Augsburg Total Wellness: Biometrics Health Screen

submitted by

Dear Augsburg Faculty and Staff,

Did you know that many Americans have significant health risks that they are not aware of? This includes:

-In 2014, 29.1 million people had diabetes or 9.3% of the U.S. population (almost 1/3 of them don’t know they have it)
-One out of three U.S. adults – 34% has high blood pressure.
-More than one-third of adults and almost 17% of youth were obese in 2014.
-About 1 or every 6 adult Americans has high blood cholesterol.

Could you have an undiagnosed health risk? Knowing your health risks is the first step in taking charge of your health.

That’s why Augsburg Total Wellness will be continuing to offer free, confidential health and wellness screenings this January! The biometrics health screening is completely voluntary. But we hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to learn more so that you can improve your health – starting now.

Screenings will include a brief health questionnaire and the following simple tests:

-Height, Weight
-Glucose(blood sugar)
-Blood Pressure
-Body Mass Index (BMI)
