Health 1st's upcoming Worksite Screening will take place at the Colbert Education Center & Library on July 23.
Participating in a
preventive health screening will give you and your health care provider
useful information to help you determine what health habits you need to
change, including the following:
- Your cholesterol and hemoglobin levels
- Your heart disease risk factors
- Your BMI (body mass index)
- Your lab values for many other tests
All MUSC employees,
their spouses and their dependents, who are 18 and older and living at
home, can participate. Individuals can participate whether they are an
MUSC, MUHA, UMA, or contract employee. Valued at about $250, this
screening is available to you for $15 if you are a subscriber to the
State Health Plan, or $42 if you are not a subscriber.

Physical activity: part of life
What are the reasons you
give yourself for not including regular physical activity as part of
your life? Some barriers can be lack of time, lack of facilities, lack
of money, or lack of motivation.
To address the barriers in your life, create a chart, listing the three
main ones that block your becoming physically active. Beside each
barrier, list at least one action you can take to overcome the barrier.
