Recognizing how challenging it can be for some people – including busy parents! – to take the time to get a check-up, Sam’s Club just announced that it has teamed up with health technology company higi to make free, self-service health screening stations available at most Sam’s Club locations with a pharmacy (622 locations), as part of the company’s overarching commitment to making healthy living more accessible.
These screening stations are able to assess each user’s blood pressure, pulse, weight, and body mass index (BMI). Users can also track their health information over time and share it with others through higi’s online platform, which can aggregate data from over 80 health devices, activity trackers and apps.
The higi self-service stations complement the existing free health screening program that Sam’s Club offers every month from January through October to both members and the public. In fact, the higi rollout at Sam’s Club aligns with the timing of the company’s ‘Healthy at Heart’ screening, which will take place this Saturday, February 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at all locations with a pharmacy, while supplies last. This screening is valued at up to $150 and will include the following tests:
- Total cholesterol
- HDL (good cholesterol)
- Blood pressure
- Body Fat Percentage
- Vision (not available at all locations)
- Hearing (not available at all locations)
