Free diabetes screening at Sam's Club

To help encourage early detection of diabetes in communities around the United States, Sam’s Club Pharmacy will host free diabetes screenings to both members and non-members on Sept. 13 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
 
The diabetes screenings are free, confidential and available to the public at all Sam’s Club locations with a pharmacy (599 locations). The screenings, valued at $250, include tests for:

  • A1C blood test;
  • Glucose;
  • Total cholesterol;
  • HDL (good cholesterol);
  • Risk ratio (relationship between total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol);
  • Blood pressure;
  • Body fat percentage; and
  • Vision.

“There is clearly a need to offer people an easy and accessible way to detect diabetes early on,” said Jill Turner-Mitchael, SVP Sam’s Club health and wellness. “We are committed to offering solutions like this screening as a way to encourage people to take control of their health and to learn information that can be very valuable in getting them to their long-term health goals.”
