FSAP TO HOST HEALTH FAIR, MARCH 31
The Faculty Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) will host a Worksite Lifestyle Planning Program health fair on Thursday, March 31, from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. in Miller-Ward Alumni House. The event is open to all Emory employees, including prior participants.
Participants will be asked to fill out questionnaires on their own health and lifestyle activities, and will receive a lipid profile screening, glucose and blood pressure testing (fasting is recommended but not required for best results), and body mass index calculations. Assessments will be confidential, and no identifying information of results will be released.
To receive their results, participants will need to attend a follow-up session on April 26, also at Miller-Ward. Individual lifestyle coaching sessions will be made available to participants who request them.
