Cholesterol screening

The University Health Center will offer UGA faculty, staff, retirees and their spouse or domestic partner a cholesterol screening (blood lipid profile) on Feb. 11-14 and 18-21 from 8 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m. No appointment is necessary. The lipid profile will give a total cholesterol level, along with the HDL/LDL breakdown (the “good” and “bad” cholesterol) and triglycerides.

The cost is $10, and participants should not eat anything after midnight the night before the test. Also drink plenty of water to be fully hydrated at the time blood is drawn. Results will be sent by mail. Bring a current UGA ID or picture ID. Get additional information online at or by calling 706-542-8690.
