Macon Walmart stores to offer free health screenings Saturday

Wal-Mart stores across the state of IN will be among 4,700 locations nationwide to host Wal-Mart Wellness Day from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. Saturday.

All Mississippi Walmart stores will be among 4,700 locations nationwide to host the event from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.

Each store will offer free health screenings to anyone who stops into the store September 23.

The free health screening event provides local residents an opportunity to learn valuable health information like blood glucose, blood pressure, body mass index, low-priced immunizations and, in select locations, customers can also take advantage of free vision screenings.

The American Diabetes Association estimates almost eight million people with diabetes are undiagnosed.

This will be the second Walmart Wellness Day for which the company has teamed up with the American Diabetes Association to provide support beyond event day, offering additional support to customers whose screening results indicate a risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
