FREE Biometric Screenings & Flu Shots
Click Here for dates, times and locations.
The GFPS District will once again be providing biometric screening and flu shot clinics for all employees and their spouses. The health and wellness screenings are completely voluntary. But we hope you’ll take advantage of this convenient, free opportunity to improve your health right at your worksite. To sign up for your screening on-line click on this Link How To Schedule A Biometric Screening. If you do not have access to a computer, please call 1-877-304-7055 and speak with someone who can setup an appointment for you. This is a first come, first served process and space may be limited so you will want to get signed up as soon as possible.
Screenings will include a brief health questionnaire, as well as the following tests:
• Height, weight, waist circumference
• Glucose (blood sugar)
• Blood pressure
• Body Mass Index (BMI)
Getting screened is fast and easy
• Tests use a simple finger-prick method — no large needles.
• Fasting 7 to 8 hours prior is preferred, but is not required. If you choose not to fast or forget to fast you can still have a screening. Your results will just not include the glucose.
• You get your results immediately.
• You get immediate one-on-one coaching from a certified health educator about what your results mean and how to take action to improve your health.
