Wellness Profile:

Many health risks don’t make you feel bad until you are well on your way to a serious problem. That’s why measuring your potential risks is important. If you find out you are at risk and receive the proper guidance on how to minimize those risks, you can actually take steps to avoid developing health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Taking the WebMD Wellness Profile through Highmark requires only about 15 minutes, and it can make a huge difference in your life. Once you’ve answered all of the questions, you will receive an easy-to-understand report. Take the first step to a better you! Wellness Profile
