October is a time when every woman should consider going in for an annual mammogram, but there are additional health issues that women should be aware of and be actively monitoring.
To celebrate women and encourage them to take control of their health this month, Sam’s Club is offering free women’s health screenings for both members and the public on Saturday, October 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at all Sam’s Club locations with a pharmacy (599 locations nationwide).
The screenings are valued at $250 and include tests for:
- TSH (thyroid) testing – thyroid conditions can often affect a woman’s overall health, including depression, weight and energy levels
- Blood pressure
- Total cholesterol
- HDL (good cholesterol)
- Risk ratio
- Body mass index
- Vision (not available in all locations)
This is a great opportunity for all women to get a healthy checkup. It’s always best to catch things early so treatment will be more effective.
