On-campus biometric screenings for faculty and staff

UPMC Health Plan is offering free on-site biometric screenings for faculty and staff this spring at the William Pitt Union.

These screenings measure blood pressure, height and weight, as well as total HDL, and LDL cholesterols, triglycerides and blood glucose levels. You’ll be able to review your results after your screening and learn steps to maintain your health.

These screenings are available to all faculty and staff who have UPMC Health Plan coverage through the University. Health incentive credit also can be earned for this activity.
