Sam's Club Offers Free Diabetes Health Screenings Event
Date:8/30/2012

BENTONVILLE, Ark., Aug. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sam's Club Pharmacy locations are offering free diabetes and vision screenings for members and the public on Saturday, Sept. 8 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1.9 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed each year, and the disease is the leading cause of new cases of blindness in adults in the U.S. If trends continue, 1 out of 3 U.S. adults will have diabetes by 2050.

As diabetes diagnoses continue to rise, a simple screening can help more Americans proactively manage their health. Sam's Club's free diabetes screenings are valued at more than $150 and include:

  • Glucose tests
  • A1C tests (blood test for diagnosed diabetics that measures blood sugar)
  • Vision tests*
  • Blood pressure and BMI (body mass index) tests

"Knowing the links between risk factors, choices and solutions prepares our members to better manage--or even prevent--diabetes," said Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president, Sam's Club Health and Wellness. "As we offer the diabetes screenings for a second year, I am reminded of Member stories where they came in for a screening or product samples and learned about a possible health problem, which led them to make an appointment with a health care provider. It is stories like this that remind us why we offer these invaluable free screenings to our communities."

Sam's Club has dedicated the current issue of Healthy Living Made Simple Magazine to diabetes lifestyle management and prevention tips for September and women's health tips for October. The next monthly health screening on October 13 will also focus on women's health.

Sam's Club has extended its health offerings this fall to include immunizations from registered nur
