Dailycsr.com – 20 June 2016 – According to a “new survey”, almost ninety one percent of men consider “maintaining their health” is an important aspect of life, while only fifty seven percent of men visit the doctor only when they face any health issue.
Therefore, a survey strives to find the reason which could “incite more men to get a routine health checkup”, wherein seventy three percent of subjects reported that they would go for a check-up “if it was free”, while another fifty six percent said that they could be more regular in carrying out their check-up in case the same was scheduled “over the weekend”.
Keeping the above mentioned information in mind, Sam’s Club has organised “free health screenings for both members and the public on Saturday, June 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., while supplies last”. Moreover, the said endeavour has been undertaken to recognise the “Men’s Health Month”.
In fact, the heath check-up conducted in Sam’s Club will be provided free of costs, whiel the information will be kept confidential. Furthermore, the facility will be provided to “the public at all Sam’s Club locations with a pharmacy”. The check-up value would add up to approximate “$150”, while the list of tests conducted will feature:
  • Glucose

  • HDL (good cholesterol)
  • Blood pressure
  • Body fat percentage
  • Vision (not available at all locations)
  • Hearing (not available at all locations)
The Corporate Communication’s Director at Sam’s Club, Tara Raddohl said:
“While men are well known for avoiding the doctor, the truth is that many of them say their health is a priority and that they would get a checkup if it was more accessible. We look forward to hosting these free health screenings as an easy way for men in the communities that we serve to learn more about the state of their health.”
