Free health screenings in Tucson

Posted: Updated:

There's a way you can get important information about your health, and it's all free.

The AARP Walgreens Wellness Tour is making it's way through the Tucson area.  Everyone who stops by the big bus can get screened for cholesterol, glucose levels, blood pressure, body mass index and bone density.

"Prevention is key to staying healthy so we like to encourage everyone 18 or older to come out and take advantage of these screenings while we are here in your area," said health screener Veronica Marmolejo.  "There are nine customized buses and we travel the country giving out free health screenings throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico."

Monday the bus will be at the Walgreens on St. Mary's near Silverbell.
