Disclaimer: For award eligibility, you must participate in the weigh-ins. Also, since Faculty/Staff are no longer eligible to be treated at the Health Center, the Health Center will serve only as a weigh-in location. Participants cannot be seen for blood pressure, etc. Additionally, patients at the Health Center will be seen first which may result in a short wait to weigh-in if the staff is busy.
