JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Saturday’s Wellness Day at Walmart aimed to help people live better and save money, offering an array of free services and health information.
When customers went shopping at Walmart on Greenway Drive in Jackson, they say they weren’t expecting balloons and tables decked in free goods.
Shopper William Singleton said he was just there for a money order and found out he needs glasses.
“I had the vision done and I realized my near-sighted is not as good as my far-sighted,” Singleton said.
He also had a cholesterol screening.
“I don’t eat healthy like I should, so that made me want to find out my status on my cholesterol,” he added.
Free screenings offered included vision, cholesterol, blood sugar and body mass index, which were accompanied by free, healthy snacks and coupons.
Walmart holds the health events four times per year, at stores everywhere. Check with your local store to find out when pharmacy reps are hosting it.
