CVS Pharmacy announced in September the launch of Project Health, CVS Health’s 12th annual free health screening campaign. Happening now through December 17, 450 Project Health wellness events will deliver more than $5 million worth of free health services in select CVS Pharmacy locations across 10 multicultural communities with a large number of uninsured or underinsured Americans.

"Project Health is part of CVS Health's commitment to improve access to health care and ensure that cost isn't a barrier to important preventive services," said Troyen A. Brennan, M.D., chief medical officer of CVS Health. "Our free health screenings can help identify health concerns or risk factors for participants who may not have access to care otherwise."

Project Health events will be held from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at select CVS Pharmacy locations. For a full calendar of Project Health events, visit www.cvs.com/projecthealth (in Spanish: www.cvs.com/proyectosalud).
