3 Steps to Success

Step 1: Biometric Screenings

Core Actions2

Free on-campus biometric screenings provide you with key indicators of your health status, such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels and blood sugar. Participants receive immediate feedback on their results.

If you missed our Fall 2017, March 2018, and May 2018 biometric screenings, we are offering our final "last chance" on-campus screenings for the 2017-2018 Be in the Know campaign year. Register now for a "last chance" biometric screening scheduled:

  • Wednesday, June 27, 9am - 1pm, Irvine Auditorium, Amado Recital Hall  

If you can't attend an on-campus screening, you have the option to submit results from biometric screenings conducted by your physician between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018. Download and complete the Be in the Know Biometric Screening Consent Form, and then follow the submission directions on the form. For the 2017-2018 Be in the Know campaign year, the deadline to submit your biometric screening documentation is July 31, 2018.


Step 2: Online Health Assessment

Take the Online Health Assessment after you’ve completed a biometric screening, it’s time to take StayWell’s online health assessment. Complete this second Core Action to earn your first $100 incentive, plus be on your way to earning up to $300 this campaign year. The online health assessment is available for completion at any time, but we suggest you first complete your biometric screening.

For the 2017-2018 Be in the Know campaign year, the deadline to complete the online health assessment is August 31, 2018.
