Biometric Screenings

Happy biometric screening participant

Biometric screenings refer to important health screenings.  Knowing these numbers is important to knowing your health status and can be a great starting point for setting a health goal.  Biometric screenings may include blood pressure, body mass index, waist circumference, cholesterol or glucose. 

 

Can I receive my biometric screenings at a campus event?

At this time, no biometric health screening events are scheduled. 

 

What is involved?

A nurse from the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Live Well Work Well Team will measure your height and weight to calculate your Body Mass Index.  They will then take your waist circumference measurement and your blood pressure.  After receiving this screening, you'll know your numbers and will learn more about your clinical risk factors. 

 

What happens as a result of the screening?

You will have a baseline of results to which future measurements can be compared. You may want to share your results with your Health Coach or discuss your results further with your primary care provider if the measurements fall outside of the recommended guidelines.

 

Are my results confidential?

Yes.  Your individual screening results will not be shared with Dartmouth College.
