"Know Your Numbers" helps employees to make lifestyle changes

The "Know Your Numbers" health screenings held at 85 on-site events at Emory Healthcare and Emory University earlier this year provided more than 7,300 Emory employees with important information about their health. The screenings, which measured key biometric numbers including blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, body mass index (BMI) and body composition, also served as a springboard to action for employees.

"We were very pleased with this year's screenings," says Michael Staufacker, Director of Health Management. "Not only with the high participation numbers, but with our employees' feedback about the events. Our exit surveys show that 96% were satisfied with their experience, but, more importantly, 84% reported increased knowledge and motivation to take action to improve their health."
