Sam's Club Supports Healthy Resolutions With Free "New Year, New You" Health Screening





BENTONVILLE, Ark., Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sam's Club shows support for healthy resolutions by offering the public free "New Year, New You" health screenings, Saturday, January 11, 2014 from 11a.m. to 3p.m. The 2014 "New You" screening is the first of ten free monthly screenings available to the public at all Sam's Club locations with a pharmacy (581), which will take place the second Saturday of each month through October 2014.

Resolutions to live a healthy life, lose weight and stay fit are among the most common 2014 New Year's goals, according to a 2013 University of Scranton study. The January free screening program at Sam's Club encourages Americans to take preventive responsibility for their health by offering five, free preventive health tests. Each of these screenings can be tracked through the year.

The free screenings are available while supplies last, valued at up to $100 and include:

  • Glucose
  • Total cholesterol
  • Blood pressure
  • Body mass index (BMI)
  • Vision screening/testing

"For the fourth consecutive year, Sam's Club pharmacy associates are giving back to our communities with the free health screening program," said Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president, Sam's Club Health and Wellness. "Last year, the program performed more than 896,000 free screenings over 10 monthly events in our clubs. In 2014, our pharmacies continue to offer world-class counsel, amazing savings and easy access to prescriptions, immunizations and vital preventive screenings to keep our communities aware of their health."

Sam's Club offers amazing savings on pharmacist-administered flu shots and nine other immunizations, plus $4/ $10 generic prescription prices to the public. Sam's Plus and Sam's Business members receive an additional eight percent on name-brand prescriptions, 40 percent on generics not part of the $4/ $10 generic prescription program and access to the Extra Value Drug List, featuring 10 to 30 percent savings on dozens of name-brand and generic prescriptions. Restrictions apply. 

Sam's Club features pharmacy benefits and health tips about wellbeing and the importance of healthy living in the January/ February 2014 issue of Healthy Living Made Simple magazine, featuring Trisha Yearwood. With a circulation of 8 million, the highest of any health-focused publication, Healthy Living Made Simple is available at Sam's Club Pharmacy, Member Service counters and online at SamsClub.com/healthyliving.
