The Innovation Competition at Dickinson will be hosting a mixer on Thursday, February 5th at 7 PM in the Rector Science Atrium. We invite students from all majors and class years to join us for a chance to meet fellow innovators and possible teammates. Given that teams will need to be interdisciplinary, we have will have nametags for each discipline of the college as well as students that are undeclared to assist with team formation. We hope the mixer will provide a chance for students to interact with others that share the same interest in creating an innovation and joining the competition. The Innovation committee will be there to answer any questions or concerns students may have. We look forward to seeing you there. Questions may be directed to Eddie Finocchiaro at finocche@dickinson.edu

Free Biometric Screenings - January & February 2015

Holy Spirit Carlisle Lab
1211 Forge Road, Suite 400
Carlisle
Monday through Friday - January & February
Hours: 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Holy Spirit Health System will administer a free Biometric Screening for employees of the college during the months of January and February at the Holy Spirit Carlisle Lab. Additionally, spouse/domestic partners and dependents ages 18-26 years are also eligible to participate. The screening hours for this location are from 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Fasting for 10-12 hours prior to screening is required for the most accurate screening results.

As one of the required steps for the Employee Wellness holistic health incentive program (HHIP) during 2014-2015, this screening provides a snapshot of your health looking at your total cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, height, weight, waist circumference and body mass index (BMI). It is a collective review of your risk factors for developing heart disease, stroke and diabetes known as Metabolic Syndrome. The number of people with metabolic syndrome increases with age, affecting more than 40 percent of people in their 60s and 70s. Several factors increase your risk for developing the syndrome – high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or high blood sugar, a lack of physical activity, smoking, and family history. Monitoring your blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol levels and BMI gives you the ability to stay on top of your overall health. Knowing your numbers provides the information to you for conversations with your personal physician. This information is also needed to complete the online health risk assessment (HRA), which is another step in the HHIP. Do you know your numbers?

Free-screening vouchers are required for this off-campus screening option and are only available to those who have not already completed the biometric screening for 2014-2015; participation is limited to one free biometric screening per fiscal/academic year. If you have not previously completed the biometric screening for 2014-2015, please stop by the Office of Human Resource Services between 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, to pick-up your voucher for the free biometric screening, or send a request via email to devwell@dickinson.edu.
