Walgreens and National Urban League Free Assistance to Communities

A well-deserved drive to Fort Lauderdale was in perfect order as part of our partnership to experience  Walgreens and the National Urban League community outreach program dedicated to providing free preventative and early detection health services to urban and at-risk communities across the country. Now through November, Walgreens will use the tour to help provide free health tests, assessments, education and consulting services to Americans in select markets nationwide.

At The Walgreens Wellness Tour I  was greeted by the friendly team Ted, Ashley and Gonzalo, who explained the simple process of signing up for Free Health Tests. And we proceeded into the Wellness Tour bus for the following tests:

•Total Cholesterol Levels
•Glucose Levels
•Blood Pressure
•Comprehensive Weight Assessment Test:
•Body Weight – Body Mass Index
•Body Fat Percentage – Skeletal Muscle Percentage
•Body Age – Resting Metabolism – Visceral Fat

I wish more people would find out that the program does not take a lot of time from their daily routine and the time spent will be worth receiving valuable and useful information. Now I know for a fact that I have to take care of my Cholesterol and that my body age came at 37 years old which made me happy LoL!!! Our health is the single most important priority we should have in life because without it we are useless.

Thank you Walgreens and National Urban League for joining forces and visiting Fort Lauderdale August 4 through 7. Hopefully communities in Dania and Plantation can take advantage.
