New Participants - Set Goals
After registering at the welcome desk, you will be screened for blood pressure, height and weight (body mass index), cholesterol, glucose and tobacco use. Based on your results, you and a clinical consultant will set attainable goals that focus on achieving or maintaining good health for each area.
At the next session, the Healthy Returns program will return to your campus to measure your progress and provide any additional support you may need to achieve your goals.
Returning Participants - Measure Your Progress
Based on the goals you set at your last session, the Healthy Returns program will measure your progress and provide any additional support you may need to achieve your goals.
