so complete your screening and then the HRQ.

Earning Credits in Wellpower
In addition to the screening/HRQ, participants will need to earn 3 credits in the Spring Reward period. Wellpower will offer three 6-week long structured challenges, the ability to create a personal challenge, the Weigh-In/Weigh-Out challenge, and the Naturally Slim class. Each is worth 1 credit.

Wellpower Orientation Sessions
Wellpower will host two orientation sessions, one live session as well as one online webinar to kick off the spring reward period. If you miss one of those sessions, there will be recorded webinars to help guide you and you can always get help from a Wellpower team member if needed. Want to get started now?
