Wellness Challenges

Each Challenge is Worth 4 Credits for the HealthQuest Rewards Program

Challenges are designed to give eligible members the opportunity to practice healthy behaviors. Challenges focus on key behaviors such as physical activity, nutrition, weight management and stress management that help to lower health risks. Research shows these behaviors enhance the health and quality of life for individuals that include them in their daily lifestyle.
