Health assessment available online

October 7, 2010

To be ready for the health assessment, employees can complete a wellness screening on campus or with their health care provider. The following values are needed: blood pressure, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, height, weight and waist circumference. Participants can answer "I'm not sure" for unknown values, but entering all the numbers will provide the best results. The assessment can be updated later with new information.

To complete the health assessment, go to Participants will first need to register by following these steps:
