- Schedule a biometric screening
We periodically offer on-campus, voluntary biometric screenings to faculty and staff at no cost so that you can know more about your physical health as you plan your wellness goals. The screening measures cholesterol levels, blood pressure and blood glucose levels and usually includes a measurement of height, weight and body mass index. Entering this information into PureWellness will provide you with a clearer view of your health status.
- Work with a wellness coach
When you complete your health assessment, you'll automatically opt in to have a wellness coach. This staff member from Evangelical Community Hospital will help you set attainable wellness goals and help you develop a plan to succeed -- at no cost to you. You have control over whether any of your personally identifiable information will be shared with a wellness coach. || Learn more
