Know your numbers; extend your life.
Participate In a biometric screening or see your physician.
A few simple numbers can determine a lot about your health and well-being. To make positive lifestyle changes, you need to know where to start. During your screening, a health professional will collect measurements, including height, weight, blood pressure and waist circumference. A sample of your blood will be collected to determine your cholesterol and glucose levels, triglycerides and other factors that can lead to lifestyle-related health complications. The biometric screening does not test for illicit drugs, HIV/AIDS, or hepatitis. The results are not shared with your employer.
WBA + Biometric Screening = 240 well-being incentive credits
