The Health Screenings have concluded for the current Open Enrollment season. We'll see you next year!
During Open Enrollment, free biometric screenings are available to Faculty and Staff to help you to understand the state of your health. You can keep track of your yearly numbers and learn how to take the necessary steps to make improvements. The screenings include:
- Body composition: Height, weight, body mass index, body fat percentage, and waist circumference
- Blood pressure
- A blood sample to test cholesterol, triglycerides and glucose (sugar) levels
After your health screening, you will receive a personal copy of the results and a health education booklet with easy-to-understand explanations for each test.
For accurate screening results, fasting is recommended but NOT required. If you eat, you may still get screened.
ColumbiaDoctors and other benefits providers set up stations at locations across the campuses to conduct biometric screenings to help faculty and staff take control of their health.
