Biometric Screenings
As part of their "Know Your Numbers" campaign, SWAN provides Biometric Screening twice during Healthier You. Biometric Screening sign up will be available at the Kick Off and late registration, and again towards the last few weeks of the program. This year, Biometric Screening will take place January 28th-31st and April 8th-11th. Participants wishing to have Biometric Screening need to sign up during the Kick Off, Late Registration, and the first week of April to secure their time slot.

Biometric Screening is considered a Healthier You Sponsored Activity and you may earn points twice. You may earn additional BONUS points for logging in your Biometric Screening results into your online profile.
