The Health Mart Healthy Living Tour is on the road to celebrate and recognize community pharmacists for the important role they play as trusted healthcare providers in their communities—helping to educate and counsel on a variety of conditions that can be better managed with the help of a pharmacist. Aboard the Health Mart Healthy Living Tour’s 40-foot health screening unit, tour staff will provide complimentary health screenings for risks associated with high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol and obesity. They will be visiting Preston Pharmacy and Home Medical on Thursday, March 13th from 3-6pm at 6022 Atlantic Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32211.
Now in its fifth year of operation, the Health Mart Healthy Living Tour is aiming to raise awareness of the important role community pharmacists play in the healthcare system, providing broader access to clinical services and medication counseling, which helps improve the quality of care while lowering healthcare costs. The Health Mart Healthy Living Tour will encourage consumers to initiate healthcare conversations with Health Mart pharmacists who can partner with them for better health.
Through complimentary health screenings at this pharmacy event, tour staff will identify people at risk for various health conditions and encourage them to manage these conditions with help from Health Mart® pharmacists, who advise on ways to reduce medication spending and better understand drug regimens and complications. Health Mart® recognizes that community pharmacists are essential to the towns and cities where they live and work.
