Check your Numbers
Stop by Cigna's Health Improvement Tour inside the show for biometric screenings where you can learn your blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and body mass index (BMI) – called the Core Four. These are the key health numbers that underlie the majority of health costs, as evidenced in recent Cigna studies showing that knowing the Core Four can identify risks for major chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Health coaches will be onsite to help people understand these Core Four numbers and explain how to take follow-up steps.
