Faculty and staff can complete free and confidential online Health Risk Appraisals by visiting www.case.edu/hra. The appraisals ask participants questions about smoking, drinking, diet, exercise and other factors that influence well-being. Each individual who completes the appraisal will receive confidential, personalized feedback regarding the results.
While no one at the university will see any single person’s responses*, officials will receive aggregated data to identify trends and opportunities involving the campus community.
The university also will offer free health screenings at the benefits fair, Wednesday, Nov. 14, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Thursday, Nov. 15 8 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Thwing Center Ballroom. Those who participate in the screenings before completing the Health Risk Appraisal can enter the information they glean from the screenings on their HRAs. The screenings include measures of blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose, among other factors, and will be offered on a walk-in basis throughout the benefits fair.
Individuals who complete an HRA have the opportunity to win prizes like Visa gift cards, 1-2-1 Fitness Center memberships and iPads.
The closing date to complete an HRA is Saturday, Dec. 15. The overall results will be shared publicly in early 2013.
*This is an IRB-approved effort at the University of Michigan. The university’s data warehouse is maintained in a secure environment. All data is de-identified to further ensure confidentiality.
