The path to good health includes screenings that help prevent disease through early detection. Conveniently offered on Tucson and Phoenix campuses, these screenings provide important information about your current health and a starting point for discussion with your primarily care provider.
Annual Mini-Health Screening
This 20-minute general screening is available to benefits-eligible employees at no cost once per year and is conveniently located on the University's Tucson campus.
About The Screening
- A fasting blood test, including blood sugar test and full cholesterol and lipid panels.
- A hemoglobin A1C test.
- Height, weight, and waist circumference measurements.
- Blood pressure measurement.
- Osteoporosis and bone density screenings*. (Recommended for people age 40 and older, and for those under 40 who are menopausal.)

You'll receive your results within 10 days of your appointment and are kept completely confidential. Request additional copies on the consent form on the day of your screening.
*The bone density screening uses an advanced ultrasonometer to measure the density of the bone in your heel. The one-minute test uses no radiation or X-rays.
ADOA hosts other clinics for state employees in Tucson and other locations around Arizona.
