    Discuss over-the-counter and/or prescribed medications, medication and/or vitamin interactions, vaccinations, osteoporosis & heart problems, medication safety, pharmacy services, smoking cessation and more with a pharmacist.
  • Blood Chemistry $35.00
    This screening provides baseline information on cholesterol, blood glucose, liver, kidneys, thyroid, and more. These screenings can help you and your doctor monitor your health and prevent health issues from becoming emergencies. Information from this screening can also be used to complete your employers’ Health Risk Assessments (HRA). Based on the most current research, fasting is optional for the blood chemistry screening. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER and continue to take your regular medications. Persons with diabetes, should not fast.
  • Blood Count Screening $25.00
    This screening gives you a general picture of your overall health by checking your white blood cells, hematocrit, hemoglobin levels, and blood-clotting abilities. Your body’s ability to fight infection, anemia, liver disease and certain cancers can be discovered with this screening.
  • Blood Pressure Screening
    This screening gives you your blood pressure reading. Blood pressure is the force in the arteries when the heart beats (systolic pressure) and when the heart is at rest (diastolic pressure). Blood pressure can fluctuate with exercise, injury, illness, and emotional reactions. Health care professionals check the participant's blood pressure. If the participant's blood pressure falls outside normal ranges, further evaluation by a healthcare provider is encouraged. Your blood pressure should not exceed 119/79. Pulse Screening is primarily measured on the participant's wrist. The pulse corresponds to each beat of the heart. The normal number of pulse beats per minute in the average adult varies from 60 to 80, with fluctuations occurring with exercise, injury, illness and emotional reactions.
  • Body Fat Skinfold Screening
    Find out your body fat levels with this screening by having your skin, muscle and fat thickness measured. Maintaining good body fat and muscle levels increases your overall strength and metabolism and reduces your risk of injury.
  • Cardiac Risk Assessment
    In less than 3 minutes, the Cardiac Risk Assessment evaluates your current chance of having a heart attack in the next 10 years, and provides recommendations to improve your heart health. If educators are not available at the site, computers with internet access may be available for individual assessment. Online assessment is also available by going to www.health-e-solutions.org.
  • Colon Cancer Screening Kit $30.00
    This take-home/mail-in kit checks for human blood in the stool. Also, learn about preventing colorectal cancer, one of the most preventable cancers, and current recommendations for further screening, including who/when should get a colonoscopy.
  • Diabetes Risk Assessment / Education
  • First Aid
    Available in case medical assistance is needed.
  • Hearing Screening
    This screening consists of a visual examination of your ears and measures your ability to hear high, medium and low range sounds. PLEASE NOTE: THOSE WITH HEARING AIDS DO NOT QUALIFY FOR THIS SCREENING.
  • Height/Weight/Body Mass Index (BMI) Screening
    This screening provides you with your Body Mass Index (BMI), using your height, weight and waist measurement to identify your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. BMI is considered reliable for assessing obesity. It does not take into account a person's fat-to-muscle ratio (muscle takes up space but weighs more than fat). Therefore, it is not a reliable measure for athletes or highly physically active participants.
  • Hemoglobin A1c Screening $35.00
    A1C is a blood screening that measures your average blood sugar control for the past 2 to 3 months. The results give you a good idea of whether or not you are at risk for diabetes. For people with diabetes it indicates how well your diabetes treatment plan is working.
  • Lung Function Screening
    This screening will determine if you have breathing issues such as asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and pulmonary fibrosis. The goal of this screening is to measure the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled.
  • Memory Screening
    The purpose of this screening is to test short-term memory related to Alzheimer’s disease using a memory impairment screening tool. Education about Alzheimer’s and other varieties of dementia will also be provided.
  • Metabolic Syndrome Screening
    This screening provides you with an overview of risk factors for Metabolic Syndrome. It is important to be aware of these risks because people with this condition have a significantly increased long-term risk of developing cardiovascular disease (heart attack, heart failure and stroke). Furthermore, people who have Metabolic Syndrome but haven’t been diagnosed with diabetes, have a very high risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes within the next 5-10 years.
  • Nutrition Screening
    This screening provides an opportunity to speak with a dietitian and receive valuable information and resources on how to make healthy lifestyle changes. Poor nutrition or an unhealthy diet may lead to obesity, heart disease, diabetes or other nutrition-related diseases. Answer a short nutritional questionnaire to find out if your health may be at risk from an unhealthy diet.
  • Oral Health Screening
    This screening identifies clinical signs of tooth and gum disease as well as oral abnormalities, sores, and lesions. Education regarding the importance of oral health to promote overall health, and risk factors for oral diseases are also provided.
  • Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) (Persons with a Prostate) $35.00
    The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has recently recommended against routine screening of persons with a prostate with the PSA test. Please speak to your healthcare provider if you have questions. PSA is a blood screening that measures a protein that is only produced by the prostate gland. Elevations of PSA may occur in persons with non-cancerous prostate diseases or prostate cancer. A normal PSA level does not entirely exclude the possibility of prostate cancer. A traditional manual screening, performed by a health care provider is strongly encouraged in conjunction with PSA screening.
  • Pulse Oximetry Screening
    This is a simple, non-invasive screening that measures the percent of oxygen in the blood. This number is obtained by placing an instrument on the finger which checks the percent of hemoglobin that is saturated with oxygen. This instrument can detect low blood oxygen before symptoms occur which can lead to lung and heart problems.
  • Spinal Screening
    The purpose of this screening is to identify any problems with your spinal alignment and educate you about the importance of proper spinal alignment for a healthy body.
  • Stress Assessment for Families & Teens
  • Testosterone $40
    Testosterone is an androgen, or a sex hormone, produced by both males and females. In males it is produced primarily by the testes, in females, the ovaries account for half of the testosterone in the body. Women have a much smaller amount of testosterone in their bodies compared to men, but testosterone plays an important role throughout the body in both men and women. It affects the brain, muscle mass, fat distribution, the vascular system, energy levels, genital tissues, and sexual functioning. Symptoms of low testosterone in males include, decreased body hair, decreased muscle mass, low sex drive and erectile dysfunction. In women, symptoms of too much testosterone can be irregular or absent menstrual periods, infertility, development of facial and body hair and a deepening of the voice. Any abnormal value should be discussed with your health care provider to determine the underlying cause of the abnormal value.
  • Vitamin B12 - $20.00
    Vitamin B12, has a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and the formation of red blood cells. It is one of eight B vitamins. Lower levels of Vitamin B12 can potentially cause severe and irreversible damage, especially to the brain and nervous system. At levels only slightly lower than normal, a range of symptoms such as fatigue, depression, and poor memory may be experienced. Pernicious anemia is also caused by low Vitamin B12 .Taking Vitamin B12 usually corrects symptoms that are caused by a low level.
  • Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy Screening $50.00
    This screening is used to provide you with a baseline level of Vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is now recognized as a worldwide problem. Your body requires Vitamin D to absorb calcium and plays an important role in protecting your bone health. Many studies also suggest an association between low Vitamin D levels and an increased risk of certain types of cancers, nerve disease, immune disease and heart disease. Some Vitamin D is produced in your skin when unprotected skin is exposed to sunlight. Otherwise, you can obtain Vitamin D in foods or take Vitamin D in supplement form. Studies have found that many adults have low Vitamin D levels. This screening requires only one blood draw. Results will be included on the same report with your other blood draw results. If you already take Vitamin D you should have a blood level drawn to make sure you are taking enough Vitamin D.
