  • Urine glucose (sugar)
  • Blood glucose (sugar)
  • Blood work
  • Immunization history
  • Allergy history

Factors that should be considered in determining whether a wellness assessment program would be beneficial include:

  • High rate of absenteeism
  • Low rate of productivity
  • Low employee morale

Educational presentations may be arranged to address specific needs identified during the assessment program (see 2630(A)).
