Date:3/23/2011

and medication reviews with a CVS Pharmacist are available. Dental and chiropractic screenings and referrals for mammograms and pap smears are also available in select locations. No appointment is necessary.

"These preventive health screenings will provide members of the Los Angeles community valuable information needed in order to make positive changes, before the onset of serious health issues like diabetes and heart disease," says Chris Bos, Area Vice President for CVS/pharmacy.

In 2010, the "To Your Health" program detected health concerns in an alarmingly high percentage of participants. Of those screened:

  • 34 percent had high cholesterol
  • 38 percent had a high to moderate risk of developing osteoporosis
  • 37 percent had hypertension
  • 29 percent had blood sugar levels that indicated a risk for diabetes

  • In addition to offering free health risk assessments targeting chronic disease, the 2011 "To Your Health" community program has expanded to provide wellness services, including Healthy Beauty, which emphasizes total body care. As a sponsor of the CVS/pharmacy "To Your Health" events in Los Angeles, Unilever will offer customers information about skin care, hair maintenance and personal care to help them be at their very best each and every day.

    For more information and a full calendar of "To Your Health" events, visit www.cvs.com/toyourhealth or call 888-604-0333.  For more information about The Makeover Mile or to register, please visit www.makeovermile.com.
