Throughout the year at your local Walgreens, you will be able to learn more about the steps you can take to help prevent heart disease, cancer and diabetes. This February, we're celebrating Heart Health Month with the American Heart Association's Life's Simple 7TM program. Visit your local Walgreens for essential prevention tips, health testing events and to help us in the fight against heart disease.
As part of our commitment to help you on your way to wellness, Walgreen is launching Walk with Walgreens in March, a program to inspire everyday healthy habits and reward you for reaching personal health and wellness goals.
Walgreens Brand Health and Wellness products will now give back every day. Purchase of Walgreens Brand products helps support our mission of bringing wellness services to local communities.
Beginning February 1, 2011 through January 31, 2012, 1˘ from the purchase of every Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Product, up to $3 million annually, will support bringing preventive wellness services to local communities through the Walgreens Way to Well FundTM.
The Walgreens Way to Well FundTM will provide free preventive health tests as well as other health and wellness services and education to local communities. Some of those services will include preventive health tests through the National Urban League Wellness Tour and vouchers redeemable in select stores.
