Walgreens is launching the 2014 Walgreens Way to Well Health Tour with AARP — a community outreach program dedicated to providing free preventive and early detection health services to communities across the country — for adults ages 18 and older.

Now through December, Walgreens will use the tour to provide free health tests, assessments, education and consulting services. These tests include: total cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, body mass index, body composition, skeletal muscle, resting metabolism, visceral fat, real body age and body weight. Learn more about each test here.

Afterward, participants will consult with a Walgreens pharmacist or certified wellness staffer about their results (for free!). All participants will receive a free, one-year AARP membership. Participants under the age of 50 can  pass the free AARP membership on to an eligible adult, and existing members will receive a one-year extension on their current  membership.

“The free health tests offered provide valuable insight into your overall health and wellness. They are a great way to learn how to make changes to improve your health and reduce the risk of common chronic illnesses,” said Harry Leider, M.D., Walgreens chief medical officer. “Walgreens purpose is to help people get, stay and live well and by providing these free preventive and early detection health services, we aim to improve the everyday health of Americans nationwide.”
