Sam’s Club ‘springs forward’ with latest offering of free health screenings
BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Studies show that springing forward for Daylight Saving Time can impact people’s health by disrupting sleep cycles and increasing stress, especially for those who are already at risk. To help Americans make a smooth transition into spring, Sam’s Club Pharmacies nationwide will host free health screenings for both members and the public on Saturday, March 12 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., while supplies last.
These “Healthy Mind, Healthy Body” screenings are free, confidential and available to the public at all Sam’s Club locations with a pharmacy (613 locations). The screenings are valued at up to $150.
“Spring is a perfect time to get a better understanding of your health, set new goals and refresh your routine,” stated Jill Turner-Mitchael, SVP Sam’s Club consumables & health and wellness. “With this in mind, as we all spring forward this weekend, we’re proud to offer free screenings as an easy way for people to reset not only their clocks but their health.”
In addition to free health screenings, Sam’s Club Pharmacies also provide other savings and preventive care to each community they serve, such as year-round immunizations for children and adults.
