PHOENIX -- It's hard to find anything free these days, but thanks to a new program from Walgreens, some free health care may be rolling into a neighborhood near you.

The 'Walgreens Way to Health Van' is touring around the valley, bringing free medical tests to area residents.

Patients can come aboard for three free health tests, including total cholesterol/glucose, blood pressure and a comprehensive weight assessment. The tests take about 20 minutes.

No health insurance is needed. Patients can just walk in and sign up. Tests will be administered only to those 18 years or older.

And, folks who come in for health tests will be given free, one-year memberships to AARP.

On Wednesday's Good Morning Arizona, Scott Pasmore climbed aboard the van for a tour, and a quick check of his blood pressure.

"Early detection is key to prevention," Karen Mulch of Walgreens tells us. "So this is why we're doing all of this."

The van will be stopping at various Walgreens locations around the valley this month. Locations and hours are listed below.
