Over a year ago, I wrote about Walgreens, their brand of health and wellness products and the Way to Well fund and it was about that time that Walgreens established the Walgreens Way to Well Commitment®, which is a four-year, $100 million initiative to improve the everyday health of Americans nationwide. But, that was not all, in fact the initiative is also dedicated to providing accessible, affordable resources for prevention and early detection of chronic diseases - for free! I am pleased to announce that they are on their way to Cleveland!
Yep, the Walgreens Way to Well Health Tour with AARP (a community outreach program) will be in and around the Cleveland area beginning 7/12 through 7/30. This national mobile tour will be providing free health tests, educational materials and consultations, focusing on prevention and early detection of today's leading diseases: heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
The free health tests provided include:
Body Mass Index
Real Body Age
These tests are valued at over $100 and will only take about 20 minutes to complete. That is less time then the average sitcom and a whole lot more informative! Anyone 18 and older is encouraged to visit the tour and there is no appointment or insurance is necessary, just show up.
This is a nationwide tour so don't be disappointed if you are not in the Cleveland area - they will probably be making it to your area one day soon. Go to www.walgreens.com/waytowell to find your nearest tour stop location.
Even if you are unable to make the tour you can still contribute to this community outreach campaign by simply purchasing Walgreens brand health and wellness products! 1¢ from the purchase of each product, up to $3 million annually, will support bringing preventative wellness services to local communities through the Walgreens Way to Well Fund®.
