A Look At Mobile Health: Walgreen’s Way To Well Health Tour 

Access to healthcare is everywhere these days thanks to programs like the Walgreen’s Way To Well Health Tour. The tour offers free health tests and risk assessment to underprivileged communities so they can have access to better healthcare. The Way To Well Health Tour is sponsored by Walgreen’s along with AARP.  The types of tests offered include total cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, body mass index, composition, skeletal, muscle, resting metabolism, visceral fat, real body age, and body weight testing. The four customized tour vehicles will scour the United States region and Puerto Rico.

            The tests are available to individuals 18 years of age or older.  Patients should allow about 20 minutes for testing time. After the tests are completed, patients will discuss their test results with a Walgreen’s pharmacist and a member of the certified wellness staff and pharmacy technicians may also assist the pharmacist at the wellness event.

            “We are pleased that this community outreach program will serve underserved and multicultural communities in need. This tour will deliver critical health and wellness services on behalf of America’s growing population over 50,” said A. Barry Rand, CEO of AARP.

            Access to affordable healthcare has been a theme of the nation for some time and continues to be a priority for many.  When patients have better access to healthcare they can then be proactive about their health and health concerns they may have.
