Sam’s Club® Helps Women Prioritize their Health by Offering Free Screenings

In-club screenings available to both members and the public on
Saturday, October 10

BENTONVILLE, Ark.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Even though they know they need to look after their health, many women
cite time as a key barrier in getting themselves to the doctor.1

To help women be more proactive about their health, Sam’s Club is
hosting convenient, free screenings for both members and the public.
These screenings, which can easily be worked into regular weekend
errands, are confidential and available at all Sam’s
Club locations
with a pharmacy (612 locations) on Saturday, October
10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. They are valued at $1502 and
include tests for:

  • Blood pressure
  • Total cholesterol
  • HDL (high-density lipoprotein or good cholesterol)
  • Glucose
  • Body mass index (BMI)

“Many women today are so busy taking care of their family, friends and
careers that they unintentionally deprioritize their own health,” said
Tara Raddohl, director of corporate communications at Sam’s Club. “With
this in mind, we are proud to offer free health screenings as a simple,
quick way for women to get a wide range of tests.”

In addition to monthly health screenings, Sam’s Club pharmacies provide
savings and preventive care to each community they serve, such as
year-round immunizations for children and adults.* Licensed pharmacists
can administer walk-in flu shots and nine other important immunizations,
including the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine. Eligible Sam’s Club
Plus members can also save even more on prescriptions, including
exclusive discounts on select generic prescriptions, some of which are
available free of charge or at a discounted cost of $4 or $10 for a
30-day supply. This benefit is part of the Sam’s Club Extra
Value Drug List
, through which Sam’s Club Plus members also receive
10-30 percent savings on select brand name medications.

Additional information about Sam’s Club health and wellness offerings
can be found at
and in the Sam’s Club exclusive bi-monthly wellness magazine, Healthy
Living Made Simple
, which reaches approximately eight million
