Walmart stores will be hosting the first Walmart Wellness Day event of the year on Saturday, Jan. 20. This free health screening event provides residents an opportunity to learn valuable health information, including:

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

New this year, Walmart is introducing a virtual reality experience in select stores to assist with smoking cessation. According to the CDC, approximately 18% of adults in Pennsylvania smoke cigarettes regularly. This free resource is intended to be a step toward quitting tobacco. 

Since its first Walmart Wellness Day event, the company has provided more than 1.7 million free screenings and 225,000 immunizations to people across the country, helping countless customers uncover existing health problems. For some, the screenings have been life-saving. Hundreds of thousands of Americans turn out for each Walmart Wellness Day event, making it America’s largest single-day health fair event.  

These screenings will take place at all NWPA Walmart Stores on Saturday, January 20th from 10am to 2pm.
