JDOW Employee Biometric Screening
April 5 @ 5:30 am - 7:30 am
John Deere will offer a 23 panel blood screen to all active employees April 4-6, 2019.
This is a comprehensive 23 panel screen that will test the function of the liver, kidneys, thyroid, lipid panel (cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL and LDL), blood sugar and ferritin (iron stores). Many diseases are detected early on the basis of these tests and prior to them becoming a major health problem.
This screen will be offered at a cost of $10 per person and does require a 12 hour fast.
Men can also take the PSA test for an additional $25.
Women can take the CA125 test for an additional $25.
Water and normal medication can be taken, but do not consume any food or drink for 12 hours prior to the test.
If you are diabetic, an 8-hour fast will suffice.
This screen is being offered to all active John Deere employees and their spouses. We ask that all spouses participate on Saturday morning, 6 April at the Union Hall between the hours of 7:00 to 9:00 a.m.
Please do the screening prior to the start of your shift.
Below are the hours and dates for the screening:
4 April 2019 from 5:30 to 7:30 a.m. in the main cafeteria
5 April 2019 from 5:30 to 7:30 a.m. in the main cafeteria
