Walmart to Host Free Health Screenings throughout San Diego County-September 23

San Diego County CA— San Diego Walmart stores will be among 4,700 locations across the country to host Walmart Wellness Day on September 23, 2017, 10:00am-2:00pm. This free health screening event provides San Diego residents an opportunity to learn valuable health information like:

  • Blood glucose
  • Blood pressure
  • Body mass index
  • Low-cost immunizations
  • And in select locations, customers can also take advantage of free vision screenings

This will be the second Walmart Wellness Day for which the company has teamed up with the American Diabetes Association to provide support beyond event day, offering additional support to customers whose screening results indicate a risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The American Diabetes Association estimates nearly 8 million people with diabetes are undiagnosed. Each Walmart customer who learns of potential risk will be offered the opportunity to receive follow up information from the ADA. Tens of thousands of customers took advantage of this free service following the previous Walmart Wellness day event in June.
