This is a new program available to the greater Burlington community.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont hosts a First Wednesday Wellness Program on the first Wednesday of each month. They invite individuals to take charge of their health and access free screenings at the Blue Cross Information and Wellness Center located at the Blue Mall on Dorset Street in South Burlington. (Screenings include body composition, blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose and a stroke assessment.) Knowing your screening "numbers" is an important first step in achieving better health and wellness.
Those who attend the program can also meet with certified wellness coaches to discuss improving their health, if they so desire. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont is pleased to team up with Fletcher Allen Health Care to provide this service free of charge. (Your health insurance will not be billed).
Screenings are offered on the first Wednesday of each month from 5 to 7 PM and typically take approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
