To contain the spread of COVID-19, in-person health screenings will not be provided until further notice
Get a "Snapshot" of Your Health
A great way to get started with LIVE FOR LIFE is to participate in My Health - a free, confidential health assessment. Spend as little as 20 minutes and discover all of the positive health habits you have. Plus, develop strategies for those you may want to change.
How to Get a Health Screening
Provide your recent health measures, including your current weight, height, blood pressure, total cholesterol and blood glucose. This information may be submitted by attending a Health Screening with a registered nurse. Appointments typically take 20 minutes to complete and are available in our offices or at a mobile site. The schedule for mobile sites is available at our Calendar of Events. To schedule at our offices, call 684-3136, option 1. LIVE FOR LIFE is located in the Employee Health and Wellness office at Duke Clinic in the sub-basement, Orange Zone (Room 00320). Hours are 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (except noon - 2 p.m. on Wednesdays).
Family Health History
Although most individuals believe that knowing their family history is important to their personal health, the majority never collect, record, or share this information. To encourage this process, the Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy and LIVE FOR LIFE have teamed up to increase awareness of family history.
- A Guide to Family Health History provides you the tools to collect your family health history. Several Duke employees have shared their own health stories and why they believe knowing family health history is so important.
- A Guide for Understanding Genetics and Health provides information to help you better understand the role genetics plays in your health. There are brief descriptions about some common conditions and information about resources here at Duke.
