Find out your numbers by getting a biometric screening

by Kelly Menke, Concordia Plans Health and Wellness Educator

February is a great time to get your biometric screening (Vitality Check) done. You can schedule an appointment at a nearby Quest or LabCorp, order an at-home test kit or check to see if an onsite event is being planned at your ministry.

Along with the benefits of knowing lab results, such as cholesterol and blood sugar levels, it’s also important to know your waist circumference and blood pressure. Connecting this information with the Vitality Health Review can help you map out a pathway to improved health. The VHR assesses multiple aspects of health and wellness, like how active you are, how much salt or added sugar you eat, and how many fruits and vegetables you eat on a regular basis. All areas we can set goals and take steps towards improvement or maintaining healthy habits for a healthy heart and more!

BONUS: Completing the VC and VHR can earn you up to 3,800 points per program year! More than enough to BUST OUT OF BRONZE and reach SILVER status before the end of Spring 2023!

  • Go to
