Biometric Screenings & Wellness Coaching

Personal Health Assessment

Following the initial setup of your profile on the LiveWell Vermont wellness portal, it is recommended that you complete the personal health assessment (PHA) found under the “Health” tab on the dashboard/homepage.  The PHA is a series of questions pertaining to your health, diet, fitness and lifestyle. This survey will help track your current health, identify any health-related risk factors, and create a baseline report from which to measure your improvement and success. The PHA is approximately 40 questions in length and takes between 10-15 minutes to complete. You can submit and update the assessment at any time.

Biometric Screenings

Screenings are held at worksites regionally for active and retired state employees.  All information is confidential.  Screenings are designed to support your overall health and are not meant to replace recommended visits or screening tests through your primary care provider. Screenings include the following:

  • Blood pressure
  • Non-fasting blood sugar
  • Total & HDL cholesterol
  • Provision of referrals and educational resources

 How do you sign-up for a biometric screening?
