Do You Know Your Numbers?

Mount Nittany Health’s mission is to make people healthier. This happens in so many ways – one of those ways is by educating the community about health and wellness topics.
On April 1, Mount Nittany Physician Group kicked off a health education campaign called Do You Know Your Numbers?
Championed by Stephen Donelan, MD, nephrology, Mount Nittany Physician Group, the campaign is designed to educate our patients and the community about key healthcare numbers that should be known and monitored by everyone.
These numbers are:

  • Weight
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Blood pressure
  • Blood glucose (HbA1c test)
  • Cholesterol (HDL and LDL)
  • Kidney function

 Throughout the month of April, Mount Nittany Physician Group employees will don Do You Know Your Numbers? buttons and will distribute information to patients about these key healthcare indicators.
Next time you visit your healthcare provider, why not take a few moments to learn your own numbers. Knowing your numbers – and taking the steps to improve them, if necessary – can put you on the path to a healthier you!
