Catapult Health Screening – Check Your Numbers at the Wellness Center
November 4th, 5th & 21st at the Wellness Center
Screening appointments offered every 15 minutes. 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Screenings are provided by Catapult Health and the SWOSU Bulldog Wellness.
Why check your numbers?
Checking your numbers is one of the best ways to evaluate your health by identifying your risk and providing motivation for managing your health. Even if you feel great and look healthy, you may not know what's going on inside. Many diseases are "silent" and affect your health long before you feel anything wrong.
Check Your Numbers is a voluntary, fasting health screening including total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides, glucose, blood pressure, weight, body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference. Receive your confidential results (seen only by program staff) and resources for follow-up immediately. Plan for 20 - 30 minutes to complete the screening.
"My appointment was this morning and I can’t begin to say thank you enough for offering this service. I took advantage of it last year and, unfortunately, my numbers were so unhealthy that I was advised to contact my doctor immediately. My numbers were not even close to the healthy range. It was obvious that I needed to do something. Given the needs of other people in my household, I had been postponing my own checkups and now it was time to get in. As a result of your setting off the alarm I am now happy to say that a year of medication (lowest dose I am happy to write), healthier eating, more exercise ---- drum roll please --- I have excellent numbers! Thank you so much for this service. It is invaluable. I’ll be back next year to check again and make sure I stay on track."
