Be Colorado recently hosted a supplemental spring session of biometric screenings from May 5 through May 30. Because this round of screenings was supplemental to the fall session, the majority of the screenings were held at University of Colorado Hospital locations, though all CU Health Plan participants were invited to attend, and many did.
Over the course of this spring session, the Be Colorado wellness program hosted 39 biometric screening events. A total of 7,667 CU Health Plan medical plan participants partook and provided an overwhelming amount of positive feedback regarding their experience – from the simplicity of the sign-up process to the friendly demeanor of the staff members.
Biometric screenings are free and help participants understand where to take specific actions to improve their overall wellbeing by measuring cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, height, weight and waist circumference. Participants receive their results in the mail two to four weeks after their screening is complete. Data collected from the screening is also automatically and confidentially uploaded to their SUCCEED Health Assessment outcomes.
Attend a Be Colorado screening event next spring, when participants are invited take advantage of this personalized evaluation of their health.
