On-site biometric screenings
Biometric screenings are an important part of any successful company health and wellness program. Our Education and Wellness Team offers on-site biometric screenings for employer groups.
This assessment of key health measures can help employees identify health conditions or potential health risks.
A biometric screening can include:
- Lipid Profile (HDL, LDL, total cholesterol, triglycerides) — to determine cardiovascular disease risk
- Fasting glucose level and Hemoglobin A1C screening- to assess risk for diabetes/pre-diabetes
- Blood Pressure- to identify potential risks of hypertension
- Height, Weight, BMI, and Abdominal Circumference- to measure overweight, obesity and abdominal obesity risks
- Nicotine- to determine tobacco use
- Health coaching and education- to help employees understand their results and provide resources for health management
