Free Health Screenings At Sam's Club

Posted: Updated:

Sam's Club is hosting free oral care and health screenings on Saturday. The screenings will be held at the locations:  3900 Grants mill Road, Irondale, 3053 John Hawkins Parkway, Hoover and 201 Lakeshore Parkway, Homewood.

The health screenings will include non-invasive oral health questions, dental tablets, vision, body mass index, just to name a few.

Recent studies show oral health issues as identifiers of both diabetes and heart disease. People who are suffering from serious gum disease are 40 percent more likely to have another chronic condition.

"This is great for Irondale because we are a close knit family club. People look to us for their health concerns," said Irondale Sam's Club manager, Gregory Minard.

The screenings begin at 11 a.m. and will last until 3 p.m.
