As part of our 8ight Ways to Wellness, we encourage employees to get an annual health screening, which is key in detecting disease early. Knowing your A1c level (blood test to measure diabetes risk), current blood pressure, cholesterol and other key indicators can empower you to make smart decisions about your health.
Upcoming on-campus screening events
The next onsite screening event will be Danforth University Center on January 28, 2020 from 9am-1pm. Walk-in appointments will be available. All onsite screening events are eligible for one $50 Visa gift card per calendar year.
As a benefits-eligible employee, you will also earn ONE $50 Visa Gift Card reward after you complete your annual screening per calendar year.
On-Campus Screening Events
Screening Tests include:
Total Cholesterol, HDL, TC/HDL ratio, Glucose, A1c (finger-stick testing only)
Height, Weight, Waist Circumference, BMI, Blood Pressure
All tests are offered for FREE for benefits-eligible employees. Only you will receive your personal results, which you will review onsite. A1c tests are processed at LabCorp and results will be mailed to your home within 10-14 business days. Learn more in FAQs
Visit Your Primary Care Provider
Your primary care provider is a critical member of your personal wellness team. They monitor your overall health and help you make progress toward your goals. Talk with your provider about what health screenings are appropriate for you and when you should have them. You and your physician should also discuss the best approach to helping you make important changes to your lifestyle.
