Project Health, our annual health screening campaign, is held at select CVS Pharmacy locations in select markets nationwide.
The free wellness program delivers an array of comprehensive health risk assessments, including blood pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI), glucose and total cholesterol screenings. The screening events also feature our smoking cessation program and offer participants information about their health insurance options.
Improving Access to Health Care Services
Project Health is part of our company’s efforts to improve access to health care and ensure that cost isn’t a barrier to important preventive services. Our free Project Health events are held in communities with large multicultural and uninsured populations. They are open to everyone and do not require an appointment.
