Adding WellQuest™ to Your Program

WellQuest™ provides you with another resource that complements your program to keep participants retained in the program, mindful of key educational concepts, and engaged as part of a support network. Ultimately, these features are intended to help participants achieve their overall health and wellness goals toward reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, which, in turn, can help coaches and program coordinators achieve program and overall organizational goals.

Class Integration

WellQuest™ is designed to help National DPP lifestyle change program participants stay engaged in their program. We encourage integrating WellQuest™ into your classes about a month after the class starts. At that time, participants will have learned the basics of the class, nutrition, and physical activity.

We encourage you to introduce WellQuest™ during class with a demonstration of the game and instructions for participants. Provide your participants with the class code to connect to your course/organization.

Weekly Challenges

Players will have the opportunity to choose real-life weekly challenges based on the component of a healthy lifestyle they want to focus on. For example, a player may choose to work on fitness for the week and choose the challenge to go for a walk after dinner 3 times during the week. At the end of the week, players will report if they completed their challenge to receive additional rewards in the game.

Monitor Progress

WellQuest™ allows you to see your participants’ progress such as weekly challenges and activity. This can help you identify what a participant’s needs and focuses are that you can integrate into your classes.
