Make smart decisions about your health!

The OPA, in collaboration with WashU Wellness Connection, offers free health screenings to WashU postdocs twice a year. Knowing “your numbers” can empower you to make smart decisions about your health.

A screening test take about 15 minutes to complete and includes the following: 

  • Height, weight, waist circumference, body fat percentage;
  • BMI & blood pressure; 
  • Glucose, Total Cholesterol, HDL, TC/HDL ratio and A1c.

Only you will receive your results and you will have the opportunity to connect with WashU resources. A1c tests are processed off-site and results will be mailed to your home within three weeks. 

Health screening events are scheduled every year in March during the Annual Postdoc Symposium and in September during National Postdoc Appreciation Week.
