Community Cares Lifestyle & Wellness Expo provides complimentary health screening, wellness assessments, fitness measurements and health calculators for community attendees. All assessments and calculators are licensed from HealthStatus.com, Inc.
Health Screening stations are located throughout the expo, where experienced professionals conduct the screenings. Community members are encouraged to utilize the screening stations such as blood-pressure monitoring, vision testing and cholesterol testing, which provide important health data that will assist in completing Wellness Assessments.
Wellness Assessments offer community members with the opportunity to understand individual health risks, and are provided suggestive actions for improving health and wellness. Computer kiosks are furnished for attendees to complete assessments and professional staff assists if necessary. Individual results are available online or may be printed. Wellness assessments concentrate on health risk, general health and two specific diseases.
Health Risk Assessment is based on the “Healthier People Study,” which was conducted by the Carter Center at
Emory University. There are approximately forty-five questions which are determined by smoking status and
gender. An individual report is ten pages long, and contains a cover letter which explains assessment and purpose;
a doctor’s chart report; top ten risks of mortality; basic measures for height, weight, sex, BMI and other important
details; at-risk behavior tendencies; ideas for improvement or encouragement in risk areas.
General Health Assessment uses the Healthier People algorithms as a baseline, and all elements of the health risk
assessment are factored. Additional input such as family history, stress and depression are incorporated. A shorter
report is provided, focusing less on statistics and more on healthier habits through feedback and encouragement.
