Getting and staying healthy starts with knowing your body’s biometric numbers. Biometric health screenings that include height, weight, blood pressure, and other values to measure heart health and blood sugar levels are free to all OSU benefits-eligible and benefits-enrolled employees. The screenings are needed to complete your Personal Health & Well-Being Assessment (PHA), the cornerstone of OSU’s Your Plan for Health initiative.
You can obtain your biometric health numbers by visiting your primary care provider or by attending a complimentary, on-campus screening. Screenings are non-fasting and held throughout the year.
