Walgreens Take Care Health Tour

I came across this info on Slick Deals and thought it was pretty neat. They are not coming to my state though. Bummer.

The Walgreens Take Care Health Tour is on a 300-city, 12-month nationwide health screening tour that features 10 customized traveling education and health-screening vehicles. The program will travel more than 240,000 miles to offer six free screenings:
  • Total Cholesterol Levels
  • Blood Pressure
  • Bone Density
  • Glucose Levels
  • Waist Circumference
  • Body Mass Index
These services are worth more than $115 in value and no appointment is necessary.

The tour aims to bring free screening services and better health awareness to local communities throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Many diseases can be detected through screenings long before any symptoms are noticed, making awareness the key to remaining healthy.

This year, the tour plans to provide 1.5 million screenings, valued at more than $35 million. After receiving results, visitors are encouraged to see their doctor regarding any concerns.

Call toll-free 1-866-484-TOUR to find a tour stop near you.

You can also look on the website to see where the tour is going. The tour schedule is available by clicking on 'tour schedule' on the right.

It sounds like the Walgreen's mobile tour should be a big hit. With the ever increasing numbers of uninsured and underinsured, many individuals are turning to health fairs for their preventive health needs. It makes sense but for the best outcomes a copy of your results should be sent over to your doctors office also.
