Biometric Screening

Biometric screenings take about 20 minutes and are conducted on-site by a registered nurse. Your nurse performs a finger stick to obtain a small sample of blood, which is analyzed using point-of-care technology.

Results are available within minutes and entered into your wellness portal. Your nurse will review and discuss your results with you privately, offering recommendations where appropriate.

Schedule my screening

  • Total cholesterol
  • LDL cholesterol
  • HDL and non-HDL cholesterol
  • Triglycerides
  • Blood glucose
  • Blood pressure
  • Heart rate
  • Height (self-reported)
  • Weight
  • Abdominal girth
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)

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.

We can come straight to your department, office or building if you have at least 10 people who would like to receive a screening.

Request a Clinic

If you prefer, you can use numbers obtained from your doctor in the current calendar year by asking them to fill out the provider lab value form. The form includes all the numbers you need to complete your PHA. Please note, lab values received from a doctor’s appointment may be subject to co-pays or other associated fees, and must be from the current calendar year.

Those eligible for biometric screenings and incentives include regular full-time and part-time faculty, staff, residents, fellows, and spouses or domestic partners enrolled in a University Health Care Plan, non-Medicare-eligible retirees and spouses or domestic partners enrolled in a University Health Care Plan, postdocs and spouses or domestic partners enrolled in a University-sponsored Health Care Plan. There is no out-of-pocket cost for a biometric screening.
