Need a little coaxing to get yourself to your free health checkup this fall?

You’re not alone.

Hundreds of people just like you — some your own co-workers — needed that extra push to make it out to our 2012 health screenings. Some are busy moms who barely have time to get to the doctor when they’re sick. Others were just plain scared of the prick of a needle. So what motivated them?

Group interest, says Susan Mahoney, who was one of many University of Colorado Colorado Springs to show up for the health screenings.

The price tag—free tests and other discounted ones—was too good to pass up, according to CU Denver’s Jeffrey Schildgen.

The chance to catch a small problem before it became a big one won over Nancy Portner, a CU-Boulder employee.

Allow us to give you more incentives to attend our 2013 screenings: They’re free, private, available at convenient locations and open to you and your CU Health Plan-covered spouses and partners. Free flu shots are offered. Oh—and by participating, you’ll be entered to win one of 50 Fitbit activity trackers.

Don’t wait – register for a health screening today!
