YMCA of the USA announced a $1.25 million grant from the Sam's Club Giving Program today that will expand healthy living opportunities in underserved communities through the YMCA of the USA. Specifically, the grant is helping the YMCA to expand its Healthier Communities Initiatives to address health disparities among minority individuals and families and the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program. Through the Initiative, the YMCA will also link healthcare providers, clinical settings and community-based organizations to predominately African American/Black and Hispanic/Latino communities to help guide individuals and families to appropriate programs.
Sam's Club Pharmacy locations provide savings, services and preventive care to members and the public, including $4/$10 generic prescription prices, additional savings on name-brand prescriptions for Savings members, and Plus member access to the Extra Value Drug List, which features 10 to 30 percent savings on select name-brand and generic prescriptions. Sam's Club also provides pharmacist-administered flu shots and 9 other important adult immunizations that help to prevent against serious disease.
Sam's Club features pharmacy benefits and health tips about diabetes and the importance of regular check-ups in the September/October 2013 issue of Healthy Living Made Simple magazine. With the highest circulation of any health-focused publication at 8 million, Healthy Living Made Simple is available at Sam's Club Pharmacy, Member Service counters and online at SamsClub.com/healthyliving.
