College of Charleston employees, retirees and covered spouses whose primary insurance coverage is the State Health Plan (Standard or Savings Plan) are eligible for a free preventative health screening on Thursday, Aug. 4, 2022. Held at Trident Technical College’s Aeronautical Training Center (building 1000 at 7000 Rivers Ave., in North Charleston), this screening is valued at $300 in many healthcare settings and is sponsored by the South Carolina Public Employee Benefit Authority. The registration deadline is Monday, Aug. 1, 2022.
The screening components include the following:
- Lipid profile – total cholesterol, LDL, HDL and triglycerides
- Chemistry profile – Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine, glucose, electrolytes, chloride and bicarbonate
- Hemogram – Red and white blood cell count, hemoglobin and hematocrit
- Blood pressure, height and weight
Within three weeks after the screening, participants will receive their results, with any values outside the normal range highlighted. To prevent duplicate tests – and to save money – participants are encouraged to pass the results along to their physician.
To register, complete the registration form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Aug. 1, 2022. Please include the subject line, “Charleston Regional Screening.” You will be notified of your appointment time by email.
