What is a biometric screening?

Screenings—conducted for the university by Quest Diagnostics Inc.—include blood pressure, height, weight, waist circumference, cholesterol and glucose tests. Each fall, on-site screenings are available by appointment. Faculty and staff may also schedule off-site appointments at a Quest Patient Service Center or submit results via the Physician Response Form available on the Quest website if their primary care provider collected all screening results after April of that calendar year. See the Faculty & Staff Wellness FAQ page for more information.
