OKLAHOMA CITY – Sam’s Club is offering free health screenings for women this Saturday, the company announced this week.
While men are well-known for avoiding the doctor, a recent survey found that 82% of women say they would rather do all of their family’s grocery shopping than go to the doctor.
To help encourage women to prioritize their health and to offer them a convenient way to do so, Sam’s Club is hosting free health screenings on Saturday, October 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., while supplies last.
These “Support Her Health” screenings are confidential and available to both members and the public at all Sam’s Club locations with a pharmacy. They will include the following tests:
- Total cholesterol
- HDL (good cholesterol)
- Blood pressure
- Body fat percentage
- Vision (not available at all locations)
- Hearing (not available at all locations)
“Women often prioritize their families’ needs and work responsibilities over their own health and wellness but it’s important to ensure regular health checkups don’t fall off the to-do list,” said Tara Raddohl, senior director, corporate communications, Sam’s Club. “With that in mind, we hope women take advantage of our free in-club screenings this Saturday, as an easy way to learn more about the current state of their health.”
Sam’s Club offered a similar screen for men back in June, as well as other free events during the year, as part of its comprehensive commitment to support health and wellness.
