CVS’s MinuteClinic to provide free heart health screenings on Valentine’s Day


WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Health’s MinuteClinic is offering a special Valentine’s Day service for its customers. The retailer’s medical clinic on Tuesday is providing free “Know Your Numbers” heart health screenings at its more than 1,100 locations nationwide. Men and women who visit MinuteClinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. can receive a free heart health preventive screening to learn five key personal health numbers that can reduce their risk of heart disease: total cholesterol, HDL (good) cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and body mass index.

"Cardiovascular diseases kill nearly one in three women in the U.S. each year. It's a daunting statistic and the reason MinuteClinic is pleased to offer these free screenings on Valentine's Day," said Angela Patterson, DNP, FNP-BC, NEA-BC, and Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer at MinuteClinic. "During the screenings, patients will receive vital information about their health and will be counseled on ways to reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke. Most importantly, our providers will be arming them with the tools they need to take charge of their health."  

The free Valentine’s Day health screenings are inspired by CVS Health’s new three-year sponsorship of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement, a national campaign to raise awareness of heart diseases and stroke in women to empower them to take charge of their heart health. CVS has pledged a minimum of $10 million during the next three years to support this cause.

In addition to free heart health screenings, CVS Pharmacy customers can support Go Red For Women by making $1, $3 or a larger donation at the register at 7,900 CVS Pharmacy locations nationwide.

Every MinuteClinic locations offers comprehensive health screenings year-round.
