- Health screenings this year may include: height, weight, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, balance, bone density, vision, finger stick glucose, hearing, skin cancer, podiatry and lung function. Please note that most screenings are being provided by volunteers from the medical community. There may be last minute changes to this list based on their availability.
