Wellbeing Week – NHS Health Check Bus on campus today
14 Nov 2014
Jump on board outside George Kenyon Building (near University Place) between 10am and 4pm
Drop in for:
- Weight management and stop smoking advice and support
- Free health checks or MOTs - come and check out your body mass index (BMI), pulse and blood pressure
- If you are aged 40 and over and registered with a Manchester GP, you can also test your cholesterol and glucose levels
Why are we targeting staff age 40 and over?
As we get older, we often develop conditions such as high blood pressure, cholesterol or being overweight, which can lead to a number of potentially more serious problems like diabetes, stroke and heart conditions – known as cardiovascular disease (CVD). Learn how you can reduce these risks.
