Know Your Numbers

Macalester wants you to get a health screening so you can know your numbers. A health screening includes measuring your blood pressure, blood glucose, triglycerides, cholesterol and BMI. These critical numbers are key to understanding your general health and your risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, and strokes.

Download and print a health screening form here, then have your health care provider fill it in and fax it to HealthPartners confidential fax line. Voila! Macalester will add $20 to your paycheck. Note: the health screening is completely confidential.

Health Assessment and Follow-up Program

There’s no greater reward than living a happier, healthier life. But just in case you need a little more encouragement, Macalester will add $50 to your paycheck for taking the confidential Health Assessment combined with either completing a well-being program or meeting with our Wellness Coach to review your assessment results by June 30. (Note: Plan ahead; many of the online activities take eight weeks to complete.)

The health assessment is available between February 3 and June 30, 2014. By taking this 15-minute assessment you’ll learn what areas of your health could use some work and what you’re already doing that’s working in your favor. The assessment will ask you questions about your diet, exercise, sleep habits, stress and other behaviors. It’s quick, easy and confidential. Here’s what to do:
