Work with a Health Professional. Get started by participating in My Health - a free, confidential health assessment given through LIVE FOR LIFE, Duke's employee wellness program. My Health gives you the opportunity to have your cholesterol, blood sugar (for those at risk), blood pressure, height and weight measured and your body mass index calculated. An online questionnaire will also give you feedback on your current health measures and health practices. You may complete the questionnaire online or in-person.
