Sam's Club to host men's health screenings


BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Sam's Club is marking Men's Health Month in June by offering free men's health screenings at its pharmacies.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 9, the first 75 participants at each club location with a pharmacy will receive a prostate-specific antigen test to screen for accelerated PSA protein levels in the blood, which is a symptom of benign prostate enlargement and/or prostate cancer, Sam's Club said. Additional free screenings include body mass index and blood-pressure test (limited to the first 50 participants at each location), with the total offering valued at up to $150. Sam's Club said the May/June issue of its exclusive bimonthly wellness magazine, Healthy Living Made Simple, also highlights basic lifestyle choices to help manage men's health.

Later this summer, Sam's Club said it is supporting communities with free health screenings focused on healthy aging on July 14.

"Sam's Club has provided more than one million free screenings since March 2011, and we continue to explore ways for our communities to manage their health needs with the convenience and value our members deserve," Sam's Club SVP health and wellness Jill Turner-Mitchael said.
