Cholesterol screenings

As part of Heart Health Month, the University Health Center is offering cholesterol screenings for UGA faculty, staff and emeritus employees as well as their spouses and domestic partners. A total cholesterol screening will cost $10. Screenings will be held Feb. 13-16 and 20-23 from 8 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. No appointment is necessary, and participants should not eat anything after midnight on the night before the test. Participants should bring a valid UGA ID and drink plenty of water so that they are fully hydrated when their blood is drawn. Results, which will be sent electronically, will include a lipid profile with a breakdown of HDL/LDL (the “good” and “bad” cholesterol) and triglycerides.
