An estimated 60 million Americans suffer from allergies, and I’m one of them. So is my 5 yr old daughter.
More than 2 million school days and 4 million work days lost each year as a result.
Sam’s Club will host free allergy and health screenings at all locations with a pharmacy this weekend!
- This Saturday, March 9th, 2013
- From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Both members and guests can attend the free screenings, as Sam’s Club pharmacies are open to the public.
The screenings include free in-club health tests valued at up to $200, including:
- Allergy screening/blood test for milk, eggs, pet dander (cats), mold, dust mites, wheat, ragweed, mountain cedar, Bermuda grass and Timothy grass.
- Blood pressure
- Body mass index (BMI)
From Sam’s Club:
“It can be difficult to tell the difference between allergies and a persistent head cold since symptoms such as congestion and irritated eyes are often similar,” said Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president, Sam’s Club Health and Wellness. “Furthermore, as people age, they can grow out of allergies or develop new ones.
Sam’s Club can help our communities sort through such confusion with free allergy and health screenings and on-site pharmacists who can offer advice on how to treat identified allergies.”
Sam’s Club has provided 2.2 million free health and wellness screenings provided in U.S. Sam’s Club locations since 2010!
Impressive commitment to the community. Best of all, they will continue free screenings every second Saturday of the month through October 2013.
