Biometric & Mental Health Screening Clinic
Do you know if you are at risk of having a cardiovascular event in the 10 years? Do you know what your heart age actually is based on your health numbers? Register or drop in to the Biometric Clinic and get your health numbers!
The Biometric screening includes blood cholesterol, blood pressure, blood glucose, carbon monoxide, body composition and more! Screening takes approximately 25 minutes from start to finish, is conducted by 2nd and 3rd year nursing students and is interpreted by VIU’s own Health Clinic Nurse Practitioner.
Students can also participate in Mental Health Screening and Sexual Health Screening if they choose. These additional screenings take approximately 15-20 minutes each.
