Annual Health Screenings

Get recommended health screenings and immunizations.

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.

All WashU benefit eligible employees can participate in the biometric screening program. To confirm your employment status, please contact the WashU Benefit Service Center at 314-935-2332 or email at hr-benefitsmail@wustl.edu.

Take Action with Screening Options

Breast Cancer Screening

Early detection is the best tool in the fight against breast cancer.  The Siteman Cancer Center offers annual screenings for women age 40 and over who have no signs or symptoms of breast cancer.  Mammograms are offered on the Mammogram Van or at one of three Siteman locations: Joanne Knight Breast Health Center at the Center for Advanced Medicine-WUSM, Highlands Medical Building, and Center for Advanced Medicine in South County. 

More information on the Siteman Mammogram Van.

Well Woman Exam

At the center of your care is the annual well woman exam, an essential part of your preventive care.  Your physician will conduct a breast exam, pelvic exam, and Pap smear, discuss your overall health, and evaluate the need for additional screenings, such as for breast cancer, colon cancer, or osteoporosis. 

More information on WashU Gynecology, their locations, and more. 

Colonoscopy

Guidelines recommend that all people start screening for colon cancer at age 50.  You are recommended to get screened for colon cancer even if you do not have a family history of cancer and have not had any symptoms.  Colonoscopy is recommended at least once every 10 years, and more frequently if you have had colon polyps or a family history of colon cancer. 

Doctors at the Washington University Colon Screening Program are highly skilled at performing colonoscopy.  Colonoscopies are currently being performed at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, BJH West County and South County.  Please call 314-362-5952 to schedule your colonoscopy.  Learn More.

Lung Cancer Screening

Lung cancer often doesn’t cause symptoms, which makes regular screenings vitally important.  It also increases the likelihood of catching lung cancer in its earlier and more treatable stages.  Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States; deaths that could potentially be prevented by early detection through lung cancer screening. 

Siteman Cancer Center is resuming low-dose CT lung cancer screenings at all locations.  Call 314-747-3046 to schedule your lung screening.  Contact your doctor first for a referral. Learn more.
