WOONSOCKET, R.I. – CVS/pharmacy has launched its annual Project Health wellness campaign, in which it vows to deliver more than $15 million worth of free health screenings to multicultural communities across the United States.
More than 750 Project Health events will be held at selected CVS/pharmacy retail locations in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Events will also be held at select CVS/pharmacy stores in Puerto Rico.
Project Health will offer an array of free comprehensive health risk assessments, including body mass index, blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose screenings and smoking cessation counseling. Additional screenings that will be offered include dental care in October and bone density in May and November.
Information and education will also be offered each month based on recognized health awareness themes, including nutrition assessment, lifestyle stress tests and breast cancer education. Children age 7 and older may participate in this year’s screenings with parental consent.
“Project Health makes it easier for our customers to make their health a priority, offering them health risk assessments free of charge right in their neighborhoods,” stated Dr. Troy Brennan, executive vice president and chief medical officer at CVS Caremark Corp.
