Health Screening Clinic
The purpose of the Kinesiology and Sport Management (KSM) Health Screening Clinic is to provide preventative health assessments for faculty, staff, and gradutate students of Texas Tech University with low health risk. This clinic will allow students enrolled in the exercise testing and prescription course to participate in a real-world testing health assessment environment and further develop their professional skills. Assessments will include body composition, resting heart rate and blood pressure, blood lipids (fats), blood glucose, cardiorespiratory fitness, muscular endurance, and flexibility. Protocols follow American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) guidelines. Collectively, assessment data will be used to determine overall health-related fitness and design an appropriate exercise program. An initial health screening survey must be completed and submitted to determine eligibility for inclusion into the program. Faculty and graduate assistants will be on site to monitor and provide support during the clinic processes.
Earn 4 hours of PTO
All benefits-eligible employees can earn 4 hours of PTO by completing these assessments and submitting the results to ERS. It is the employee's responsibility to submit the required documentation once results are received from the health screening clinic.

Information will be provided to Texas Tech University Human Resources via secure communication to be put in a personalized health assessment. Your name and R# will be provided to the University to verify your participation in the screening clinic.
