A biometric screening is a short health examination that can help to determine the risk level of a person for certain diseases and medical conditions and help to establish a health baseline. A typical screening will take place in about 15-20 minutes and consist of a blood draw (finger stick to test your HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, and Glucose) and other basic biometrics (BP, Height, Weight, BMI, and waist circumference). When these measurements are combined, your risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes can be assessed. These health conditions can be prevented with early detection. Earn $100 upon completion. Visit https://portal.ichtools.com/ucc.
