The screening, which is most accurate if you fast, includes blood work, a health risk appraisal, height and weight measurements, blood pressure, and lipid panels. Within about a week after your screening, you will receive, via US mail, your personal health profile highlighting any values outside the normal range.  You can even send this report to your physician or take a copy with you on your next doctor's office visit, which may save you money and keep you from duplicating tests. A detailed description of the screening components can be found online here. For more information visit the PEBA Website
