Healthy Living: CVS Project Health

Given our recent health kick around here at LoveBrownSugar (see here for Christina's Whole 30 proclamation), we're taking a much greater interest in doing what's absolutely best for our bodies. Health is something that can be easily taken for granted, especially when the simplest of things such as seeing a doctor for a check-up proves to be not so simple, for various reasons. Whether it's time commitment, or lack of funds, we've all been guilty. Committed to serving multicultural communities, this year, CVS Pharmacy launched Project Health

Project Health provides free, preventive health screenings in African American and Latino communities around the country during key health awareness months. This August is Immunization Awareness Month, so Project Health is offering “free health screening events focusing on vaccination reviews, vision acuity, glucose, blood pressure and BMI (Body Mass Index) for individuals who have difficulty accessing preventive care.” Because on-site shots will not be offered, every Friday this month is “Flu Voucher Friday.” This means that with the completion of each screening, you will receive a voucher for a flu shot that you can redeem at any CVS Pharmacy starting in September. And they’re not done yet - you'll also receive a $5 coupon to use at CVS (every bit counts yall!)

So, you get a) free check up that may quite possibly save your life, and b) $5 in CVS cash to spend. Win-win, no? If you live in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C, you have access to Project Health. 

To find an exact location, visit www.cvs.com/projecthealth. And hurry, today is the last day to get your hands on that flu voucher. Don't say we didn't tell you!
