Clackamas, Ore. – Eat more fruits and vegetables. You've heard the advice before to improve your health. But how long will it take to see a change? Weeks? Months? Try eating a plant-based diet for just seven days and measure the results with a health risk assessment.
Wellsource, Inc., a leader in designing cloud-based population health tools, is excited to announce its collaboration with Engine 2 on the Engine 2 Seven-Day Rescue Challenge.
Better health for 10,000 participants
It’s a week-long program designed to promote optimal health through plant-strong nutrition. Together, Wellsource and Engine 2 aim to promote the power of personalized health transformation. Wellsource is providing online access to its WellSuite® IV Health Risk Assessment for up to 10,000 Challenge participants. The Challenge will run from April 24 through April 30.
“Wellsource and Engine 2 share the same mission,” says Wellsource Director of Health and Research Dr. Joe Raphael. “We aim to inspire healthy lifestyles that promote health and prevent disease, empowering people to enjoy the highest quality of life and well-being possible.”
The value of a health risk assessment
Engine 2 Seven-Day Rescue Challenge participants will securely access the Wellsource cloud-based WellSuite IV Health Risk Assessment via special log-in. After answering a short series of questions about their lifestyle habits, each participant will see their health scores and any risk factors for preventable diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.
“When you set a goal like improving your health, you need a way to measure it,” says Wellsource CEO Chris McReynolds. “Adding the WellSuite IV Health Risk Assessment to the Engine 2 Seven-Day Rescue Challenge is a great way to gauge the benefits of following a plant-based diet.”
Health risk assessment results in 15 minutes
The WellSuite IV Health Risk Assessment takes less than 15 minutes to complete and can be taken on a desktop PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. The question set has been developed on the basis of published research and helps show the connection between lifestyle habits, health status, and chronic disease risk. The questions adapt to an individual’s gender, age, and responses. Upon completion of the assessment, a personal summary is immediately generated. It shows the health status of the individual, highlights areas in which they are doing well, and provides recommendations in areas in which they can improve.
Challenge participants are being encouraged to complete the WellSuite IV Health Risk Assessment at the start of the Seven-Day Challenge and again at the end of the Challenge so they can gauge their pre- and post-Challenge results.
“Since launching our inaugural Seven-Day Rescue Challenge in January, more than 17,000 people have transformed their health and reduced their risk for chronic disease by committing to a plant-strong lifestyle,” says Engine 2 Program Director Laurie Kortowich. “By adding the WellSuite IV Health Risk Assessment for our April Challenge participants, now our users can do more than see the results; they can track and validate their numbers to truly recognize the profound impact on their well-being.”
