You do not have to be covered by one of the university health plans in order to take advantage of this offer. In preparation for the health screening, participants must fast for 8-10 hours before their on-site screening. Please note that the blood draw is via a simple finger stick.

All employees who complete the personal health risk assessment and screening will receive raffle tickets to enter into various gift offerings of their choice. This also will allow you to receive wellness points toward your Tier One requirements for your first $150 wellness reward for 2017!  Scheduling your appointment and completing the online health risk assessment may all be completed at Be Well's secure website at
