Free health screenings around Birmingham

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM - AL -

The Walgreens Way to Well Health Tour is now in Birmingham.  The tour provides free health tests, assessments, education and consulting services to local communities.  For people who don't have insurance or think they don't have the time to go to the doctor's office for a check up, the doctor's office on a tour bus is a great option.  It is fast and free.

Tests include total cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, body mass index, body composition, skeletal muscle, resting metabolism, visceral fat, real body age and body weight.  Collectively the health tests, valued at over $100, are administered to adults age 18 years and older by certified wellness staff and can be completed in approximately 20 minutes.  The wellness tour will hit several locations in Birmingham between Friday and Monday.

    Police in Gadsden are trying to return hundreds of stolen items to their rightful owners. Captain Paul Cody said officers bust a large fencing operation this week. Joe Pearl, 75, is the suspect in the case. It took a long time to sort through and document a very wide range of stolen property. "We've collected a lot of stuff," Cody said. "Toilet paper. We have non-firearms related weapons, we have karaoke machines, musical instruments, car stereos, underwear."More >>
