What: New Year’s resolutions are just around the corner, making it the perfect time to set health and wellness goals for 2010. Research shows the top concerns of consumers during the early months of the year include weight loss, eating right, smoking cessation and reducing stress.

Sam’s Club is doing its part by offering free Health Screenings in more than 300 of its locations where guests can get access to some vital tests to check their blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose and Body Mass. During the Health Savings Check-up events nationwide, attendees can check prices on prescriptions and over-the-counter medications against other retailers and Sam’s Club. Membership is not required to use any Sam’s Club pharmacy and non members are welcome to attend the health events. A 10 percent service fee applies to non-member purchases outside of the pharmacy.

As more people look to take control of their health and prevent illness, Sam’s Club offers a variety of solutions including quality name-brand and private label health and wellness products as well as healthy meal solutions and fresh produce at superior values. In addition, Sam’s Club guarantees it will beat any competitor price on branded prescriptions.
