ON-CAMPUS HEALTH SCREENINGS
What is it?
All health screenings are provided by professional staff from Wellness Corporate Solutions. Each appointment lasts approximately 15 minutes and includes a consultation to explain your results. Comprehensive screenings include cholesterol (total & HDL); glucose (blood sugar); blood pressure, body mass index (ratio of height to weight), and body composition (percentage of body fat) and are offered at a variety of locations throughout campus, several times a year.
Cholesterol and glucose are measured with a single finger prick (non-fasting). All other screenings are non-invasive. Specialty screenings, such as bone density or vision screenings, will be offered at the on the same day as the biometric screening: May 20, 9am - 3pm, MGC 245.
Appointments are highly recommended. For the May screenings, appointments may be booked online or by calling 877-469-5411.

Keep track of your numbers from year to year
Take the online Personal Wellness Profile after your screening. Update the values in your PWP every time you're screened or visit your doctor.
Or, take the PWP before your screening and bring your wellness scorecard and personal report with you to your appointment so you may discuss the results with a health educator.
ONLINE PERSONAL WELLNESS PROFILE - Available May 2014
The Personal Wellness Profile is only available to Full-Time AU Faculty and Staff members at this time.
What is it?
The online Personal Wellness Profile is a questionnaire used to assess overall health and well-being. The assessment takes about 20 minutes to complete and asks questions on topics such as physical activity, nutrition, vehicle safety, stress, sleep, alcohol use, and men's/women's health. Upon completion, you'll receive a wellness scorecard and personal report that includes information and action steps for optimizing your health. The purpose of this tool is to better understand your health status and identify areas for improvement to stay well.
What you'll need
For the most accurate report, we recommend that you have your screening values (cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, and body mass index) handy from a Know Your Numbers Assessment and Screening Event or from your last annual physical. If you don't have this information, you can either complete the assessment without them, or even enter the screening values at a later date. You'll always have access to the tool and your personal report.
