"Know Your Numbers" Worksite Wellness Biometric Screening

Offered monthly to MUSC Care Team Members.

Register For Your Screening

The basic screening includes blood work, a health risk appraisal, height and weight measurements, blood pressure, and lipid panels. Results will be included in your personal health profile highlighting any values outside the normal range. You can even send this report to your physician or take a copy with you on your next doctor's office visit, which may save you money and keep you from duplicating tests. View a detailed description of the screening components.

There is a suggested 12-hour fast prior to your screening (you may have water and any required medications you may be taking). Participants are required to complete all components of this health screening. This includes height, weight, blood pressure, blood draw, and paperwork. Please bring your insurance card with you the day of the screening. Your insurance card ID number will be required when filling out paperwork.

Your appointment should last 15 to 30 minutes. You will receive the results via Doctors Care online patient portal within two to three days.
