2023 SISC Health Smarts Screenings

Know Your Numbers

The SISC Health Smarts Biometric Screening program measures your blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, and other important health-risk indicators. The screening is provided onsite at the IVC and Kentfield campuses and takes less than 15 minutes. Your results, along with an explanation of what they mean for your health status, will be available online. You can even track your year-to-year progress, if you’ve participated in prior screening events. Your test results are completely confidential; nobody at COM will have access to the results. However, you certainly are encouraged to print out your results and share with your doctor. Many past participants have commented about how beneficial the screenings have been, alerting them to previously unknown health issues, that are most easily controlled when discovered early. Some past participants have even said that their screening provided lifesaving information.
