Sam's Club offers free health screenings

Posted: Updated:

Ten months out of the year, Sam's Club offers free health screenings on the second Saturday of the month.

This October, in support of breast cancer awareness month, Sam's Club was giving away breast self-exam kits.

"Sam's Club is providing 25,000 tests estimated per month in the months of January through September, and a lot of people taking advantage aren't seeing their doctor so it's very important because we can screen for these early testing results," Jamie Tooley said.

Other services offered this Saturday were blood pressure tests and thyroid and cholesterol screenings.

Doctors say early detection is key in good health.

On average 60 people take advantage of the screenings each month, which held true this Saturday.
