Benefits/Health Fairs

BrownRichards can provide medical staff to attend health hairs and offer the following screenings:

Quad Screenings:

The Quad Screenings are the four most popular screenings. Each can be offered on a stand-alone basis. However, when all four are purchased as a bundled package, there is a discount in the fees. We also provide an additional onsite health educator free of charge and one free call to a health coach after the event. Aggregate reporting for the employer is also included in the Quad Screening package.

The Quad Screenings include:

  • Cholesterol Screening - Finger stick cholesterol screening with results in less than 10 minutes. Each participant will receive measures for total cholesterol, HDL (good cholesterol), and the ratio of HDL to total cholesterol. Fasting is not required. Along with a variety of educational handouts, visual aids are used to educate participants about coronary artery disease and the nutritional content of many convenient and fast foods.
  • Glucose Screening -This part of the finger stick screening measures glucose. Regular glucose screenings, combined with early intervention, can reduce complications caused by diabetes. Diabetes may not have any symptoms for 4-7 years while it causes damage in the body.
  • Blood Pressure ScreeningThere are currently 18 million American workers with high blood pressure. Of these, 78% do not have their high blood pressure adequately controlled and 35% are not even aware of their condition.
  • Body Fat Screening – An individual’s body fat percentage is an excellent indicator of overall health. Bioimpendence is used to measure body fat percentage. This screening can easily be done in the corporate setting without the use of calipers. Also calculates BMI. Results are available immediately. A waist to hip ratio can be substituted.

Additional Screenings:

  • HbA1c (Blood Sugar) Screening
