Sam's Club promotes breast cancer awareness
Sam’s Club maintains its emphasis on health care this month with a traffic-generating promotion tied in with breast cancer awareness.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Sam's Club is offering free women's health screenings to members and non-members on Saturday, October 12 from 11a.m. to 3p.m. at its 576 clubs which contain a pharmacy.
As part of the day's preventive health screenings, Sam's Club will give away more than 25,000 breast self-exam kits and will also conduct preventive thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) testing that measures thyroid hormone levels in women and identifies overactive and underactive thyroid glands, which can be the root of various health problems. The free health screening event features tests valued up to $200, and also includes such things as a take-home breast self-exam gel packs, blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, body mass index and vision tests.
"Sam's Club is proud to have provided more than 700,000 women's health screenings last year, and is pleased to again offer a free health resource during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to women in communities nationwide," said Jill Turner-Mitchael, SVP of health and wellness.
