WOONSOCKET, R.I., April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS/pharmacy, the nation's leading retail pharmacy, officially announced today the April schedule of Project Health (Proyecto Salud in Spanish), a wellness program delivering more than $21 million worth of free health screenings to multicultural communities throughout 2012.
As part of National Minority Health Month, CVS/pharmacy will offer free health screenings at select stores in African American and Latino communities in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, DC."Access to preventive care is one way we help the communities we serve," said Troyen A. Brennan, M.D., M.P.H., Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer , CVS Caremark. "We know chronic conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes are a tremendous burden on multicultural communities and detecting these issues is a very important first step on a person's path to better health." The program, which aims to prevent disease through early detection, grew from CVS/pharmacy's highly successful To Your Health/A Su Salud campaigns. This year, Project Health will offer an array of free comprehensive health risk assessments and screenings during disease-specific national health awareness months. Over 1,000 Project Health events are scheduled for 2012. Project Health is a part of efforts by CVS/pharmacy to improve access to preventive care and ensure that cost is not a barrier to important services, like professional health assessments and screenings. Project Health events, while offered to address and raise awareness of ethnic health disparities, are open to everyone and will not require an appointment.
