Center for Health Promotion

Services Offered

Healthy IU invites you to take stock of your health and well-being by taking advantage of a FREE health screening. The CONFIDENTIAL, voluntary health screening includes: blood pressure; glucose, total cholesterol; HDL; LDL; triglycerides; height; weight and total body mass Index. A free self-care book is available for first year participants. We hope employees that took advantage of this service last year find the screening a valuable comparison tool. The blood test is a finger stick and you will get results during the visit.

Full time faculty and staff are eligible as are their spouses or same sex domestic partners if covered under the IU medical plan. A $100 incentive (before tax) will be awarded to you should you chose to have the screening done. Per IRS rules, the $100 incentive is paid as supplemental pay and is taxed at a higher rate than normal wages.

To schedule your personal appointment through the IUE Center for Health Promotion, call (765) 973-8216. Please have your employee ID number ready. Each appointment will take approximately 15 minutes. Notification emails are sent monthly in alphabetical order. Do not call to schedule until you have received your email invitation.

Employees and eligible spouses, who prefer to have the screening done by their personal physician, may do so and are still eligible for the incentive. For more information on screening by your personal provider, visit: http://go.iu.edu/5CP

It is important that you fast 10 to 12 HOURS before your scheduled appointment. You may drink as much water as desired and TAKE ANY PRESCRIPTION medicines. BRING YOUR EMPLOYEE ID TO THE SCREENING.

Healthy IU exists to empower, educate, and provide the necessary tools for healthy living for the university-wide campus community. We hope you take advantage of the health screening. Knowledge of your health status is a powerful tool!
