Walgreens And National Urban League Provide Free Health Tests To Urban And Minority Communities With 'Way To Well Health Tour'

"Way to Well reflects our commitment to disease prevention and to improving everyday health through education and early detection. With the NUL, the nationwide traveling health tour is one way we deliver on our pledge to improve lives by providing underserved communities greater access to the resources they need," said John Gremer, Walgreens director of community affairs. "We also thank our customers for supporting this cause with us, and ultimately making this important wellness services program a reality by simply purchasing our brand."

The Way to Well Health Tour is partially funded by customers who support the Walgreens wellness services mission by purchasing Walgreens brand health and wellness products. Beginning February 1, 2013 through December, 2013, 1 cent from the purchase of every Walgreens brand health and wellness product, up to $3 million annually, will support bringing preventive wellness services to local communities through the Walgreens Way to Well Fund ®.

The health tour's bundle of free health tests and risk assessments is designed to provide participants with personal health insights that may indicate symptoms and potential risks for cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Tests include total cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, body mass index, body composition, skeletal muscle, resting metabolism, visceral fat, real body age and body weight*. Collectively, the health tests valued at over $100, are administered to adults age 18 years and older by certified wellness staff and can be completed in approximately 20 minutes. Afterward, participants will consult with a Walgreens pharmacist or certified wellness staff about his or her results.

At tour stop locations, visitors will have access to educational health and wellness resources provided by NUL as well as Walgreens Way to Well partners.  Participants also will be able to sign up for Walgreens Balance ® Rewards program.  It's easy to join and gives members access to sale prices plus opportunities to get points on eligible prescriptions*, immunizations, healthy behaviors and featured items each week.  When members choose to redeem their accumulated points, they are rewarded with dollars off a future purchase made in store and online.

To learn how the purchase of every Walgreens brand health and wellness product supports bringing Way to Well Commitment services, including the Way to Well Health Tour, to local communities through the Walgreens Way to Well Fund ®, visit Walgreens.com/WaytoWell.

*Tests are available to ages 18 and over. Test results are not for diagnostic or treatment purposes and are not conclusive as to the absence or presence of any health condition. Recipients are encouraged to report test results to their primary care provider. Pharmacist consultation with patient does not constitute medical advice.
