Early detection is the key to prevention. Many of the health complications people face today, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and certain cancers, may be prevented and/or controlled through lifestyle changes. Due to hectic daily schedules and family responsibilities, most people wait until they have symptoms before they see a doctor for a routine physical.
This health screening includes measurement of blood pressure, height, weight, and a fasting blood draw. A fasting blood draw is a standard blood test (PDF 258KB) that includes a blood chemistry profile to assess total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, glucose. Benefits & Wellness offers these screenings on the Oxford, Middletown, and Hamilton campuses, and at the McCullough-Hyde hospital in Oxford and its facilities in Ross, Ohio and Brookville, Indiana throughout the calendar year. These screenings are at no cost to the employee and spouse/SSDP. Screening results are sent to your physician and uploaded into your Healthy Miami Account.
