I am super excited to be helping Walgreens get the word out about their “Way to Well Health Tour” this summer. The Walgreens Way to Well Commitment® is focused on improving your everyday health through the prevention and early detection of today’s leading diseases, like heart disease, cancer and diabetes. As someone who has struggled this last year with managing my health and wellness (especially with the amount of stress I’ve been under), I’m thrilled that Walgreens is providing me with simple and easy programs that will guide me in the right direction.
The Walgreens Way to Well Health Tour is a community outreach program dedicated to providing free preventative and early detection health services to communities across the country. The tour will also introduce visitors to the Walgreens Balance Rewards for healthy choices program, which rewards members for healthy choices such as walking, running and weight management, while also providing access to online communities to help reach personal health and fitness goals.
The tour offers free health tests valued at over $100 that give important insight into visitors’ overall health. The tour also provides consultations so that visitors can understand their results. At the tour, visitors will also be introduced to the Balance Rewards for healthy choices program that rewards people for healthy choices they make every day, like eating right, being active and even getting health screenings like the ones provided on the bus. If readers sign up for Balance Rewards before visiting the tour, they can earn points for their visit.
(By the way, don’t let the fact that AARP is participating in this too make you think that this is just a program for the “older” people in your community. The #WayToWellTour is for EVERYONE that’s 18 years of age or older!)
Here’s another great service that the Way To Well Health Tour is providing, at tour locations participants can learn how to use fitness devices (like FitBit) and digital applications to help track their personal health and fitness goals and how to sync them to auto-log their healthy activities into their Balance Rewards account. I love this! My phone is permanently attached to my hand (just kidding, but it feels that way), and to have someone teach me how to use digital applications nad devices to do something healthy is a big deal!
