Know Your Numbers

Understand Your Health Today for a Healthier Tomorrow

Know Your Numbers Results

Thank you to the thousands of City employees who participated in our Know Your Numbers campaign and to all the hard-working staff members who made it a success.  Here is what we learned:

  • Only 31% of people said their overall health was very good or excellent; most felt that it was not where they would like it to be
  • 73% had higher than normal blood pressure
  • 68% had at least 3 or more risk factors that they could change with better health habits
  • 55% identified stress as an issue
  • 50% had abnormal waist circumference
  • High glucose and low good cholesterol (HDL) were abnormal and tied at 44%
  • 231 people had glucose that is considered not healthy
  • People overwhelmingly wanted to make healthier lifestyle changes, as well as increase physical activity!

On the evaluations:

  • People appreciated that the testing was offered at so many different sites
  • People wanted to know their numbers and prevent heart disease

We are developing programs to help you meet your health goals.  We've introduced discounts to LA Fitness as a first step!   Thank you for your continued partnership.
