Health Risk Assessment
Learning how to lead a healthier life is the first step toward a happier future. You can take a proactive approach to your health by completing a health risk assessment at our Women’s Center.
Our registered nurse specially-trained to complete health risk assessments reviews the results of the following to determine risks for obesity, coronary heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes and osteoporosis.
- Current health status, such as height, weight, BMI (body mass index), glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure
- Family medical history of cancer, heart disease and diabetes
- Personal lifestyle behaviors such as diet, exercise, smoking, and stress management.
The nurse will discuss your assessment results privately with you, make recommendations and help you coordinate any necessary follow-up care. Each year, a follow-up assessment can be done to track the steps you have taken to lead a healthier life.
