Why know your numbers? 

Knowing your numbers is one of the best ways to evaluate your health by identifying your risk and providing motivation for managing your health. Even if you feel great and look healthy, you may not know what's going on inside. Many diseases are "silent" and affect your health long before you feel anything wrong.

Know Your Numbers is a voluntary, fasting health screening including total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides, glucose, blood pressure, weight, and waist circumference. Receive your confidential results (seen only by Be Well at Work - Program staff) and resources for follow-up immediately. Plan for 20-30 minutes to complete the screening.
