Sam's Club® Offers Free Brain Health Screening Event





BENTONVILLE, Ark., April 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone forgets sometimes. A certain degree of memory problems are a common part of aging. There is a difference, however, between changes in memory and memory loss from Alzheimer's disease. One in eight adults over the age of 65 is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and 20 percent of the elderly population suffers from some form of dementia.*  If detected early, some memory loss can be manageable by taking simple steps to improve brain function.

To help communities get smart about brain health, Sam's Club is providing free health screenings at all Sam's Club locations with a pharmacy, Saturday, April 14 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for members and the public. The free brain health screenings include a memory test with educational materials on Alzheimer's and dementia provided by the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, glucose**, body mass index (BMI) and blood pressure tests, typically valued up to $100. During the screenings, Sam's Club pharmacies will also offer free samples of FOCUSFactor supplements by Factor Nutrition Labs.

"As baby boomers continue to age, Sam's Club recognizes that we must help our members manage their whole health, including their brains," said Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president, Sam's Club Health and Wellness. "We're offering these screenings around the country to provide continued support of preventative health to our communities and to encourage living a long and healthy life."

With more than 1 million free health and wellness screenings provided in U.S. Sam's Club locations since 2011, Sam's Club will continue to serve communities on May 12, 2012 with a Get Active! health screening. Sam's Club licensed professional pharmacists are always available to support their communities with preventative health and wellness solutions, one on one smoking cessation counseling and low prices on the medications patients need. Contact your local club or visit SamsClub.com/healthyliving for participation information.

For more information about basic lifestyle choices to help manage brain health read the March/April issue of Sam's Club Healthy Living Made Simple magazine. Healthy Living Made Simple is the first warehouse club publication dedicated to wellness for every member of the family and has a premier circulation of 8 million members (direct mail and in-club). To view the magazine online or for more information on free health screenings and participating Sam's Club locations, visit SamsClub.com/healthyliving.
