WELLNESS SCREENING PROGRAM, 2017

Stay healthy by getting your biometric wellness screening this October! Screenings will be offered at participating Harris County offices.

What is a screening?

  • Biometric screenings are a series of health tests, provided conveniently at the workplace, designed to offer insight into your health status.
  • A quick, relatively painless finger-stick blood draw allows for instant results and identification of risks that will help you take action to improve your health.

What is provided?

  • A small blood sample is collected (lipids and glucose) along with height, weight, BMI, blood pressure and waist and/or hip circumference. You are not required to be fasting.
  • A qualified screening professional will discuss your fingerstick results with you and give you a copy to share with your primary care physician.

Where can I go to receive a wellness screening?

  • Onsite events will be taking place across Harris County. Click here for the current schedule!
