An easy and affordable way for people to take control of their health — that’s the premise driving the expansion and frequent availability of free health screenings at Sam’s Club, according to Jill Turner-Mitchael, SVP of consumables and health and wellness.
The nation’s eighth largest retailer and the warehouse division of Walmart is planning to give Sam's Club members early access to exclusive savings on some of the most sought-after holiday items and Thanksgiving meal must-haves.
Sam’s Club pharmacy manager Sarah Caven loves people, and it shows in how she treats the patients at the company’s warehouse club in Mankato, Minn. “I know it’s a cliché, but I’m a people person,” she said recently. “I love the opportunity to talk to the patient. I see them a lot more than they see their physician, and I know that their contact with me is important for them.”
The donations — $2,500 each from Sam’s Club, matched by $2,500 from the USCCF — opens doors for students across the country ages 11 to 18 to go through the process of starting and launching a real business.
