Healthy People, Healthy Departments.

About Department Health Screenings

Invite the Life & Work Connections health screening team to your department as often as on an annual basis.  A health screening can be a part of a department healthy initiative or be a staff appreciation opportunity.  The health screening is free for benefits-eligible UA employees; we cannot accommodate student or grad student workers.  Department health screenings are scheduled on Wednesdays.  Set-up requirement is one conference room.  Twelve participants are needed to book a health screening and the half-day schedule (8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.) can accommodate as many as 20 people.  The screening process takes 15 minutes per participant and they receive a copy of their results and a brief review with a trained health professional. 
 

Department Health Screeings Include:

  • Blood Pressure/Pulse
  • Total Cholesterol*
  • HDL ("good cholesterol")*
  • Body composition (weight, body mass index, waist measurement and % body fat)
  • A1c Diabetes test (measures long-term blood sugar)* - available for $10 fee
  • Brief discussion with a trained health professional and referral information for confidential follow-up consultation.

Cholesterol and Hemoglobin A1c testing are done with a finger stick - no fasting required.
