Prepare for Screening

Please follow the steps below. Screenings are held at the Wellness Office in West Hall Annex, Room 205.

Step 1

Complete the online "Personal Wellness Profile” Assessment (start at  wellness.puc.edu):

  • Prior to your appt. (no more than 7 days prior) OR
  • During your appt. (please add an additional 15 minutes to the usual 45 minute appt. time).
  • Under “My Health Tools,” click “Personal Wellness Profile” to “Start a New Assessment.” Save your assessment at the save prompt.

Step 2

Please fast for 12 hours prior to your appointment (but drink water as usual) and avoid vigorous exercise in the 2 hours prior to your appt. We will check the clinical values listed below. If you choose to retrieve any of these values from your primary care physician to be used in lieu of in-office testing, please make sure they were taken within the 4 months prior to your wellness appointment. Please bring a copy of the results with you to your screening appointment or have them faxed directly to the Wellness Office at 965-6240 before our appointment. Screenings are held at the Wellness Office in West Hall Annex, Room 205.

Step 3

Wear loose fitting clothing and comfortable shoes. Most employees are able to complete this set of exercises in comfortable work attire but workout clothes and shoes are appropriate, as well. Unless exempt, there will be a step test, grip strength, curl ups (scrunches), push ups, and flexibility test.

Step 4

After your screening appointment, your biometrics (lab) values and fitness test results will be entered into your online assessment.  You will receive a copy of the Summary Report electronically and you may access your Comprehensive Report via your personal online Wellness page.
