Free Men's Health Screenings Nationwide This Saturday Offered by Sam's Club

June is Men’s Health Month and with Father’s Day just around the corner, it is the perfect time to show fathers and grandfathers how much you care by ensuring they are happy and healthy. This year, you can do that for free just by taking them “shopping” this Saturday.

Did you know?

  • Half of men over the age of 50, and 90% of men over the age of 80 will experience symptoms of an enlarged prostate
  • About 1 in 6 men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with prostate cancer
  • Prostate cancer can be treated if caught early so it is important for men to be routinely screened.
Sam’s Club observes Men’s Health Month by offering free Men’s Health Screenings on Saturday, June 9 from 11 a.m. to 3.p.m. The screenings will include a Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) test* to screen for accelerated PSA protein levels in the blood, a body mass index (BMI) and blood pressure test.

Screenings like this can save lives, a perfect example is Gary Wackler from Eden, N.C. who participated in a PSA screening at Sam’s Club last year. He said, “My PSA level was 8. By the time I [saw] a doctor six or eight weeks later, my level was 15… it turned out to be an aggressive prostate cancer. Without Sam’s Club, I might have gone another year without a PSA test. That PSA screening may very well have saved my life.”
