KYN: Know Your Numbers

The OHR and the faculty and students of the Nursing Division are pleased to offer biometric screening to the Sisters, faculty and staff of the University. A biometric screening gives you an immediate snapshot of your overall health. Your health screening will provide you with basic health indicators, such as your BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol level and blood glucose level. These numbers can be used to determine your risk for conditions such as diabetes and heart attack. After your screening is complete, our nursing faculty and students will counsel you on your results. Biometric screenings are a source of invaluable information that can help you live a healthier life and prevent serious illnesses, while potentially saving you money in health care costs.

The screenings are staffed by our Nursing faculty and students, and each employee will be given a ‘health passport’ which includes the results of their biometric screening. The screening is at no cost to the employee and the results are not retained by the University or the Nursing Division.

The schedule is subject to change due to camps, games, practices, or other college events. The gym may not be available for use at times due to college events.
