Free health screenings at Carrollwood Sam's Club

Tampa, Florida - Sam's Club on North Dale Mabry in Carrollwood is offering free diabetes and vision screenings for members and the public on Saturday, September 8 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1.9 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed each year, and the disease is the leading cause of new cases of blindness in adults in the U.S. If trends continue, 1 out of 3 U.S. adults will have diabetes by 2050.

As diabetes diagnoses continue to rise, a simple screening can help more Americans proactively manage their health. Sam's Club's free diabetes screenings are valued at more than $150 and include:

  • Glucose test
  • A1C tests (blood test for diagnosed diabetics that measures blood sugar)
  • Vision tests
  • Blood Pressure
  • BMI

"Knowing the links between risk factors, choices and solutions prepares our members to better manage--or even prevent--diabetes," said Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president, Sam's Club Health and Wellness in a release about the screenings. "As we offer the diabetes screenings for a second year, I am reminded of Member stories where they came in for a screening or product samples and learned about a possible health problem, which led them to make an appointment with a health care provider. It is stories like this that remind us why we offer these invaluable free screenings to our communities."

Sam's Club has extended its health offerings this fall to include immunizations from registered nurses that include flu and pneumonia shots, as well as shingles, chickenpox, whooping cough and six other vaccines. The immunization program is a collaboration between Sam's Club and Mollen Immunization Clinics and available to anyone above the age of three.

The Carrollwood Sam's Club is located at 15835 North Dale Mabry Highway.
