Date:4/14/2009

e most in need. Together, we can tap into our strong community networks to make sure the tour reaches the people who need us most."

The AARP/Walgreens Wellness Tour is comprised of nine custom-equipped buses with dedicated staff of Walgreens trained medical technicians and will travel separate routes canvassing the country. Each bus will spend several days in designated cities providing free services at local events, community centers, Walgreens store locations and other select locations with a special emphasis on underserved communities. Screenings are recommended for adults age 18 and older. Results are instantly provided and consumers are encouraged to visit a doctor or health care provider to discuss them. Visitors also have access to free educational information on a variety of health and wellness issues that are available in both English and Spanish.

This is the fifth year Walgreens has committed to providing free health screenings through a traveling health screening campaign. As proven through previous Walgreens programs, health screenings are a critical method for detecting potential diseases before symptoms are noticed. In fact, of those screened during the 2008 tours:

  • 72.8% had high blood pressure levels
  • 68.2% had high body mass index
  • 65.9% had low bone density
  • 60.5% had a waist circumference outside of the normal range
  • 38.0% had high cholesterol levels
  • 13.3% had high glucose levels

Consumers can learn when the tour is scheduled to serve their community by calling toll-free 1-866-484-8687 or online at www.aarpwalgreens.com/tour. Free, one-year AARP memberships will be given to all adults who receive screenings. Participants under the age of 50 can pass on the free membership to an eligible adult,
