Biometric Screening Tests

Attend a Biometric Health Screening—a few simple tests that will give you your:

  • Total Cholesterol*
  • HDL and LDL Cholesterol*
  • Blood Pressure
  • Blood Glucose*
  • Body Composition

*In order to complete the blood work portion of the screening, you must fast (not eat anything) for at least eight hours before your appointment. Water is permitted, but coffee, tea, or pop (soda) may interfere with the test and should be avoided.

Each screening session takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Testing is first-come, first-served within your group appointment time.

Please bring your UCard or your photo ID—an insurance card is not required.

Biometric Health Screenings are not a substitute for annual visits with your primary care provider.
