A biometric screening is an easy method of assessing your risk for potential health conditions by measuring:

  • Height, weight, waist circumference and body mass index (BMI)
  • Blood pressure and heart rate
  • Total lipid panel, including total cholesterol, high density lipoproteins (HDL), non HDL, low density lipoproteins (LDL) and triglycerides
  • Blood glucose

The screening is done by a registered nurse with the employee wellness program. At your scheduled appointment, the nurse will perform a finger stick to obtain a small sample of blood which is analyzed using on-site technology. The results are available within minutes. Your nurse will review your results with you and provide recommendations on how to improve your health and wellness.

How You Benefit

Knowing your biometric numbers can help determine a lot about your health and well-being. Once you’ve completed the screening, you’ll get an explanation of what your numbers mean and the healthy target ranges. This can help you create informed personal health goals and better understand your health needs.

Eligibility: For regular full-time and part-time faculty and staff and spouses or domestic partners enrolled in a University Health Care Plan, or non-Medicare-eligible retirees and spouses or domestic partners, enrolled in a University Health Care Plan, there is no out-of-pocket expense for a screening.

Before Your Biometric Screening

While fasting prior to your screening is not required, the most accurate biometric screening results can be obtained if you fast (nothing to eat or drink, except water, for 8 hours) prior to your screening. If you prefer to obtain fasting results, please schedule your appointment at a time that would allow you to fast for at least 8 hours but no longer than 12 hours.
