Spring into Summer

Celebrate good health this season with Health Plus' Spring into Summer weight maintenance program.

How it Works:
Do an initial weigh-in at the beginning of June (1st-11th). Participants will receive weekly resources to promote good health this summer! After 4 weeks, submit a final weigh-in July (12th-23rd).

Earn Rewards:
Maintain your weight (gain no more than 2 pounds) to be entered into a prize drawing. Ten Grand Prize winners will be chosen from those who meet the program goal. All participants will receive a Health Plus participation prize, even if they do not meet the goal!

Prize Drawing:
Those who meet the challenge goal will be entered into a prize drawing. 10 winners will receive a $50 eGift Card to Amazon!

How to Submit Your Weigh-ins:

Self Report. If you have access to a scale, you can securely submit your weight with Redcap.

In-Person. Attend a Know Your numbers event to weigh in.

Weigh with Higi. Use a weight measurement taken at any Higi station (on or off campus) to weigh in. Just follow these 3 steps:

  1. Log in to the Health & Wellness Information Portal to connect your Higi account.
    • Click on "Connect to Higi"
    • Follow instructions to allow Higi to send Health Plus your weight and blood pressure. If you are a new Higi user, you will need to create a Higi account.
  2. Weigh in at a Higi station between June 1-12 and again between July 13-23. Higi stations on campus are located inside Courtyard Café and Sarratt Student Center.
