BENTONVILLE, Ark. — 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 retailer announced Wednesday.


 


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);

“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.”
