Getting sick: Fact vs. Fiction
If deductibles and co-pays are making it cost-prohibitive to get your regular health screenings, you might want to check out the health fairs at Sacramento-area Walmart stores on Saturday.
In a news release, Walmart officials noted that wellness goals are at the top of everyone’s list at the start of each year, and that starts with a solid game plan. At the event, they said, attendees can get free health screenings, which include:
▪Getting their cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose levels checked.
▪ Learning to turn wellness goals into a game they can win.
▪ Using virtual reality technology to identify their “real age” – the age their bodies feel, that is.
To participate, go your nearest Walmart store from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Company officials said it will hold follow-up wellness fairs in April, July and September to help people stay on track.
