How Do We Assess Risk? The challenge is to find individuals with risk factors Also asymptomatic people in the very earliest stage of disease A Health Risk Assessment (HRA) questionnaire identifies an individual’s risks related to diet, lifestyle, medical history, etc. Clinical testing uncovers unknown health risks and helps to stratify risk levels People determined to be at risk are enrolled in Wellness and Disease Management Programs

Standard Tests & Measurements Total Cholesterol (via Cholestech) HDL Blood Pressure Pulse Irregular Heart Beat Detection Glucose (diabetes risk assessment) Body Fat Percentage BMI (Body Mass Index) Waist Girth Hip Girth Waist-to-Hip Ratio
