You may have heard about Biometric screenings and Know Your Numbers Campaigns. These are clinical assessments of key health numbers which can be an important part of a health and wellness program.

Knowledge is power and knowing your numbers helps one be proactive with health and disease risks.

Biometric Screenings may include-

  1. Height and Weight and Body Mass Index
  2. Waist circumference
  3. Blood pressure
  4. Blood glucose (sugar)
  5. Cholesterol

We are very fortunate that on May 1st for our second NCPS Be Well Expo, Cigna will provide a Biometric Screening van for free screenings !

Be Well!
