Walgreens And The National Urban League Wants To Empower Communities To Take Back Their Health
Walgreens and the National Urban League have joined together for the ninth year for The Walgreens Wellness Tour community outreach program dedicated to providing free preventative and early detection health services to at-risk communities. Over the last eight years, The Wellness Tour has administered more than 570,000 health tests valued at $12.8 million in communities throughout the United States.
Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to partner with Walgreens and The National Urban League for the Walgreens Wellness Tour throughout the tri-state area. As a huge champion of Walgreens health and wellness initiatives, I’m thrilled to help spread the word about The Walgreens Wellness Tour and share my experience during the latest stop in Jersey City, New Jersey.
Walgreens and the National Urban League want to empower individuals with the knowledge and resources for the prevention and early detection of today’s leading chronic diseases. Together Walgreens and the National Urban League are committed to providing urban and at-risk communities access to valuable health tests that deliver key insights and assist individuals in the pursuit of happier and healthier lives.
During my visit, my brother and I were able to get a quick check up measuring key health indicators including total cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, body mass index, body composition, visceral fat, real body age and more. This quick and easy 20-minute testing and consultation concluded with a certified wellness technician to discuss results and tips for creating healthier living habits.
