“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).
