Developing physical wellness empowers you to take charge of your health to maintain a healthy quality of life.


Physical wellness means engaging in physical activity, healthy eating habits and participating in health promotion activities.

A quick trip to the Regis Neighborhood Health clinic could give you a more in depth look at your current health.

Biometric screenings provide vital health information for those looking to get a more in-depth look at their health. The screening is an evaluation to help provide past, current and potential medical problems and it is an important component in knowing about your overall wellness. Regis Neighborhood Health offers this screening at a low cost to you. In just 15 minutes you can get all of the following information on your health.

  • Full Lipid Panel (Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides)
  • Blood Glucose
  • Body Compositions (height, weight, BMI, body fat percentage, waist circumference)
  • A1c, PSA, TSH, cotinine and many other tests
  • On-site biometric screenings provide an easy, inexpensive and convenient way to know more about your health.

Biometric screenings also include the following:

  • Individual results: after each screening you will receive a personal copy of your results plus education on how to read your results and what to do with your results.
  • Expert health education: The licensed professionals at Regis Neighborhood Health will analyze your results for you and recommend the right specialist for your needs.  

Who knows, the specialist you need could be right here on campus!

Regis Neighborhood Health recommends that you come in to get a biometric screening every six months.
